The Inner Work with Mathew Micheletti
#1 best-selling author Mathew Micheletti offers you an invitation to true freedom and lasting happiness. Join the conversation as he discusses his important book "The Inner Work" with Matt O'Neill.
As they discuss, it’s called inner ‘work’ because lasting happiness actually takes discipline and effort. If it were easy, everyone would already be happy. Learn how you can catch yourself from spiraling into the negative patterns of the mind. Your awareness could be the key to turning a seemingly bad situation into lasting happiness.
Here are some power takeaways from today’s conversation:
- Practice discipline and effort to do inner work.
- Be aware of the addictions of your mind.
- Remember you are always worthy and loved.
- Hold yourself accountable for your actions.
- Exercise your freedom to choose.
[02:05 ] Putting Energy Into Inner Work:
Instead of exerting time and effort into pursuing comfort, put your energy into inner work. It takes a lot of effort, courage and discipline. Though there’s a hard road ahead, it’ll all be worth it.
[09:30 ] Addictions of the Mind:
Your mind can be addicted to emotions and encourage thoughts and beliefs that feed this. When you do inner work, you must experience discomfort. Be aware of your mind’s patterns. It takes discipline and control to avoid following what your ego tells you to do.
[22:29 ] Shame Consciousness:
You learn shame from someone else. Your mind ends up combining self-worth with the choices you make. However, remember that you are always loved and worthy. Shame and guilt don’t help anyone. You must be accountable for what you do.
[28:52 ] Freedom to Choose:
In every circumstance, you always have the freedom to choose. In that time, stay in discomfort and truly think about your choice. Your response determines whether you suffer or turn difficult times into something beautiful and good.
[19:45 ] — [19:49 ] “Anything the ego promises you, it delivers you the exact opposite of that promise.” - Matt
[23:32 ] — [23:40 ] “Shame, the feeling that I’m not good enough, wasn’t a thought that was created. It was a thought that I inherited or learned.” - Matt
[32:59 ] — [33:06 ] “You were still doing the very best you could at all times, even if what you were doing was wrong. And that’s why you don’t have to add guilt on top of your action.” - Matt
[41:52 ] — [42:01 ] “Every single external circumstance that happens to us that’s negative, there’s always an empowered option.” -Matt
