Have you ever been there?

Life is going along great. You are working on yourself, your business or another area of your life and to be honest, things are getting better…

That was until…

You took the advice of someone who either had no idea what they were talking about, or they had an ulterior motive.

You know that “guru” or “friend” that seems to know ALL the answers.

Let’s take the “guru” for example…

They are so confident in what they are saying and the way they are saying it that well they must know what they are talking about.

They back it up with numbers and social proof to show you that they know their stuff and you SHOULD listen to them.

They have all these people saying how wonderful they are and well you think to yourself…

“I want to have and do what they do.”

So you dive right in. Invest money and time into learning from them. You put your hopes and dreams on the line only to find out that they don’t really understand you or mainly they were really good at selling but pretty crap at delivering what they promised.

Or there is the “friend” or “loved one”…

You know the person who is talking you out of your dreams “for your own good.”

They see your progress, and they just want to help you because they are “concerned.”

So you take on their advice, and the doubts start creeping in…

You second guess what you are doing…

You’re wondering why you are doing this…

All these fears show up and what once was exciting and fun, is now life sucking.

Ok ok…

This post is starting to be super negative, but I promise there is a point to it all…

All these people are sent for a reason…

Honestly, they are…

I have been there many many times….

I have been on the right track doing things that made massive changes in my life for the better only to listen to the wrong person.

I have been crippled but doubt and fear.

I have been stuck due to having other people’s insecurities projected onto me.

However, rather than sit and throw blame, I realized that I had to look within for the reason WHY I took it all to heart.

You see, when you place blame onto others, you not only give away your power but you take on THEIR issues as well.

What do I mean?

You have POWER when you are in control…

You are in CONTROL when you can change the situation…

You can CHANGE the situation by looking at what you can do…

You can DO it all once you realize that you are in the driver’s seat no matter what.

“But how can I change anything when it is them that needs to change? They are doing this to me.”

Well, that is my point…

If you wait for someone to change to make things better, you are going to be waiting a long time. You have no control over anyone else. You cannot change anyone’s behavior and when it comes down to it, would it be fair to?

Think about it…

Think about it...

Would you want someone to change you everytime they were unhappy with how you acted?

How unhappy would you be?

But…

Guess what?!

You do have to power to change something…

That is…

YOU!

This is where you take all your power back…

While you can’t change what people say or do, you can change how you react to it. That is what you have control over.

Someone tells you that you “should” do this or that…

You DECIDED for yourself what is right for you.

You trusted someone who turned out to be a big fake…

You REFLECT on why you trusted this person, forgive yourself and learn the lesson you were being taught. Then you move forward with a new understanding.

You stopped taking action because it was making someone else insecure…

You address the matter with kindness and go and KICK ASS because you are worth it even if it makes others around you feel bad. Unfortunately, that is their issues and not yours to solve.

Each person that turns our world upside down or brings some sort of conflict is there to teach us something about ourselves.

It may not be pleasant, and we wish there were a more natural way, bu

t at the end of the day, we can make the most if it or we can be doomed to repeat the same lesson over and over again until we finally learn it.

What lesson do I need to learn for this?

Next time you are faced with a situation where you find yourself second guessing what you are doing or kicking yourself for not trusting your intuition…

STOP and ASK…

What lesson do I need to learn for this?

That is where the REAL POWER is!
