Inner Growth Thought of the Day: Dealing With Different People
Dealing with different people has its challenges, but when approached with an inner growth mindset you are able to learn from these situations and extend the same knowledge to others.
In staying open to differences, you gain personal growth and growth towards others thanks to the understanding you gain of your relationship to differences, gaining an understanding of the different mindset, and searching for an optimal balance to continue the dialogue effectively.
Here are some ways to keep inner growth in the forefront when dealing with different people.
- Make a list of situations where you dealt with different people in the past year and next to each write out what you learned about yourself from each situation.
- List some of what you define as different in others and next to each difference place why you consider it different. Also identify how this opinion affects your openness to listening and learning from these differences.
- Decide three ways you are going to stay open to differences in the moment and every time you go through a situation, evaluate how this choice has helped you in your life and helped others in theirs.
Your turn – Share your inner growth thought of the day, a sentence, life examples, or action steps you take with new beginnings 😊
