I believe we can overcome any setback. To do so we must see them with fresh eyes. What if setbacks were just a change in direction towards a path you are supposed to walk down? If we were flexible enough to get out of our comfort zone maybe we could embrace this perfect design of life? Setbacks can feel terrible as they involve change and uncertainty, and when we are stressed we are thrown into primitive reactions to protect ourselves. We will focus on what we don't want to happen and can detach from our hearts, losing connection, as a result and we feel flat inside. The loss of motivation and lack of action triggers off more fear and uncertainty and so the spiral begins.
It’s amazing what happens inside of you when you are faced with no choice but to succeed.
5 years after my MS diagnosis, in 2009 at 29 my worst fears were realised. I was forced to completely stop and reset. A big MS attack paralysed the entire left side of my body and I lost the ability to walk. The disease had progressed, and my body was mirroring how emotionally paralysed I felt. If you draw a line down the middle of my face down to my pelvis, the whole left side of my body stopped working completely over a slow, cruel ten days.
Setbacks are designed to move you, you are supposed to feel uncomfortable.
We get so used to living in our comfort zone. The brain likes the familiar, it is always looking for the safest way to protect you. Is it familiar for you to feel inspired, alive and motivated to shine? It has it become familiar to be in fear, lacking willpower and feeling just stuck ?
Have you ever noticed that just wishing for something to happen, doesn’t mean that it will.
Have you also noticed, that sometimes hard work can make things happen, but other times you can be working your butt off and things are not effortless for you?
That is because what you believe matters. I have noticed that when my ideas align with what I believe can be possible to make things happen for myself. The most profound discovery about this was when I am aligned in this way, I am also maximising repair in the body.
