# How to Stay Grounded in Stressful Moments

Growing up in a household with a mother who was a minister and had a master’s degree in counseling psychology, I learned valuable lessons that have helped me navigate challenging situations. On the occasion of my mother’s 75th birthday, I want to share one of the most important lessons that has transformed my life and empowered me to stay grounded in stressful moments.

## The Power of Choice

At the age of five, I had a personal development moment that taught me a crucial lesson about taking control of my emotions. In a situation where my favorite toy, He-Man, was taken by my sister, I felt angry and frustrated. However, my mother’s wise words reminded me that nobody has the power to make me feel a certain way. I realized that I could choose how to respond to the situation and maintain my composure.

## Taking Ownership of Your Internal World

It’s easy to blame external circumstances for our feelings of stress or anger. However, we have the power to choose how we react to these situations. By acknowledging that our internal world is within our control, we can shift our perspective and choose a more peaceful response.

## Viktor Frankl’s Powerful Example

A powerful example of choosing our response in the face of adversity is Viktor Frankl’s experience in a Nazi concentration camp. Despite losing everything, including his family, Frankl refused to let the Nazis dictate his emotions. He held onto the power of choice, deciding not to hate his captors and maintaining his inner strength.

In conclusion, staying grounded in stressful moments requires recognizing the power we have to choose our responses. By taking ownership of our internal world and refusing to be victims of circumstance, we can cultivate peace and resilience in the face of challenges.
