Arming Ourselves For the Internal Battle We’re All Fighting
Hello my fellow Enneagram fans! It’s Your Enneagram Coach Beth, back with you again to dig a little deeper into the internal worlds of each Type. Remember, the better we understand the Enneagram and our personalities, the better we can use the insights as a GPS to keep ourselves on a healthy path in every area of our lives. It’s especially beneficial to gain a deep understanding of our Hidden Struggle, the persistent internal battle we’re always fighting, but try to keep concealed from the people around us.
Before we dive into this topic, know that this knowledge is not meant to make us cast shame or blame on ourselves or others, but rather as another reason to put our full dependence on Christ, the One who knit us together in our mother’s wombs and knows the number of hairs on our head. We belong to Him, despite every thought, emotion and battle we are fighting.
The better we understand the Enneagram and our Type's Core Motivations, the better we can use it as an internal GPS to keep ourselves on a healthy path. Enjoy this FREE DOWNLOAD of each Type's Primary Focus of Attention, the specific and automatic current that is pulling at each us in every interaction and environment.
Remember that this knowledge is not meant to bring shame about your Type's internal patterns, but rather to help you steer yourself away from unhealthy thoughts, feelings and behaviors. You are fearfully and wonderfully made in Christ's image, and He took care of everything through His life, death and resurrection.
Wherever your Primary Focus of Attention is today, take a deep breath and remember that you are God's beloved child, and no matter your internal struggles and tendencies, you can fix your eyes on Him and take rest in this truth.

As someone desiring to become their best and most authentic self, how would you rate that for 2018?
As you look ahead to 2019, in the context of personal growth, it is useful to evaluate the previous year. It's helpful to look at its successes, failures, life lessons and themes before attempting to create a different outcome in the year ahead.
Unless you bring clarity to where you’ve been and where you are, you will struggle to get to where you want to go in the future.
I created the New Year: New Journey assessment to help you identify which of the life zones you are currently living in so that you can determine the areas of life you want to transform in 2019.
