all possess extraordinary inner qualities, somewhere deep within. Whether or
not were aware of them, or tap into them, is up to us. Our internal beauty is
profoundly more important than physical appearances. Its something that we
must develop, nurture and appreciate. We can rarely offer anything to anyone
that we do not already have within our own nature. We must never allow a
limited belief system or any self-doubt to influence our journey.
we face challenges in life, having inner health means we are willing to let go
of the small things and concentrate on the larger picture. We have unlimited

animals? Do I accept other people as they are? All these attributes and a host
of others relate to our inner health.
Make a list of: “Things I do to help others.” This gives tangible
evidence of our admirable qualities and how we give service to others.
Write a list: “What bad habits am I willing to overcome?” This
exercise will help us to become more aware of limiting and repetitive behaviors
that don’t work, which tend to block our inner health and beauty.
Write a paragraph: “How can I handle challenges more productively?”
Surrounding ourselves with people who have qualities we admire can instill
values such as: humility, compassion, love, courtesy, cooperation, patience,
tolerance, acceptance and gentleness.
Write a paragraph: “How am I willing to become more of a team
player?” If we are, then our internal health will tend to shine
through us and people will notice.
Make a list of: “Fears and regrets I am willing to let go of.” What
is important is freedom from regrets of the past and fears of the future. When
we focus on staying in the now; in the present moment, we have gratitude for
all of the abundance in our lives, and fears seem to dissolve.
