Understand why you are exactly where you need to be in life.
It’s easy to complain that you aren’t where you want to be, however, in reality, you are exactly where you need to be.
I know that sounds harsh. You may be thinking, “What’s she talking about? I don’t like what’s happening in my life right now.”
I say that you are where you need to be because there are lessons that you have to learn and life tests that you need to pass before you can graduate to that next phase.
Unfortunately, the place that you need to be right now may be uncomfortable. However, progress begins at the end of your comfort zone.
You may need to reside in the uncomfortable zone for 4 reasons.
Why you are exactly where you need to be in life
You Need to Learn a Lesson
In order to graduate to the next level, you need to have the proper foundation in order for you to succeed. This requires lessons that you need to learn now in your current experiences.
If you don’t pass the test or learn those lessons, then you will keep repeating those same situations until you understand what you need to know. Understanding these key lessons will develop your faith muscles and put you in a better position to help others.
You Need to Grow
You want to move into your next level at the right time and with the right mindset. If that doesn’t happen, then you may squander your blessings.
Think about it this way. If you significantly increase your income but you haven’t learned how to manage your money, then you may waste your money and eventually go broke. Therefore, you must develop the right mindset to be able to handle your next level.
Appreciate what you have
One thing that holds many of us back is lack of gratitude. Without gratitude, you can’t appreciate what you have, you covet what others have, and then you go broke trying to keep up with them.
Be a good steward of and be thankful for what you do have then you can position yourself to receive more.
You may be where you need to be at this stage in life because you need to pause and listen to where you are being led. This time of reflection is also a time of preparation, so that way you have the personal development and skills that you need to be successful in this new space.
Take the time to listen, tune out the noise, and spend time in reflection and meditation.
Why you are going to get to your next level
If you feel like you’re in a plateau, don’t compare yourself to others. You don’t know what they’ve gone through in order to get to where they are. If you want what someone else has then you have to be willing to walk in their shoes, endure the challenges that they have faced, and make similar sacrifices.
Even if you’re willing to make those sacrifices, don’t covet their blessing. Instead use it as motivation to push through your plateau to get to your next level. Stay laser-focused on doing the required work to discover and obtain the blessing that is tailor made for you.
