This is the time of the year when we pause amidst our habituated routines and consider making life changes. When it comes to my clients, I typically ask two questions: “How do you want your life to look?” and “How are you hindering that … getting in your own way?”
It’s impossible to act on our dreams and desires until we know how we blindly sabotage them.
Anna is a good example. In one of our sessions, she complained about being treated like a doormat … someone who isn’t valued or respected. She wanted the opposite to be true. “Do I wear a sign on my forehead that says: ‘Walk on me?'”
“Well, yes,” I said. “The bottom line is this: If you don’t want to be treated like a doormat, stop being one.”
Happy new beginnings!
