Given that we are currently in the season of New Year Resolutions, it is very likely that you have your own list of goals. Whether they are in the form of mental notes, a written list, or a vision board creation, you have probably reached some kind of resolution for creating change in the year ahead. The Heart Connection Center in Boca Raton, Florida has a number of trained therapists committed in helping you keep your New Years’ Resolutions so that you can have the life you desire. We are happy to be your passenger on your journey through 2020. Here are 3 ways that a therapist can help you reach your New Year Resolutions.
- Help You Gain Goal Clarity
“More important than the quest for certainty is the quest for clarity.” (Francois Gautier)
A therapist can provide you with a safe and comfortable context to process your thoughts, feel your feelings, and digest your experiences. Our therapists aim to “be” with you where you are with no judgment and “hold space for you” so that you can authentically explore the depths of your mind. This will allow you to gain more clarity on how your internal and external experiences drive your behavior. Increased clarity can help you create goals and visions that adhere to the best version of who you are. The right goals will give you the right direction and put a powerful force into play on a universal, conscious, and subconscious level.
- Stir you in the Right Direction
“It is in the set of the sails, not the direction of the wind that determines which way we will go.” (Jim Rohn)
Once you have identified the mental map towards your desired destination, your therapist can stir you in the right direction. He/she can act as a passenger in this journey of life with you, pointing you towards the direction of the vision you collaboratively established. Efforts, courage, and movement are not enough without purpose and direction. If you do not have direction every day you wake up, the possibility of you wandering aimlessly and living other peoples’ dreams increases. A sense of direction will provide you with the focus you need to meet your goals and manifest your vision.
- Be Your Accountability Partner
“ Accountability is the glue that bonds commitment to results.” (Will Craig)
A vision with no action is just a dream. It takes daily commitment and action to manifest your goals. Accountability partners dramatically enhance your ability to achieve your goals. A therapist can help keep you accountable by encouraging you to carry out the action plan and celebrating the steps you make towards your goals. He/she will hold you true to your word and ensure that you are in tune with your vision on a weekly basis.
You deserve to reach your goals and live the life you desire. As your therapist, we will guide you, empower you and gently nudge you toward your goals. If you get off track, we will gently guide you back by brainstorming, problem-solving together in a warm and safe atmosphere. It might not always be easy to reach those goals whether they are to get healthy, find a new job or lead a more peaceful life, we will be by your side every step of the way. You don’t need to do it alone. We can help make this as fun as possible and celebrate with you when you do reach your goals!
