All the ‘what ifs’ we state are only holding us back.
“What if that really was the opportunity of a life time and I just ignored it?”
And even worse when that particular opportunity worked very well for someone else and the get really rich.
We work ourselves up to the extent that sometimes people even feel like they don’t want to live anymore.
But let me tell you something. All the success you see other people having around you are clues and signs of your own success and if you could celebrate with them you would have your own in no time!
Jealousy or envy only keeps you away from what you want and dream of, so let it go.
Let go of self pity and stop thinking that good things only happens to others, or that ‘your boat has sailed’.
If you can be totally honest with yourself and examine exactly why you did turn that “once in a life time opportunity” down and find that you did it because it didn’t feel right to you, then you can be absolutely sure that it wasn’t right for you.
You have to trust that, and then look for other opportunities instead of beating yourself up.
If you find that you said no to it because you were afraid of the process, afraid because you didn’t know how to do it, how to proceed, or even how to afford it, then you have to work on your trust in yourself and open your eyes to other opportunities and be more bold in the future, because they are there for you, always.
Either way, stop beating yourself up for the choice you have made in the past!
When the next opportunity is in sight, dare to step out of your comfort zone and just seize it.
Sometimes something is not right for us at one time, and then later on it will be.
Sometimes we jump into things without thinking only to find out later that it was completely wrong for us.
Either way, it was all right for us at that particular moment in time, and there is a lesson to be learned.
Maybe we needed that jump just so we could learn to check with our inner being more often in the future.
Time is always right for us, even when we think it was wrong. We all have had times in our lives when we have done something and years later we cringe by the thought of us doing that.
But back then we did the best we could, with the self knowledge we had, just like we do today.
Hopefully we know better today, and make better choices for ourselves. We will always evolve and what we think today will be very different of how and what we think about in ten years from now.
However we think about it, it was the right thing for us at that time in our life, even if we think it would be wrong today.
Just don’t linger in the past, and get back into this moment and make a new choice now, and now, and now.
‘What if’ we always did that instead..?
