Inner Growth Thought of the Day: Seeing Potential In Any Opportunity
When you step away and take some time to observe opportunity without specific expectations, but also with consciousness/awareness of them, you see the limits they pose; or better yet, you uncover the hidden potential that opportunity holds by removing the layer of limits set by expectations thanks to consciousness/awareness of them.
Inner growth brings you to see those expectations from within, to become conscious in the moment of how and why they’re limiting the opportunity. Thanks to gaining inner knowledge through contemplation from the heart, plus the knowledge you hold of life thanks to experience; you are able to open up to the potential that an opportunity can have any time opportunities arise.
Here are some ways to see the potential in any opportunity while pursuing inner growth.
- When you’re faced with a pending conclusion for something that seems like an opportunity, list three to five different ways it could play out. Next take five minutes to visualize these different scenarios and pay attention to your feelings. Notice if resistance or openness are present and/or if anything different from what you listed comes to mind.
- Every time you think an opportunity couldn’t have any other outcome, write one of the expectations you’re posing and how you it’s affecting the potential of that opportunity.
- Once a year take a look at all the opportunities you experienced and make a list of what you were open about and what you were closed off to. Notice how expectations affected that openness or closed off feeling/mindset. Write one way you are going to try and stay open in the year to come with the opportunities that come your way.
