If Its Not True But It Gets The Desired Results, Is It Then True?

by | Nov 2, 2020 | Updates

Are you asking the right question?

“At LifeShift we don’t care about what’s true we care about what works. What is going to get the result that our clients want.”

With at least 600 models of counselling and psychotherapy in the world today how is someone expected to know what to choose? If you’re like many others you will make a choice based on what is true.

However, who defines what is true anyway? Scientists? Can they agree? Do they know? What was “true” a few years ago isn’t viewed as such now – just ask Galileo who faced charges for daring to suggest the Earth revolved around the Sun!

We all use words like; mind, unconscious and conscious however no one has actually managed to prove these things exist. Yes, they are accepted by many to be however this doesn’t make it so.

Does that mean they are true? Untrue? Exist or not? I’d say, does it matter? Truth is a matter of perspective. This is the realm of debate for academics and philosophers (or at the breaks during training courses!)

I used to get bogged down in “what’s true”, caught up in the detail. After thousands of hours of courses, reading, watching, talking, I realised it doesn’t matter.

It matters what works. What gets the results the clients came for, the changes they want.

For those like I used to be, who like definitions, debate and certainty, I’m happy to explore these things however here is a shortcut.

I encourage you to save yourself a lot of time and effort before choosing a training now and ask yourself the most important questions, “Does it work? Does it get results?”

If the answer to this is “yes” then do it. If not – do something else until you find what does work for you.
