Did You Know That Despair = Suffering – Meaning?

Quoted from a Tim Ferris blog, with a guy by the name of Chip Conley as a guest post on this one, How to Become an Effective CEO: Chief Emotions Officer

Regret teaches. Fear protects. Sadness releases. Joy uplifts. Empathy unites. Think of your emotions as messages that give you the freedom, rather than the obligation, to respond. One of my favorite quotes of all time comes from Viktor Frankl, author of Man's Search for Meaning:

“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.”

Have a wonderful weekend!
