Life isn't always a bowl full of cherries. And that bed of roses? Forget it. Sometimes life has a way of getting all sorts of crazy and all you can do is take a step back and say, "How in the world did I get here?"
When I am moving through any difficult time it often helps when I focus on finding the nugget. I'm referring to the nugget of gold that shines with the lesson of what I'm learning or how I'm growing by going through this particular uncomfortable situation.
It means looking for the silver lining that is present with every dark cloud. Because it is there every time you look for it. Every. Single. Time.
Sometimes you may have to look a little bit harder or a little bit deeper but the nugget is eventually exposed and available for your taking, if you are willing to do the work.
We have developed an aversion to feeling uncomfortable. We always want things to be just the way we want them, and all too often we get hung up in our pity party of why things are so bad or how horrible things are going to be.
When you shift into honoring the discomfort and start digging in, that's where you find the real treasure. There you'll find the things that matter to you. The things that are important to you, that speak to your heart. You'll discover what you don't want, and in the process, you'll discover what you really DO want to feel, have, and experience.
You'll take a step closer into your truth and reconnect a little more deeply to who you really are... and that is a beautiful thing. Anything that helps you shift more fully into yourself is a valuable gift. For those things you can be grateful.
So I ask you, have you started looking for your nuggets yet?
Learning from George Ross
I'm so excited! Since there was such a great response to my Making Mindset Magic program that started this week, and so many asked, I'm offering it again!
You know this is for you if:
- you're ready to get out of your own way
- you're ready to stop beating yourself up for not being where you want to be, doing what you want to do, or feeling how you want to feel.
- you're ready to do what it takes to start believing in yourself
We all get in our own way sometimesDeborah, and it's ok. That's exactly why it helps to have someone on this journey with you... to help you get unstuck. From personal experience, I can tell you that things are just better - and easier - when you have more peace, more power, and more purpose in your life.
The picture above is me with George Ross. I'm finding ways to keep learning and growing from experts in their field, just like I'm encouraging you to do. The best time to make a change is now, in this very moment.
Go here for more details. Stay tuned for f-r-e-e upcoming webinars that'll dive into some of the things we'll cover in the 9-week Making Mindset Magic course.
Here's to unlocking your potential and experiencing your possibilities!
See you soon,
