If you are experiencing any trials and tribulations, you may be feeling stuck in your current situation and it seems like there is no way out. What if you were just at a crossroads where there are two roads you can take?
You look up the one and way it is a bumpy road – it is 5 months, 8 months, 12 months from now and nothing has changed. You still fee low, lonely, upset, anxious, depressed, guilty, worried, confused. In fact, it may feel worse; like life is an uphill battle. The future looks bleak; you don’t even want to look down that way; you see your footsteps dragged along the way, you feel weighed down by your life.
Now look down the other road – it is 6 months, 12 months, 18 months from now and life is great. Just imagine: your issues are solved, you feel happy, released, uplifted, confident, calm, at peace and the future looks bright. It is as if you have woken up, taken charge of your life and running with it. You’ve got energy, you get out of bed full of excitement for the day ahead, you make plans and you set and achieve your goals.
This is what psychotherapy or hypnosis can do for you – help you to make the right choice and get onto the right road. It’s like standing in a room full of control panels and YOU push the buttons you want, not what others demand or expect of you. It is becoming who you are and always wanted to be – the empowered self, embiggened, a force to be reckoned with.
And you know what? It is that easy – a simple choice: which road do I want to take? It’s the power of choice. Keep doing what you’re doing, keep getting what you’ve gotten and have a victim-like life or do what needs to be done to get on the road to a bright future; the life of a victor, one who’s in control and who values themselves and their choice.
I know which road I want to take – I’m out of here for a coffee down the road!
