What happens when someone lets you down or disappoints you? You get hurt, angry, and most of the time, you even dwell on it, right?
Well, what if I told you that you can turn these hurtful disappointments into something so positive you’ll begin to look at them with gratitude.
Yep, those are what are called blessings in disguise!
You see, nothing happens to us by chance. Everything happens for a reason. Circumstances arise in our lives to teach us and redirect us toward growth. But very few acknowledge this and choose to focus on the disappointments while trying to make sense of why things happened the way they did.
That my friend, is a great way to drain your energy!
Where focus goes, energy flows!
When you step back, stop analyzing, and just allow yourself to see that every disappointment is truly something to be grateful for, you will find yourself building strength with the ability to overcome any circumstance much faster as you move forward.
How do you start? By redirecting your focus toward what makes you feel good and away from what makes you feel, not-so-good. The more you marinade in a feel good state, the more you’re going to create “feel good” experiences.
Remember, what you focus on, expands. So, if you focus on the hurt and disappointments, that is what you will get more of. If you focus on that which makes you feel good, feeling good is what will expand.
Disappointments are stepping stones that get put in your path to help you propel to the next level. You just have to allow yourself to break free from the sinking ship of negative thought and resurface with the power of positive thought. With that, you’ll be able to turn your “negative feeling” state into a state of feeling AMAZING increasingly more and more with each new day.
Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it –
So, remember to seek opportunity for growth in every negative circumstance and learn to control your thoughts, because if you don’t, your thoughts are going to control you.
This week make strides toward consciously redirecting a negative feeling thought immediately toward something that will instantly change your state to feeling good. Think about something that makes you smile BIG, it could be a person, place or a thing; go to your “happy place”; then, watch how quickly things will begin to turn around for you.
