"You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You must do the thing which you think you cannot do." -Eleanor Roosevelt
What exactly is Living From Within?
It's living a life in which you are satisfied and content with your life. Living from within means that you have gain insights from your failures and are confident enough to cheer on your successes.
When you think about yourself, do you focus on your strengths or your weaknesses? Too often in life, we look back on all the mistakes we've made and yet don't look at what we've learned from them. We all have endured unfair circumstances in our lives, but it's not about how courageous we were in the time of difficulty, but how we have overcome and matured spiritually, emotionally and mentally. When you bounce back after a misfortune, you are fueled with the knowledge that failure is success in disguise. Perhaps, you didn't get that job you had hoped for or married the person you loved, but you learn something about yourself in the process. Was that job ideal for you or was it replacing some other need you need to fulfill? Would your life really have been happier with this person? Or did you need to hold on to a relationship because it was the right thing to do? Let go of what's holding you back. Chances are, you are the only one getting in the way of your success.
It's time you embraced what's wonderful about you. You have unique talents, gifts and skills. Your sense of your self-worth is important in all aspects of your life. Don't allow childhood wounds, and other sources of pain to control your life. Let that pain be a source of motivation for you to love yourself and enjoy your life.
If you are having a hard time with relishing in your self-worth, seek spiritual guidance. Even if you don't know how great you, God knows it. Stop hiding behind your past, live in the present and look to the future. If you donít share your greatness with the world, no one will ever know it.
