Self-Concern: “I am not enthused or satisfied as I am.”
Compensation: "I must avoid limitations and stay open to exciting possibilities that may become available in life."
Core Assumption: Enthusiasm comes from possibilities that lead to something interesting, exciting, or satisfying. This requires that I anticipate whether a path might lead to something positive or negative. The positives are pursued while the negatives are avoided, reframed, or escaped from.
Focus of Attention is on where a train of thought is leading and what's next.
