Inner Growth Word of the Day: Opportunities
Merriam-Webster Dictionary definition: (n.) 1. a favorable juncture of circumstances. 2. a good chance for advancement or progress.
Opportunities in a sentence: When opportunities come our way, everything looks brighter and the options we can choose from become endless.
Opportunities in action: Favorable situations and circumstances are opportunities that can lead us where we want to go.
Opportunities and inner growth: Opportunities allow inner growth by giving us different options to choose from, which make us reflect upon what we really want. This reflection gets us to turn inward and ponder what our heart truly wants, and our opportunities allow us to take action to make those desires come true.
Opportunities and inner growth action steps:
- In-depth self-exploration questions: How do I feel about opportunities? What actions have I taken when opportunities have presented themselves? What have I learned from the opportunities that have come my way? How have opportunities changed my life? What types of opportunities have I turned down and why?
- List or word bubble: Make a list or word bubble with opportunities at the center and then list or put around it all the other words that come to mind associated with it. Make a second list with a couple or more opportunities you’ve taken up and from this list pick at least one of those opportunities to write about it using the words you put in your first list.
- Bring your awareness to your feelings about opportunities and allow them to flow, starting with the first feeling that came about when you thought about opportunities. After a couple minutes or longer move on to another feeling that came from thinking about opportunities. When you’re ready you can move on to allowing your thoughts to come in too; focus on one thought at a time and the feeling it brings about.
