The secret meaning of apparent defeat

When something you push for really hard does happen, How do you shift from feeling defeated to realizing that there is a purposeful reason and perhaps something much better waiting for you? How do you go past a sense of loss or defeat and into a sense of wonder and excitement about what is yet to come? My video today provides a few ideas about what the hidden meaning of defeat may offer.

My video today offers an alternative sense of purpose for when things don’t work out as expected. Can you think back to a time in your life when something failed to happen and something much bigger and better happened later?

For me, it's about the fact that we don't always know what's best for us. Just like kids need to listen to their parents, so we - adults - need to listen to The Universe (or whatever higher power we look to for guidance). Some of the most tragic circumstances I've seen in my life are those in which someone gets so caught up in pursuing (or losing) the thing they thought they wanted, that they are blind to something else that has presented itself - another opportunity, person, dream. We must always keep an open mind and heart. You never know what wonderful gift lies right around the corner. :) Thanks for another great post!

So true, Bernardo. I always tell my kids that if it didn't work out it's because something better will. On my path, every road-block was actually a sign turning me in a different direction. And all roads led to here! :-) Lori

Wow, that was such an awesome message on defeat, detaching, and trusting that there is something better! I've struggled with detaching from the outcome of building a new home - it's been several years since the hurricane wiped us out (in South Louisiana) and our attempts to make this happen, well, haven't happened. In the course of that time, we were flooded by Ike's waters that hit Galveston. The water came over our home site...5 feet! Thank goodness we hadn't built yet! Fast forward, my husband lost his job and we went into a slight tailspin after a year. Thank goodness we didn't have that big ole mortgage note! I try to keep myself open that there is a reason. One thing I know for sure, my home plans keep getting better & better with storage solutions, socializing areas (under the house, because we know we'll build higher and create outdoor living area underneath it), and we'll pay for everything as we build. We have a plan, haven't started building yet, but am staying open that when the time is right, if ever, it will happen with more amazing results than we dared to dream in the beginning! In the meantime, we are living it up with our kids!
