When Bad Things Happen

September 22, 2014

images… your work is to make your life BETTER because of it.

End of story.

In life you always have a choice. A choice to either fall into the victimhood of the “bad” situation or you can muster up the energy to pick yourself up and transform the “bad” into something even better.

The choice to either let the situation destroy you or strengthen you is always yours. How you look at a situation determines its power over you. And how you respond to a situation determines the quality of your next life experience.

All bad experiences only happen to bring you to a better and higher place. The difficult situations are the real gifts – that’s where the real learning/growing takes place. The happier situations are just the rewards, there is no real growth during those periods.

When you can learn to pick yourself up after every fall, dust yourself off and keep going – the best way you know how – the universe always responds in kind and the rewards are tenfold. When you work towards your highest outcome, the universe will work with you to help you achieve that outcome. But when you slump into the lower outcome, it will let you sit there alone in your misery.

Do you want to rise up and live your best life? Keep searching for the higher place. Reframe all situations so that your life can be on the up-and-up. You will be given every assistance along the way as long as you are walking the higher side of your path.

When bad things happen, it is your job to make things better for yourself – any way possible. When you can get into the habit of becoming better for having had those experiences, the universe will bring you everything you desire. The choice is always yours.

When You Walk With Your Head Down

… you walk into walls. It’s common sense. When you’re not looking where you’re going, you’re most likely going to end up somewhere you don’t want to be. Most of us sleepwalk our way through our lives — running the mouse wheel of life. We are so busy trying to make a living that we […]

It’s Not About Making The Right Choice

… it’s about accepting the choice you’ve already made. Our life’s path is made up of choices and there are no mistakes when it comes to making choices, because there are no right or wrong choices, there are only different choices. Don’t get caught up in the choice you’ve made – make it and move on. […]

Looking Back to the Past

… is only helpful to the extent it allows you to move forward into your future.  If it doesn’t, it keeps you back. Your life is only ever in front of you, never behind you. The past can be an informative tool if we don’t get trapped in it. If you want to uncover the […]

A Mid-life Crisis

… requires a mid-course correction. A mid-life crisis can happen at any age, but the wisdom here is that the secret to healing it, is in the way we define it. Life naturally has its ups and downs, and life is constantly asking you to define who you are in relationship to it. You’re never […]

When You’re in the Flow

… everything moves with you. And when you are not, nothing works. When you are in the flow of your life – flowing downstream — everything flows along side you. When you are out of that flow – pushing upstream — things are much more difficult. How do you know the difference? Ask yourself how […]
