Every Obstacle or Setback Creates an Opportunity
It’s hard to believe that this would be true but it is and believe me I’ve done my fair questioning of “Are you kidding me?” It is usually through difficulty that we find out what we are really made of and what we really can accomplish. The question to ask when you are in the midst of difficulty is do I want to find a positive outcome and do better or do I want to look for an excuse not to try and do the same or worse. It’s the balance of positive versus negative and that can be a battle all on its own. Some have to work harder than others to find the positive side but I can assure you it’s totally worth it.
Of course it is easiest not to try, there is no effort required for that route at all and unfortunately that makes it the most travelled road but definitely not the most pleasant, positive or purposeful.
I know everyone out there has the desire to have a better life and anything worth having is definitely worth working for. If things were too easy they would be so attainable that they likely wouldn’t be desired. This is true in taking the path of “not to try”, there is absolutely no effort required in this route and I’m quite sure that there isn’t one person out there that wants to have nothing, no one says when they are a child that my life goal is “not to try”. Every child has a dream and just because we are now adults doesn’t mean that you’ve passed the point of attaining a goal you made as a child, teen or young adult. The only difference is that you just alter the timeline, instead of achieving something by the time you were 25 you now achieve it by the time you’re 35 , 45, 55, etc. The only reason you can’t achieve something should be because you are no longer on the earthly plane, other than that being an obstacle, there are none. We only create obstacles to make ourselves feel better for not doing something we really wanted to do and at the end of the day you still don’t feel better.
Some of my biggest setbacks have created the enlightenment that I needed to guide me to my greater passion and purpose.
I can honestly say without a doubt that I wouldn’t change any of the events that led me to where I am today. Of course some of them were so far from ideal that I was questioning the greater reasoning behind them at the time, but all of them I can now honor and appreciate because they led me to my passion which then led me to my purpose. The way I was able to find my purpose was within, I started listening to my inner spirit. It had always been whispering to me and I found that it was only when I started to listen and pay attention that it became louder and stronger.
My purpose has led me to a greater form of contentment, peace and balance which has motivated my desire to stay on this path.
You ARE worthy!
You CAN achieve whatever you desire!
You CAN live a life with purpose and passion!
DON’T let anyone ever tell you any different!
