How accepting the fact that sometimes life is not going to go your way and may be painful at times, will help you to overcome challenges and accept difficult circumstances so you can stay focused on your dreams and goals, instead of letting it derail your progress.
In this video coaching newsletter I discuss an email from a viewer who found out about my work, started to apply it, and successfully attracted his first girlfriend. However, he did not continue to do the fundamentals that got him his girlfriend in the first place. The predictable result is that she dumped him in a very unkind way. Despite the fact that he had some success, he did not maintain it because he was not prepared, and she seemed to lack integrity and honesty. He became fearful of losing her, and then pretty much chased her away.
It was good practice, but he got too emotionally involved too quickly, to see that she was a little bit of a fruit-loop, and therefore not good girlfriend material. He’s unsure of what he should focus on now, since he’s having a hard time accepting reality and taking action to achieve his goals. I tell him how to get back on track.
“Problems are a sign of life. They are a sign that you still have work to do in this life. That there is more you can become, more you can give and more you can do to make a positive difference in the world, and make it a little better than you found it. Challenges and difficult circumstances are the engines through which we perfect ourselves and become all that we are capable of becoming. Problems do not last forever. Pain is temporary. Even the worst circumstances and setbacks can eventually be overcome. What would you do or begin if you knew you could not fail? If success was simply a mater of time, and taking relentless, directed and focused action towards what you want and want to create for your life? Success is not a straight line. It is a journey full of twists, turns, setbacks, wins, failures, false starts, etc., and the quickest way to ultimate success, is in ones’ willingness to change your approach, persevere, adapt, improvise, overcome and compensate for whatever obstacles life throws in your way.” ~ Coach Corey Wayne
