Many modern therapies now focus on helping people do things differently in their lives, rather than just talking things over. Talking can make you feel better, but it is action that leads to change. In fact, we all know this, but we struggle to put it into practice. There is a gap between what we know and what we do.
It has been said that if you want to be successful then we have to find a way to do things even when we don’t feel like doing them. So, we may want to exercise, or study, or finish our work, or do the dishes, (the list is endless); but we just don’t feel like doing it.
It is like we often find ourselves on a road with two gateways. One gate goes towards the life that we want, where we are acting like the person we want to be. The other gate sometimes looks easier to open, but takes us in the opposite direction. How do we make the right choices?
