Feeling like you’re stuck, unfulfilled, lacking purpose or living on automatic pilot are crucial signs that you are not reaching your full potential. If you struggle with the question, “Could I be doing better in life?” or the idea that you could be getting more out of life but not sure how or where to start, you are not alone. Living in a way that actualizes your full potential is a vital human need and one that directly impacts your happiness and sense of meaning in the world.
However, figuring out what you want for yourself in this vast world is not always an easy task, to say the least. This journey of self-discovery for the purpose of self-improvement can be a challenging and sometimes painful process requiring you to take an honest look at your life with all its flaws and joys and to make a bold decision in the favor of change. The prospect of and fear associated with change can be daunting and scary that many people decide to remain stagnate, which may result in internalized anger, emptiness and depression.
We at NYC Therapy Group believe that change is a necessary and crucial part of growth. Often times goals and wants can be repressed, muddled or confused with what others want for you. As such, our first goal in the therapeutic process is to help you identify what it is you want to do with your life. Our second goal is to identify the emotional, psychological and environmental obstacles for reaching those goals for self-actualization. Our third goal is to help you establish a plan to meet those goals and overcome those obstacles.
