What’s the best advice you ever received?
“Between stimulus and response, there is a space. In that space lies our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.” - Viktor E Frankl
Viktor’s words taught me that we all have the ability to choose our response. Or, as Viktor says, we all have response-ability.
I first read those words in 2014 after I read Man’s Search for Meaning by Viktor E Frankl. In the book, Viktor recounts a shocking recollection of surviving four separate Holocaust concentration camps. At the end of the day, he endured and chose to transform his perception of life.
Reading that book has helped me find meaning in my life – and that meaning is to live a life of significance. It changed my life. I am no longer held by my past but instead take control of the present to look toward my future.
What do you love most about being part of INPAC?
Everyone works together toward one vision. That vision is helping everyone pursue their dreams.
And because our dreams are interdependent, we all work very hard.
We also don’t just work hard. We play hard. We pick up our gym bags to exercise together, grab pizza after a strategic meeting, and spend a night every now and then singing karaoke together.
If that’s not Ohana, I don’t know what is.
What are you passionate about?
Continuous learning & growth.
I’m always shocked by the vast amount of knowledge out there yet to be learned.
And I want to share that message to the world because I wouldn’t be where I am today if it weren’t for my family who believed in me, the people who taught me, and my friends who supported me every step of the way.
