Last post I discussed how I like to paint myself in a corner for higher achievements and productivity. Setting a high bar for yourself leads you to greater things. But what happens when things don’t work as intended? What happens when you really muck things up?
And we all sometimes muck things up…
And I don’t just mean missed deadlines or a failed project. I’m talking about when your business goes bankrupt, you relapse on an addiction, or hurt someone you love. What do you do then?
People sometimes think because I teach prosperity I must have it all together. Now that’s funny.
Reminds me of a fascinating question on this blog a few weeks back. Someone asked how a spiritual leader they had been following could develop cancer. Someone else picked up the discussion and related seeing a well-known self-development speaker who also has cancer and was overweight.
Well that’s the problem with humans. They’re human. But that’s also their greatest gift. I can tell you personally I have learned a lot more from my failures than I have from my successes. That’s probably true for you as well. Challenge, adversity, and even failure can lead to greater transformation.
Even with all that magic, Harry Potter still needs eyeglasses!
When I fall short of what I am capable of, I take faith in Romans 8:28 – “All things work together for those who love God.” I remember that it’s all God and it’s all good.
You don’t have to understand it all completely. Maybe none of us really do. But you can have faith in the knowledge that every chapter of your life is part of your unfolding. It’s part of your process of evolvement, growing and learning; part of becoming the person you are meant to be. And that is the journey of being a human.
