“The secret to change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but building the new.” -Socrates
How true this is! If you’ve been there, done that, why keep going back?
I’m a firm believer in the power of change to help us grow and feel more fully alive and engaged in life. We sometimes need the messiness and challenge to our comfort zone to help us find renewed and usually more purposeful meaning to our lives.
Change often forces us to dig deeper into our well of abilities and discover new skills and talents within. Even when change is unwelcome, this powerful transformation can occur and we become stronger because of it.
The Socrates quote probably especially resonated with me right now because I’m in the midst of making significant changes within my business, Radiant Abilities, LLC. While I still provide individual counseling, it’s on a limited basis these days.
This is to allow me time to “focus on the new.” A primary piece of the new is a series of videos which will be released oMver the next year. The videos, geared toward personal development, empowerment, family support, and professional development, will serve three separate audiences – people with disabilities, their family members, and professionals within the disability field.
I am so excited to begin compiling my twenty plus years of professional experience – and of course, my lifetime of living with a disability – into downloadable videos from my website. These videos are intended to help people problem solve and strategize their way to living more fully with a disability.
Topics will include Advocacy from Within, Healthy Sexuality and Relationships (professional version as well), Releasing the Myth of Disability (professional version as well), Empowering Your Child with a Healthy Sense of Self, Defining Oneself, and Taking Risks, to just name a few.
As current subscribers to Radiant Abilities, you’ll be offered a first look at the videos and a gratitude-filled, deep discount on the longer videos.
Know someone who would benefit from all this? Please be to share this post and encourage them to sign up! They’ll get a discount off of Firewalk: Embracing Different Abilities.
Don’t have your own copy yet or need another one? Contact me directly and I’ll give you an even bigger discount.
I’d love to hear your ideas and requests for training or personal development topics for the video, so leave a comment below.
