One of the biggest factors that I’ve seen keeping clients stuck energetically is that they have not grieved their losses. Ungrieved loss is the ultimate productivity killer.
To avoid the pain of regret and disappointment, we often try to turn every failure and mistake into an “opportunity” or a “lesson.” But when we bypass the pain, we deny ourselves the true growth opportunity.
Do you look at your accomplishments and ignore your disappointments? Do you look only at your disappointments and ignore your wins? Or do you ignore it all? Whatever approach you take, keep in mind that how you end is how you begin.
We need to stop making “negative” emotions wrong, and instead learn how to embrace them to catalyze growth.
