When a client comes to me, we often begin the conversation with what they think is their problem, only to find the undercurrent of her challenge stems from a different area of her life. For example, feelings of frustration with hubby can often flow from resentment about her workaholism and perfectionism due to the need for approval. Once the true problem has been identified, action steps can be more easily taken to create a better relationship with herself AND her hubby!
Today’s Action Step:
What is your problem? Write it down then ask yourself, “If ___ happens, what do you fear will happen next?” Keep asking that question after each answer until you begin to see how it may reflect back to you and a problem you have within your power to change.
