This week's question from my portal “The Neagle Code: Directions for Life” comes from someone who wishes to remain anonymous.
I recently had a car wreck. My vehicle was totaled, and I’ve been in serious pain.
Although I’m better now… I’ve had a crappy attitude because I’m in chronic pain.
How do I get my business jump-started, despite my poor attitude? I can’t afford coaching or things like that, because I had to replace my car. Can you offer any advice?
Great question. And I’m sorry you’ve had that trouble.
Here’s the thing… you had a setback in your life. We all have setbacks. And yours is starting to affect your thinking.
It can be very difficult and challenging to keep your attitude in a good place when you’re in pain.
I’m no stranger to pain. After I broke my back years ago when I got sucked through a dam, I was in pain for 30 years. (I’m just now figuring out how to get out of that.)
If I were you, I would find something about this setback to be deeply and profoundly grateful for.
This situation is asking you to pay attention to something. You have to figure out what that is, because it will totally change your life.
Moving forward, the mindset you have is your choice. You get to choose that, and nobody can take that away from you.
After you’ve expressed gratitude… ask yourself, “Why am I working? What do I really want to achieve? What do I want my life to be about?”
Really get a bigger vision for yourself. I think that’s important.
If we don’t have a vision for our life, then we don’t have much of anything… because we’re just showing up, being reactive to everything. Then it’s about survival. It’s about getting through one day to the next. (That can be really important when a person is in so much pain.) You’re just trying to get from one day to the next, because that’s what’s getting your attention the most.
Create a vision for your future. Bring that in close and intimate with yourself. Then create a plan to go after it with everything you’ve got.
The Law of Polarity states that everything has an opposite, and it is equal and opposite. The bigger the setback you have in your life, the bigger the opportunity is for you to move forward. That is an absolute law.
Most people don’t know that. Or they don’t take the time to find out what the opportunity is… because the setback causes so much pain and distress in their life. All they can focus on is how miserable they feel in the moment.
The way to break through this is to become grateful. Find anything to be grateful about.
Ask yourself, “What is the biggest gift in this, that can change my future?”
When the answer shows up, pay attention and move on immediately.
