Whether it's time management, communication, leadership, anxiety, addiction or even parenting, any change actually starts with ourselves.
We often have the impression that if we had that “silver bullet”, that perfect recipe, our life would be much better. We read self-development books, we look for techniques, steps, inspiration from other people who, apparently, have a perfect balance in their lives. Why doesn’t it work in our case?
Yes, theory helps and we all need landmarks, but practice also helps and what helps the most is …. our connection with ourselves, because often the loss of this connection is the cause of many of the inconveniences we feel. And this connection, this exercise of self-awareness begins with the identification and later acceptance of the emotions we feel, emotions that we have learned over the years to hide from everyone, including us.
Our personal emotions are the foundation of our own direction in life. The rest are just landmarks to guide us. I strongly believe that there is no silver bullet or the perfect recipe, only the recipe adapted to your needs at that time, what works for others may not be right for you.
