Maybe now is not the right time.
One of my amazing clients sent me an email this morning and I wanted to share it with you (with her permission of course), read to the end and find out why.
*I want to preface this by saying that in my last meeting with my client we had talked about using daily positive affirmations and, by using the present tense, imagine that she already had the job and was already working and doing the job she had applied for*
“Yesterday afternoon my co-ordinator at work approached me and we had a conversation about the contract I applied for. I mentioned it to you at our meeting last week. Despite my positive vibes I sent out to the universe I am not being considered for the position.
I was very upset last night. I cried, alot! Not as much because I didn’t get the position, but from other things she said to me during that conversation.
It was very frustrating and I spent most of the night upset, feeling like I was ‘good enough’ last year for that same position, but no longer ‘good enough’ this year. I am sharing this with you this morning because I woke up instantly thinking about this news and beginning to feel negative again”.
(BUT then this happened) “I layed in bed and literally started talking to myself and putting a positive spin on this situation.
I made a cup of tea and sent an email to ‘my’ Co-ordinator at ‘the’ main office this morning and I also made the decision to start practicing for myself, and I will set up a meeting with my co-ordinator to discuss my goals with her and make a plan together (as she suggested yesterday during our conversation).
I am not going to let this set me back and have a pity party, I am going to learn and grow from it! I am reminded that I am still learning.
This morning as I wrote in my journal one of things I am grateful for is my job and the opportunity it provides, and one of my affirmations this morning is that I play a big role in my career success.
I just wanted to share this with you because without ‘the’ daily journal this morning ‘asking’ me to be positive, some of the accomplishments I’ve recently made over the last few months, and the confidence it brings me, very likely would have ruined this gorgeous day with negativity over a situation I cannot control.
I should add that I am also grateful for having met you at the *** event, that led me to this journey of health and healing. Thank you! I hope you have a wonderful day!” J
