I know you are guilty of this just like I am. How many times have you blamed a misfortunate event or life situation on bad luck?
Not being able to find the right guy (bad luck of attracting the wrong ones!
Not being to lose weight (you had the bad luck to get the wrong genes!)
Not being able to get promoted at work because you never had the fortunate opportunity to show your excellent performance to the right people who make this decision.
Not being to take your business off the ground no matter how hard you try. Any effort you put in feels like it’s lost in the abyss!!
I could go on and on about this and keep adding to the list.
And I’m sure you feel the same way.
Sadly when we fall into that rabbit hole, we only keep going deeper and deeper…not into wonderland, but in “I wonder how the f*ck did I get here!”
These situations make you feel terrible and some even devastate you when they occur.
BUT are they truly as we bad as we believe them to be?
In hindsight did some of these situations already lead to a brighter outcome?
And the bigger question to ask is if this outcome would have been different if the bad luck hadn’t occurred?
Right guy: Meeting all the wrong guys allowed you to appreciate and immediately recognize when you finally met the right one.
Weightloss: You made new friends at a weight watchers meeting and this eventually blossomed into a deep friendship.
Job: Being overlooked for promotions finally pushed you to quit the soul sucking work environment and find a new one. Here your work experience was recognized and you even got a fantastic raise in your salary.
Business: Not seeing any progress with your business pushed you to get out of your comfort zone and helped you to increased your confidence. This allowed you to feel more at ease with promoting your business which brought you new opportunities.
Isn't it interesting to see how a situation that you thought was so terrible turned out to be something else…
