Happy New Year my life junkies! I pray for peace and blessings to be bestowed upon each of you this year and years to come.
KEYS101: Are we ready for 2016?
How many times have you thought you were ready for something, but you really weren’t? Oh wait, maybe that’s just me. Often times we think we are ready for that job, the business, the relationship, the new purchase, and the list goes on. When that very thing we thought we were ready for doesn’t pan out, we get discouraged, we, at times, lose hope.
Sometimes we don’t get what’s for us because we are still going through the “process”. Can you imagine getting what’s for you at the wrong time? For example, you want to start a business, well there are certain skills and knowledge you need to start that business. You have to experience highs and lows in your career, difficult bosses, difficult co-workers, various challenges, etc. Why? Because those experiences “mold” you into the business owner you are supposed to be.
You want that financial breakthrough, but it just doesn’t seem to be coming as quickly as you want. Perhaps the reason is because if you got that financial breakthrough, you wouldn’t handle it properly. We see it all the time with people who win the lottery and a year or so later, they are broke, or an athlete who makes millions, and ends up in bankruptcy. They weren’t really ready for it. When you are ready for it, it won’t be a “fleeting” thing, it will be a “lasting” thing.
Okay, here’s another example. You may be someone who has had several relationships, perhaps even a marriage, that didn’t work out or maybe you haven’t experienced many relationships, but you are ready to meet that person you can spend the rest of your life with. You think you are ready, but in fact, you aren’t. Those other relationships help you develop, help you grow, help you better understand you, help you better understand relationships, and when you have gotten what you were supposed to have gotten (in other words, learned what you were supposed to have learned), it will come. There are a lot of people in relationships carrying around unresolved issues, past hurts, pains, resentment, bitterness, confusion, and even a lack of self-love. Those things will destroy a relationship. So although you think you’re ready, you’re not. Timing is everything. When you’re really ready for it, it will come. Learn to appreciate the process.
