Your True Suc­cess Starts With a Con­ver­sa­tion

The first step on the way toward emo­tional free­dom and greater busi­ness suc­cess

BC Business Magazine - - Through Conversation -

Ev­ery­one feels down or anx­ious now and then. But if de­pres­sion, anx­i­ety, or a short tem­per are sap­ping you of en­ergy and drive, mak­ing it dif­fi­cult to func­tion and keep­ing you from liv­ing your life to the fullest, it’s prob­a­bly time to take ac­tion.

“If your emo­tional state is in­ter­fer­ing with your abil­ity to per­form your day-to-day ac­tiv­i­ties and ham­per­ing your busi­ness and/ or per­sonal life, it’s a good idea to look for a so­lu­tion that will set you free from those emo­tional pat­terns,” says Through­Con­ver­sa­tion founder Jean-paul Gravel.

Gravel sug­gests you ask your­self: How much is it cost­ing me phys­i­cally, emo­tion­ally, fi­nan­cially, so­cially and re­la­tion­ship-wise to con­tinue liv­ing with th­ese is­sues?

From ther­apy or med­i­ca­tion to healthy lifestyle changes, there are many ap­proaches avail­able, but how do you know what’s right for you?

Ac­cord­ing to Gravel, just as no two peo­ple are the same, there is no “one size fits all” so­lu­tion for de­pres­sion or anx­i­ety. The best way to reclaim your life is to in­form your­self about your op­tions.

Some coun­sel­lors or coaches may show­case their cre­den­tials and ed­u­ca­tion, or de­tail the modal­i­ties they learned — all of which re­ally isn’t di­rectly re­lated to whether or not they can help solve your prob­lem. Stud­ies show that on aver­age, ther­apy or coun­selling only give an added 20 per­cent chance of re­cov­ery. Rather than ask­ing for their ré­sumé, ask about their track record. You want to know how ca­pa­ble this expert is in re­solv­ing what you came for. Are they able to ad­dress the deeper un­der­ly­ing cause of why you got here in the first place? Ask ques­tions, such as: what is the end goal in this pro­gram; what is the suc­cess rate; how long does it take; and how quickly will re­sults be seen? As well, is there sup­port out­side of the of­fice ses­sions in the event that this is needed?

“The treat­ment should be per­son­al­ized espe­cially for you,” Gravel says. “A cus­tom­ized coach­ing pro­gram means that you re­ceive ex­actly what you need, when you need it, at the pace you need, and in the com­mu­ni­ca­tion style that works best for you so that you get the most out of the work.”

You want to find a coach who is con­fi­dent in their method, and who takes your suc­cess se­ri­ously. And you will be much bet­ter off if you work with some­one who is avail­able if you hit a plateau, and who will give you their full at­ten­tion to make sure you get to where you need to be.

“Look for some­one with pre­dictable and proven re­sults, which can be ver­i­fied, so that you feel re­as­sured work­ing with that per­son,” ex­plains Gravel, who for more than 15 years has suc­cess­fully helped peo­ple on their path to emo­tional free­dom.

“You want some­one who is con­fi­dent that they will help you achieve pow­er­ful break­throughs in ev­ery area of your life.” n
