In golf, a small shift in the angle of the swing, will lead to a much bigger difference in the distance at the end point. A small shift at the core, will lead to a bigger shift on the surface.
So in counseling, we try to fix the problem at the core rather on the surface. Behind the curtain rather than what’s in front of the curtain. It’s more efficient and effective that way.
Imagine if we can shift these 3 core beliefs for people.
1. From “I am not good enough” to “I am enough because I am who I am. I am not perfect but I will learn and grow throughout my life.”
2. From “toxic shame” and “I am not lovable” to ￼”I am lovable or likable”.
3. From “It will never change” to “Things can change in any given moment”.
What would the world look like then?
