October 4

Inner Growth Word of the Day: Destiny


Merriam-Webster Dictionary definition: (n.) 1. something to which a person or thing is destined.  2. a predetermined course of events often held to be an irresistible power or agency.


Destiny in a sentence: When you have a good grasp of your destiny, you can see everything else that falls in line with it.


Destiny in action: Uncovering what you are here to do, what you are meant to do; that is finding your destiny.


Destiny and inner growth: A look at what you feel your destiny is and uncovering it along your journey in life brings about inner growth because it is in the pursuit of uncovering your destiny that you also uncover yourself and make decisions that bring you one step closer to where you feel you are meant to be.


Destiny and inner growth action steps:

  1. In-depth self-exploration questions: What is my destiny? When did I first think about destiny?  How do I define destiny?  Do I believe destiny is predetermined or that I decide what it is?  How do I know for sure what my destiny is?  What have I learned about myself as I pursued finding and/or fulfilling my destiny?  How has my destiny affected my relationships?  How has destiny affected my life?


  1. List or word bubble: Make a list or word bubble with destiny at the center and then list or put around it all the words that come to mind associated with it. From this list now think of one thing that helped you realize exactly what your destiny is or could be.  Write about this situation and how it played out using the words from your list.


  1. Bring your awareness to your feelings about destiny and allow them to flow throughout while noticing what types of emotions arise. As you do this also focus on those areas of your body where you feel more energy and visualize the energy dispersing evenly, like a river running downstream.  When you’re ready, think about your destiny and see what feelings arise and where, if there’s a major change or not.
