Who’s Knocking (The Classroom of My Mind)

No comments

Many clients come into my office asking if it’s possible to remove troubling aspects of their personalities.  Often I might hear:

Can you help me to get rid of my anxiety?

Is it possible to completely eliminate my depression?

How exactly do I totally let go of my anger?

Be Your Best You

No comments

The phrase JUST BE YOURSELF has always confused me when it comes to relating to other people.  Obviously we all want to get along with others.  We want this because it just feels nice, and because relating well to others is correlated with all kinds of perks like better health, an increase in happiness and a longer life.

“Success” is an odd thing to calculate, don’t you think?

No comments

Recently I had to print out and LOOK AT financials from my practice. When I saw the numbers my heart sunk. I felt that I hadn’t done well last year. I felt that I had slacked. And that made me feel guilty.

Then I stopped myself from heading down this path and began talking to myself…(not aloud. well maybe aloud).  So this is how the self-analysis went down.

What to do When Change Isn’t Happening (Otherwise known as contacting your inner rebel.)

No comments

I work with bright clients. Most people that come to see me could pick up any number of self help books how to fix whatever issue they have. Yet sometimes all that knowledge doesn’t work. 

My clients already know all the current wisdom, like:

  1. When you are angry count to ten before speaking
  2. Keep a calorie counter and go to the gym before work
  3. Don’t drink when you feel sad as alcohol is a depressant
  4. Don’t text her if she/him hasn’t texted you back.
  5. Don’t argue when your heart is racing. It is a formula for a blow up.

Everything They Told You is Wrong

You Can Jump Through the Hoops without Believing they Will Make or Break You

Sister somebody once told me in the third grade, “Nicole, your handwriting is terrible.  You will never get anywhere with that handwriting.” I remember trying to pay attention so I could master each task with perfection until I realized it probably wasn’t going to happen.

While at the time I was devastated by the news that my handwriting stunk, now I think, Is this true?  Does my handwriting have to be good?  I mean, do we have to be good at every subject?

Maybe not.  In fact, what I have found in life is that working together with a team of different talents is good enough. It turns out that the things I don’t like to do or am not good at, other people like to do and are good at. If we work together, the job gets done. Why didn’t anyone tell me this before?

Don’t think positively!

No comments

One of the most common ways a client will sabotage their own progress is through negative thinking. You know negative thinking…  It’s when you try to embark upon something and a little voice in your head pops up and says, No!  You can’t.  You never could.  Don’t you remember the time you totally screwed that up?  

My clients who struggle with starting their own businesses say things like:  Maybe this isn’t for me.  Maybe I am better off having someone else call the shots.  Maybe I should go back to what I was doing.  Maybe I am not the type who can do this.
