Inner Growth Thought of The Day 59 – How Much Do You Want To Know

Inner Growth Thought of the Day: How Much Do You Want To Know

 

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

 

The depths with which you explore your inner self depend on you and the things that affect you in a way that grabs your attention.

 

Getting to know the level of insights you want into you, gives you the ability to make choices in how far you want to go to really know or acknowledge and accept the level of knowledge you are willing and interested in learning.

 

No matter how much you want to know, being aware of it is what gives you that added awareness towards your heart’s desires, which makes things in sync with you.  Here are some ways to keep this in the forefront in the moment.

 

  1. When you find yourself continuously wondering about certain situations, ask yourself how much digging you’ve done and what else you can do to find out more so that you can figure this situation out (whether through inner conflict solutions or actual solutions to resolve a practical problem).

 

  1. Make a list of the things you know you know in-depth about yourself and those that you have less in-depth knowledge on. Then decide if you want to keep exploring more of those things and how.

 

  1. Every time you think something is “easily” explainable (gain all the knowledge you want on it quickly or simply) ask someone who has had a major challenge with that something; and then notice the depths and lengths with which the person will talk about it.

Inner Growth Thought of The Day 58 – Getting Stuck & Unstuck

February 27

Inner Growth Thought of the Day: Getting Stuck & Unstuck

 

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

 

Sometimes we get stuck in where we’re headed because of second guessing our intuitions and when we look for guidance elsewhere to stay open to other ideas this second guessing of ourselves leads to greater confusion on what to do.

 

While it’s a positive to stay open to other inputs and the things that happen around us that lead us to make decisions, it is something you can do while not second guessing yourself.

 

By avoiding to second guess yourself with the knowledge of wanting to stay open you can make the choices that are in tune with your heart. Here are some ways to help you do this.

 

  1. When you are getting ready to make an important decision and find yourself second guessing your first intuitions on the matter, ask why you’re second guessing yourself. If your answer is uncertainty, remember that no one answer is going to necessarily avoid the uncertainty to the outcome of your decision.

 

  1. Make a list of all the times you followed your intuition that lead you where you wanted to be and keep this list handy for when you are second guessing yourself.

 

  1. If you find yourself rethinking different scenarios of how something can go, make a list of pros and cons with what your intuition is telling you and then evaluate based on what feels right in that moment.

You affect change through your everyday actions

You affect change through your everyday actions

“It is not by stomping your feet to the ground that you affect change, it is by leading it through your everyday actions, how you treat others; ultimately, what you share with the world.” ~ FNM

There are many who believe that loudness is what makes a difference when it comes to change; and although it grabs the attention needed to get people to open up their ears to important topics, become aware of issues at hand; the only way things become…is by being; this means, by individuals putting these beliefs into practice completely, all the way through.

If you promote love and peace, for example, this means you share it every day, every minute, with every person; not just a select few and not just once every now and then or when it’s because of the right circumstances and the people you decide are “deserving” of it.

It’s easy to say, I support love and peace; to hold rallies and organize groups; but it is by each individual of those groups sharing peace and love at all times that our societies and world will change.

Loudness gets us only so far, and when individuals do not also bring about the change they want to see through their everyday life actions, thoughts and words; this “loudness” ends up being a two sided argument (or more sided argument depending on the number differing views/perspectives on one topic), not a change for the betterment of humanity, a united humanity that shares love.

Humanity means all of us.  Some say this is utopistic, and it is exactly what it will be, until people continue to think it is.

It is our beliefs that lead us to the unlimited or limited potential we may unleash within each one of us, as an individual, and within humanity at large, as a group of people on this planet.

Loudness, being heard, is the seed to get awareness; but how the seed blossoms into a flower is the everyday care you take of it to help it grow.

 

 

Inner Growth Thought of The Day 57 – Looking Out For Yourself

Inner Growth Thought of the Day: Looking Out For Yourself

 

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

 

The bias towards doing things for one’s self can lead to situations of stress and concern for people who are trying to pursue inner growth and harmony.

 

As long as your inner growth journey affects you alone, so your time, perspectives, thoughts, what you try to share with the world to help, there is nothing wrong with your self-serving journey because you are not taking away or affecting anyone else but yourself and your day to day life.

