Ep 151: Why Your Motives Matter for You But Not For Other People

One of the most important questions I have learned to ask myself when trying to decide what is the right thing for me to do is “What are my motives?”. Your motives really matter when it comes to your own next steps, but other people don’t care about your motives. They care about your actions. That’s why episode 151 of the Fragmented to Whole Podcast is about why your motives matter for you, but not for other people!

In this episode of the Fragmented to Whole Podcast, I’m sharing the importance of understanding your own motives and actionable steps you can take right now to live on purpose. When it comes to the question of motives, you have to remember that what your motives are matter to you because why you’re doing something has everything to do with the energy you bring to it. Being clear on your purpose and your values, will allow you to more deeply understand your motives and live on purpose. 

It doesn’t matter to the other person why you did something; what matters is how other people receive your intentions, or your actions.If you want to be a good, decent person, and live life on purpose, then your motives are so important to your actions. So be sure to tune in to all the episodes to receive tons of practical tips on living a more whole life and to hear even more about the points outlined above.

What is Fragmented to Whole: Life Lessons from 12 Step Recovery?

This is the podcast “Fragmented to Whole: Life Lessons from 12 Step Recovery.” It will help people who want to heal to move from fragmented to whole.

Hi, I’m Barb! I share my experience, strength and hope from 12 step recovery in each episode. They’re all 20 minutes or less. Unlike most recovery podcasts where you hear a person’s whole story, in this one each episode is about a specific topic.

There are many life lessons from 12 step recovery that are applicable to those in and outside of recovery. This podcast brings some of those lessons to the airwaves, including such topics as learning acceptance, recognizing and overcoming victim mentality and establishing healthy boundaries.
