How to Keep Setbacks From Holding You Back


A few years ago, I wanted something very, very badly. I was in total manifesting mode, I believed it, I could see it, I knew that it was going to happen. I was also super attached to what form this thing that I so desired would manifest in. I had my hopes set high, and then things didn’t work out the way I wanted them to. In the moment, I was crushed and defeated, thinking that I had done something wrong, or that the odds were stacked against me and my true desires. Then I remembered that sometimes there are detours in getting to the destination. I reframed the situation, doubled down on my faith, and held strongly onto the trust that ultimately I would find what I was looking for. This reframe saved me from going down a dark rabbit hole, and it’s something I remember daily when I think that things aren’t going my way.

Have you ever wanted something so badly you thought you would be devastated if it didn’t come through? Have you ever pined for something so deeply that you felt down in your soul that it was bound to be true? Have you ever felt all these feelings just to discover that the thing you wanted went to someone else or the feelings weren’t true? Have you ever experienced setbacks and deep disappointment? Have you ever felt like the Universe wasn’t working on your side?

I know you all have felt something like this at least once in your life.

The truth is we all have high hopes, ideals, goals, and very specific desires. It truly is wonderful when we manifest these things. Sometimes, the Universe has different plans. Sometimes we don’t get what we want, but we truly get what we need (thank you, Rolling Stones). What if we could re-frame setbacks, rejections, and disappointments? What if we could see it all differently, so that even when our minds perceive things going wrong, our hearts know that things actually are going right?

This is our work this week. I think it’s timely work because it’s safe to say we all have very intense expectations and desires for this coming week. The United States (and the world) is approaching a immensely important moment in history next week. No matter your political beliefs, we all feel the pressure of getting what we want. What a perfect time it is for us to practice in these days ahead how to manage our expectations, while still holding firmly to our deep desires.

If things don’t go your way, remember. . .

– Rejection is often times a redirection
– Just because it’s a no right now doesn’t mean it’s a no forever
– Look for alternate solutions to your perceived problem
– Don’t lose a drop of your desire
– Tweak the details of what you really want to help yourself find clear direction
– There is a lesson in everything. What can you learn from what is showing up in your life?

I hope these little tips help you to remember that set backs don’t have to hold you back. Remember, everything is unfolding exactly as it should! Trust that!
