A CBT look at the wise words of Roald Dahl

[extract from my Smart Skills for Students school presentation]

What are you thinking? How are you explaining the world to yourself? WHO does that thinking make you? HOW does that thinking make you? Who do you want to be? How do you want to be?

Take a look at this simple and beautiful extract from  Roald Dahl’s book ‘The Twits’ to get you thinking about your thinking:

After all, we all watched Gru in Despicable Me grow lovely in our brains and before our very eyes as he renounced villainy and embraced love and fatherhood, didn’t we? And they didn’t redraw him at all – WE redrew him in our minds.
Think different. Be happy. It’s a true thing. It’s a philosophy for living.

Get going with CBT……
