Knowing what you want takes you halfway to attaining or achieving it. That's not intended to sound like something from a positive thinking seminar. Hopefully, you're starting to see how recent setbacks narrowed down your options. That's because what's unnecessary has been removed. There's a much bigger plan unfolding. Now, you finally could finally receive the insights you need.
We've all been in situations where we receive what somebody believes to be unwelcome news. But we have to keep a straight face and not reveal that we're delighted that whatever hasn't happened, hasn't happened! If you experience something similar, you can trust what was supposed to be bad news is good news. What occurs could also make a particular option or way forward crystal clear.
Accept that there's still much yet to discover in a particular area, and that time needs to be allowed to work some magic on your behalf. Don't risk drawing a conclusion prematurely. Progress might be slow or involve twists and turns you might believe you could do without. But your instincts have helped you come this far. You want to see them proved correct, don't you?
'Oh, I wasn't aware of that.' Those words are often said in a way that hints of essential information undisclosed or withheld. But you can prepare to see how you're put in an advantageous position by becoming privy to information coming to light now. It's a case of better late than never. But you can believe something in your world is about to become better for it.
There are limits to how long you can continue to turn a blind eye to a particular matter. Doing so may have helped you feel comfortable or reassured on one level recently. There appears to be one glaring issue that could emerge like a Jack-in-the-Box if it isn't taken seriously. But could this lead to a discovery you may not have made otherwise? There's only one way to find out.
Technology may have made our lives easier in many ways. But it has also caused many people to reshuffle priorities. Comfort zones have become deeper. Taking paths of least resistance more frequently has reduced our 'get up and go' and 'make things happen' qualities. It might be helpful to accept - and address - what you've done for the sake of a more comfortable life. It's not too late to break an unhelpful routine.
It's not uncommon for many contracts to have a 'cooling off' period and clause that allows us to cancel whatever-it-is without penalties incurred. If information emerges that we didn't have previously, then sometimes, changing our mind is wise. Try to feel the same way about whatever change of heart you experience now. Don't put it down to fickleness. You could be grateful for it.
If you can tell yourself that a certain problem doesn't exist, that's not the same as sticking your head in the sand. You're not experiencing self-denial by making an honest assessment of what doesn't need focus or attention it demands. You can give it plenty of both if you wish. Or you can choose to walk away from it. The sky insists there are more benefits to doing the latter now.
If somebody held you back from doing something you might regret, you'd probably feel grateful for them doing so. But, on the flip side, you could take umbrage at the fact that they invade your personal space by restricting you. You could believe you're your own boss and will make your own decisions, thank you very much. But you could discover now or shortly how a recently enforced restriction was a blessing in disguise!
As much as you might want to shout from the rooftops or draw attention to what deserves praise and recognition, you could sense the responses you receive will be deflating. There are often two reasons why anybody would discourage you. They're either afraid that you'll be successful, or they're scared to do whatever-it-is themselves. Consider if either or both apply.
Has somebody missed the point? Are they 'barking up' the wrong proverbial 'tree'? Or, even worse, are they setting themselves up for disappointment? These are questions that an unsupportive person would think or say to someone pursuing something enthusiastically. Although someone could be on the receiving end of condescending comments, positive input from you certainly won't go unnoticed or be unappreciated.
Sometimes, saying or hearing the words 'you won't know unless you try' isn't motivational. When they're followed by the words 'okay, here goes', that usually implies somebody's throwing caution to the wind or 'winging it.' But rather than focus on what you believe you might lose by taking a particular risk, focus instead on the serious gain on offer. It's real.
