As a friend and colleague of mine says:
“Without goals you become what you were.
With them you become what you want.”
If you don’t have goals, life just keeps going along the same way. So if you want something different you have to do something different.
BUT – I’ll grant you that sometimes it’s easier said than done.
Do you ever set goals and not meet them?
Do things just keep getting in the way?
Are your afraid of failure?
Are you afraid of success?
There are processes going on in your brain and nervous system that might be holding you back. And it’s not your fault. It’s just the result of what was set down in our brain and nervous system at a very early age.
Luckily what we now know is the brain can change itself through the process of brain plasticity. And we can now make those changes through conscious awareness of new experience.
Psychotherapy takes advantage of the brain’s ability to change. I’d be happy to show you how.
