Inner Growth Thought of The Day 45 – All You Need Is Love, Self-Love

Inner Growth Thought of the Day: All You Need Is Love, Self-Love

 

Tune in to the Inspiring Human Potential podcast on Anchor to hear more on the topic 😊

 

The importance of self-love to leading a life that is in harmony with you, your heart and inner growth is fundamental.  The thing is, behind our self-love, there are a number of layers of why some of us have more of it and others less.

 

However, no matter the level of self-love, once you seek to gain knowledge of it and aim to give yourself the same love you share with others, that is when self-love becomes a constant (because you seek to maintain it now that you are aware of it).  As your self-love stabilizes and grows it then integrates into your journey helping you to overcome obstacles and challenges, and completely transforming your mindset to embrace the learning behind your life experiences.

 

Here are some ways to keep self-love in the forefront and make it a part of your inner growth journey.

 

  1. Take 5 minutes in the morning to look at anything that came to mind about yourself in the past days or weeks that you had mixed feelings about. Give yourself a pep-talk and get to the bottom of why the mixed feelings. Close your 5 minutes by genuinely sending yourself self-love because no matter what, you are still a most beautiful person (no one is “perfect”).

 

  1. When you think of the love you have for yourself what feelings arise. Make a list of them and explore them all. Try to understand how your past and present environment play a role in these feelings, and how your self-love plays a role in them.

 

  1. Every time you think you’ve made a mistake, take 10 minutes to ensure you’re not beating yourself up about it, to give yourself some love, and to look to solutions for this thing you consider a mistake.

Inner Growth Thought of The Day 44 – What’s Empowering

February 13

Inner Growth Thought of the Day: What’s Empowering

 

Tune in to the Inspiring Human Potential podcast on Anchor to hear more on the topic 😊

 

When you think of what’s empowering in your life many things come to mind, but there’s one thing that empowers you more than any other; and it’s the same thing that gives you stability or takes it away from you. What’s empowering is YOU.

 

Yes, you are the answer to feeling and being empowered beyond compare to anything else.  It’s because you are the answer to any of your problems (since you are the one looking for the solutions), you decide whether or not to tune in to you heart, and you make the choice of what you want to focus on and what weight, importance, and attention you want to give to something.

 

Here are some ways to tap into you, so that you may bring about those empowering moments at any time.

 

  1. Make a mental list of when you feel empowered; next notice the common feeling in all those moments, as well as your state of being regarding yourself (for example feeling very sure of yourself or the situation).

 

  1. Define what empowering means to you with the attributes of feelings and when you are in a moment of need bring your attention to those feelings.

 

  1. In those moments when you need to feel empowered what is the common thought on your role in whatever is going on. Whatever it is you’re putting on you (“blaming on yourself”), have a pep talk and let it go. Remember to be kind to yourself and help yourself learn what it is that you needed to learn in that moment so that the experience may add to your empowering yourself in future moments like these.

Inner Growth Thought of The Day 43 – Learning From Transitions

February 12

Inner Growth Thought of the Day: Learning From Transitions

 

Tune in to the Inspiring Human Potential podcast on Anchor to hear more on the topic 😊

 

It’s very easy to overlook what you learn as you change or transform, as you go through transitions that bring you further along in your inner growth journey and reaching harmony within your life and day to day.

 

The way you can look back and see what you have learned depends on what depth you choose to use when looking back, what corners you explore and hiding spots you uncover.  There’s just so much to you and all that you have lived and will live, that learning from transitions when looking back is a never-ending journey that you can always gain insights from.

 

Here are some ways you can learn from your transitions, transformations, changes, and past moments that come to mind.

 

  1. Every morning, take five minutes to think of one of your dominant traits and explore what changes you see in this trait since you first became aware of it.

 

  1. Make a list of the major transitions, transformations, changes, and past events in your life. At your own leisure, add an item that describes what each moment you listed represents to you and one thing you learned from it (keep your list so that you can add to items as the years go by).

 

  1. Once a year think about the biggest transformation you recognize to have gone through and next to this major event list the transitions, changes, transformation, and past year moments that contributed to this big transformation.

Inner Growth Thought of The Day 42 – The Path Of Knowledge

February 11

Inner Growth Thought of the Day: The Path Of Knowledge

 

Tune in to the Inspiring Human Potential podcast on Anchor to hear more on the topic 😊

 

What we know changes every day that we experience life and encounter moments where we live life and make choices, pursue dreams, appreciate loved ones, and so on and so forth.  When you realize that you can’t know what you haven’t experienced yet, you move one step closer to seeing the learning lessons from each day.

