Hey, what’s up. You know, I was thinking today about the secret to success. I was driving in my car, listening to one of my favorite radio stations and a very famous, popular rapper, DJ radio personality was talking about success and how he had to learn to redefine success. In our younger years, we think about success as accumulating the most stuff, the toys like money, watches, clothes, cars, whatever. But, you know, as I age success is like happiness, joy, peace, freedom. And, you know, I was thinking about that as I was driving, listening to this guy talk on the radio about how even that impacts the way that I do therapy, because success is defined by the person that I’m talking to.
And it’s amazing to me, how I do Solution Focused Brief Therapy and I ask every client, what do you hope to achieve? Not one time has some body said more money, more cars, more jewelry, more, whatever, what they say is, I want to be happy. I want to have peace. I want to be a good partner, Dad, Mom, like that’s the key to life, is doing things that cause you to be fulfilled and the people around you to be fulfilled.
So I want you to think about that, not just as you work with clients, but I also want you to think about that as you walk through life, that the key and the secret is doing things that increase joy and happiness in you and the people around you and the people that you love.
And if we can really focus on that, I think we have the building blocks for a good life and we can focus on that in our professional clinical work then I think we have the building blocks to helping other people achieve a good life. And I think that’s a wonderful thing. And I think that’s the point of why we do what we do. And I want to make sure you guys understand that that’s the magic of Solution Focused Brief Therapy is harnessing what it is people want to achieve and then helping them to achieve it.
And in 15, almost 20 years of doing this kind of work, it is surprising to me that it’s never superficial. It’s always heart stuff that people want to achieve. And I think that’s what life is all about. So thanks for watching this video, please like share, go to my YouTube channel, subscribe, hit the bell to get notified and I’ll see you in the next video.
