6 Steps to Uncover Your Inner Greatness

Published

find your greatness

Have you ever wondered how another highly successful person can help you channel your inner greatness to phenomenal success? Do you want to get more in touch with your own inner greatness?

Everyday and all over the world people are doing amazing things. There are people who have mastered their passions and who are achieving some magnificent results. Likely there is an expert who is doing exactly what you would want to be doing right now.

These people are not super-human or somehow unreachable, but rather they do everyday things and have strategies that you can learn to be highly successful as well.

Here are the 6 steps that you can take for uncovering your inner greatness:

1. Define exactly what you want

Often people have no idea what they want in life and they are miserable because of it. The first step is to define exactly what it is that you want. When you make it clear what you are after your mind has a definite goal in mind that it can shoot for and propel you towards. Often times luck or coincidence will just appear giving you just the opportunities you need.

“There is one quality which one must possess to win, and that is definiteness of purpose, the knowledge of what one wants, and a burning desire to possess it.” –Napoleon Hill

2. Find out who has done it before you

The key is to research and get an understanding of who has actually done what you want to do in life rather than the people who just talk about it. Take your time to get a good understanding of the experts who know about becoming the person you want to become. Choose your expert carefully. Find the best. Ask yourself, “Would I really want to become just like this person?”

 

3. Absorb all of this expert’s content

Whether it is a YouTube channel, a blog, or any free content that your expert has, start there and absorb all of it. You want to consume as much information possible from this teacher of yours so that you can get a feel for this person’s inner mindsets as well as what they do to get amazing results.

You want to aim for being this teacher’s best student. You will already know all of that person’s concepts and ideas before going on to the next level.

 

4. Bring the expert into your life

If you can be friends with the expert or could have them as a coach I would highly encourage doing so. Huge growth can happen when you get a coach or align with positive influences who can push you to new heights.

When you get a coach or mentor they will be able to teach you new things, but more importantly they can take you to a higher level of thinking and they will push you to become even better.

Often when you are pursuing this new skill you will attract new friends and people into your life who are going after just what you want. This is an amazing time to befriend the person who has the skills you are looking for.

 

5. Go learn something inversely related

Testing all of your newfound knowledge and skills with something contradictory yet still related will be the test that propels you even further. Two areas of life such as relationships and mixed martial arts, or weight lifting and getting good at business is how you can relate this one.

This is important so that you will at first see these subjects as completely different and unrelated, but soon you will find that the key underlying principles for having success in one area will lead you to success in this new area.

By mastering more subjects that don’t seem related you will find yourself to grow even more in your knowledge and application of your first skill set.

 

6. Teach your skill in the original craft to others

Probably the most important thing that you can do to propel yourself to be an expert on any subject is to go out and teach on that subject.

When you teach others your knowledge you have to be an expert. In addition you apply yourself with the basics, allowing yourself to go back through your own learning process to teach it to others. This allows you to go deeper in all the knowledge that you have acquired on the subject.

When you teach your newfound skill and knowledge to others it will lead you to even further progression of bringing out your inner greatness.

Failure is an integral part of life as life is incomplete without failures.

5 Indicators of Unresolved Attachment Trauma

Published

on

Emotional Attachment Trauma

Trauma caused during specific stages of a child’s development, known as attachment trauma, can have lasting effects on a person’s sense of safety, security, predictability, and trust. This type of trauma is often the result of abuse, neglect, or inconsistent care from a primary caregiver.

Individuals who have not fully processed attachment trauma may display similar patterns of behavior and physical or psychological symptoms that negatively impact their adult lives, including the choices they make in relationships and business.

Unfortunately, many people may not even be aware that they are struggling with trauma. Research estimates that 6% of the population will experience PTSD in their lifetime, with a majority of males and females having experienced significant trauma.

Unresolved attachment trauma can significantly impair the overall quality of a person’s life, including their ability to form healthy relationships and make positive choices for themselves. One well-known effect of unhealed attachment trauma is the compulsion to repeat past wounds by unconsciously selecting romantic partners who trigger their developmental trauma.

However, there are other less recognized but equally detrimental signs of unprocessed developmental trauma.

 

Five possible indications of unresolved attachment trauma are:

 

1.  Unconscious Sabotage

Self-sabotage is a common pattern among individuals with unprocessed attachment trauma. This cycle often begins with hurting others, which is then followed by hurting oneself. It is also common for those with attachment trauma to have heightened emotional sensitivity, which can trigger this cycle.

