How to Build a Strong Inner Foundation for Your Life

Have you ever thought about whether you have a strong inner foundation that helps to guide your life choices? When I say foundation, I mean the inner structure that helps you live your life with less stress and overwhelm.

Having a strong inner foundation is an important part of intentional living because it helps you make decisions that shape your future for the better. If your foundation isn't solid, you might feel like life is constantly knocking you down just when things seem to be getting back on track.

Think of your inner foundation in terms of what supports you and gives you strength. You can build your inner foundation upon your:

Mindset: The quality of your thoughts

Values: What’s important to you

Habits: Daily routines that keep you grounded

Strengths: The things you’re naturally good at

Relationships: People who make you feel secure and supported

If you’re constantly trying to make changes in your life but nothing seems to stick, consider first whether you have the foundation necessary to support you.

“Building your foundation isn’t a one-time event. Habits will slip and you will need to rebuild them periodically. Your goals may change, forcing you to change your foundation to suit them. But if you’ve spent the time investing in a foundation initially, these changes are maintenance, not a complete reconstruction.”
