early childhood experiences. I can hear it already. “Oh, no, don’t give me that ‘Poor Little Kid’ routine!” Okay, I won’t. Instead, I’ll give you “Who IS This Little Kid?” routine. When we go delving into our past to determine underlying dynamics of our psyches, goal is: - Not to cast blame - Not to pass judgment - Not to fob off our responsibility onto someone else We’re not looking for what is good or what is bad, but simply what IS. It is vital that we grant ourselves permission to look closely at what happened to us as very young children. We are searching for clues to Truth of our early history. Our goal is simply to appreciate our own personal saga and become fonder of ourselves in process. As we do so, we will automatically feel more entitled to be happy and fulfilled in both our work and love lives. That is our ultimate goal, and a worthier goal could not be had. Where Else Do You Think You Can Look? If your first reaction is to dismiss this idea as something you’ve heard about before, be aware that “knowing about” something is a far cry from understanding it or applying it. And if you’re one of many who think you “don’t need to go there,” just know that you won’t find your personal truth anywhere else. Whether self-sabotage is ruining our lives or just quietly making us miserable, a start on road to overcoming these self-defeating behaviors can be undertaken on our own. If we should get stuck along road, professional help through private therapists, clinics, and school or job counselors is generally available. Once underlying dynamics of our self-defeating behaviors are exposed and dealt with, it will be much easier to stop self-defeating behaviors in their tracks, before they have a chance to undermine us. Once we reintegrate all of our personal power back into our lives, a whole new vista of possibilities opens up before us. This is a deeply exhilarating experience that none of us should miss.

New Year’s resolution during the summerWritten by Kenia Morales

Don’t get me wrong, nothing is erroneous with implementing goals at beginning of a new year. In fact, I believe it is exciting to start a new year full of fresh ideas. It’s just that there is no perfect timing to implement goals and if you are sure about what you want, why wait so long?
