June 20, 2011 – Has an opportunity not panned out? Has a recent opportunity not turned out exactly as you had hoped? Is the excitement gone and has disappointment set in because it didn’t manifest as you thought that it would? Are you questioning your judgment or abilities as a result? Are you now doubting your direction or priorities? When things don't occur the way you had envisioned, it doesn't mean your vision is off, it just means there is more to be learned or a better opportunity is awaiting your discovery.
Take an MM&I Moment to view the opportunity from a perspective of gaining insight. What was unexpected that occurred? What have you learned from being exposed to this unanticipated turn of events? How will you prepare differently when a similar opportunity arises? Is there an opportunity you are not seeing that has arisen amidst the lost opportunity? If your passion around your desire is still strong, don't let this situation make you doubt your direction. Embrace the idea that something even better will result, because it always does when you allow your mind to explore and continuously nurture possibilities no matter the circumstances. Just because it wasn't as easy as you thought doesn't mean it isn’t exactly where you should be focusing.
