If you’re facing something difficult today, I want to share a great tool that has really helped me get out of that energetically draining head space that can come up when unexpected curveballs come my way.
1: Write down the challenge you’re facing, or situation you’re in in detail.
Feel free to really express how it’s making you feel and what fears it’s bringing up.
2: Think of a friend, family member or someone you know who could potentially have this same struggle or situation.
Write their name down.
3: Now you’re going to mentally assign this situation to them.
Imagine what they have just told you about it.
You are an empathetic, caring person and you have some words of kindness, wisdom and hope for them.
4: WRITE DOWN YOUR ADVICE TO THEM.
5: Listen to and believe this advice you just gave them.
It’s FOR YOU, from one of the best parts OF you. ❤️
It’s hard to access our best self that can see clearly into the heart of things when we’re clouded by fear and strong emotions.
And why we get clouded is because we care so much. That’s a great thing.
That’s why we need tools like this to help us access the greatness within.
I use it all the time. I see a lot of opportunities in the struggles I’ve faced.
On the one hand, there’s temptation to complain, to blame, to lash out, to shut down – but there’s also the invitation to stretch, to seek more knowledge, to reach for support, to deepen our compassion and to take responsibility for our choices and ultimately, our destiny.
Save and share this 5-step activity and see if it doesn’t come in handy when you’re struggling to find the gold in a difficult situation – it’s helped me get out of my own way so much and keep moving forward and I just had to share it with you ❤️❤️
