HelpKeyGoogle it, to find @pp-iness!

I am amazed at the ease with which we can find out everything there is to know, about any subject imaginable.  Yet the one subject we fail to gain any ‘knowing’ of is ourselves.  We can look up the symptoms we suffer from, or the labels we have been given however there is nothing to be found about the unique person that we are.  We can read how other people with similar experiences to our own feel about those experiences but it does not help, somehow it doesn’t quite fit us.  We have been led to believe there is a quick fix or no fix for all the ills of mankind and all we have to do is Google it, download this app, read this forum or self help book and we will have an answer to sort us out.  However can you find @pp-iness?
I have no apps, forums, blogs or downloads to ‘fix’ you.  I do have the certain knowledge, based on taking thousands of people not at all like you, through a process of self discovery, that you have all the answers within you.  I don’t think you have all you need to know within you, I know you have.  It just requires the right key to open the treasure chest that is your full potential and you will ‘see’.
Neuroscience says, ‘ just think differently’ and you will create new neuro-pathways these will result in new behaviours and although they are right, have you ever tried to ‘just think differently’.  Not that easy when your current thinking has been repeated daily since you were a child.  Do you even know what you think and where those thoughts and beliefs were first formed.  Firstly you need help to become your own observer, step back from yourself and see/ hear what others do. You also need someone who can hold a mirror up to the person you really are.  Step by step you will learn to ‘think differently’ and because it has been a step by step process, rather than an ‘it’ doing it for you, the new pathways will become your familiar route to being you.
A client once told me, although she was a successful business woman she felt like a child hiding behind a big cardboard cut out of a successful business woman and she would soon be found out.  Also it was taking an enormous amount of energy to carry the cardboard cut out around.  I find most people can relate to this feeling in some way and can like her eventually come out and say to themselves, ‘I am amazing’, however it is a very personal journey.  Taking the first step on the journey can seem daunting however once the first step has been taken the rest come naturally, one step at a time.
