Whenever people think of what it takes to make them happy, they conjure up images of things like their family, being in the woods, or eating a delicious meal. But no matter what they imagine, their fantasies almost always have one thing in common: it’s always in the real world.
People spend most of their time on the Internet, yet whenever they imagine “happiness” it’s never in the virtual world! This is a great problem! While I’m not the most tech-savvy person in the world, I’m also no Luddite.
A life coach, like any other person, has to get with the times. I’m not here to tell you that your cell-phone is killing your humanity and wasting your time. Technology itself doesn’t do that; only the abuse of technology does that. It’s all about balance. So I think imagining your own happiness can include reconnecting with an old friend on Facebook, or just Googling around on a topic that interests you for an hour.
If, however, you find yourself abusing technology, like you would alcohol or drugs, you can come to me for hypnosis that treats all forms of technology addiction. But as your life coach, let me tell you that it’s okay to embrace technology—as long as it’s in moderation.