 

Here are some ways to stay on track with looking out for yourself in a harmonious way with the world around you.

 

  1. When faced with deciding something, ask yourself if this affects solely you or also another/others. If it involves another/others, then that other(s) should be (as you would want to be) involved in the decision process.

 

  1. Make a list of the things you do to bring inner harmony to your day to day and note how they help you share more love and positivity with others.

 

  1. In those moments of doubt towards a decision made, look to your heart to find your center and remember the heart, the why, of that decision.

Inner Growth Thought of The Day 56 – Being Vulnerable

February 25

Inner Growth Thought of the Day: Being Vulnerable

 

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

 

Being vulnerable is something people talk about, go through, and explore at lengths with the external components first; while inner focus (to understand one’s own feelings and reactions to being vulnerable) is not as predominant.

 

When your attention is finally brought to look within yourself on being vulnerable: you are able to understand the depths of how you deal with vulnerability, what solutions help you in the moment and how to learn more about you through those moments of vulnerability, as well as what ways you can transform and/or change the situation (the vulnerability feeling you have within).

 

Here are some ways you can keep your focus on your inner self and being vulnerable so that you may pursue inner growth as you go through these moments.

 

  1. Make a list of two to five words that describe how you feel about being vulnerable. For each word think of ways you have learned from these moments, these feelings, and write out what you learned about yourself.

 

  1. If you find yourself focusing on other people’s vulnerabilities, turn your attention inward and ask yourself why you are concerned with this matter, as well as how is it affecting you personally.

 

  1. Identify if you judge being vulnerable, if you hold it against yourself in the moment; and when this is the case, pose this question to yourself: if it were a loved one who was feeling this way, what would you say to them (would it be to judge themselves, would it be to be kind to themselves, or something else), and then take your own advice.

Inner Growth Thought of The Day 55 – Awareness Of Layers & Filters

February 24

Inner Growth Thought of the Day: Awareness Of Layers & Filters

 

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

 

Having awareness of the layers and filters that affect your day-to-day interactions and life experiences isn’t something that is always in the forefront, but when it becomes part of what you see, the world around you gains a whole new depth.

 

With your inner-self components visible (judgements, culture, mindset, opinions, self-love, etc.) you have a clearer view of how you affect a situation, but also a clearer view on what the event or person involved in the situation is expressing.

 

Here are some ways to keep those layers and filters that are a part of you in the forefront as you pursue inner growth.

 

  1. Make a list of the layers of yourself you are aware of (culture, opinions, societal roles, stereotypes, etc.) and for each layer identify two to three ways the layer adds a filter to how you see things, react to things, interpret things (people, events, thoughts, conversations, etc.).

 

  1. Throughout your daily interactions make a note of the things that bother you and identify what layer and/or filters are involved in that particular interaction that bothered you.

 

  1. Any important event that takes place throughout the week, take five to 10 minutes to think about the “story” (the situation) from minimum two sides (two separate perspectives).

Inner Growth Thought of The Day 54 – The Vastness Of Your Thoughts

February 23

Inner Growth Thought of the Day: The Vastness Of Your Thoughts

 

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

 

The infinite number of ways a person can think about something are so vast that it’s hard to fathom sometimes; even within ourselves; yet here lies the beauty for those on an inner growth journey.

 

In realizing how the thoughts you explore and go in-depth on allow you to get a better picture of you and your heart’s path, you also acknowledge the infinite number of ways you can look to work with yourself and anything that comes your way.

 

Allow the vastness of your thoughts to guide you more and more toward that learning mindset that inspires your highest potential.  Here are some ideas to get you started or to add to what you’re already doing.

 

  1. Any time you finish a long thought on something that is bothering you or an important decision, something significant and profound, ask yourself one last question. You want the question to lead you to explore the opposite spectrum of what your thoughts on the topic were.

 

  1. Make a list of the most recurring thoughts you have and every time they come to mind add something new to that thought that you hadn’t thought of before (like a different perspective; you can even have others help by maybe asking them a question about your thought – without saying anything necessarily, just in conversation).

 

  1. Write out some of the things you used to think were impossible that became possible and explore how that came about. Keep those situations in mind when your next “impossible” thing comes about and evaluate if it may not be as impossible as you think it is.
