Inner Growth Word of the Day: Winning


Merriam-Webster Dictionary definition: (n.) 1. the act of one that wins.


Winning in a sentence: Winning may be defined with a set of ideas and things you can win, but essentially every person has their spin on what it means to win to them.


Winning in action: When you are victorious in something that is considered winning.


Winning and inner growth:  What winning means to you and what you strive to win is something that leads to you knowing what things are important to you.  Exploring this allows you to understand why those things are so important to you, and this brings about inner growth since it gives you additional insights into the things you hold of value, as well as the effort you put in to obtaining that which holds meaning to you.


Winning and inner growth action steps:

  1. In-depth self-exploration questions: What does winning mean to me? How has winning affected my life?  What are some of my biggest takeaways from winning?  When did I first start thinking about winning?  In what way has winning played a role in my relationships?  When was the last time I thought about winning?


  1. List or word bubble: Make a list or word bubble with winning at the center and then list or put around it all the other words that come to mind associated with it. From the list pick three to five words that stand out the most and next to each place an incident in your life where winning was involved.  Expand on the event that is most significant to you and what it brought into your life.


  1. Bring your awareness to your feelings about winning and let those emotions take over without thinking much. As the feelings expand throughout your body, make a mental note of what emotion stands out the most.  When you’re ready with that emotion in mind let your thoughts flow in and notice what events come to mind.  From here, pick one of those events and let the feelings from that event take over.  If you’d like, do this with other events that stand out too when you’re ready.
