“Beauty is how you feel inside, and it reflects in your eyes. It is not something physical.” – Sophia Loren
Our society tends to focus on external beauty. Today, we want to explore what it means to discover your inner beauty. To be honest, the science behind inner beauty isn’t too complicated, but it does require being patient with yourself, being able to invest the time and effort, and being willing to learn from your mistakes (disclaimer: the most common mistake is being too hard on yourself). It’s easy to forget the easiest tools to unlock your most radiant and beautiful self. We share 5 tips to begin your journey of discovering your inner beauty.
Let’s face it. At some point in our lives or throughout our lives, we all deal with some form of social pressure to fit into norms and grapple with the desire to be liked. However, people should appreciate you for who you are, nothing more and nothing less. You should feel comfortable in your own skin. Don’t be afraid to push your boundaries. Finding your authentic voice is important, and being your authentic self takes time.
Be. Grateful for Moments of Happiness
Our lives are best lived when we enjoy happiness in small doses. In another blog post, we explore the idea of making your own gratitude jar. The best way to be grateful for the things you have is by reflecting about it every day, and writing it down.
Be. Willing to Appreciate Your Accomplishments
You should learn how to appreciate your accomplishments and take pride in the work you do, and the impact you have on the lives of those around you, friends, family, and colleagues alike.
Be. Your Own Mentor
Mentorship requires patience, and learning how to be your own mentor will be crucial to your personal growth. Being your own mentor means finding ways to coach yourself through difficult situations, and with practice or help from a leadership coach you’ll have the tools to become your own mentor.
