Have you ever been riding high on wave of creative energy and inspiration where everything seems possible and you feel slightly invincible and you’re so excited you can hardly stand being in your own skin?
And then… something happens.
And suddenly, you’re tossed off of your all-systems-go wave of creative bliss and, splat! You’re face down in a ditch of doubt, discouragement, and mild despair.
“What the heck happened?” you wonder. “I was flying so high, feeling so great, and now… I’m sitting here weeping in the weeds!”
Not to worry. This video will get you riding high once again!
Wanna read instead of watch?
Okay. Here’s the transcript of the video:
Hey there, it’s Nancy Tierney from Firecracker Communications and whoa… I see you.
You are on fire. You’re zooming straight ahead. All the lights are green. You’ve got the pedal to the metal. You’re moving at the speed of light and it feels amazing.
Then suddenly, something happens. You get an email, someone ignores you, your event doesn’t go as planned. You get an unexpected bill and then..you’re rolled over, stuck in the mud. Your momentum is stalled. Your mojo’s gone missing and you’re just wondering, what the heck happened?
Hey, it’s okay. This kind of derailment happens. In fact, it’s to be expected when you’re really pushing your own edge and you’re trying to break through your own sound barrier.
It’s not a problem and it’s not a big hairy deal unless you make it a big hairy deal. You can get your groove back and here’s how.
First, fully embrace and accept what’s happened and let yourself love the situation as it is. So you got sidelined, so your client didn’t pay you, so you flubbed up your webinar, so your tax bill is 10 times higher than you thought it would be. Okay. Okay. Just let that be so and see if you can fully accept and be at peace with what is.
Don’t argue with it. Don’t make it wrong. Don’t blame yourself. Don’t blame somebody else. Don’t go bad on yourself by thinking, “If I had my shit together, this never would’ve happened”. That’s actually a lie.
The truth is the path to anything is not a straight upward line. The path to your expansion, your evolution, to your success, to your enlightenment is more of a jig-jaggety line. It’s more curvaceous, unpredictable and mysterious.
You’re going to have ups and downs, highs and lows, and wides and thins. It’s just the way it goes.
So acknowledge that this too is perfect. This too is leading you. This too is an invitation to more of what you want.
Then once you have fully accepted what is, get refocused. Refocus on what it is you do want and get excited about it.
And this next step is really important. Whatever it is you want, whatever it is that you’re focused on, that’s got you excited again, let yourself have that. Let yourself have it in this red hot minute. Let it be the truth of your reality right now. Experience it as a done deal. This is just what is.
Because the truth is, whatever you want is already yours.
Then ask yourself, what am I inspired to do right now? Is there one little tiny thing I could do that would allow me to move even closer to what it is that I want? That would allow me to be in full receptivity and celebration of what it is I’m after?
Whatever comes to you, if it feels right, do it.
Now, if the first thought that comes to you is, “Hmmm… I feel like drinking a bottle of wine, binge watching something on Netflix and going to bed early…” okay. You can say yes to that. But you might want to consider if there’s something else you could do that would make you feel more realigned and on your way. Something that would make you feel full as opposed to feel numb.
There you go. Those are the steps you can use anytime you need to get realigned. Anytime you’ve been thrown off, find yourself in a ditch at the side of the road when just a minute ago you were flying high. Just use those steps and they’ll really help you just get back in your groove and get moving full steam ahead again.
