Stop! Look at where you are right now. Notice your job, your relationships, your financial situation, your home…and let’s talk about the areas where you’re not feelin’ it! Let’s gain some perspective on the areas that are a drain and/or you just want to pull you’re hair out about!
If you’re not feeling awesome, not feeling congruent and free and happy in a particular area, got news for ya…we need to pay attention to the lessons before us, or even look at how this “bad” situation may have come into your life to lead you to a much greater experience!
What do I mean? Well, let me share this small story with you:) I needed to take a small short-term p/t advertising job on the side to bring in some extra income…it is what it is…I needed it for my kids. So I got offered this job from a friend the same day I asked God to just help me out as I get my seminars up and running….so I was like..wow..okay…that was cool:)…perfect timing…totally grateful! I knew because how it manifested so quickly, that there would be a reason I was being brought down this path. So I said to myself..okay..I’m all in, gonna bring my A game and do my absolute BEST, even though I already knew this obviously wasn’t any long term career for me. But my point is regardless, I was still going to “show up” with the best intentions for doing a great job!
So I learned to “hit the pavement” going business to business…longgg freaking day for those of you who are in that field lol. But I kept at it and at the same time was actively listening to the conversations I was having with business owners and looking for clues as to why I was “doing this”. When I entered a health club to speak on advertisement, that’s when it hit me…I was like ahhhhhh!!!! This is the type of business I need to partner up with for my seminars! The gyms are all about making yourself better, whereby making your life better! So I got this rush as if I was supposed to talk about my own mission in helping people…and so I did! The gym owner was like, you can have the seminars HERE, and then went on to tell me how he went on to groupon just to get the word out and suggested that I do the same. So I thought..wow! Great idea! Great way to reach out to people I’ve never met! Then I went into a large well known camera store and spoke to the owner…the seminars came up again, and he suggested I meet him at his health club Lifetime so he can introduce me around and connect with people there too
Next, I called groupon all excited about getting a campaign program together and… they said NO! (wtf??) , they don’t put up seminars!…But then when I explained how it’s under the umbrella of health and wellness and the gyms…and how I explained that this is my PASSION and how I HAVE to do this…they said, “Okay we will get back to you”…so they did, and responded with ….”Well your passion got you in! We’re going to set up a whole promotion for you …we never do this lol” whoot whoot! So now they are preparing the promotion and the first seminar is set for Thursday August 15th, 7-8 pm at Equinox health club in Woodbury, NY! And yes..I’ll say it…I’d love to see you there if you can make it!” I’m totally psyched!! Let’s see what happens!!
Moral of this post…actively find the lesson, the reason, and the “why” as to where you are. You are going through it for a reason. I believe we are always guided. An an oldie but goodie… “Always do your best!” … in every situation…because the reason you are in that experience may not be the obvious one…search for the lesson…your path is unfolding perfectly to get you where you want to be 😉
I’d love to hear about a similar situation you may have had that led you to something really cool in a post below!!
COOL QUOTE ALERT !
“Most of my major disappointments have turned out to be blessings in disguise. So whenever anything “bad” happens to me, I kind of sit back and feel, “Well, if I give this enough time, it’ll turn out that this was good, so I shouldn’t worry too much about it!” -William Gaines
With crazy love and gratitude!
