Inner Growth Exercise of the Day: Dealing With Setbacks On Things That Matter Most To You
Exploring dealing with setbacks on things that matter most to you; how to find emotional balance in these moments so you can keep moving forward; how inner growth gets you to use your power for transformation to learn from the moment instead of having it hold you back; what discoveries you make thanks to contemplating a setback with an inner growth mindset; the value a setback has on your overall leadership from within and with the things you do; and how it’s only a setback if you stop moving forward and stop believing in yourself, your life purpose, and your heart-felt reasons.
Your Inner Growth Exercise of The Day depending on where you are in your journey:
- Inner Growth Exercise for Beginners: When you’re facing a setback make a list of all the things that are grabbing your attention from the situation and are causing the greatest emotional response. For each item you list, explore the feeling (the emotion) that is taking place. In your exploration identify the fears and bring forth at least one to three solutions you can take to face the fears in a way that feels comfortable, while also allowing you to pursue self-confidence and trust that you can do this.
- Inner Growth Exercise for Intermediate: Identify where you are trying to control and/or where you’re judging yourself harshly for the setback at hand. Find two to three ways to let go of control by replacing it with a focus on trust, acceptance of what is, plus bringing in the knowledge of patience; and also look to where you’re judging yourself “not good enough” and replace those thoughts with two or three “good enough” thoughts/words for what you’ve already accomplished and the efforts you’re bringing forth through your day-to-day. With a regained focus on love, trust and patience; set out to do at least one thing that can bring about the pursuit of what you’re trying to achieve to the next step (no matter how “small” that step forward is, it’s still a step forward).
- Inner Growth Exercise for Advanced: With consciousness of your fears, areas of control, and/or unconditional love that you actively pursue regaining awareness of to bring forth your self-trust and life-trust thoughts; also identify two to three things this setback is getting you to learn (it can be learning to let go, learning a new theory or skillset that you’ll be able to use, it can be expanding your knowledge of the people that you’re trying to help through your spiritual-based practice or professional consulting career, etc.).
