Events Have Purpose and Setbacks Create Lessons

“Every event has a purpose and every setback its lesson. I have realized that failure, whether of the personal, professional or even spiritual kind, is essential to personal expansion. It brings inner growth and a whole host of psychic rewards. Never regret your past. Rather, embrace it as the teacher that it is.” – The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari by Robin S. Sharma

The Lies of the World

The world often lies to us that nothing has purpose and that setbacks are simply expected and are setbacks. The lies are perpetrated through media and news, social media, colleagues that don’t have our best interests in mind, and sometimes even those we deem friends and family. For some reason, critical thinking is no longer cherished, and sometimes may even be deemed a “conspiracy theory” when there is no agreement between parties. How does this change?

What Can You Do?

You’ve got to take a stand. Take a stand for yourself. Take a stand for others. It is believing that all things happen for a reason, and that every event has a purpose. It is believing that a lesson can be learned in what may be initially experienced as a setback. A “setback” is often followed by a breakthrough if that is your mindset. Changing our thinking that all things have purpose, and that failures are nearly stepping stones will not only serve in our personal growth, and I believe it can change the world.

Be the Astronaut that Goes to Mars

The past is the past. It’s already in the books. What purpose did that event serve? Sometimes it is hard to see because of the nature of that event. Yet, it happened, and you’ve grown from it. Every experience has a lesson, and when we take those lessons and implement them, we experience growth. We cut a new path in our journey of life. If you’re reading this, what is to say that your growth and change of mindset could lead you to be the next Benjamin Franklin, Abraham Lincoln, the next Picasso, or a future astronaut that travels to Mars. Embrace the past as a teacher, implement the lessons learned, and watch new doors open in your life.

Stop listening to the lies of the world. Start listening to the lessons learned in this journey of life. Be curious. Ask questions. “Every event has a purpose and every setback a lesson.”

If this message hits home with you, take a moment to share as it may be what someone else needs to hear today.

Now go make it a great day and experience the lessons of life.

A Polar Vortex Mindset Shift

Written By: Coach Jeremy Williams

Real Estate Coach Jeremy Williams Red Hawk Coaching Mindset Texas Polar Vortex February 15th 2021

Texas is getting a beat down by this once in a generation Polar Vortex bringing ice, snow, and frigid temperatures. The electric grid has failed leaving over 2 Million Texans without power and in some cases without water due to frozen pipes. The kids are at home after already being off all of last week for their February break, and they are a little stir crazy.

Is my mindset being tested? Absolutely.

I have to admit as strong a mindset as I’ve built over the years. Today has tested it to some extent. When I realized mindset was off the rails, I knew I had to get centered.

I poured into my work, my client coaching conversations, knocked off some big projects that have been looming in the background. I put myself into action thus changing the way I felt about the day, and forced a change in my thinking. Mindset can be changed by simply getting into action.

Are you struggling today with mindset? Get into action, and experience your mindset shift.

BTW – How often do you see sunshine, palm trees, a live oak, and a roof covered in snow in Texas? The answer is NEVER. For my fellow Texans, I pray for your safety as this isn’t over yet. Texans are tough…no doubt.

Take Action

Written By: Coach Jeremy Williams

I would like to share my thoughts on taking action both in your business and in life. You can hear my full thoughts on this topic by listening to the above video. Taking action, and more importantly the right action, in your business and life is the only way you will ever get results. I’ve now been coaching business owners since 2010, and what I’ve found taught and coached from other companies is that business owners should focus on the way they think and feel. As a business coach, there are a couple of things I disagree with this approach.

  1. Most people who call themselves coaches are not equipped through training and experience to deal with the thoughts and feelings of people. This is a proceed with caution area because in some cases a coach can do more harm than good. Coaches will often times wade into these areas not prepared, or saying they have experience to address particular issues that they have no business attempting. 
  2. When there is an emphasis on thinking and feelings it leads to individuals that take the following approach to their business. Aim, aim, aim, aim, aim, ready, ready, aim, ready, aim, ready, and then fire. I’ve witnessed over the years many business owners that thought and felt their way out of their particular line of business. 

For the above reasons, this is why I focus on coaching people to take action. When business owners can take the right actions in their businesses, it leads to results. Results lead to reinforcement of current programming, or it can also lead to a change in programming. Programming leads to thinking. Thinking leads to feelings, and feelings lead to action. Based on the action and previous results, this can include a change in the actions taken to net different results.

You may be reading this and thinking this is the same model used by those that start with programming, thinking, and feelings. The answer is yes, it is that I’ve found business owners over the years have been more successful when they’ve started on the wheel with action. It eliminates overthinking, it is based more in instinct, and results are netted much quicker. 

If you’re looking for a coach that focuses on getting into action, reach out to me today. Contact me today to set up a FREE business strategy call. I look forward to connecting with you soon to see how I can help you meet the goals you’ve set for yourself and your business.
