As we get close to Ignite Denver #19, we put out the call to our presenters to solicit pre-event blog posts to promote their Spark. With that in mind, we bring you: SparkPlugs!

The outside world is a world of opinions. Growing up you are told how you should feel and what you should think.  To the degree that you live life from the outside-in, the foundation of what you feel, do and say is dictated by the outside world.  Do the answers you get from the outside world feel soul satisfying?

If you live your life from the outside-in, your willingness to conform or desire to please interrupts your ability to connect with your inner wisdom.  Over time this becomes a self-defeating pattern. It becomes easier to conform than to act in alignment with what you feel is true. If you want to feel connected with your own life, eventually you must redirect your attention to the source of wisdom inside of you.

The outside world is a mirror, reflecting your intentions, your beliefs and your attitudes. Is there disharmony in your environment?  Is the interruption to the flow outside or within? The directionality of your perspective takes you either to judgment or to truth. Looking from outside in you see judgment.  The world of opinion is unreliable. The truth is unavailable.

When you slow down and get quiet, you know what is true, don’t you?  When you interact with your environment from the inside out you build a sense of trust in your inner resources. You must make the inner journey to build that relationship. Your perspective changes. Your own experience becomes your guide to living life.

Wouldn’t you rather live from the inside-out?

Come see Laurie Seymour give her Spark Start living ‘Inside-Out’ instead of ‘Outside-In’” on Thursday, February 26th 2015 at the Oriental Theater in Denver.
