ABC’s

I found this among my notes from grad school.  Good advice!

ABC’s:

  1. All behavior is purposeful
  2. Thoughts cause feelings

The “A-B-C” approach to helping yourself:

A= the situation or person or event

B= the beliefs or self-talk about A

C= feelings and behavior-the consequence of the self-talk

B causes C, but most people believe that A causes

  1. Get your expectations in line with reality
  2. You teach people how to treat you
  3. Don’t guarantee anyone’s behavior other than your own
  4. Life is a series of choices
  5. Don’t guarantee anyone’s behavior other than your own
  6. Life is a series of choices
