"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."
We live in unpredictable times. From all directions we are bombarded with the unexpected. Whether it is a US Airways plane landing in the Hudson River or a terrorist attack at a fancy hotel in India, we never know what will come next. And, in times like these, that kind of unpredictability can unnerve even the calmest person.
Perhaps the most volatile unpredictability is in the present world of finance. We hear report and report of billions and even trillions of dollars being leveraged to turn the tide of economic disaster. Unfortunately, this crisis is not just on the national or international stage. We just heard some sad news from two of our dearest friends who retired a few years ago. They worked hard all their lives and accrued a modest savings which in recent times dwindled by $250,000.
How should we respond in times like these? Dr. David Weiman, President of Weiman Consulting, has some wise words which can help all of us who are facing tough times. Dr. Weiman, a management psychologist and adjunct professor of psychology at Widener University, recently shared some outstanding insights at a Phoenixville Regional Chamber of Commerce breakfast.
The title of his presentation was Grab a Shovel (and 3 other things you can do) to Conquer Worry and Drive Success in Tough Times. As he began he reminded everyone that "events in the world - both good and bad - are constantly swirling around us. They always have. And they always will." But there is a place where we can find great peace and stability, i.e. "It's inside you."
"You have many resources at your disposal - your core values, your work ethic, your decision-making skills and your ability to take action...All of your knowledge is available right at your fingertips, whenever you need it, quickly and easily."
Dr. Weiman went on to share three ideas "for mastering the current challenges."
