When Things Don’t Go According to Plan…
After my ‘Life’s a Journey…’ post, I wanted to show you how I apply this concept to real life. I’ve had a couple of situations not go according to plan recently, a couple of ‘knock backs’ shall we say, and I thought this was a great place to start.
Six months ago I wouldn’t have even sort out these opportunities but let’s say I had, I’d have taken these knock backs pretty bad. I’d have questioned my self-worth, my beliefs and mostly, I’d have let it scare me into never attempting to try for them again.
My negative thoughts would have run wild; ‘I don’t deserve this’, ‘I’m not good enough’, ‘there must be something wrong with me’, ‘I’m a failure’. I’d have felt unsettled, frustrated and a need to control everything.
I’d have dwelled on it and sought out all the ‘negative’ things in my life and seen them as being just my luck! The fact I didn’t get a parking space, another sign of my shitty luck! The fact I’m sat in traffic, yet another sign! Life sucks right?! Wrong!
