Leonard Buschel, co-founder of Writers in Treatment (WIT), was a recent guest on Pure Motive Radio Network’s new show, Kickass Personal Transformation™ with Marti MacGibbon. Leonard told host Marti MacGibbon about how his non-profit organization, Writers in Treatment, connects individuals suffering from addiction and other self-destructive behaviors with treatment and recovery solutions. WIT also presents the REEL Recovery Film Festival, an inspiring and relevant event held in 8 cities that showcases both classics and contemporary films about addiction, alcoholism, behavioral disorders, treatment and recovery.
Writing is something we all do, every day of our lives. We compose emails, social media posts, write heartfelt letters to friends and family or crisp missives to business associates. Some people are gifted wordsmiths, delighting everyone with their talent, and yet they don’t think of themselves as possessing any special writing skills. Others know they’re writers, because they are published authors or popular bloggers. No matter how⎯or if, you see yourself as a contender in the literary world, you can’t escape the fact that you are a writer.
In your thinking, what kind of Kickass Moves do you have? Are you flexible enough? Or are you too rigid? Flexibility is a quality worth developing, maintaining and exploring. People who cultivate a flexible way of looking at themselves and at challenging situations, generally find solutions to problems and satisfaction — or even happiness — in life. An adaptable way of thinking helps us to address problems from many different angles, while a more rigid “set in your ways” type of thinking will hem you in, tap your creativity and limit your options.
