I say this every year.
The holidays went to quickly! I can’t believe it’s New Years already!
And yet, like Groundhog’s Day, here I am. Saying the same thing.
I can’t believe it’s New Years already!
With New Years, there is the age old New Years Resolution. Many times, we go for things that we think seem…doable. Lost weight. Go to the gym and/or exercise. Get more organized.
You know…the usual.
This year, I am going to give you a challenge.
Are you scared? Don’t be! You are up to the challenge.
Are you ready? Here is it –
Yep, that’s it.
Do one thing – every day – that scares you. Or something that is uncomfortable.
Here’s the amazing thing about risk. It forces us outside of our comfort zone, and into a place of growth.
A comfort zone is a beautiful place, but nothing ever grows there.
We need motivation! That’s why so many people come to therapy in times when they feel the worst. Because being anxious/depressed/sad/angry/panicky are great motivators for change. We don’t want to feel bad, so we seek out help to figure it out. And figuring it out often means making some positive changes.
Now, when I say take risks…I’m not asking you to do dangerous things. The goal is not to become an adrenaline junkie, but rather learn what you are capable of.
So…what do you think you are capable of for 2018?
