What to do when life slaps you in the face and you suffer a temporary defeat?
One of my mastermind clients asked me this question this week. She shared that life was rocking and she was receiving a bunch of wins and then- BAM- to use her words “life bitch slapped her” in the face.
It happens to all of us.
We are defined by how many times we get BACK up after life takes us down, that is for sure.
First off, you need to examine your patterns. Things happen in cycles and seasons. Have you been here before?
After a big win, what do you do?
Do you sabotage by blowing all of your money?
Do you shrink in fear feeling that now that you have won now it will all be taken away from you?
Are you in fear about “when will the other shoe drop?”
You need to examine with a detailed eye your patterns and your beliefs about winning. This will help you STOP the pattern and make a conscious decision to not repeat the same cycle when it comes around again.
I am assuming that you are ruthless about writing your life into existence, visioning, setting intentions, and goals and gratitude. These are success habits that must be ritualized. In times of temporary defeat you must lean deeper into your success habits and be diligent and catch your fears, doubts, anxieties, and worries like a hawk catching it’s prey, and then spit them out!
When life kicks you down, here are a few key things to remember:
1) When one door closes, another door opens
2) Rejections are God’s protections
3) Something BETTER is about to happen
4) It’s not personal
5) You are loved
6) Get back up, dust yourself off, readjust your crown, and get back into action
