Secondly, take some time to regroup. This simply
means that you need to take time to let your mind relax. It is akin to sleeping on a
problem. That is, when you set something in your mind that needs a solution, let
the subconscious mind work on it during your sleep time. You may have had this
experience before, so use it again.
Thirdly, reach out to trusted friends, or people who have had the experience
and success in a certain area that interests you, or one where you have been
struggling to succeed. One thing I've learned over the years is that people you
know are more than willing to help you but you first need to ask.
Beyond The Valley
There is one truth in life that may strike you as a bit odd. And, that truth is that
all people, no matter who they are, have periods in their life where obstacles,
problems, or setbacks are present. There isn't a successful person around who
hasn't been in a deep valley looking up wondering where the steps went to climb
The message is this: you haven't lost your ability. You are not doomed to stay
mired in the valley of failure, or problems, or obstacles. For every problem there
is a solution or an option. Some solutions, however, are beyond you - meaning,
you are not meant to go it alone. You are not in charge of where you go in life.
Trust Beyond Self
You know that you are never alone, but, you have
to put your trust in God.
For many of us, the greatest lesson to learn is that our
plans are not necessarily the plans of our Creator. Ask the One who knows. Seek
guidance and counsel. Once you learn this most valuable of all lessons in life,
your life unfolds the way it was intended, but not always the way you intended.
