Are you ready for a ‘modern you’ in the New Year? If so, a good place to start is figuring out which parts of your life need reinvention. Personal, business or both? Secondly, you have to understand: transformation is not an overnight process. You’ll have to let go of a few bad habits, and get comfortable with being uncomfortable. Ultimately, it takes time and commitment to let go and say goodbye to ways that may have kept you stagnant and unhappy. Working with a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and supportive people have been shown to be highly effective in reduction of symptoms and increase in learning more about who you want to be and your long term wellbeing. If you are unsure if this is right for you or unsure of the process call the therapist directly. I find that clients who are highly motivated and take the risk in exploring their past and present situations exhibit more relief. The modern you no longer will have to carry around the suitcase of failures, shame, guilt and “I should of, would of or could of” thoughts and behaviors. On the other hand, you will find that your past “mistakes” can be beneficial in helping you with your future. Don’t avoid putting yourself second this year. Even if you are hesitant to reinvent yourself it is possible to pre-contemplate seeking Counseling. Many have before you and many will in the future. Thoughts then Actions make renovation.
