So many of the clients I work with say to me “I wish I had changed sooner,” or “why did I waste so much time?”

My response is always the same, you don’t know what you don’t know until you know it.

And, if that is the case, how could you have possibly made a different choice?!?

You were making decisions based on the knowledge and information you had at that time.

Does that make any of your experiences a waste of time? I don’t think so, though maybe some might find that a controversial statement.

I am okay with that, after all, not everything that I say is the absolute truth.

My goal today is to support you in reframing your thinking, even just a little bit.

Consider This for a Moment

Ask yourself this question “how would my life be different if I stopped believing my experiences were a waste of time?”

What if you could shift out of this mentality that some of your choices led to time wasted and started embracing the fact that there was a life lesson yearning to be learned.

Would that help you to stop thinking things such as:

“I wasted the best years of my life doing x, y, z”

“If I had listened to my gut and followed the signs I wouldn’t have made so many mistakes, I would be so much further ahead”

“I would have avoided that person or situation entirely if I knew it was going to turn out this way”

Can you see how this pattern of thinking keeps you stuck even further? How it perpetuates the cycle that you’re not good enough and that your instincts cannot be trusted?

Can you reframe those pesky thoughts and start to become curious about what you were meant to learn? The growth that was supposed to come from that experience?

I don’t know about you, but some of my greatest growth came through making mistakes. It gave me the opportunity to lean into the learning made available to me and come out of it more evolved.

A better version of me, Denise 2.0!

This too can be the same for you but it’s going to take a powerful shift in your thinking to get there.

That’s where I come in with this handy dandy blog post wouldn’t you say?

So what do you do?

One thing that has worked to support me in this endeavor is flipping my way of thinking when I start getting into the “time wasted” trap.

Instead of thinking “what a waste” I instead think “what is this situation, that encounter, that challenge was EXACTLY what I needed”

And without it, I would have stayed the exact same, feeling STUCK and stagnant.

Sometimes the Universe needs to shake things up a bit to get your attention, guiding you towards the greater learning available to you.

So, let’s together work towards shifting the narrative, moving away from saying “I wasted my time” and start saying “I’m grateful for the opportunity to learn this incredible lesson

That mindset shift will have an impact, that much I’m sure of.

You ARE capable of flipping the narrative!

Are you tired of feeling like you can’t shift your way of thinking? That you’re stuck in your old ways for good? If so, you and I should set up a time to chat.

This is something I’m consistently supporting my clients with, and they are seeing powerful results.

I want the same for you.

I broke free of this myself, so I know what is waiting on the other side. You can and deserve to rewrite your story.
