Tune in to the Inspiring Human Potential podcast on Anchor to hear more on the topic 😊

 

That feeling that you’re all alone in those challenges you face as you look to reach that happy medium with your heart and life is something that many others feel.  I’m sure you recall various conversations you’ve had with others on the topic and how they understood exactly what you meant with that feeling alone.

 

And even though you’re not alone, it doesn’t mean that those moments get any easier; but what you can learn from those moments and actually use to pursue your inner growth is turn to your heart, to your belief in you and what you stand for, and to look at what insecurities are left for you to work through so that you can move forward with your goals, plans, desires, with full conviction of them because you have full faith in you and your heart’s purpose.

 

Some helpful tips to assist you in those moments where you feel alone, even though you’re not alone.

 

  1. When you feel alone go through the different feelings you are experiencing. Describe each one with different words, adjectives, and ask the question: what is the source of this feeling, what is the deep real-life situation that is connecting to this feeling I’m feeling?

 

  1. Explore the answers you give to your questions and organize them in categories that reflect what you see these answers indicating: is it an insecurity or desire for validation, or maybe it’s uncertainty of life; identify the essence of that answer to the feeling you’re experiencing in that moment.

 

  1. Make a list (even just a mental list) of all the people who support you and all the people you’ve encountered along your journey who have shared similar moments as the one you’re experiencing.

Inner Growth Thought of The Day 29 – A Recurring Challenge

January 29

Inner Growth Thought of the Day: A Recurring Challenge

 

Tune in to the Inspiring Human Potential podcast on Anchor to hear more on the topic 😊

 

When it comes to one recurring challenge people face in pursuing their highest potential and pursuing inner growth it’s the need of validation for the things they believe in.  This is one of the most common reasons why people stay stuck in repeat cycles of unsettled emotions, absence of harmony, and possibility to go all the way with their heart’s desires, life goals.

 

Coexisting with others doesn’t mean their beliefs, truths, validation and acceptance of your beliefs are required; this is your choice to make.  You can believe in your beliefs with or without validation, but until you require the validation and acceptance of others to believe in what you believe, you will continue to sway back and forth on decisions, emotions, and inner harmony with you.

 

Here are some ways to gain stability in either accepting you want validation by others if you’re going to believe something or removing the need for validation so that your beliefs depend solely on you.

 

  1. In moments of indecision on a belief write down (or think about) why you’re not sure about it. Take each doubt and ask yourself if this doubt is yours, of others, or both.

 

  1. With awareness of your doubts, you have a choice to make on what your belief is based on how it resonates with you from the heart.

 

  1. As long as you feel in harmony with your final choice on your belief, you will remember that feeling and bring it to your awareness when facing similar doubts/situations again.

January 28

Inner Growth Thought of the Day: Expanded Awareness

 

Tune in to the Inspiring Human Potential podcast on Anchor to hear more on the topic 😊

 

As you learn more about yourself, your depth and how much there is to learn about you as you pursue inner growth, there’s also the realization that the world outside of you is just as multi-layered and diverse, and that each perspective counts in the depth and knowledge you can have of everything that is a part of life.

 

This expanded awareness is important not only to your inner growth, but to the growth and love you bring about to the world and life you live in and look to make happy each day more.  As you grow aware of your depth, you want to accompany an active awareness and effort to keep the depth of others and the world in the forefront as well.

 

Here are some things you can do to keep expanded awareness in the forefront.

 

  1. Take at least one of your daily opinions/thoughts and think of at least three more perspectives that have a different take, angle and expression of that opinion/thought.

 

  1. Take one important belief you have and research how that belief is different depending on culture, psychology, upbringing, society, even ask people you know to express how they feel and think about this belief.

 

  1. Weekly find one or more ways to actively test in a conversation if you are able to stay open to the other person’s perspective (this means listening to what they’re saying without putting your perspective in the forefront of the conversation or thinking of answers or of what you would do or say).

