How To Handle Unexpected Bad Events

What to do when unexpected bad happens? Something comes along, out of the blue, that is less than glorious. How can you best handle it so  you don’t create more problems? How can you begin to create more opportunity and manifest good things for your future?

It is all depends on what you think and what you say to yourself and to others. Keep in mind the notion I frequently promote here. Speak only to bless, heal and prosper. Don’t repeatedly tell, and relive, the ‘negative’ story. Stop doing that! Instead, tell one that supports you.

Say, ‘well I didn’t expect that. Some people might say they had a problem. I have a new opportunity presenting itself to examine and utilize my resources. I don’t know what to do about it, yet, but I know everything always works out well for me in the end.’

Train Yourself To Find The Blessing In Everything – Feel Blessed

‘I also know that in adversity is the seed of opportunity. This situation will help me get clear on what I want. Getting really clear about what I want will help me make it happen.’ Don’t judge or label it bad.  Simply say, it’s something you didn’t expect.

Don’t get negative. Don’t speak in less than glorious terms. Do not ignore it. Don’t lie about it. Don’t say it is ‘all fabulous’ if you don’t feel that. That only creates internal conflict. Don’t create a conflict. Simply, reframe how you think and speak about all of it. Get it?

Simply say, ‘I have a situation and I don’t know how it’s gonna work out. Ultimately, it’s gonna work out for the best. Things always work out for the best. I’m gonna celebrate the learning and all the opportunities that are now before me. This is an opportunity.’

Count Your Blessings Not Your Problems – Think Differently

‘I have an opportunity to think, feel, be, do and act differently than I had planned. All of it is an opportunity. All of it will work out. I just don’t know how, yet, so I’m going to get clear on what I do want. I’m going to work on what I can make happen.’

Things never work out the way you think they will. There’s always twists and turns and surprises, so you might as well get used to that. Accept it. Life is an adventure. You can plan but, almost always, your plans will change. Life is ups and downs. Life provides contrast.

Adversity helps you. Perhaps, you really do need what is occurring in order to get clear and focus intently on what you want. Perhaps, you  have to intensify your pursuit. Use it to your advantage. It is a good and positive thing that happened. Get clear on your goals.

Be Grateful For Small Things Big Things And All In Between

You can never know how things will turn out. Adventures are filled with good times and challenges. All of them are a blessings. Sadly, you and the rest of us, have been previously conditioned to accept some and reject others. You have beliefs about what is good and bad.

Until now, you may not have believed that these events can be blessings. Most of us were conditioned to dislike the unexpected. We whine, blame, excuse. and accuse. So we lose out and we suffer. We suffer because of our chronic, old conditioned mindset.

Now you have opportunity to go beyond your beliefs and evolve as a person. You can go to a higher level. When everything is a blessing your life becomes incredible! You didn’t get the outcome you expected. So what? Celebrate. It is a gift and a blessing! Get it?

Perception Is Everything – Believing Is Seeing – It Is All Up To You

Still, you may not yet believe this. These kind of experiences, these lessons, these opportunities, will happen over and over again until you learn that this IS how it works. Everything is a blessing. Give yourself room to accept this. Until you do, expect the unexpected.

Begin to believe that everything happens for your good even though you may not be able to see what that is right now. Don’t let defeat define you. Don’t succumb to negativity because ‘crap’ hits the fan. What anything IS is whatever you DECIDE it is. It’s all up to you.

Things happen to you. It can all be good. You just haven’t believed that before. Give yourself permission to. Accept and allow it and your life can transform. Find the silver linings. Consider everything an opportunity, a lesson and a blessing. Give yourself permission to shine! Feel grateful. Express your gratitude. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes
