A path may end or change, perhaps you out grew this path, allow this to be an opportunity for rebirth, renewal and empower yourself that you CAN embrace change.
Sometimes something will leave your life – a job, a client or a project that is ending. Trust that when this opportunity is leaving your life it is because it is time to create space and embrace change for a better opportunity.
Do you know what your unique interchange of success is? By this, I am referring to taking inventory of your life and reflecting on your authentic true core values, at what distance are you willing to go? How intense are you willing to push yourself? This is why it is important to understand your own language of success. Don’t compromise your life and relationships by trying to achieve rewards and external approval of success, achieve YOUR success.
We can measure our goals by a more holistic measurement of success. But when life brings on new challenges, situations and opportunities, it is helpful to recall and reflect back on your authentic life purpose, your true core values and goals you’ve created for yourself. Then, factor in how these new opportunities that are being presented to you fit into your authentic life. Consider what you will have to give up in order to be successful at this new opportunity. Perhaps you know you could be successful with this new opportunity, but this new opportunity would create imbalance in many other areas of you life. Knowing what your language of success is to you, can help guide you in choosing when to add a new opportunity or let it pass for now. Your language of success should be in alignment with your authentic life purpose and your true core values. If it is not, then you are most likely experiencing contrast, confusion or struggle in your life.
An opportunity may come up where you feel challenged. Perhaps you have been presented an opportunity, for a reason at this time in your life and you may feel a little unsure of which action to take. Opportunities will always be present. You can make the choice by reflecting on your authentic true core values. If the choice feels right, do it with your full passion. If the opportunity does not feel right at this time, be willing to let it go and know that a better opportunity is coming at a better time, just for you. Continue to have patience.
A path may end or change, perhaps you out grew this path, allow this to be an opportunity for rebirth, renewal and empower yourself that you CAN embrace change. Perhaps this new opportunity will allow you to step out of your comfort zone and explore new territory, stretch yourself and grow both professionally and personally. Be open to what unfolds and accept everything that comes to you as a gift, keep your eyes, heart and mind open and you will see that insight, growth and joy can be found in reflective moments. These reflective moments can offer you the right action to take.
It is not so much the change we fear, often more the anticipation that causes the fear and wondering what will change in our life when we make the change. Even positive changes we might want to make, a new goal, often something has to change in our life for us to succeed at our goal. Being aware of what will have to change can empower you to make the right choices and to have the courage to go for what you want.
A person must feel ready to make the change, at least a strong enough desire to want to make a change in their life. Even if there is still some fear, if courage is present this can help to over come any fear, when you are aware of what the fear is. Also, reflecting on the actual opportunity and if it blends and fits with your authentic true core values. As mentioned earlier, this may be the right opportunity but the timing doesn’t feel right within you. The interchange factor comes into play here. Consider if many other areas of your life would become unbalanced if you took on this new opportunity. How much intensity will you need to exert if you take on this new opportunity? Perhaps it may be the right opportunity but your young children need your full attention and energy at this time. Know that an even better opportunity will arise in the future, at a better time. Success is also knowing when to pass up an opportunity and when to seize the opportunity. Again, knowing your authentic life purpose and true core values is what keeps you in alignment with living a fulfilling life.
What it comes down to, is when you do decide this is the right opportunity and it is the right time, in what ways are you willing to adjust to the new changes, new challenges and new details that life introduces when accepting a new opportunity? It is not possible to know every single detail that will arise with the new level of success you are about to rise to or the new opportunity you are about to grasp, but being aware of the new celebrations and challenges can help prepare you and keep you feeling empowered.
Not all opportunities that will be presented to you will allow you to negotiate or tweak something about the opportunity, but by taking some time to reflect and look at all your options and how one of these options may fit into your life right now allows you to explore adding in a new value. Many times, you may have to pass up an opportunity because it is not the right time. On the other hand, the timing might be right, but not the right opportunity.
Your top priorities always come first, always your decision. If something doesn’t feel good to you, be willing to let it go. Right time, right place is your intuition, always trust yourself you are on your right path, at the right time in your life and keep believing, have faith, all will fall into place in its right time.
