Have you ever felt like you are always stuck in the same shit in your business? …Like you’re stuck in a never-ending cycle of facing the same struggles, despite your best efforts to overcome them?
We have all been there, feeling stuck, worried and frustrated, wondering why we keep facing the same challenges over and over again.
But what if I told you that this is actually a good sign, a sign of growth and healing?
I want to share more about the concept of growth and healing from a different perspective: the Japanese concept of Wabi-Sabi. And no, that is not the stuff you put on your sushi :)
According to Wabi-Sabi growth and healing don’t happen in a straight line, they happen in a spiral.
So, what does it mean for growth and healing to happen in a spiral for your business?
It means that as we work through our challenges and grow, we will inevitably encounter them again at a deeper and new level in our business, with new perspectives and tools to handle them. The fact that we keep facing the “same shit”, but on a new level, is evidence that we are growing, not that we are failing.
Wabi-sabi teaches us also to embrace the beauty in imperfection and impermanence – or not being permanent .
Wabi-sabi is the acceptance that nothing is permanent. Just observe the flow of your in and out breath, the cycles of your emotions, the seasons, or the dance of the moon and the sun.
If you don’t accept the reality of impermanence, you will forever live in a state of frustration.
It’s a common misconception that we can work through our struggles once and never have to face them again. This simply isn’t the case. The faster you understand this concept as a business owner and understand that growth is not linear and realize that your struggles will not disappear the quicker you grow to another level in your business.
Struggles will come and go
Every struggle is an invitation to free another talent within you.
Every struggle is an invitation to express yourself more boldly
Every struggle is an invitation to love more fiercely
Each time you encounter your struggles, you have the opportunity to grow and heal in new and deeper ways.
Or you can travel the other way.
You keep struggling on the same level.
You become more frustrated, closed or cynical.
You work harder with every setback you have.
But not you.
When you discovered your major themes and shadows in the Rock Your Talent Accelerator Business Journey you see every struggle as an invitation to become more of who you really are.
Every time you conquer something you grow upwards.
You feel lighter, happier and even more connected to yourself and everyone around you.
You will attract different type of clients.
You are able to receive more and feel more grounded.
So ..next time when you encounter a challenge that you thought you had overcome, take a moment to observe how you handle it. Did you catch it more quickly this time? Did it hook you less completely? Did you create less wreckage as a result of it than before?
If so, celebrate yourself – these are all signs of growth!
This is the evidence that you have grown, and you are now better equipped to handle this challenge.
So, don’t beat yourself up if you encounter the same challenges again. Embrace it as a sign that you are growing and healing, and use it as an opportunity to continue to work through them in a deeper and more meaningful way.
It’s about the journey, not the destination. Letting go of this limiting belief can be one of the most powerful steps in your personal growth journey.
