SleepLetting Go of the Past
You are who you are today due to each moment of your life. You can learn from your mistakes or hardships to become a better person. Some trauma will stay with you for the rest of your life, but you can control what lies ahead.
Our lives are filled with responsibilities. When you think everything is going well, you may hit a bump on the road or have a curveball thrown at you. We recognize your stressors and don't minimize how difficult and trying these may be for you.
The path to addiction recovery and overcoming anger in sobriety will look different for each individual. Don't be afraid to try something new, whether you choose one coping mechanism or a combination of many.
Examining Anxiety and Depression
When your mental health interferes with your ability to function adequately in any area of your life, including work, school, and relationships, or you are experiencing significant distress, it is considered a disorder.
Building a Winning Self-Image
The single, most significant force directing and determining your life is your self-image, whether toward success or failure, fulfillment or frustration, illness or health. It is possible to change how you view yourself. Your self-esteem is a measure of your feelings about your worth. As you think, so you are.
The satisfaction of both parties measures the quality of a relationship. Individuals need to grow separately as well as together. Each member must be able to identify what makes them happy and equally what makes their partner happy.
Relationships must be nurtured to thrive and survive. Every moment is an opportunity to learn something new — about yourself, one another, society, and our community. Spend time listening to your partner. Go beyond words. Take steps to improve and share yourself with your partner more effectively. Stay in control of yourself.
AccountabilityTaking responsibility for your behavior means examining your impact on others and taking ownership of your actions, reactions, and influences.
Understanding AbuseAbuse is taking control and having power over another person. We break abuse down into various forms: physical, psychological, emotional, intimidation, threats, sexual, isolation, using (male) privilege, using children, and economic and social abuse.
Physiological, cognitive, emotional, behavioral, and environmental warning signs are part of avoiding violence, abuse, and control in a relationship.
Choices and Consequences
We must always remember that every choice we make affects us for the rest of our lives. Similarly, every choice we make affects the people around us.
When we better understand our wants and needs, we develop effective strategies for communicating these wishes to those whom we want to receive something from, whether tangible or in the form of help.
This is one of the most important aspects of mastering the Model of Self-Control.
Handling a Crisis
There are three types of crises:
Type I - You are unstable or faced with a particular stressor. This crisis occurs after a bad night's sleep, poor nutrition, or lack of exercise. It may arise after dealing with a negative situation at work.
Type II - Your partner is not doing well. That person might be irritable, agitated, or otherwise psychiatrically unstable. Your partner may be struggling to address their challenges.
Type III - You and your partner are feeling fine, but suddenly you are both faced with a significant stressor, such as a car accident, unexpected financial hardship, or trauma to a child.
Trust is built on understanding your partner's wants and needs. Active listening is learned and practiced. Patience, sacrifice, and generosity are other aspects of a good relationship.
Overcoming Thinking Traps
Thinking traps can appear in many forms, including:
● All or Nothing
● Not Taking Responsibility
● Jumping to Conclusions
Examining Cognitive Distortions
Our beliefs that guide our decisions and set the tone for our actions can be analyzed and challenged for their veracity.
We all make mistakes and are flawed. However, learning how to correct our errant ways and becoming more adept at handling various aspects of our lives make each of us great.
We are unique and have many different experiences, knowledge, and talents.
Engaging Pro-Social Others
Your friends and associates can profoundly impact your choices, decisions, and behavior. Surrounding yourself with positive models, positive influences, and a positive support network is critical to success.
Solving a problem begins with defining the issue. Once we’ve identified what needs attention, we generate as many alternatives as possible. We then choose and implement this option. We finally evaluate our response for its effectiveness.
The key to making good decisions is to carefully weigh the pros and cons of the behavior you choose to engage in. Doing a cost-benefit analysis to determine what and how much energy to invest and what returns can be expected is wise. The risk is generally directly proportional to the reward.
Think you can or think you can’t. Either way, you’re right. Words shape your attitude, outlook, and perspective in life.
Identifying your interests and skills is half the battle, paving the way for you to use wisely the precious time you have on earth and beyond.
The Prosperity Solution
You set the bar as high as you envision, and your belief that you are a money magnet will grow as you think big. You reap what you sow.
At the heart of motivation is ambivalence, or a strong pull in both directions to make a change. The key is to elicit those reasons to make revisions in your life. At the same time, addressing the factors that make a change difficult is equally important.
Boosting confidence starts with positive feedback from others. We thrive on the encouragement of our “audience” but sometimes reach our goals despite the naysayers.
Keeping your mind focused on how you can become more marketable will help you take advantage of the vast resources available to you.
The interview is an opportunity to sell yourself and convince the interviewer (panel) that you are a good fit for the position, and in some cases, you stand out compared to the rest of the competition.
Everything we do is, to some extent, a risk. We may be risking an investment of our time and energy. We may be making an emotional investment. The more we have to gain, the more we have to lose. There is a correlation between the highs and the lows.