 

As you pursue inner growth and look to express more and more of what you want to share with the world, you gain full awareness of knowing what you don’t know, but that you can learn about and incorporate into your life every day that you are open to observing, understanding, exploring, and just seeing what you don’t know as something you can learn about, not something you need to fear or expect to already know.

 

Here are some ways to pursue the path of knowledge for your inner growth and openness to life’s lessons.

 

  1. Anything you believe is a regret, put it on a list and go back in time to where you were with what you knew. Now, find one of these moments that you knew 200% the consequences of your choices and actions. Those things that you did know about, follow up with why then you chose to do it and what you learned from that choice.

 

  1. Write down three things you learn every day (one about yourself, about life, and about your purpose).

 

  1. Make a list of the things you want to gain full knowledge of and pursue those items one by one in time, until you get through your entire list (you can always add more as time goes by).

Inner Growth Thought of The Day 41 – The Blame Game

February 10

Inner Growth Thought of the Day: The Blame Game

 

Tune in to the Inspiring Human Potential podcast on Anchor to hear more on the topic 😊

 

Whether out loud or in your head, we’ve all participated in the blame game.  For those who have been on an inner growth journey for some time, they’ve moved way passed the initial phases of this scenario, while others may be still fully immersed.

 

The problem with the blame game is that it keeps you focused on the external (others or situations), doesn’t get you to think about your role and you (your inner self) in a situation, and energy is spent on something outside of you and not in a learning mindset kind of energy, in an energy that repeats itself.

 

Here are some tips to help you break the blame game cycle and to look at things (interactions, people, situations) with that learning mindset as you pursue inner growth.

 

  1. Every time you blame someone or something, turn inward and find what and how you contributed to that circumstance and/or situation.

 

  1. Keep in mind experiences where you were blamed by someone for something wrong in their life or for something going badly. How did you feel about this? What did you think? Did you feel responsible even though you weren’t? Explore those situations to remember that there’s always two sides to something.

 

  1. When you catch yourself thinking about who’s to blame for something going wrong in your life, bring your thoughts and energy to explore what solutions you have for that something you want to fix in your life.

Inner Growth Thought of the Day 40 – Setting Your Own Milestones

February 9

Tune in to the Inspiring Human Potential podcast on Anchor to hear more on the topic 😊

 

When it comes to setting your own milestones, it’s not something everyone has in their awareness at first.  Coming from a place where each of us is taught what a milestone is, until the time of the desire to know one’s self and to understand their heart from the depths of that heart, there will be many milestones that were set for you and not really by you.

 

If you are on an inner growth journey though, this means you are in that awareness space and for milestones it’s a matter of taking a look at your heart and its relationship to the milestones you’re actively achieving and/or pursuing to know if they are truly a part of who you are, where you want to go, and what you’d like to share with you and the world.

 

Here are some ways you can work to set your own milestones or check if you’re setting them already.

 

  1. Make a list of the milestones you want to achieve short-term and long-term. For each item write three reasons why the milestone is important to you.

 

  1. With your list, pick a milestone and read your reasons for it being important. Pay close attention to the feelings that come across and the thoughts too. Whatever stands out, ask yourself why you feel this way and/or why you’re thinking this thought. Contemplate until you are satisfied with your answers and have identified if your milestone is yours from the heart or prescribed to you by others (parents, society, status, job, etc.).

 

  1. When you look back, what milestones do you see you achieved? List them all out and notice how they make you feel, but also how they played a role in where you are today. Use the ones you find are not milestones from the heart to identify future milestones that are also not a true part of you.

Inner Growth Thought of The Day 39 – Strength Without The Weight

February 8

Inner Growth Thought of the Day: Strength Without The Weight

 

Tune in to the Inspiring Human Potential podcast on Anchor to hear more on the topic 😊

 

There are different sayings we turn to in moments of challenges or just throughout the day-to-day, and one of these sayings, one that came to mind, is something around the lines of what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.

 

This also made me think of the weight that sometimes comes with the strength we gain in those challenging moments; and how in those moments you have the opportunity to lighten the weight.  Once you become aware of the weight in the moment you can look to ways that work for you to have more of an uplifting strength, one that brings lightness with it as it fuels your energy to move forward.

 

Here are some ways you can work with removing the weight that is sometimes present in the strength you turn to when you need it.

 

  1. To gain awareness in a moment of high intensity you want to apply your focus towards awareness of your body. Pay attention to your shoulders, muscles, neck, and heart/chest area.

 

  1. When you focus and find weight is present in certain areas test different techniques that can help release that weight. Breathing and visualizing a safe place and/or comforting feeling come to mind.

 

  1. Make a mental list of moments where you are fueled by strength and practice those moments in your preferred state of being (how you want to feel in those moments).
