I recently tried to publish another ebook on Amazon, called #BeTheChange. It was a calendar of health and wellness awareness days, months and weeks for 2017 and I even included hashtags for each entry. I spent many, many hours and days researching my topic and collecting my information and then formatting my document so it would look good for my readers. It ended up being over 100 pages.
But as it turned out, Amazon declined it and asked me to remove it because the content was readily available for free on the internet already.
All that hard work for nothing. I could have been devastated.
But I wasn’t. I didn’t even shed a tear and that’s saying a lot for me. I realized it’s not all a waste. I can still repurpose the information I collected and reformat it in a new way. It may even turn out to be better than an ebook on Amazon.
My point is, we all have problems and we all have disappointments. That’s part of life. But it’s what we do in response to the situations that come up that will make or break us. It’s all a matter of perspective.
So, if you have recently been disappointed by something or if you’ve tried and failed at something like I have, try to look at your situation from a different angle. Acknowledge what happened and then move on. Say to yourself, “so what, what’s next?”
And guess what, there’s a gemstone for that. If you’re interested in shifting your perspective on any issue, I recommend Howlite.
Howlite is a white stone that has black veins running through it.
When I tune into Howlite, I see fog and clouds and then I see the sun shining. It’s like when you’re at the airport and it’s a grey, overcast day and there’s a low ceiling and poor visibility. But once you get on the airplane and the plane takes off and you break through those clouds, all of a sudden you see the sun has been shining above the clouds all along.
The sun is always shining somewhere. And realizing that is a shift in perspective.
So, don’t let a disappointment that something didn’t turn out the way you wanted, to take you out of the game. It’s just an opportunity to try something else.
And that’s the beauty of coaching. You get to see things from different angles and that can make a big difference in how you move forward. If you’re interested in coaching, please contact me. I have some room for a few coaching clients and I’d love to work with you.
So, carry some Howlite to remind you to try to see something differently, because as the late Dr. Wayne Dyer said, “When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.”
