When was the last time in your business (or life) that things didn’t go as you planned? Assuming you can answer that question, you’re not alone!
This is true even in business, even when we follow someone’s launch plan to a tee, when we complete all the “assignments* our coach gives us, or we post on social media every day. Yep… even then, things don’t always go as planned.
The more we normalize this, the better.
Disappointment is a natural reaction when things don’t go as intended. Expressing how you feel, sourcing a creative outlet, and avoiding blame may help you cope.
Breakups. Job loss. Health challenges. Sometimes, things just don’t work out the way you planned.
It’s okay to grieve for lost potential.
It’s okay to grieve for time spent surviving instead of living.
It’s okay to wish you could go back and change the past.
And it’s okay if you don’t feel up to it yet, but one day you’ll be able to stand up and decide to create a new future to make up for it.
Reminding ourselves that the situation is not permanent and things will start moving again soon, in the direction we intended, helps. Close your eyes and breathe deeply in and out.
Repeat to yourself: “I am a success. Things work out for me with ease. I now relax and open the door to my wisdom. The right answer comes to me with ease.”
This is you telling your mind to relax and believe things will be alright. And they are alright; we just have let our mind take over in this moment of upheaval. Speaking to your mind with kindness and affirmations enables the door to be opened back to your wisdom. Try it!
In life, as we know, things pass. Situations resolve themselves one way or another. Keeping this in mind is helpful as it allows you to go back to focusing on the bigger picture and not leave everything else aside while this crisis is happening.
