How To Build A Great Nation
Happy Labor Day! A couple of years ago I realized I didn’t even know the history of Labor Day. Obviously, it had to do with workers in some way. But […]
Consider this…those days that “take a turn for the worse” actually set you up for something so much greater. Those curve-balls, disappointments, arguments and mistakes provide a PERFECT setup for breakthrough!
Have you ever had “one of those days” that started out great, but by mid-morning, you just feel like going back to bed? (Or maybe a day that started out that way…) You know, “those” days when you feel like everything that could go wrong, has gone wrong? There’s drama in the family. You and your spouse can’t seem to agree on anything, and your kids are whining and complaining and just will not obey.
Maybe you’ve got work deadlines coming up and your boss demands more than you think you can get done. Maybe you bombed a potential client presentation. Maybe you just feel like you’ve been a few steps behind all day. You’re surrounded by negativity and your emotions run wild.
I’ve had those days. We ALL have. You may be having one today. But I want to make sure you know how to handle these days, because a breakthrough could be waiting on the other side of your “bad day.”
Think about it – have you ever been having one of those days, and come to an appointment or a task that had to get done, but you’re just “not feeling it” and just want to back out and say, “Nope, not happening!” But how many times has this stopped you from doing something with the potential to produce massive results, whether in your business, at work or in your family?
Because of your reaction to the bad things popping up on your otherwise-good day, you’ve let nonsense things get you off track. Because of your emotions and the small stuff chipping away at you throughout the day, you may want to pull out of an activity or task you really need to do.
You’ve got to eliminate all the nonsense stealing your focus. And emotions are one of those things.
We don’t often think about the effect emotions have in our lives. Instead, we just take them as they come. We let the stress, frustration and anger throw our emotions all out-of-whack, and soon enough, we’re “having a bad day.”
But consider this… those days that turn out to be not quite what you expected, actually set you up for something so much greater. Those disappointments, those arguments, those curve-balls, those mistakes provide a perfect setup for breakthrough!
You have to remember, feelings and emotions often lie. You control THEM; they do not control YOU!
When you choose to stop wasting your time on nonsense emotions, and stop reacting to the curveballs thrown your way, you set yourself up to solve the problem, instead of reacting to it. When you don’t get caught-up and tangled in fear, frustration or stress, and instead, focus on finding solutions, you will break through to a new level.
Some of my biggest breakthroughs have come after I pushed through these seemingly-horrible days, sucked it up and did the things I didn’t want to do. When I chose to focus on what’s going right, instead of what’s going wrong… when I chose to focus on what I can do, instead of what I can’t do… THOSE are the times I have gotten the biggest breakthroughs in my life!
So today, let me encourage you to push through! Don’t let those “bad things” knock you down and turn your good, productive day into a “bad day.” Focus on pushing past those things trying to hold you back. Focus on getting results.
So often, the times we decide to push through are the times when we grow the most. Those times refine us and really shape our character. But we cannot grow beyond those points, if we allow our emotions to determine our thoughts, words and actions.
I hope this helped you today and the next time you’re having “one of those days,” you will pull this out and be reminded today does not have to be a “bad day.” Today is setting you up for massive breakthrough in your business, career, relationships and personal life!
Please also go ahead and send this to your friends, family and coworkers today. You could help them experience the same kind of breakthrough. And let me know below about a breakthrough you had, as a result of a “bad day!”