This pattern can manifest in lashing out, shutting down, or impulsive behavior that leads to feelings of guilt, shame, and self-loathing.

Many people with attachment trauma are not aware of their wounds and operate on survival mode, unconsciously testing or challenging the emotional investment of those around them, and pushing them away out of self-preservation and fear of abandonment.

This can lead to a pattern of making poor choices for themselves based on impulsivity.

 

2. Persistent Pain

 
Chronic pain is a common symptom that can stem from early trauma. Studies have shown a connection between physical conditions such as fibromyalgia, headaches, gastrointestinal issues, insomnia, muscle aches, back pain, chest pain, and chronic fatigue with the aftermath of chronic developmental trauma, particularly physical abuse.
 
Research has found that individuals with insecure attachment styles, such as anxious, avoidant, or disorganized, have a higher incidence of somatic symptoms and a history of physical and emotional abuse in childhood compared to those with a secure attachment style.
 
 

3. Behaviors That Block Out Trauma

 
Trauma blocking practises are used to avoid the pain and memories connected with traumatic events.
 
Emotional numbing, avoidance, and escape via briefly pleasurable activities that distract from terrible memories or suffering are common examples. Unfortunately, this escape habit stops people from successfully processing and recovering from their trauma.
 
Furthermore, when the pain resurfaces, more and more diversions are necessary to continue ignoring it. This can be seen in compulsive behaviours such as drug or alcohol addiction, emotional eating, numbing oneself through relationships, workaholism, excessive or dangerous exercise routines, compulsive internet or technology use, or any other compulsive behaviour used to distract yoursef from intrusive thoughts and emotions.
 
These actions have the potential to prolong a cycle of avoidance and repression, preventing persons from healing and progressing.
 

4. A strong need for control

 
It’s understandable that some people may struggle with control issues in their adult lives, especially if they felt helpless or vulnerable during their childhood.
 
This can happen if someone had an overbearing caregiver who didn’t let them make their own choices, expected too much from them, or didn’t take care of them properly. As adults, they might try to control everything in their life to feel more in control and less anxious or scared. This might be because they didn’t feel like they had control over their life when they were a child.
 
It’s important to remember that everyone’s experiences are different and it’s okay to seek help if you’re struggling with control issues.
 
 

5. Psychological Symptoms That Are Not Explained

 
Individuals with a history of developmental trauma may experience a range of psychological symptoms, including obsessive-compulsive behavior, intense mood swings, irritability, anger, depression, emotional numbing, or severe anxiety.
 
These symptoms can vary in intensity and may occur intermittently throughout the day. People with this type of trauma may attempt to “distract” themselves from these symptoms by denying or rationalizing them, or may resort to substance abuse or behavioral addictions as coping mechanisms. This can be a maladaptive way of trying to numb their symptoms.
 
 

What to do next if you’re suffering from emotional attachment trauma?

 
Everyone’s experience of healing from trauma is unique. It’s important to be aware of whether you have experienced childhood developmental trauma and how it may be affecting your relationships as an adult. Sometimes, the effects of trauma can be overwhelming and we may try to push them away or avoid them.
 
If you notice that you’re engaging in these behaviors, it’s important to seek help from a trauma therapist who can support you on your healing journey. Remember, you’re not alone and it’s never too late to start healing.
 

There are several ways that people can work to overcome emotional attachment trauma:

  1. Therapy: One of the most effective ways to overcome emotional attachment trauma is through therapy. A therapist can help you process your experiences, understand the impact of your trauma on your life, and develop coping strategies to manage symptoms.
  2. Support groups: Joining a support group of people who have had similar experiences can be a great way to find validation, empathy, and a sense of community.
  3. Mindfulness practices: Mindfulness practices such as meditation, pilates, prayer time with God or journaling can help you become more aware of your thoughts, emotions, and physical sensations, and develop a sense of spiritual connection and self-regulation.
  4. Trauma-focused cognitive-behavioral therapy (TF-CBT): This is a type of therapy that is specifically designed to help individuals process and recover from traumatic events.
  5. Building a safety net: Building a support system of people you trust, who are there for you when you need them, can help you feel more secure and safe in your life.

It’s important to remember that healing from emotional attachment trauma is a process and it may take time. It’s also important to find a therapist who is experienced in treating trauma, who you feel comfortable talking with, and who can help you develop a personalized treatment plan.
