Do you believe that the falls you have and the failures you experience is setting you up for something GREAT??
Take a few minutes to think about the times in the past when your dream seemed to be stomped on or you were laid off or fired from or didn’t get a job or your dream person broke off your relationship or you got injured right before a big competition or audition or Mother Nature or something else got in the way of you getting to your Big Moment. Now, think about what happened as a result. I bet you felt lousy at first and maybe even for a while. You may have not done anything for a while, wallowing in your bruised pride or heartbreak.
Life is full of events that seem to disappoint, damage, and dent us.
We look back and we aren’t where we thought we’d be by now …
maybe financially, or in love, or in notoriety, maybe physically, or emotionally, or with a sense of purpose.
Maybe the dreams we had didn’t go as we planned or imagined.
Maybe that true love didn’t work out like we thought.
Maybe you don’t seem to have found your path.
BUT, from it one or both of two things happened, you learned from the experience – about yourself, about others, about life and/or something or someone better came into your life as a result. Read that again, Something or Someone BETTER came into your life as a result.
In September of 2009 I found out I was pregnant with my 3rd child. At the same time, my company had been experiencing some lay-offs from a major partner of ours going bankrupt. Most of my company was already whittled away. Unfortunately, I was the next and one of the last to be laid off. I had a nice severance package, but pregnant and without work was going to be stressful in my house. It seemed like I was dealt a pretty tough hand. I took a bit of contract work here and there which helped and gave me the opportunity to be at home with my newborn son and my 2 older kids who were 4 and 6 at the time. When it was time to get back into the work force, I decided I would ask for a lot greater pay than I had last been making. It paid off … so much so … so as not to lose me, the company offered me MORE than they had advertised and initially said was their pay for the position I interviewed for. You see, had I stayed at the previous company, it would have taken me YEARS to raise up to what I received from the new company. From the one set back came something much Greater – I got to spend time with my children THEN got a 32% raise! A year later, I got an ADDITIONAL 25% raise. I was earning over 50% MORE because I was laid off .. now THAT is some comeback!
And maybe you won’t get that big a raise from one job to the next, but you may go from a place of dread to a place of joy. Maybe you weren’t very happy where you were but stayed because it was comfortable. Then, when you were FORCED to move elsewhere, you found you could look for what you truly wanted.
You see, the Universe, your God, whomever or whatever you believe, has greater plans for you that you can’t even imagine. The BIGGER Picture is so much bigger than you could even possible concoct. ALL of us are here, not only to become Great but to become Great to help others. You may not be able to see the entire path in front of you but it’s there and ready for you to walk it.
It’s never TOO late, You’re never TOO far gone or Too Old or Too young or too anything to Comeback from a fall or a failure or set back to COMEBACK to something better. Things and people are removed from our lives to make room for something or someone Bigger. Are YOU making room? Don’t let your past falls keep you down or take up space in your life.
