Take a quick assessment of your life situation.
- Have you been struggling with starting a business?
- Have your relationships felt strained?
- Have your finances suffered?
Difficult situations are teachable moments, where we have the potential to grow and experience great shifts.
To find the blessing in a difficult interaction, ask yourself what it’s mirroring.
When I was in jobs where I’d was being micromanaged, undermined and criticized on a regular basis, I was even put through an intensive 8-week ‘improvement plan’. My strengths were misunderstood and my managers had no idea how to inspire and empower.
When I decided to bring awareness to the lesson/blessing, I realized that this situation was a mirror back to me; I was being too hard on myself, expecting perfection, out of a lack of self-compassion, so I attracted insecure micromanagers.
From this place of awareness, I was able to shift my energy into self-worth and self-compassion. And in a matter of weeks, my supervisors’ and coworkers’ demeanor and behavior changed to reflect my new reality.
Look for the lesson; what is your craptastic situation mirroring to you?
