In his book, How People Change, Allen Wheelis pointed out that changing yourself is pretty simple. If you want to stop being a thief, don't steal. If you want to be a writer, write. Sounds simple -- but it works. Sometimes, if you are lucky, external events force you to change in a positive direction. Rentrepparttar video The Closet (Le Placard). The hero begins as a stereotypically dull accountant. As people begin to believe he is gay, they treat him differently -- and he grows into a new, more powerful person. Can't get moving? If you are really, really unhappy, but you can't get yourself to take even one action step to change your situation, consider some form of psychotherapy. Sometimes you are at a point in your life when it's time to do nothing, but inability to act can signal serious problems, such as clinical depression. Do you want to think out loud about which action to take? Do you want someone to share your thoughts as you try out different actions? Moving -- but you're not sure in which direction you want to end up? These questions suggest you can get help from a career or life coach. Maybe you believe in New Year's Resolutions, or maybe you like to take life as it comes. Regardless, I can promise your 2002 will bring exciting new changes and directions...if you jump off that couch and begin taking action.
