Inner Growth Thought of the Day: Going Beyond ‘Self-Serving’ Definitions
Going beyond a definition and situation that involves self-serving traits benefits you and others because it brings you to explore your own self-serving traits; this also enables you to understand others in similar situations.
Exploring your definitions and the feelings you have when self-serving situations take place gets you to find out more about you, while consciously deciding how you want to transform the situations so that they include an aspect of love and sharing.
Here are some ways to continue inner growth when dealing with self-serving situations.
- Define what self-serving means to you and every week pay attention to what situations come about that include your definition and how you were able to make the best of it for your inner growth.
- List one to five times you’ve been self-serving and next to each write what you learned from those situations.
- When you think of self-serving situations notice what feelings come up and then ask yourself why those feelings, what deeper meaning do they hold to you and what can you do to make the situation better.
