Things don’t always go as planned.⠀⠀

There’s always a shit ton more red tape then there needs to be.⠀⠀

Challenges always arise just when we’re sure we can’t take anything more.⠀⠀

As you think about these three statements, I want you to think back to the last time something went differently than expected, when shit got hard, when you were presented with a challenge….⠀⠀

Do you have that thought in your mind? ⠀

Here are some of my own reflection on things in 2019 that didn’t go as planned….⠀

1️⃣ I received rejections (aka NOs) to my ideas and pitches to speak at multiple events and conferences. ⠀

2️⃣ I spent a shit ton of time, energy and money developing a new holistic health program for women (that I thought was SO freaking awesome) but it was a flop. ⠀

3️⃣ I trained and prepped for a bodybuilding show to WIN and I placed 10th. ⠀

4️⃣ I met only 3 of my 5 personal and business goals for 2019.⠀

For me, the true gift of all of these so called “failures” is the growth and confidence I have built within myself. Each of these challenges presented a hardship that I was able to overcome, learn from and keep taking action….⠀

Now, I want you to answer these questions based on your thought;⠀

  1. What did I learn?⠀⠀
  2. How did I grow?⠀⠀
  3. How can I help someone else?⠀⠀

You see my point here is that while it may not seem like it at the time, life is all about experiences. Sometimes they are good in the moment and sometimes they are bad. But they are all experiences that shape us into the amazing, authentic humans that we are today.⠀⠀

When we choose to view our experiences through a lens of love, instead of fear, everything changes. We find more joy in everyday life, are able to give ourselves more grace and able to see others for who they truly are without judgement.⠀⠀

I encourage you this week to visit a few of those past “bad” experiences and ask yourself the questions above. I promise, you’ll uncover something new and special.

I’d love to know what you learned and grew from in 2019! Email me at carmen@carmenohling.com to share and discover how you can use these lessons to make 2020 your best year yet.

Wishing you a ton of light and love,
