Daily Mindset

“I guess it comes down to a simple choice, really. Get busy living, or get busy dying”. – Andy Dufrense, The Shawshank Redemption

Earlier this week, we thought through the meaning of how “Crisis” is written in Chinese. Two symbols, translating to “danger”, and “opportunity”.

A third word to add comes from the Greek “krisis”, where the English word originated from. In Greek, “krisis” translates to “choice”.

Adversity will change us, but how it changes is us the “krisis” – the choice. As we move through our day, when we approach those inevitable challenges and frustrations… we’ll have that choice. To be bitter and upset, or to learn.

Danger, Opportunity, Choice.
