I treated this topic as a mental health journaling prompt and was surprised at what came out of me as I journaled.
Here is my journal entry!
I think I have the ultimate solution to everyone’s problems and I am going to give it to you right here, right now, in this post.
And if you don’t get it – if the insight in this post doesn’t hit you like a ton of bricks – or doesn’t at least make mountains of sense, then you have been duped by the personal development industry and will need to wake up eventually, if you can.
By the way, the personal development industry NEEDS and all-encompassing insight that unifies us. Some profound underlying principle absolutely should govern every method of personal growth, from NLP to EFT, TFT, hypnosis, positive psychology, affirmation-making, relationship models, and everything else that is promoted to the soon-to-be-enlightened.
With all the promises of quick fixes and endless bliss, you’d think the personal growth industry would be the world’s major religion by now.
With modalities like NLP and other magic making change techniques at our disposal, what more could we ask for? I’ve been actively pursuing mental health and personal growth for 25 years. It’s the only lifestyle that makes sense anymore.
I’ll never go back.
