Life’s Hard Knocks and Soft Spots

Nits pissed off in black and white

Hopefully, your life has had more soft spots than hard knocks. It is really true that we learn more from our mishaps and misfortunes than anything else.

Me for one, I know when things are going great, I am celebrating feeling good and just having a wild time. When things go wrong, my whole world caves in on me and I want to climb into a hole. To help overcome too much trauma related to this, one should always be prepared for the things that we know let us down and disappoint us.

Knowing this, we can protect ourselves better and be more prepared to handle things. With a little information gathering, you will get in tune with what you want. Take the time to get to know yourself. So many people knock the self-help books, courses and workshops. We believe that getting to know and understand yourself will help you and how you react to certain situations. This will be part of the recipe to getting through things just that much better and to say it in a nutshell: make you better at getting better. 

Working on yourself benefits others too, so why wouldn’t you choose to do something that ultimately is a good thing. Life just Happens! Wouldn’t you prefer to be ready and prepared for what comes? As you may already know: so much is out of our control, but there definitely are better ways of handling things. This is part of the process of self-betterment. Finding better ways to communicate throughout your life also cuts out a lot of regret and resentment because you say what you mean and mean what you say. Unfortunately, so many people do that, but without the required EQ, they tend to hurt and offend others. You don’t want to be that person.

We all hurt and we all worry, maybe to different degrees, but for most of us, we think other people are aliens and they just don’t get the situation or us. We make more of it than what is necessary all because we don’t really understand ourselves. If you don’t understand yourself it is even harder to understand others.

Self-help may even be the wrong word to use, maybe it's just being better. In order to do that, you need to work on your abilities, your limiting beliefs and general well-being of your life’s important aspects.

There is a great way of knowing what your life’s heart beat looks like by taking a look at these various aspects of your life and assessing them:

  • Knowing how you feel and how to deal with relationships whether it be family, friends or just people in general.
  • Getting down to the nitty-gritty of understanding work and career and what the difference is.
  • Whether or not you would be open to studying again.
  • Sorting out your money situation and understanding the importance of your actual cash and the relationship you have with it.
  • Getting more familiar with your spiritual side and getting to understanding why you think the way you do.
  • Working through what value you add.
  • How to learn to pay what you learn forwards.
  • Understanding yourself and learning about the person you are.
  • Knowing what you want to work on and improve.

So after reading those few aspects why wouldn’t you consider having a session to see what you want from your life. You can’t be wrong in wanting to try.

I will personally guarantee that you will see life differently after just one session.

Live your best life you deserve it.
