While they are not the associated arterial blockages normally associated with heart attack, the heart becomes misshapen causing interference with its optimal functioning.

Power can be a Wonderful Thing

Since Choice Theory is often about reducing your use of external control, we tend to shy away from admitting we may have a high power need. The power need is frequently misunderstood; it does not have to mean you are a bully and a control freak. Of course, some people with a high need for power are bullies and control freaks, but that isn’t the only way to manifest this need. Toddlers naturally excel at powering over other people.

As this year draws to a close, some of you are already looking ahead to what you want to do in the year ahead. It’s the time of year we begin self-reflection in order to adjust our course for the upcoming year. In my work coaching people, I find it interesting that many of my clients set very clear intentions for what they want to accomplish.
