Focus on the Big Picture: Setbacks Are Only Small Details
This week there have been several things that have happened to me that have reminded me to focus on the big picture. So, I figured I’d pass this message along to you today on the blog.
Here’s the thing, we often get caught up in the details and we lose sight of what it is we really want.
For instance, perhaps you want to fall in love with your soulmate. However instead of staying focused on the end game (a quality relationship) you get hung up on every little detail of your dating life. You a lot of time worrying about how a date went, if he will call, or if you said the right thing.
Or perhaps, maybe your dream is to be a big Hollywood actor. Instead of keeping your eye on the grand prize you find yourself stressing about individual auditions or the perfection of your headshot. Instead of keeping the faith, perfectionism suffocates your talent and charisma.
This happens to us a lot. We often can’t see the forest for the trees.
Setbacks are Small Details in a Major Plan
Sometimes, you have a big goal for yourself and a small setback causes you to lose a little faith. However, in the long run, we frequently find that the setback was actually helping us, rather than hurting us.
For example, maybe it was a GOOD thing that guy didn’t call you back, so you would be available when Mr. Right showed up.
Maybe it was a GOOD thing that you lost that client, because it taught you something invaluable about business. Without that loss you wouldn’t be prepared to really run a profitable business.
Perhaps it was a GOOD thing that you swung and missed a few times. Every at bat you took made you stronger and prepared you for the success you really ultimately wanted.
Remember, if you have a big dream, the universe is always doing its best to steer you toward it. Sometimes this means you bump up against lessons and stepping stones to help you get where you want to be.
So today, if you find yourself getting wrapped up in the details, take a step back! Take a deep breath and remind yourself what you’re really reaching for.
Focus on the big picture, and let the details come and go as easily as you can. The easier you are on the setbacks, the easier those same setbacks will lead you precisely where you wish to be.
