As a progress specialist I speak and write a lot about achieving goals and success, but success and progress are not just for the material world. The most important progress we can make in our lifetime is actually achieving inner growth and personal development.
Have you ever:
– felt frustrated for repeating the same situations, patterns, and behaviors that get in the way of living your fullest life?
– felt lost because you don’t know who you are outside of expectations and influences?
– doubted whether your decisions have really placed you on a path that satisfies your passions, your talents, and your life goals?
I did. And that’s why for two years I embarked on a self-discovery experiment where I carefully dissected and examined my past. My goal was to look for recurring patterns, themes and dots that connected that led the way to my true self and answered some of my questions about who I am today. Little did I know that this journey would take me deeply inward and what I saw was a glimpse of something much greater.
They say the best way to learn about consciousness and find spiritual growth is through your own direct experience. Your experiences are gifts that you can use to free yourself from your inner fears, insecurities, destructive behavior patterns and mental health issues. Through awareness of these inner disturbances you can find the source of your pain and achieve healing.
I published my experiment and what I learned in Approaching Midnight. This is a journey for the brave – not one that many dare to take. The pain inside is so uncomfortable and challenging to face that most rather keep themselves busy and even create entire personalities, thoughts, and beliefs around it just to avoid dealing with it. But facing it is the price of freedom. Are you brave enough?
