Quote of the Week - Beck

“Everything I’ve ever taught in terms of self-help boils down to this — I cannot believe people keep paying me to say this — if something feels really good for you, you might want to do it. And if it feels really horrible, you might want to consider not doing it. Thank you, give me my $150.” 
~ Martha Beck

Why am I posting this on the first week of the new year?

Well, what if it's accurate?  What if it's really that simple?

Wouldn't this be a lot easier than what you're currently doing, and what I'm currently doing?

Maybe it's too simple; maybe it doesn't work.  The main danger in this line of thinking is the assumption that what feels good for one person will not harm others, i.e. make them feel really horrible.  Perhaps Beck is safe, given her clientele, with this assumption.  (Although maybe they are the 1%…?)

But let's just say, this works.  It's worth a teeny trial, no?

Happy 2014!

So glad to see you on the other side of it all!

(Thank you, give my $150!)
