These insights from the following revered thinkers influence, guide and inform my therapeutic work.
“Watch your thoughts, for they become words.
Watch your words, for they become actions.
Watch your actions, for they become habits.
Watch your habits, for they become character.
Watch your character, for it becomes your destiny.”
– Ralph Waldo Emerson
“You cannot solve a problem from the same level of consciousness that created it.”
“The one thing you can’t take away from me is the way I choose to respond to what you do to me. The last of one’s freedoms is to choose ones attitude in any given circumstance.”
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous,talented and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.Your playing small does not serve the world. There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other
people won’t feel insecure around you.
We were born to make manifest the glory of
God that is within us.
It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine,
we unconsciously give other people
permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear,
Our presence automatically liberates others.
“To successfully open the door to heightened
awareness, we must open it inward.”
“True ambition is not what we thought it was. True ambition is the profound desire to live usefully and walk humbly under the grace of God.”
– Bill W. (co-founder of AA)
“Worry is using your imagination to create something you don’t want.”
“Life is not a search for happiness. Happiness is the byproduct of living the right kind of life and of doing the right thing.”
“Most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be.”
