Laid off? Keep experiencing the same lack of money issues? Frustrated because things keep happening that feel out of your control? Dating the ‘same loser’ for the millionth time? Business declining – again?
It’s common to keep experiencing the same patterns over and over again and become frustrated because we can’t seem to stop the cycle. We may have even fallen into a victim mindset because we are so mad at ourselves that this happened yet again and we can’t see how to prevent it!
Rather than beating yourself up, what if you try taking a step away from the experience and all the emotion attached to it and look at why it might be happening in the first place?
Why does it seem like just when you are starting to get ahead, everything, large and small, starts conspiring against you?
If you are looking at these “bad” experiences as a lesson you are to learn or a skill to master, you might be able to see the opportunity available to you in a different light.
What if you ultimately believe the Universe is conspiring in your favor – not against you?
This underlying belief can and will make the difference between the success or failure of your business, your relationships, and your life.
You might be able to see an opportunity for yourself to grow rather than simply complain about your bad karma, or the economy, or your jerk of a boss, or match.com.
Even the terrible, hardest parts of our past; traumas from our childhood; excruciating divorces and heartbreaks; awful abuses and shames; happened for a reason.
What if these experiences happen for us to grow and, ultimately, develop a strength based on that experience rather than a simply a crappy struggle that we keep repeating because that’s what the universe has in store for us. It’s about taking that statement a step further and looking at events and experiences as happening in our favor rather than happenstance.
Owning these experiences, taking the time to understand the lesson we are to take away, and then using this new-found strength in our business to help others is the ultimate purpose for all of us.
I say all of us knowing you are here, reading this newsletter. There is a spirituality behind all of it.
All of this may sound good intellectually (or maybe not), but how do my struggles married to an alcoholic for 25 years or feeling neglected or not a priority as a child transition into running a business? How does it help me be a better copywriter or coach or healer?
This can range from knowing and living in your true power to learning to love yourself fully and without conditions.
While the answer looks different for everyone, the take away is to first understand the lesson you learned.
For me, and my past experiences it was about learning what it means to be in my power. That I am worthy just as I am. And while “going invisible” might have kept me safe in the past, being seen serves me now. To know that I am worthy just as I am.
Living your life on your terms is a movement.
You can live your life on your terms doing anything you want – you might just need to do things and change your perspective.
You have to see the truth, especially the ugly truth about ourselves we often instinctively want to avoid, in order to create a change in your results.
Choose to be open and actively seek the truth. And realize even the bad stuff – the experiences we hate or the parts of ourselves we hide from others – were there for us to experience for a reason.
The Universe is conspiring in your favor. Always.
