2011: A New Year, A New You!

Transitions such as births, deaths, seasons, and holidays bring opportunity.

An opportunity to feel emotion, analyze, and reflect.

Your Beliefs: Best Friend or Worst Enemy?

by Dr. Christopher on July 21, 2010

Has anyone ever told you that you can’t have something?  Maybe it’s a dream car or dream job?  A significant other?  Or maybe that you will never be the type of person you want to be?  A professional athlete?  A lawyer or doctor?
 
What is your first reaction to comments about you? 
 
Do you agree with them although they are in opposition to your desires, “Yes, you’re right, I am too small, stupid, foul-looking, or insufficient to get what I want.” 
 
Or do you rebel, fueling your tank of persistence so that you only become more clear and focused on your desires?  “Wrong!  I will have my dream car!  I will be a professional athlete!  I will be a lawyer!”  When someone dares to tell the wrong person that he can’t do something that he wants to do, they’re in for a world of surprise when the wrecking ball that is CERTAINTY crashes on their false statements.
