Inner Growth Word of the Day: Steps


Merriam-Webster Dictionary definition: (n.) 7. an action, proceeding, or measure often occurring as one in a series.


Steps in a sentence: What steps you take to pursue the life you want is up to you.


Steps in action: The actions you take to get something done are steps.


Steps and inner growth: Exploring how and what steps you take to accomplish things you are passionate about, things you want to pursue in your life, get you to dig deep in uncovering what feelings and efforts are associated to those things.  This deep dive brings about inner growth as you become fully aware of your core’s reason for pursuing the different things you are looking to achieve.


Steps and inner growth action steps:

  1. In-depth self-exploration questions: How do I decide what steps I will take to get something done? How does it affect my life to take the steps I believe are right to me versus the steps someone else advises me to take?  Why are steps important to ponder and what do I learn from those moments of thought?  When did I first stop to think about the steps I wanted to take?  How have my steps affected my life?


  1. List or word bubble: Make a list or word bubble with steps at the center and then list or put around it all the words that come to mind associated with it. From this list think of one goal you’ve achieved thanks to the steps you took and write about that event using the words from your list.


  1. Bring your awareness to your feelings about the steps you take to accomplish those things you’re passionate about and notice where they start off, where they go, and how they flow. As you do this, focus on the sensations that are going by and pay attention to any changes.  When you’re ready, think of one or two specific instances where the steps you took helped to reach your objective almost immediately.  Notice if there are any changes in the emotions you feel as you do this.