Inner Growth Thought of The Day 27 – Reaching Balance

January 27

Inner Growth Thought of the Day: Reaching Balance

 

Tune in to the Inspiring Human Potential podcast on Anchor to hear more on the topic 😊

 

Reaching balance is always an interesting part of the journey we experience as we pursue inner growth.  As you become aware of all that is a part of you from within and without (the external), you look to find ways to get all the pieces to fit with your heart and the essence that is you and that you uncover as you look within and find out more about all that you are.

 

Balance is how you get to be aware of all that is going on as it is going on and a way you experience every emotion in a more profound and harmonious way.  While living different extremes seems at a first glance more impactful, after having been through both extremes and arriving at a balance consciously you get to feel the extremes in a way that benefits your inner growth and the balance you have achieved enables you to find out even more about you and each extreme.

 

Here are some ways to pursue reaching balance in moments of extremes.

 

  1. When you experience an emotional pull that overwhelms you, take a moment to breath, become fully aware of that emotion and release it to the world around you. Do this for a couple minutes or as long as you need until you feel that sensation of overwhelmed emotion is now dialed down for a moment to reflect on all that’s going on.

 

  1. Whatever the situation you’re facing, now that you are in a moment of calm, list what is causing the emotional rise and what you can do to help yourself in the moment so that you can transform that emotion in something that helps you in the moment.

 

  1. Daily look at your extreme emotional moments or tendencies and visualize different ways you find you can help yourself keep balance moving forward, then put those into practice until you arrive at that balance in the moment.

January 26

Inner Growth Thought of the Day: The Elixir Of Life

 

Tune in to the Inspiring Human Potential podcast on Anchor to hear more on the topic 😊

 

What the elixir of life means to you, and what it entails, depends on that which is a part of the essence of life for you and your appreciation for life experiences, as well as what you are grateful for in those moments and in the possibility of living another day.

 

When you’re on an inner growth journey, you are inclined to have a learning mindset, which means you are always in an inner child mode of learning and appreciation; everything is a novelty and can inspire your highest potential.  When this is the case there comes that moment where day after day, the depth of that day, its essence, and all that it adds to you, your life, and your own heart’s expression is something that you are aware of and that becomes that daily elixir of life that fuels you even more.

 

Here are some ways that can help uncover your elixir of life and integrate a daily dose of it as you pursue your inner growth.

 

  1. Every day, as soon as you wake up, take five minutes think about one amazing feeling you experienced the day before. Give yourself the time to fully feel it and appreciate it, then imagine you hadn’t had the possibility to feel that feeling, how would this change your life.

 

  1. Once a week make a list of the different feelings you got to experience (both “good” and “bad”) and next to each feeling place one word that represents the most important component of that feeling (maybe it was a person, or the situation, thought, result, whatever word comes to mind).

 

  1. Think of one new thing you discover about yourself each day and next to that thing you learned think of who, what, why or how that discovery came to be.

Inner Growth Thought of The Day 25 – Facing Your Demons

January 25

Inner Growth Thought of the Day: Facing Your Demons

 

Tune in to the Inspiring Human Potential podcast on Anchor to hear more on the topic 😊

 

There are many things that play a part of working with yourself while getting through a moment when you’re dealing with facing your demons.  If you see the demon as something you don’t want, an enemy, or something “bad”; this brings in a lot more weight to the situation; which doesn’t help you gain insights from that life experience (nor are you looking for how to overcome the demon by finding your solution or resolving a hidden insecurity).

 

If on the other hand, you’re able to see your demons as things that make you uncomfortable or contrast with you as a person, but that you can gain insights from (insights on your inner-self); then with this thought process you’ll be able to lift the weight in that moment; which then gives you the opportunity  to repeat facing your demon(s) until you’ve resolved it by overcoming the hidden situation that was causing the demon in the first place.

 

Some inner growth mindset tips that can help you in those moments when you’re facing your demons.

 

  1. Write about when and why this demon first appeared and what you can already see as the main uncomfortable points about it. Then write about how you envision being able to work with yourself to find a complete resolution to those points of discomfort.

 

  1. List the demons you’ve overcome from your past so that you may look to them when you’re facing new demons to see what you can apply from past moments to the new ones.

 

  1. Every time you overcome a demon write what you learned about yourself and what insecurity, fear, doubt or other inner-self quarry you resolved.
