Do you ever have those days where you ask yourself “why me?”

Most of us can attest to being in that headspace.  Where clients cancel your services, deals fall apart, and the odds seem to be stacked against you.  I want to challenge you to start changing the dialogue of “why me” and instead ask “why not me”.

Part of a healthy mindset begins with acknowledging that we don’t have control over all the events that happen in our lives, but we do have control over how we react to them. If you consistently ask “why me”, you are essentially telling yourself that it is unfair, or unjust, and that you are a victim of whatever is happening.  There is zero power in being a victim.  By asking “why me”, you are also setting yourself up to believing that “it” shouldn’t have happened.  And that is the biggest lie we tell ourselves.  Maybe things fall apart to make room for better things to take its place? Maybe that deal fell apart so that a better one could come in? (I’ve had situations like that happen.  Haven’t you?). Maybe that client that cancelled your services wasn’t a good match for you to begin with? (I’ve had that happen too!)

As Wayne Dyer puts it, “When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at start to change”.
