When the greatest Olympian of all time, swimmer Michael Phelps was asked how many hours a day he trained, he said 5 hours a day and then added, “If you don’t put the work in you really can’t expect to get much out of it.” This is true for Olympic athletes and people in counseling too. When you find a therapist you feel comfortable with, what you put in to counseling is often times proportional to what you will get out of it. Are you willing to take a risk and be open and honest? Are you able to dedicate yourself to exploring some things that may feel uncomfortable but may ultimately lead to better understanding? Are you willing to give yourself the time necessary to gain insights and new ways of interacting with the world around you? If so, be like Michael Phelps and be ready to work for it and Go for the Gold in your life and relationships!
