Beautify your inner dialogue. Beautify your inner world with love light and compassion. Life will be beautiful.
You almost always create more change when you do it from the inside out.
When we do the inner work, our outer world also improves.
RELEASING LIMITING BELIEFS. Limiting beliefs are the lies that we’ve told ourselves often enough that we believe them and are usually formed at a young age based on other people’s opinions, e.g. I’m not good enough, I’m stupid, I’m unloveable. When we can release these crappy believes we can create new positive beliefs that support us in achieving our goals.
REFLECTION. Reflective practice is a really useful tool when it comes to looking at things that went “wrong” and thinking about how we could have approached it in a different way, looking at the things we learned from that challenge.
GOAL SETTING. By knowing what you want you can also figure out what kind of person you need to be to achieve it, then do the work to become that person.
SELF LOVE. By focusing on increasing my self-worth and self-respect by loving myself in a healthy way, I set better boundaries for myself, and my life and my whole life improved as a result.
FORGIVENESS. By releasing the emotional baggage from the past and forgiving myself and others it’s had a profound effect on my happiness levels.
Ask yourself "Why?" Then find your answer. "I've seen people that most successfully avoid complacency and mediocrity when they have a purpose when they can answer the Why question." Maanavi explains, "I have a favorite quote from Shakespeare: 'The meaning of life is to find your gift.' When you have a purpose you do your best work, you find your deepest strength. That's when the desire for SOMETHING can transcend the desire for safety. Needing to make a difference overcomes the fear of failing." Greater focus on purpose cultivates the strength and motivation to tackle setbacks.
Put yourself first. Maanavi firmly believes that actual work/life balance doesn't exist. Making your well-being your top priority will help you find the life flow that you can control and maintain. It's like filling your own well or putting on your own oxygen mask before trying to help someone else. "Strength comes from knowing you have the equipment and tools to handle life's challenges," says Maanavi. "Give yourself time to build that equipment and procure the tools to direct the life you want to lead. I argue that being egocentric makes you a stronger contributor to your own goals, which ultimately provides a positive outcome for those in your sphere of influence who rely on your strength for progress."
Train your mental and emotional body, as well as your physical self. "Your body is stronger than you think and it WILL give you what you need when you need it IF you feed it the right mindset. That's as important as the right nutrients. A positive mindset and an even pace will get you through even the roughest of times.
Decide, commit, and act. "Being strong relies on the efficient use of energy," she explains. "Indecision saps energy and promotes the failure to act, so learn to be decisive. I consider that a gift you give to yourself and others."
Don't let fear factor into your decision-making. Maanavi hates to see people reject opportunities because of the fear that they can't do it or something might go wrong. "I understand the need to consider the pros and cons of our decisions, but be self-aware, too. Are you identifying risks or being just plain fearful? If fear is keeping you from the next step/adventure/challenge, then you are allowing it to defeat you. It makes you your own worst enemy, derailing your growth and development."
Embrace what scares you. Physique 57 has a tagline: Do the undoable. For Maanavi, this means proving that you can take on immense challenges, which will yield increased confidence and inner strength. "Life can be a constant struggle between what you don't think you can do (and remain in status quo) and what you absolutely can do (progress). Strength comes from doing what you thought you couldn't do. When you swap out comfort for the challenge, change happens and the result is a better, stronger you. It is exhilarating and memorable.
When your inner world is fragmented, the outer world is broken. When the inner world is flowery and unbroken, the outer world is healed by your presence.
De-clutter your mind. Even as little as 10 minutes of meditation a day removes the mental junk that depletes your energy. It restores focus and clarity. Maanavi insists, "The people I know who meditate are one step ahead of others. Their minds move faster, they are mentally clear and much more decisive. They are a force to be reckoned with."
Become your own best friend. Maanavi never minds spending time alone: "When I exercise or prep for a tough assignment, I feel like I am spending time with my best friend. I love the joy of watching that person make noticeable progress and, even better, breakthroughs. This time spent with my striving self is mentally nourishing and gives me the strength to do it again and again. I like that person and want to see her often.
Practice calm and self-control in adversity. "Aggression eats away at strength and creativity, replacing them with hostility and closemindedness," she explains. "Panic also weakens the soul, preoccupying the mind and prohibiting your light from shining through." Replace them with calm, controlled perseverance, which will help you achieve whatever you've set out to do.
Know who you are. Insecurity is an inner-strength killer. Your personality is the foundation of power. Get to know it well. Use tools like StrengthsFinder and the work of Kathy Kolbe to understand who you are and how you function best. Then, work on getting comfortable in your own skin. The happier you are with yourself, the less the outside world can do damage, and the more you can give in peace.
Spend time in silence. The world is a noisy place. Distractions and disruptions can chip away at your core, leaving you frazzled and beat up. Take time to rejuvenate. Set aside one day a month to completely unplug from everything. That means no email, music, TV, or people. It's a great time to connect with nature and just sit with your thoughts. The only way to calm your inner chaos is with 100 percent focus.
Set a routine. Every ounce of energy wasted drains your inner strength. Why do things inefficiently and redundantly? Control what you can control so you can focus your efforts and brainpower on the things you can't control. Grab a notebook. Separate your daily tasks into repetitive tasks and thinking tasks. Then create processes and routines for the repetitive tasks. You'll be thrilled with the time and brain space you just found.
Create the right circle. Hanging out with the wrong people can deplete your energy with every visit. Their inner weakness can suck the life from your inner core. Build your world with others who are strong inside. Keep company with those who celebrate you and feed positive energy into your life. Be brutal and protective about the company you keep. One sour person can take down the whole community.
Gain control of your body. It's tough to feel strong inside if you are unhealthy outside. Make a strong effort to be fit and attractive. Eat well, exercise, and dress in a way that makes you feel good about yourself. Be proactive about your health, and you can use your body to strengthen your soul. I gain much of my strength from kayaking and running. Sure I struggle with weight (who doesn't?), but I work hard to stay strong and attractive for the woman I love. Make yourself feel good when you look in the mirror and you'll start the day feeling powerful.
Give yourself a good home. When you can't go home and relax at night, you begin every day with a weak start. Get your house in order. If your relationship is bad, fix it or end it. If the kids are out of control, work with professionals to right the ship or send them off to boarding school. Make sure you live in a home that makes you feel happy and proud. Your home should be a safe haven that is worth working and fighting for.
Connect with the source of your power. Regardless of your religion, you can gain inner strength by connecting with your spiritual source. Through prayer, meditation, or simply deep thought, you can center yourself in the universe and understand your role in something bigger and worthy. Connect your core with the world around you, and greatly amplify your inner strength.
