You Can Create Positive Growth In 2011 by Cynthia Lindner, MS, Advanced Hypnotherapy
Growth usually equals Positive Change. Traditionally, as we approach the end of one year and the beginning of a new year we find ourselves reflecting on our goals and accomplishments, We also look at what areas we can improve upon, and make plans to do just that. We often resolve to change, make more of our future, and give up old habits. We promise to construct some changes to make things better for ourselves. Though, any time old patterns become uncomfortable can become the time we decide to create a positive change, and growth. The focus may be on personal health issues such as weight control and stopping smoking, or other ways of making life better, like having the family together for dinner more than just a couple of nights a week, to not get so stressed out while driving, or to finally save some money just to be used for an emergency a beginning to fiscal well-being. Unfortunately, by publishing time of this article many people have already given up, but it doesn't have to be that way.
These familiar resolutions are really transitions. And, transitioning into a new lifestyle or behavior successfully requires some planning and self-reflection. When we choose to make such a transition, we need to give up our old definitions of the world, our old ways of doing things, and we find ourselves challenged by the process of 'letting go'. Endings are difficult for most people, even when we are unhappy with the way things used to be because we are more comfortable with what is familiar. The unknown can cause uneasy feelings. Once we let go, however, we enter a period of feeling disconnected from the past but not yet connected to the present this has been called the neutral zone. This is when we can benefit from much self-reflection, and assess what we really want out of life. It is also a time when we can reorient ourselves toward the future and really embrace the new personal growth and having a qualified professional guiding and helping you through the process can help you to achieve the personal growth that you desire. Please feel free to call and have a private discussion about your situation.
