We are all here to live every situation you can imagine, good or bad; right or wrong; positive or negative. Why? So we can learn from the experience as part of the adventure of life. Murray Kibblewhite
CASE STUDY – WHAT TO DO AFTER LOSING. TRANSFORM!
The other day I had a meeting with an ex-client that lasted five hours! We had not seen each other for over twelve months so we had a lot to catch up.
My first impression of her was that she looked, sounded and acted with purpose and passion. She looked wonderful and gave the impression of vibrancy!
Why? That was the question I asked her because I knew of the difficulties she had faced over the past years. Some would expect the pain and disappointment she had suffered would leave her scared and bitter for the rest of her life.
She had gone through a traumatic custody battle with her ex-husband and had lost the right to be responsible for her 10-year-old daughter. As well, in the past twelve months, she had applied for a grant to help fund the start-up of her business. She had not been successful.
For many, these disappointments would be too hard to bear. But not my friend. She had moved on from the custody issue and had re-financed her home to gain funds for her business. She had transformed.
As well, she had leased out her home and downsized to rent a room that was financially advantageous to her.
We also discussed how we could work together importing items from her overseas contacts.
She was now ready to start on a major overseas trip and she was positive, committed and in control.
Every challenge or obstacle you face is a learning opportunity.
My friend learnt to move on, transform and re-organise her life and was now looking forward to her next adventure.
All life’s experiences are opportunities to learn. The challenge is to decide, what are the real lessons to be learnt?
