Use Negative Events to Expand and Grow
We all have the objective of achieving our full potential, living a meaningful and fulfilling life, filled with joy and happiness. As children we are filled with dreams about our future and we are committed to a notion of excellence and possibility. Yet after observing our adult role models and listening to their negative attitude to life and unrealistic expectations, where they believe that life should just be filled with positive all the time and no challenge, we enter adulthood filled with doubt and believing life is hard and that we should just get through our weeks, working to survive, not to thrive and grow.
Make the shift today and accept that living your full potential is your birth right, the very reason you are here on this beautiful planet and that any path to success will be filled with challenge. Know that challenge is all part of the human experience and more often than not, the very catalyst that allows you to unlock hidden opportunities. When you stop having impossible expectations that you should only live a positive life and that any negative that crosses your path is bad. You open the door to realistic expectations and you begin to see challenge as part of the human experience and a very necessary part of becoming all you can be.
Start to look at everything in your life a little differently, see everything that comes your way as something that has been sent to help you to become more, to help you to grow and expand into the type of person you need to become to attract and deserve the success that you desire. This shift where you see everything, both challenges and opportunities, as merely events, that will help you to expand and grow. Stop looking for ways to get through your week and start to see everything, as being on your way to the future you desire. As you shift the way you see things and you begin searching for ways to get as much from each experience as possible, you stop being a victim and you become a victor. Someone that expects challenge, plans for it and very quickly overcomes it has a tool kit, to help them to get value from every challenge, even if that value is only experience and an opportunity to eliminate one of the ways not to do something in the future.
Accept that history serves only one purpose and that is one of learning. Learn from all the lessons it has brought you, be grateful and celebrate all the successes you have enjoyed and know that the human experience will always be filled with both positive and negative. When you accept this, you stop feeling like a victim, you equip yourself to begin uncovering your hidden potential, you see that you have endless possibilities available to you and everything becomes possible for you.
Know that any worthwhile journey to living a life of meaning, will be filled with both positive and negative experiences, adopt the adage of “I will Until”, keep taking inspired action every day that is aligned with the result you want to achieve and you can have, do or be anything you want. Strive to be the best you can be and believe in your ability to live a life of purpose, where you will reach your highest human potential and you will not only have the success that you desire, but you will feel fulfilled, content and happy.
