Inner Growth Thought of the Day: Uncovering Your Gifts Through Inner Growth
Everyone has a gift or two (or more) and it is up to each of us to find out what those gifts are, how we want to use them in life and for the good of others, as well as how to grow them.
As you pursue inner growth you get to know so much about yourself that you’re bound to start exploring those things that come natural to you (whether it’s helping others, mediating discussions, bringing joy or answers, etc.). With the knowledge you gain of the things you need to let go of (the ones that hold you back from your unlimited potential), you simultaneously gain clarity on those inner gifts that you’re meant to share with yourself and others (that are a part of your inner potential).
Here are some ways to recognize your gifts through inner growth.
- Make a list of the gifts you know you have and the ones you sense you have. For both lists write about moments when these gifts come forth (if you have questions write them out, if you have an added component to that gift include it in your description of what that gift entails, and so forth).
- Once a year pinpoint any event that brought clarity to your natural tendencies, which also allowed you to harness more of that gift in an effective way for your inner growth and the things you do in life (practically, through the day-to-day, interactions, job, etc.).
- Make it a habit to become conscious of when you’re using your gift or not using it in a moment of inner struggle, challenge, confusion. Try to gain the awareness you need so that you may use your inner gifts to help you through that moment.
