“You have the right to a great life, and you will have it
as soon as you take responsibility for it.”
Self-responsibility is at the heart of Life Puzzle making. Each and everyone of us, along our life journey, has to decide if we’re going to own and create our lives or we’re going to sit on the sidelines and watch it go by. I’ve been seeing clients for 20 years and I could tell you some real life stories that would have you saying “Well, after all that (abuse, neglect, trauma etc.), how do you expect someone to take responsibility for their life?
Because they can and the sooner they do, the sooner they release themselves from the abuse, neglect, trauma etc. Because it isn’t what happens to you, it’s what you do with what happens to you. And I’ve seen some incredibly traumatized people go on to create some terrific lives. I’ve also worked with people who, having been told they were victims, stopped living their lives and instead, lived as victims, blaming everything and everyone for why their lives are not turning out great. That is, until they started to learn how to build their Life Puzzle. Then they discovered that moving past the trauma, neglect, abuse and focusing on building a whole and dynamic life is possible–and it starts with deciding to take responsibility. No one else can do it for you.
The framework of the Life Puzzle is a guide to help you. Look at the 16 core areas and ask yourself–what did I learn and/or what do I need to learn in this area of my life so I can better take responsibility for my physical, emotional, thinking, sexual and spiritual SELF?
Sometimes, you’ll need help getting started as you break out of the old pattern and begin to build your life. Counseling/coaching can be a first step to help you move forward and set a solid foundation for building your new life! Please contact us if you would like to explore this option.
