Our challenges prepare us for what's next.
Five years ago we quit our jobs and completely took an unknown path toward our dreams.
We really had no idea what we were doing or what we were in for. The one thing we did know was that we needed to make a big change in our life if we were ever truly going to be happy and healthy.
To make a long story short we realized we weren’t living the way we wanted deep down in our hearts. We were living someone else’s dream and it was sucking the life out of us.
To be very honest, it was scary, challenging and the most beautiful experience of our lives all rolled into one and we wouldn’t change it for anything.
Weirdly enough, going through a process like this prepared us for what would be the hardest part of our journey with the pandemic hitting just 3 years later.
Since we decided to leave the "safe path" and listen to our hearts back in 2017, we somehow felt a bit more prepared for this huge global change because our challenges prepare us for what's next.
We invite you to see any challenges you are facing right now as an opportunity to grow, stretch and become more of who you are. This is the first empowering decision that we can make when faced with a big challenge like a pandemic, starting a new career, or finding someone to spend the rest of our life with.
When we make empowering choices we deactivate those things that were disempowering us and holding us back.
The key is to keep bringing our focus back to telling ourselves an empowering story.
Own your previous manifestations.
Right now take a quick look back on the last year or even your entire life. Think of a time when you felt like you “won” or were at least feeling good and things were going your way.
This part alone will begin to shift your focus to your strengths and gifts.
When you feel the feelings of those wins, you have already shifted.
This goes to show us that we can guide our thoughts and emotions to more elevated, better-feeling states just by what we choose to give our attention to. That's huge!
Remember this: It is much harder to push your car uphill than it is to push it downhill. In fact, you need no effort at all to push a car downhill, gravity does all the work for you.
In that same way when we get focused on what's gone well, what's worked out, and what feels good, it’s like pushing a car downhill. Momentum takes over and effortlessly takes us into more of that feeling-good state.
When we push the car uphill we're not doing anything wrong, we're just making things a lot harder adding in more unnecessary stress and suffering.
Our power lies in making the decision to change our focus. When we tap into our power, life gets really fun!
Words don't teach, experience does so we've included a process below that we call the "Life Résumé". It will help you to train your focus by owning your previous manifestations.
When we own our previous manifestations (our previous wins) it gives us more confidence to manifest more wins moving forward.
As our confidence soars, our joy soars and our abundance flows in places it was once barely moving at all and that's exactly when more good things begin to manifest.
