To lie to others is something you are aware of, but to lie to yourself isn’t as easy to recognize. When you find yourself in a situation that makes you unhappy or gives you mixed feelings, and you keep telling yourself it’s not true or you make excuses for the situation, but don’t take actions to change how you feel about it; this is your queue that you’re lying to yourself. This is where your inner growth exploration begins. Find out why you’re lying and you will learn a lot about yourself, as well as find your way to your truth.

Loss upsets us and when that happens there’s room to look deeper, which can bring about inner growth as you explore these areas within you.
Pushing yourself to do something that’s outside of your comfort zone can help you take steps forwards in different areas of your life. I’m not talking about something that can hurt somebody or yourself, but something outside of your comfort zone that you don’t want to do because maybe you think you can’t do it or simply because you’ve always never done it. The situations I’m talking about take place kind of naturally, life brings them about and gives you the opportunity to contemplate taking that step.
If you look at your reactions and explore them with questions of whys and how comes, you can arrive at an understanding of yourself, with that knowledge you can also decide if you’re ok with your present state in responding to events and situations or if you you’d rather transform them.
When it comes time to look within, knowing what type of mindset you have helps you to understand that within. At the same time, your mindset also determines the attitude and outlook you’ll have when contemplating your inner self and/or when facing the events that take place around you.
If you measure your self-worth and pose questions as to why it is high or low, good or bad, and so on; you work on inner growth because in your exploration you look to yourself and face your questions and/or challenges based on you.
Positivity helps you to be more at ease when the unexpected comes your way; making learning lessons visible and easier to take in. You can also look to inner growth through an internal exploration of your positivity that may be greater in certain circumstances versus others.
Challenges come in different shapes and sizes, but it’s how you face the tasks or problems at hand that gets you to your next steps.
Reflecting on unconsciousness makes you aware of the places within you that you have yet to uncover; and when awareness also leads to action, then you pursue inner growth for you and those uncovered areas.
Exploring what within you is not in unity can lead to resolving internal separateness and disconnect, which leads to inner growth by resolving what is keeping you at odds with yourself.
