How to Recover After a Dream Falls Through

Just when I had a tight schedule of interviews and teaching, a big project that I as very emotionally invested in and had been working on for several months in fell apart.

And it all collapsed at the last minute when it appeared that it was a done deal. It was a shock and it was devastating to me personally.

I was emotionally distraught and I had an interview to do in 10 minutes.

I won’t go into details now, but I had 2 choices. I could totally fall apart and go into the ‘why me’ victim mode or I could take what action was available to me to repair the situation. I chose to look for ways to put the project back together if at all possible.

I’ve been working on it for the last week and it’s not something I’m able to fix, and now I’m going through a grieving period for a personal dream that isn’t going to happen right now in the way I had thought.

I have not given up on the dream though.

Now, if I was looking for an excuse to not take action on some of the things on my plate, this would be a perfectly acceptable excuse.

But I am going for my dreams 100% because I’ve created a vision for my life that’s running down the tracks like a runaway train. My life is moving forward because that’s the power of the momentum I’ve set in motion. I’ve created my life so that it’s virtually chicken-out proof unless I move to a far away land and take a vow of silence. (Me, silent?)

Wouldn’t you like to create a vision that strong for your life?
Wouldn’t it be great to have a plan that is virtually self-sabotage proof?

Could you benefit from working with a mentor who gets back up and keeps going when things get tough? If you’d like to work with me personally, email me.
