Hey Folks! I am sure that each one of you has experienced a bad event, situation or circumstance at one point or another in your life. I sure have and I know what amount of confusion, turmoil and gloom I felt then. When caught up in a vortex that brings you down or drains your energy into negativity, hopelessness and despondency it is hard to merely understand what is actually going on and not to speak of the possibility for you to discover the right path out of this situation.
For instance, let us assume that you have made a certain choice in your life, expecting that this choice would deliver prosperity, thriving and freedom in your life – both personal and professional. Like for example, you have chosen to pursue a certain business or career path, expecting the best results. After hard work and trying, finally the promised event happened: you got the job or you created your business.
And what could be more exhilarating or fulfilling than the manifestation of this long-aspiring event?
It seems as if you finally made it and accomplished your dream! It has manifested! But shortly thereafter, you experience things you never knew before.
- What about the long-working hours you did not consider?
- A colleague at work who drives you crazy!
- Less time to spend with your family, spouse or kids.
- Unable to pursue your biological rhythm.
- Lack of knowledge or understanding for some professional topics.
And on and on goes the list…
Therefore, out of this good event, circumstance or adventure, emerged some qualities which influence your life now in the unfavorable when not adverse sense.
What do you do in this situation?
First of all: Become aware. Become alert and pay attention to what is happening to you and around you.
Second thing: Define the good event. Verbally illustrate the good event and all of your good, promising and inspiring predictions and then write these down on a piece of paper. Next to this column, write down your actual experience and notice how some good assumptions did come to life, did manifest and how some good assumptions took a different course or even the opposite course.
Third thing: Draw a conclusion: Out of each good event, both good and bad things develop.
- “How am I able to go about the bad experiences and turn them into more favorable possibilities?”
- “What is in here for me?”
- “Where am I supposed to look now?”
- “What did I learn? What was my key take-away from this crisis or entanglement?”
