Faulty beliefs that stop us from growing and achieving

By on

Even I haven't mentioned it previously I'm an ardent believer in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. Robert Ellis, PhD., the father of Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy, REBT for short, came up with 11 irrational thoughts which we turn into beliefs that may stop us in our tracks stymieing our growth. The list is paraphrased below with some additions all of which are, as he stated, are IRRATIONAL.
1.) It is necessary to be like and approved by everyone.
2.) I should be good or perfect at everything I do.
3.) When people are bad they should be punished.
