Three Fundamental Concepts to Give Light

We are in the final days of 2015. Many of us use this opportunity to reflect on our work, life and relationships in the year that has passed and try to imagine and plan for the year to come. In doing so, I would like to share three fundamental concepts with you that affect every relationship and major decisions that we make in our lives. In other words, I haven't worked with any client (individuals, couples or organizations) across the globe that did not have these elements in the core of their issues. In no particular order, they are:

- Courage (to think, to do, to say, to be)
- Self-Respect (to believe in one's true value)
- Ability to Empathize (with self, partner or others)

I would like to invite you to think about where you are in terms of these three elements and how you practice them in your day to day interactions be it in personal, intimate or professional relationships. By becoming more mindful of where we are in terms of these three attributes and strengthening them day by day, a more fulfilling life is going to emerge. Mark my words for it!

 
With Warm Wishes,
Dr. Sara
