Relationship Free values awareness.
We recognise and attribute this value as the primary catalyst for change and the key to growth. Dr Phil says “We can’t change what we don’t acknowledge” and this is at the forefront of all Relationship Free products and services. It is only once we see something exactly for what it is that we can make an informed decision as to whether or not we want to change it. Sometimes it’s our own denial that distorts things, sometimes it’s another person’s manipulation. Dr Phil also says “Awareness without action is worthless” – in order to make our awareness valuable we need to make a decision on what we are now aware of, and take action. This sentiment was also felt by Aristotle who says “The ultimate value of life depends upon awareness and the power of contemplation rather than upon mere survival.”
Self awareness feeds into this, as well as the awareness of others. Relationship Free encourages all clients to be self aware, because we realise something we want or need to change that we can truly be our best. Abraham Maslow says “What is necessary to change a person is to change his awareness of himself.” Meanwhile, people all around us are losing consciousness of others, becoming more judgemental, critical and isolated by social media and online forums. This unawareness is destroying people’s ability to experience and feel empathy. Nathaniel Branden says “The first step toward change is awareness. The second step is acceptance.” When Mr Branden talks about this acceptance, it’s not just our own acceptance of the change that needs to occur but it is the acceptance of others that allows for change and growth to take place for an individual. We recognise if someone is in an environment where they are chastised for change, growth and development then their awareness of their environment will first be more critical than the awareness of themselves. Sometimes until we are in the right environment, we can’t make change happen as efficiently as we usually can, if at all.
