If you are like many people, before 2018 even began, you started to imagine a future for yourself that was different from the past. You may have taken inventory of what your life has been like, giving yourself kudos for the things that have gone well, and determining what could be better. Isn’t that what New Years resolutions and goal-setting are about?
What I’m wondering is, how many years have you done the same thing or had the same thoughts and nothing really changed? Do you feel stuck in the same old pattern of living and working and you’re ready to explore what the stuck-ness could be all about? Have you already experienced difficulty fulfilling the commitments you made to yourself on January 1st?
At Memorial Counseling Center, we think we can help. Our small groups based on the Daring Way™ curriculum explore some of the reasons that could keep you stuck from being all you can be and in less than optimal patterns of life.
The Daring Way™ is a highly experiential methodology based on the research of Dr. Brené Brown. The method was developed to help men, women, and adolescents learn how to show up, be seen, and live braver lives.
Brené is the author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Daring Greatly: How the Courage to Be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, and Lead (2012). Her 2010 TEDx Houston talk "The Power of Vulnerability" is one of the top ten most viewed TED talks in the world, with over 11 million viewers. Additionally, Brené gave the closing talk at the 2012 TED conference, where she talked about shame, courage, and innovation.
See the events tab on our website for more information about the groups that begin in February.
