Responding vs Reacting

Responding vs Reacting

Welcome to this edition of the Weekly Circle—where we start the week with a few ideas that make us think.

This week, we’re thinking about Responding vs Reacting. Bob Proctor put it well:

When you react, you are giving away your power.
When you respond, you are staying in control of yourself.

When something happens to you at home or work, take a breath to stabilize your mind before responding. This split-second difference is not noticeable and puts you in a position of strength instead of weakness.

We'd love to hear from you!

When have you caught yourself from reacting in a negative way and instead took a second to take a breath before responding? What happened? How did you feel?

Warmly,
Jesal
