Everything’s an Opportunity

OAt each stage in life, challenges arise. And each new challenge brings a new lesson. You learn it and then move on to your next challenge and your next lesson.

As we go through life, the lessons get more complex. It’s as though each time you learn one lesson, you “graduate” to the next level. At times, this process can feel like too much, even for Mother Theresa!

Before you throw in the towel, Stop, Breathe and Remember: Everything’s an Opportunity. Consider all the challenges you’ve already transcended and lessons you’ve already learned. They have prepared you perfectly for the challenge you now face. Breathe and Get Curious: if Everything’s an Opportunity, where might the Opportunity be in this seeming challenge.

We might think it would be easier if we could just learn all our lessons from a book. But experiencing the full range of emotions, from frustration to transcendence, and working through them anchors the learning much more deeply than mere academic exposure could ever do.

You are enough for whatever Opportunities the Universe offers you. There is no better preparation than your full life experience—lumps, bumps, lessons and all. Know that the Universe won’t give you anything you can’t handle, even if you wish at times, like Mother Theresa, that It didn’t have such a high opinion of you.

About djwlifecoach

As a retired board-certified coach, author and Reiki master teacher, I continue to share hope, possibilities and empowerment with the world. What's love got to do with minimizing stress and getting unstuck? Everything! My book, "Choose Your Energy: Change Your Life!" (Hay House/Balboa Press 2013) shares my story and the stories of 10 of my clients along with my signature Discovery Framework. During my 30 years as an organization transformation consultant, I served as a senior partner in four of the world's largest, most prestigious global professional services firms. In 2005, I took a five-year sabbatical to find healing and peace because non-stop work had taken its toll. My recovery from burnout, including a sustained 80-pound weight loss and freedom from 10 years of debilitating depression, led to finding my purpose sharing hope, possibilities and empowerment with the world. Through healing and self-exploration, I discovered that loving yourself unconditionally is the key to transforming your personal life, your work and the world. With attention and intention, I learned to live in alignment with love through a wealth of energy-shifting tools and techniques that help me reduce stress, anxiety and overwhelm by releasing limiting beliefs, emotions and habits. My books, blog and radio episodes help individuals and organizations harness the transformative energy of love to turn unexplored possibilities into fulfilling realities and step into their greatness. Learn more and access FREE resources at djwlifecoach.blog. For fun, I love singing, reading, sewing, knitting, golfing and movies. I live in Williamsburg, Virginia with my husband, Wilson, and the coaching cats who manage my life—SiddhaLee and Maisy Jane.
