3 questions I ask when things don’t go as I expect

  • What am I not seeing?

  • What can I learn here?

  • What specific outcome am I attached to that I can let go of and create space for what wants to happen?

What am I not seeing?  What have I been blind to?

Is it something in the environment, is it something about customers or staff or competition?

 

What can I learn?  I believe that every time something does not go as I planned and hoped that there is a lesson it would be valuable for me to learn. Maybe a lesson about alignment with my purpose or values or intention.

 

What specific outcome am I attached to that I can let go of and create space for what wants to happen?  When we become attached to the way things should be we can block what is wanting to flow.  When we are attached, we are in essence saying that we know best.  Allowing that this may not be the case opens up many more possibilities.
In order to access the energy of the universe in support of our work, we need to learn to co-create.  This means letting go of how we think it 'should be' and allowing that there may be many paths to the future we want.  Allowing the possibility of experimenting and discovery.

Each of these questions suggests that we slow down and reflect before jumping into action.  When we have a problem or things are not going as we would want it is a common reaction to move quickly to solve it. Taking the time to reflect first might just ensure that when we do move into action we are better informed and less likely to create more confusion or error.  This takes practice.  In my experience, the results are worth the practice.
