What is my next step?”
At one time or another, in one form or another, we all ask this question.
When a “bad day” develops into a slump; when a job or life transition makes confusion and chaos seem never-ending; when dreams appear shattered; when we are struggling in the dark night of the soul; or, conversely when we achieve a long sought after goal – we ask: “What now?” “What is my next step?”
The answer to this question, “What is my next step?” is often relatively simple. Simple, but not easy. That is, it may be simple to know, but it seems it is anything but easy to accomplish. Being a curious person, I wanted to know the why of this conundrum.
Many years of study, continuing research and education, and a lifetime of experience have convinced me that our ability to thrive and flourish in the world is actualized through a positive psychology. Positive psychology is much greater than the notion of positive thinking. While positive thinking is a necessary ingredient, it can only take you so far. Positive psychology encourages you to focus on your strengths, and to take your next steps in a positive, growth-oriented journey to actualize your potentialities.
My mission is to facilitate individuals and groups to thrive and flourish in life.
My passion is educating the teachers (coaches, counselors, therapists, etc.) in these facilitative techniques so they can reach more individuals than I can alone.
My Research is based in Positive Psychology and is currently focused on thriving in recovery – the topic of my new book: The 13th Step: Thriving in Recovery. I am on the Research Team of the International Quit & Recovery Registry (IQRR) under the leadership of Dr. Warren Bickel, Director of the Addiction Recovery Research Center (ARRC) which is housed at the Virginia Tech-Carilion Research Center.
