As the southeastern United States makes preparations for the arrival and impact of hurricane Dorian, so can we make preparations for the storms we may encounter in our lives . I am speaking of the storms of conditions and circumstances that we encounter from time to time. Storms that seem to surround us and affect us mentally, emotionally, physically and even spiritually.
It could be in relationships, in our jobs, our families, the experiences of loss and grief or any other conditions that move us to worry, doubt and fear. They do feel like we’re standing right under those dark clouds that just don’t seem to be moving.
Knowing storms come and go in our lives, we can intentionally prepare for all the storms we experience by shifting our perspective.
Napoleon Hill said, “Every adversity, every failure, every heartache carries with it the seed of an equal or greater benefit.”
Knowing storms come and go, knowing we have moved through them before and survived, gives us the faith and strength needed to move through next one that comes. We carry wisdom gained as a benefit of each prior storm and use that wisdom to successfully navigate through the next one.
Listen in to today’s episode as I take this a little deeper.
Wishing you peace, calm and safety whether you’re dealing with stormy weather on the outside or inside…
