Hey Sensational Soul!
When was the last time you made a “mistake” and forgave yourself? I’ll take a few minutes while you find it within your mental files…
Seriously, though! Do you believe that a “mistake” is ACTUALLY a mistake? What if what you think is a “mistake” is actually a re-direction TOWARDS your soul’s highest happiness?
Your Dream Career
For example: you killed it at the dream-job interview. You said the right things, you smiled, they smiled back, your pauses were perfectly timed, and your handshake was confident (but not too aggressive). You KNOW you are getting this job! Cut to 2 days later and they send you an email telling you that they have gone a different direction. You are confused, disappointed, and want to know why. What is the first thing you think?
If you answered something to the point of deflecting any flaws that you may contain, then you are on the right path! However, most people tend to blame themselves and feel they (themselves) are the reason for why they didn’t get the job. They feel they have made a mistake somewhere in the process.
What’s Meant To Be Will Always Find A Way
But what if you were not MEANT for this job because something SO MUCH BETTER is coming FOR you? What if you didn’t get this “dream” job because on the surface you can’t always REALLY see and understand how this job was not what your soul truly desired? What if the people who work at your “dream” job are actually horrible people to work with? What if they start you out with reasonable hours, but they had plans to squeeze out 10+ MORE hours per week out of you at some point? What if the job sounded appealing, but you got it and once you started working you were not doing what you thought you would be doing? And so what if the money at this “dream” job was SO GREAT, is it really something to focus on for why you aren’t “good enough” to get the job?
My point is: I know several people who thought their “dream” job was PERFECT for them; however, they didn’t get this job. They were so bummed and thought they did something wrong. I coached them and told them to SHIFT their mindset and approach it from a different angle in that the Universe KNOWS what your soul truly desires because you already did the asking for it.
Taking The Leap Of Faith
These same people who were bummed about being passed for this “dream” job decided to focus on the understanding that something even BETTER was meant for them. They relaxed, they trusted, they believed, and they surrendered into the “timing” and the “how” of their dream job. Of course, these people are NOW working in their ACTUAL dream jobs! Not only do they love what they are doing, they love their hours, their commute, the people they work around, AND the money is even MORE than what they were sulking about from their “dream” job they didn’t receive! How exciting is this!?
So the next time you are upset about something that didn’t work out and you feel like you made a “mistake”, think about it this way:
The Universe ALWAYS has your back! The Universe IS either manifesting exactly what you want; or, something even BETTER IS coming FOR you! Relax, trust, and understand that the Universe works behind the scenes to rearrange things that are meant FOR you and your soul’s highest happiness. YES!
So practice, practice, practice on your Mastering Your Mindset journaling every single day, and focus on feeling GOOD each day while your REAL dream is finishing cooking. Stay positive, keep going, and have FUN in life. Your order is on its way TO YOU. Things aren’t always as great as they seem on the surface. Don’t let first impressions fool you.
There is never a real mistake, everything happens for your soul’s highest happiness. You’ve got this.
