...How do you want it to be?

A seemingly simple change of perspective, from even just a few words, heard or written, has the power to free us from our often limiting, and unnecessarily held anxieties and fears.

“Many years ago, I was moaning and groaning to my friend Tom about how long it was going to take to finish grad school and fulfill all the postdoctoral requirements to become a psychologist. I was in my mid-thirties and tired of still being a student. I complained that I might even be forty years old, which seemed ancient at the time, before I was licensed. Tom asked, “Do you plan on being forty?” Startled, I said, “Um, yes, I hope so.” “Well, then,” he went on, “how do you want it to be?”
