Learn how you can feel empowered from mistakes and always see the bright side of any situation no matter how painful!!
Have you been in a position in life that you feel like everything that you're doing is wrong? Or do you feel frustrated that you keep trying to change aspects of your life but everything you do seems to turn out badly or feels that way in the moment?
Well then, you're in the right place for some answers and an uplifting perspective!!
Einstein said, "Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new."
With this in mind maybe you can start to see that making mistakes is actually the beginning of a journey of discovery, opening you up to new opportunities rather than something to lament or view in a negative way.
How to literally turn EVERY perceived failure into an opportunity!!
One of the biggest perceived failures I had in my life is spending a good deal of it under the influence of drugs and alcohol. When I realised I had a problem and got help to turn the behaviour around it turned into the greatest achievement I had ever achieved in my life!! I am now 8 years sober and had I not had the ability to change my perspective of the "failure" I would not have had the strength to change my path and create a HUGE and magnificent opportunity in my life and that was to change everything!!! Everything changed for the better from the moment I could admit there was something wrong, this is key to turning the situation around and have it work for you instead of against you. It's a mental game, the mind will try and tell you one thing and you need to fight against the negativity and convince yourself that there's something good in EVERYTHING that happens in your life. It is happening FOR you not TO you!!
What happened next completely blew my mind away. Over the next 8 years, my life transformed before my eyes in ways that I would have never believed! I became more open to receiving love than I had ever known. I got honest with myself and those around me. I forgave my Mum and brother for the things they had done to me. I moved back to Australia, then to the US within a few years. I started my dream job as an intuitive life coach. I started to help people become aligned on a deep spiritual level with their true purpose to start living their lives in an enlightened way. All of this and more happened for me from my ability to take action and do what was necessary to change my mind!
It's all a matter of perspective and staying in the moment!!
"I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they're right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together." - Marilyn Monroe
There's many ways to bring about the necessary changes, I'll give you an example of something I did when I was in a deep depression a few years ago. I had a period in my life that I woke up depressed every day for 6 months. I was in a relationship that was not serving my higher purpose, and I had recently come through a difficult time in my life. Things were hard at home, and I was feeling lost and alone even while living with someone I thought I loved. I decided that I could not go on like that any more. I remembered that Dr. Joyce Brothers said, “If you change nothing, nothing changes,” so I decided to wake up an hour earlier to see if I could wake up before the depression set in. I started waking up at 6am to do my prayers, meditation, and yoga before my partner got up. This change in my routine gave me a divine space that I was craving without knowing it.
Let's get down to the nitty gritty!!
When you get down to the nitty gritty of what’s getting in your way, you’re one step closer to actually getting what you want. Most of the time, all you have to do is get out of your own way and allow life to flow with new energy. Language is a big part of creating that change. What you say affects your life in such powerful ways that you may not even realise. There’s an epic author, Florence Scovel Shinn, who wrote The Game of Life and How To Play It, Your Word Is Your Wand, and The Power Of The Spoken Word, to name a few. I highly recommend reading these books if you would like to learn more about how your words shape your reality. She was a master of creating truth in people’s lives, and she helped many people to shape their lives so they could manifest exactly what they truly desired. I also share this gift and can help you on deeper levels if you feel pulled to doing some private sessions. Give me a shout if this is you!
When you speak excuses to yourself, you block yourself off from success. When you start to use your words to speak into being the things that you desire, you will get those things flowing in your life. It’s like that old adage that what you focus on you create. If you’re focusing on all the negative things in your life, then you will get more of those. When you shift your focus to seeing everything that happens in your life as being in service to you, then you will get more of that happening! How about it? Sound like a plan peeps?
It’s a simple choice. Simple, but not easy. It takes commitment and desire to set in motion the newness that you’re craving. Decide today what you want. Decide to do something about it. Then take action on a daily basis to set those desires in motion and watch how your life changes. Speak the words, take the actions, and see results! FUCK YEAH BABY!!!!!! BOOM!!!!!
