Inner Growth Word of the Day: Lesson
Merriam-Webster Dictionary definition: (n.) 3 a. something learned by study or experience.
Lesson in a sentence: Every day holds at least one lesson that you acquire and can share with others.
Lesson in action: Gaining tips, notions, insights and more from a life experience is a lesson.
Lesson and inner growth: When it comes to lessons and inner growth there is much to be said, but in essence it is thanks to the lessons acquired and your mindset to find a lesson in everything you experience that brings about inner growth for you, your person and emotions, your actions, and your overall life.
Lesson and inner growth action steps:
- In-depth self-exploration questions: What life information do I consider to be a lesson? What types of lessons are most obvious to me from my day to day experiences? Are there hidden lessons in my life that I have yet to explore or find? If so, how do I know this if they’re hidden? What are some of the most important lessons I’ve gained from my relationships? What lessons have I learned from my actions and reactions to life and situations I’ve been through in life?
- List or word bubble: Make a list or word bubble with lesson at the center and then list or put around it all the other words that come to mind associated with it. From this list pick three words and next to each put a valuable lesson you learned through a life experience. Next pick one of these lessons and write about it using the rest of the words from your initial list.
- Bring your awareness to your feelings about lessons and let them flow within. As you do this visualize an evenly flowing river, calm and sunny, and notice if your emotions follow along your visualization. Do they go where you see the river flowing or do they do something different? When you’re ready, bring in thoughts and notice what first lesson comes to mind. Focus on that lesson and see what emotions it brings about.
