Self-Improvement — http://www.noahhammond.com Today, we’re going to be talking about self-improvement and a really simple tip that can bring a lot of awareness to exactly where your self-improvement needs to be heightened and ultimately will guarantee your success.
My awareness was brought to this subject by a yoga teacher named Tom Kelly who owns the Soul of Yoga in Antoninos, California. At one of their spiritual discussions, they brought up this topic and it really resonated with me and so, I had to get it out there to you all.
What they discussed is the fact that if something triggers you, if something causes you a REACTION, if something causes you to feel bad inside, annoyed, frustrated, angry, offended, or any of those things, if something does that, it means that you have a resonant frequency inside you. It means that you have an emotional pain or blockage around that subject.
What I mean is this. If I were to call you a thief — most of you are probably not thieves, so I would use that as an example.
“Hey, you’re a thief!”
You would probably think:
It wouldn’t bother you at all.
But now let’s say you had some sort of bad habit and I called you out on it and say:
“Hey, that’s a really bad habit you have there.”
You would probably think:
“Whatever! It’s not that big of a deal!”
The difference is that when I called you a thief, you had NO emotional blockage around that thing. You had NO internal baggage around that topic and so, there was NO reaction.
But when I called you on one of your bad habits, you had an internal blockage about this. You had a bit of emotional work or healing, or some self-discovery or self-improvement that needs to go on around that topic, and so you had a negative egoic reaction.
My advice in this video is to take this awareness and apply it to your self-development practice. Use it to get PINPOINT accuracy on where you need to work by poking at yourself and see where the reaction lies.
Where do you get offended? Where do you feel the need to defend yourself? Where do you feel angry or frustrated as a result of something that somebody says?
That’s exactly where you want to put your work, effort, and attention. That’s what will guarantee your success, if you make a commitment to always dive straight into the heart of the beast, so to speak — the heart of darkness.
Go straight into your BIGGEST problems, your most reactive and annoyed feelings and you are going to find that your GREATEST growth lies directly in there.
I hope this has brought some awareness to you. If you feel like you have a new awareness that you would like to share, something that you see or something that you would love to work on and you want to share it, start the process of working on that blockage by sharing it below this video.
The first step in releasing something is getting it out there, making the acknowledgment of it, and making the decision to work on it.
