Why would we ever do anything, including work on ourselves?
I was talking to a person dear to me recently and we wandered into a question that is very much at the core of this project, Investigative Selfism:
Why would we do anything, ever?
My reflections led me to this episode.
I believe that behind any investment in ourselves, we find three ideas that can continue moving us forward in times of good and bad.
1. I matter
How I feel matters, how I am with myself and others matters, what I do matters.
2. I have agency
I am capable of affecting change in my own life.
3. I have options
No matter how limited my options may seem sometimes, there is space for me to choose my actions, my intentions, how I see the world, and how I want to show up in it.
These ideas might seem simple — but to truly believe in them requires a lot of work. And reminders, like this podcast episode/video!
For a deeper dive into your self-talk, I have a workshop for you! 🙏🏾
I’m giving these workshops for free now in the cities where I happen to be (Medellín, Colombia, and São Paulo, Brazil), so please follow me on Instagram below now to miss me in your town! ❤️
