Inner Growth Thought of the Day: Dealing With Contradiction From The Heart
Contradictions are something we can learn from when we look to our inner core. This is because our heart isn’t what we always in the forefront of our consciousness when we’re doing things.
As you pursue inner growth, you look within (to your inner core) in those moments of contradiction and are able to consciously choose a different route that is in tune with your heart and that will therefore last in the long-run instead of dialing down or making a switch down the line.
Here are some ways to deal with contradictions from the heart thanks to an inner growth mindset when faced with such situations.
- Any time you realize there’s a contradiction between something you say, do, or feel, take five minutes to think about it. Ask questions directed at the disconnect in the situation and choose a course of action that speaks true to your heart.
- Define what a contradiction is to you, then list two to five things you can do to counteract characteristics that are a part of the definition that you see present in your activities and ways. Notice what stands out as you counteract the contradictions you spot in time and use those things that work to deal with future contradictions that present themselves moving forward.
- Every year take a look back at the contradictions in your life that took place and how you dealt with them. List two to three things you learned about yourself thanks to those situations, and two to three things that helped you lead with heart on resolving the contradictions.
