While things are working we we don't often dig deeper to go for the gold. When we are in a leadership position and we are doing good work, making progress, developing wise relationships not only but using them to do good in the world, we don't often stop and reassess what the right next step is and thereby don't focus on deep inner workings which are limiting our potential to get us to the highest possible purpose we have for ourselves.
When we have to stop because a stumble occurred then we realize we have been getting inklings for some time that we are doing is no longer going to take us stably or comfortably to the next level. We realize then that we need to take deliberate action, be open to the changes that are needed to happen in order for us to thrive and prosper, and no longer stay in our comfort zones of what is already bringing us blessings and fulfillment but is not the ultimate purpose of our lives. Through setbacks our wisdom deepens, our hearts grow, our dedication to building up resolve deepens, but mostly we know who we can depend on and what is truly our path. For the path emerges, the right people come along, but mainly we decide to change and no longer hold onto things which went away or which were no longer working healthily anymore.
Let yourself grow through the struggle, listen to the wisdom, and change. The new is exactly where you need to be.
