Do you live your life from the outside in? With our responsibilities, bills, relationships, media and all the stuff we fill our existence with, much of the time it’s as if the world is telling us how to live our lives. It’s no wonder we feel we are pulled in many directions at once and have less time in a day to accomplish our goals, let alone think about ourselves. The cult of multi-tasking with electronic gadgetry (which my students insist does not impede upon their studies) research is showing does not really help us focus or accomplish our tasks throughout the day. *

When the circumstances of the world feel like they dictate our every move we can become overwhelmed. Sound familiar?

Much of this depends on how we perceive ourselves and the reality around us. Perception is an act of creation.

One of the blessings of my creative life is the ability to brainstorm and manifest lots of ideas. Once my mind gets those RPM’s up to speed its hard to stop it, especially when I want to sleep at night. When I found the secret of meditation it calmed the chattering monkeys inside my head enough for me to rest. But the real benefit of meditation came from the introspection that graced my consciousness over time. I learned the benefits of living from the inside out.

This post is not so much about the virtues of meditation as much as it’s about spending some time understanding who you really are and what you are really about. When you live your life from this center of your being events around you look very different. Greg Mooers is a life coach committed to seeing people discover and follow their true purpose. He helped me see mine clearly so I can help others too. Greg has a free transformational teleseminar that you might want to check out.

Another path to finding who you are is to have a good conversation with yourself. This may sound crazy at first, but its just another form of introspection. Check out this Blog post by Chris Guillebeau and take a step inside who you really are.

Once you start living from the inside out you will view yourself differently, understand your motivations more clearly, make decisions more calmly, and probably get a better nights sleep!

To your truth,

Greg
