We like to have background noise — whether we’re in the car, at home, or in the office — we have the radio or TV on or the sounds of kids and coworkers keep a constant white noise. How many of us like quiet and solitude? How many like introspection?
More often than not, our outer life is the result of our inner life. Try as we might to hide certain aspects of ourselves, our character and motivations leak out. Do we like what we see? Do others? Here are four tips that will change your inner life and, consequently, impact your outer life:
- Allow time to spend time in solitude ands silence.
- Surround yourself with good counselors — this includes family, friends, and professionals.
- Strive for balance in your personal life, family life, and work life — prioritize your time.
- Be accountable to someone(s) — a life examined is a successful life.
