Inner Growth Thought of the Day: Knowing When It’s Not You, But Them
There are many situations that arise in one’s day-to-day that can bring about inner growth. One such situation involves frustration and irritation. As you pursue the situation from within (from your inner core, heart) you identify the role you play in fueling your own emotions in one direction or another, and the role others play in the same way.
“Knowing when it’s not you, but them” means taking the time in the moment or after the situation to choose whether or not you want to lead from within (inner core, heart) and in doing so gain knowledge of you, what there is to deal with and consequently get to tap in to your unlimited potential because you’ve consciously chosen how you’re going to remove frustration and irritation on your end, while allowing others to not affect you in that way when they bring those feelings/emotions to a situation.
Here are some ways to keep inner growth in mind to handle and move forward from any situation where feelings of frustration and irritation are brought about.
- Make a weekly log of the emotions you most experience throughout your day-to-day. Explore them one by one and find one thing you can do for each to bring them forth more (the emotions you want most) or less (the emotions you want to work through differently due to the lowering energy effects they can have on your day-to-day).
- With knowledge of your day-to-day emotions and your inner core’s ‘whys’ you can now recognize when it’s “others”. In these moments where someone is bringing forth an emotion that is destabilizing (frustration, anxiety, irritation, etc.) to a situation, think of one way you can bring forth calm to you from the heart; then see if there is anything you can do to bring forth the same calm to the situation.
- At the end of a year take a look at one of the most important situations you faced where you were able to bring forth a positive end-result thanks to your inner growth approach to the frustrating and/or irritating parts of the situation.
