How To Deal With Disappointment


We have all faced disappointment.

It's a part of life.

The deal falling through.

Not getting the job you wanted.

The relationship that didn't work out.

It can be hard to want something so much, and have it not work out.

It's easy to let the disappointment discourage you and make you lose hope.

Trust that when things don't go the way that you had wanted, there is something better seeking to happen in your life. You might not be able to see that right now. But it will become clear. Often what ends up happening ends up better than you could have planned!

So get curious and stay open. 

Many times in my life it was only in retrospect that I was able to be grateful and to realize that NOT getting what I thought I wanted was in fact the grace of the universe!

When you feel disappointment it's the opportunity to surrender. Surrender your expectation and attachments and let go of what you thought should have happened.

When you Surrender your attachment to the outcome, you bring yourself into the flow. 

When you face setbacks along the way to your goal, you can wallow in the disappointment or focus on learning the lessons.

Consider that life is giving you the opportunity to let go of what is no longer in alignment with your highest most authentic self.

When things seem to fall apart, it's tempting to hold on to the old and familiar for a sense of safety. Instead, let go and see what is truly seeking to emerge.

During challenging times it's easy to get disheartened and lose hope. Instead, keep the faith, stay true to your vision.

So when faced with challenges, ask yourself:

What's the gift of this challenging time?

What are the lessons that my soul is seeking to experience?

In the future what will I look back and say was great about this moment?

Life is an amazing opportunity to grow and evolve. This is why we are born. Every experience is an invitation to become more of who you truly are and evolve as a soul.

So don't let disappointment stop you, remember that challenging situations are like the gymnasium for your soul’s growth.

You are ready.
