“Do you need, for some unknown reason, to not get what you want?”
Make sense of the seemingly irrational and resistant behaviors you developed in childhood that helped you at one time, but that now persist as blockages that prevent you from reaching your full potential—behaviors like these:
“I want to get that promotion,” he says–but he is consistently late to important meetings.
“I want to get married and have children,” she says–but she consistently picks unavailable men.
“I want to express my ideas,” he says–but given the chance, he has nothing to say.
Sound familiar? Maybe too familiar? If you are trapped in a life that doesn’t live up to your full potential, find out why—could it be you have a “need not-to” fulfill your goals? That’s what Ditta Oliker, PhD believes, and in The Light Side of the Moon, she explains how to recognize and break free of the adaptive responses (survival systems) that continue to operate, silently and unseen, and have become the nonconscious, defeating behaviors of adulthood—the hidden opponents within that block you from reaching your inherent potential.
