Do you live your life from the Outside In or the Inside Out?
How we see the world and how we process information is really important to our happiness. There are two types of people, those who live their lives from the Ouside In and those who live from the Inside Out. Let's look at what that means...
The person who lives outside in lets everything around them affect them, usually negatively. A bit like the Victim of the Victim/Owner I’ve mentioned in posts, they feel that everything is done to them and their lives are as a result of outside influences that they have no control over. It doesn’t occur to them that they have options on how they view outside circumstances and how think and react to them.
Therefore, they lurch from one disaster to another without realising that they have an option to change things, make things more positive and have a happier, healthier life.
The person who lives Inside Out is in control of their life. Yes bad/negative things still happen to them, but they view them in a different way. They know that they can control their thoughts (and therefore their emotions) about what’s happening and because they can control their thoughts and emotions, they are better able to deal with difficult situations. They think more clearly and are therefore more resourceful. They aren’t acting like a Victim ... they Own their lives.
How to Live an Inside Out Life
Those who live Inside Out are happier, in control, more resourceful and enjoy life more. How would you describe your life? Are you living Outside In or Inside Out?
