Inner Growth Word of The Day 1 – Inner Growth

January 1

Inner Growth Word of the Day: Inner Growth

 

No dictionary definition: Even though not one word and with no set definition, when we look up “inner growth definition” different results come up that are centered around personal inner growth, self-completion, self-discipline, and “mental growth” of the mind (to name a few).

 

With that being said, one inner growth definition that I offer is the following:

  1. Inner growth is the pursuit of expanding one’s awareness of one’s self, bringing about self-discovery that can lead to self-completion and/or mental transformation to enjoy a fulfilling and happy life, one with a learning mindset that is always curious and looks at the world as a child who discovers something new every day.

 

Inner Growth in a sentence: Inner growth is something that happens over time, as one experiences life and actively seeks awareness of one’s self, as well as ways to reach a happy place within.

 

Inner Growth in action: Inner growth happens through the exploration of one’s self by means of questions, decisions, and steps that bring about desired transformation and/or expansion of one’s self.

 

Inner Growth action steps:

  1. In-depth self-exploration questions: Is there something I want to understand about myself? Is there a characteristic that I have that I wish to change?  If so, why?  What does inner growth mean to me?  Is it something I wish to pursue?

 

  1. List or word bubble: Make a list or word bubble with inner growth at the center and then place around it all the words that come to mind associated with it. With those words write a short story describing inner growth as if it were playing out in real life.

 

  1. Bring your awareness to your feelings when thinking about inner growth. Explore your feelings, particularly the ones that make you uncomfortable.  Feeling uneasy about something is a sign of something more and is where you want to start with your pursuit of inner growth.

 

Your turn – Share your inner growth definition, sentence, life examples, and action steps; and let me know if you’d like to see something added to our Inner Growth Word of The Day explorations 🙂
