From Dr. Larry

Dr. Larry Gelman is fiercely devoted to each client, with a deep and profound respect for their own self-agency and self-determination.

“2nd Hardest Thing”

“The 2nd hardest thing that any one of us will ever have to do in our lives is to get up out of bed each morning!”

When you get up out of bed, you have made an affirmative choice to pursue a pathway to engage in self-agency as your own prime agent.

The first pathway is to be passive and dependent with you watching and waiting to see what will happen.

The second pathway is to be active and independent with you doing something to make something happen.

The third pathway is to be a frozen sculpture in space and time and to hope for a miraculous centennial thaw.

“The 1st hardest thing that any one of us will ever have to do in our lives is to awaken each morning!”

When you awaken, you have made an affirmative choice to contemplate self-agency as your own prime agent, at least preliminarily.

The first pathway is to be passive and dependent with you watching and waiting to see what will happen.

The second pathway is to be active and independent with you doing something to make something happen.

The third pathway is to be a frozen sculpture in space and time and to hope for a miraculous centennial thaw.

If you awaken, then you are not asleep; if you are not asleep, then you are alive; if you are alive, then you are not dead!

If you get up out of bed, then you are choosing a life of action instead of a life of inaction.

If you do not get up out of bed, then you are choosing a life of decay and ultimately death.

What makes the “2nd hardest thing” so interesting is that you have to do the “1st hardest thing” first.

Like with the step-wise methodology utilized for walking, 1st one step, then 2nd step or “ready” then, ”set.”

Now all that remains for a successful launch is the critical 3rd step which presumes that all systems are “go!”

1st step = “ready”; 2nd step = “set”; 3rd step =”go.”

With each step connected to the step before and to the step after...

One step at a time and one step, thereafter, until bedtime.
