No One Is Coming To Save You...

In Episode 4, I talk about the concept of personal responsibility, and how the phrase "No one is coming to save you" can actually be a gift. I explore the "V" word, plus how Viktor Frankl's book "Man's Search for Meaning" has a beautiful line about reaction vs response.  To be fair, I got the concept right, but totally mashed up his actual quote, so here it is:  "Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom." – Viktor E. Frankl LINKS: Surf Movie In this Episode I mention a surf film - "A Woman's Guide to the World: Surfing the South Island of New Zealand" ... it's a great flick, and is available on Garage Movies here – https://garagemovies.com/shows/surfing-the-south-island – You might also find it on the Facebooks or YouTubes if you search hard enough. But maybe support a great Aussie film company in Garage Movies ;)  Be Do Have Training Series with Jim Fortin Towards the end of this Episode I talk about my mentor Jim Fortin and his awesome Transformational Coaching Program, which I've done a number of times now.
