You Betta Recognize

May you be happy. May you be healthy. May you be free of danger. May you be free of suffering and the causes of suffering. May you be peaceful, kind, wise, and skillful. May you be at ease.
Learning to recognize what you are feeling is the first step in developing emotional intelligence and coping skills.

In these trying times, it's more important than ever to understand ourselves on a deeper level. Why do we respond to internal and external cues the way that we do? What motivates us when we strive for personal fulfillment?

We all go through times of feeling lost without purpose. It's easy to get stuck in a cycle of negative thoughts and feelings, but you don't have to stay stuck. When we take the time to explore our habitual responses to internal cues, we can better recognize ourselves and make positive changes in our lives. If you're feeling directionless and unable to move forward, it's time for a serious reality check.

Explore Your Habitual Responses

We often respond to internal cues in predictable ways that lead us down paths that aren’t conducive to our personal growth. You may have habits such as procrastination or avoidance that keep you from achieving your goals and moving forward in life. By exploring your habitual responses to these internal cues, you can start taking the necessary steps towards achieving personal fulfillment in both your work and relational life.

Understand What Matters Most

When striving towards personal fulfillment, it’s important to understand what matters most to you and why. Having an understanding of your values and priorities helps keep us focused on the things that matter rather than chasing after fleeting moments of pleasure or contentment. A good way to figure out what truly matters is by asking yourself questions like “what would I do if I weren’t afraid?” or “What do I value above all else?” Taking the time to listen deeply is key here—you need to be honest with yourself about what truly drives you in order to pursue real satisfaction.

Our community uses a nine-point exploration and discovery process that helps us to increase our social, emotional, and somatic intelligence. Each of these nine points has a clearly defined way of understanding our own strengths and challenges. For instance, when it comes to community organizing and fighting for social justice, some of use may be more inclined towards activism, while others may be more interested in promoting education and understanding. However, all of us can play a role in furthering social justice. For example, someone who is an "Activist" might be passionate about protesting and raising awareness for a cause, while someone who is a "Mediator" might be more interested in working behind the scenes to resolve conflicts. No matter what your focus, attention, or intention, you can use your unique strengths to contribute to social justice in your own way.

Be Willing To Take Risks And Embrace Change

Finally, being willing to take risks and embrace change are essential elements of finding personal fulfillment. Life is full of unknowns—and while this can be scary at first, it also presents opportunities for growth and adventure if we allow ourselves the space for it. There will always be some level of risk when pursuing new paths or ambitions; but with courage comes great reward! Think about how much more fulfilling your life will be once you start taking those risks and making positive changes towards something bigger than yourself.

Re-discovering yourself can be a difficult process but one worth taking on if searching for lasting personal fulfillment is the goal. Being able to recognize underlying thoughts and feelings while exploring habitual responses helps us better understand what drives us internally—which ultimately leads us down a path towards real satisfaction with life as a whole!
