The month of April was challenging for me.
It’s been a lot of exploring new frontiers and doing new things.
We also re-launched the eCourse and are now having a 30 Day #HeartMindMoney Challenge.
We’re on Day 9 of the challenge and we’ve just resolved some of the major tech issues, which luckily most of the students were oblivious to because they were all on the back end.
There were times, in the last weeks when it seemed as though nothing was going to come together.
There were so many days when I'd just sit in meditation and wonder why I didn’t study computer science.
In hindsight these past weeks have been amazing because I’ve had to practice everything I teach and just deal.
What I learned from watching things fall apart was incredible:
1. The people you surround yourself with is key
A huge part of why I was able to deal is because of the people I surround myself with.
They do such incredible things that being around them inspires me to keep going and not just throw it all in.
Every success guru will tell you that you're the average of the people you surround yourself with.
Surround yourself with awesome people who are going after their dreams and are willing to support you when you feel yourself slipping.
2. Energy is currency and people can use your energy to power themselves
Elevate your vibration to such a point even when someone is plugging into it, they can't drain you.
There was a day when things were so bad, that I called a friend and asked to plug into her vibration to elevate mine.
And I can’t tell you how absolutely real that experience was because I walked away feeling high and more focused, which helped me with work stuff.
This experience helped me see that in any moment in our lives, we're either giving energy or taking energy and people are doing the same with us.
Keeping our vibration high, makes it difficult for the takers to suck us dry and leave us depleted.
I also learned that it’s not about the amount of time we put into things. It’s about the energy we bring to the task at hand; that’s what creates the breakthroughs and the shifts.
3. Find your happy place and go there when you need to recharge
What's your happy place?
It doesn't have to be a physical space, it can be in your mind or a simple feeling that you get.
Going to this space helps us clear our energy and increase our vibration.
4. Release all stories and judgements about how things should unfold
I’m proud to say I observed things fall apart - the eCourse crashed the day before the challenge and I had load shedding and yet I didn't get emotional because my internal chatter was silent.
A few years ago, I'd have labelled all these events as bad and created a story about being a failure and God/ Source punishing me.
Eventually all these stories would've gotten me depressed and made it impossible for me to get any work done.
And then I’d have given up.
But this time, that DIDN'T happen.
I ditched all my concepts of how things should unfold.
I had no stories about what this situation meant, I was able to remain calm and just work on finding solutions.
5. Sometimes you will have to surrender to the process instead of fighting and reacting
I can truly say, I’ve learned a lot about surrendering to the process.
Most of us seem to think that surrendering is giving up and it’s not. It’s simply accepting what life is giving you in this moment.
The minute we start accepting what is, we can start choosing ways to deal with the situation which empowers us.
6. Trust your journey
I can’t stress how incredibly important this is. There’s no rule book that says that things should evolve in a particular way.
Your journey is unique to you, which means the way life unfolds and your dreams manifest, will be totally unique for you.
So honour the journey, trust and love life, especially when things are going wrong.
How you deal when things are going wrong?
