As you know, I am passionate about achieving your maximum potential. This is a mindset, though, that requires a little push from the outside. Of course, our greatest motivation comes from within, from the very inside. Nevertheless, there are techniques, methods, and other forms of help that can get you where you want more effectively.
In my case, psychotherapy was a powerful tool that helped me become a better business man. Let me display for you how has psychotherapy not only helped me become a better business man but also a better man.
It helped me cope with stress
In the business world, situations that will cause you stress are unavoidable. Actually getting stressed by them can be avoided, though. At least, I know now that I can better handle stress. In the past, whenever I found myself immersed in a rather stressful situation, I would rely on alcohol to try to steam out a little. Besides this, I would face some alimentary issues as sometimes anxiety will make me not want to take in any food, even for days!
Psychotherapy provides excellent exercises for better dealing with stressful situations. I have a more positive perspective on the negative things that might come with the business.
It helped me become more tolerant to others
I have learned to better value other people’s opinions, and even when they still don´t seem reasonable, I have learned to deal with them in the most respective way. Psychotherapy allowed me to see my own vulnerabilities placed before me. I was placed in the position of experiencing what others might have experienced from me. Feeling more capable of tolerating others is a great step forward when it comes to business. As a person, I am in the process of creating stronger bonds with friends and partners in business.
My mental health improved
My overall mental health has improved drastically. I have decided to make plans for relaxation as well. I am supposed to look for simple experiences and those little things that make it worth living. Walking through the park, riding a bike, etc., are activities that even though are physical, they have great worth to one’s mental health. It is a way of detoxing your brain waves and letting only the positive have an actual impact on your persona.
I can better control my anger
Not that I had major anger management issues but I feel I am in better control now. There are no bursts of anger or throwing things away. I feel it is impressive how I go through things with a rather cold head. This is very important, especially at the moment of making important decisions.
Helped me make some adjustments
There are some situations in business that bring you nothing but trouble. Situations such as avoidance, anger, procrastination, or success sabotage can greatly affect your psyche and your performance. Some of them are a result of a lack of emotional management. Sometimes people cannot avoid taking in some of the negative behavior that could make their peers hate them. Making adjustments to overcome these situations has been a major benefit for me as a result of psychotherapy.
Jump into the psychotherapy and counseling wagon and you will see how you become a better you. The “you” that you should aim for.
