How To Change Your Perspective About Now What Moments
Hey Dream Achievers!
Today we are talking about how to shift your perspective about Now What Moments so you can navigate them with ease and grace.
If you aren’t familiar with the term Now What Moment it’s essentially a time many of us experience at some point in our lives. Where you feel stuck in between your last and your future, you probably feel uncomfortable and not sure what to do next.
Some examples of Now What Moments are: breakups, college graduation, changing careers, moving, or starting a business.
Experiencing a Now What Moment is an indication that something needs to shift.
When you’re in the thick of a Now What Moment it can be extremely unpleasant.
When I experienced Now What Moments, like breakups, changing careers, starting a business, university college graduation/quarter-life crisis, it was a dark time.
I experienced a lot of anxiety, depression and loneliness.
It wasn’t until I shifted my perspective and got to the other side of it, that I learned these powerful lessons that I am going to share with you now.
I wish I would have known these things back then, that way, I would have been able to navigate my Now What Moments with more ease and grace. That’s why I want to share them with you.
Here are two ways you can reframe your perspective going into Now What Moments:
It’s Time For a New Beginning.
Whether you’re going through a breakup, losing your job, or graduating from college, there’s a natural tendency to focus on the ending of the chapter.
There’s a tendency to focus on what you are leaving behind.
You can reframe this by shifting your focus. Instead of focusing on what you are losing, focus on the abundance of opportunity and possibility in front of you.
If you’re focusing on expansion, new opportunities, excitement, and joy in any situation, that can help shift your state, pushing you toward the right path.
When you’re stuck in Now What Moment, remember, yes it’s an ending, but focus on the abundance of possibilities that are before you.
It’s Time For Growth and Expansion
Now What Moments occur to help us grow.
They divinely happen when we are in a state of complacency, comfort, or a place of averageness.
Say you’re in a relationship and it’s not the best, you’re longing for more. Or you have a job, and it’s okay, but you don’t want an okay job for the rest of your life, right? You’re in the 9-5 and daydreaming about having your own business.
There’s a longing for more.
Now What Moments happen to shake us up and move us into growth and expansion.
Like COVID for example.
Everyone has their opinions about it, but I think that it all happened so that the world would shift.
There is so much beauty that has resulted from the situation if you’re focusing on the positive.
People are working from home and getting more time with their families. People are shifting into entrepreneurship and getting the courage to step outside of their comfort zone.
There are so many positive things that have come out of it that have allowed us to grow and expand.
Now What Moments, shake us up and allow us to change.
Similar to when a teenager is experiencing growing pains. That feeling of discomfort allowed us to grow and blossom into something more.
When you’re in the thick of it, you’ll be uncomfortable, but once you overcome it, you’ll step into an area of growth, and you’re going to think, I know why this happened after all.
So, embrace the growth and the expansion.
It’s Time For a Pause Before the Take Off.
There is this sense of polarity that naturally happens with many things in nature. An ebb and flow, the waves receding and coming back in, the sun going down and then rising again, the flowers dying and coming back in the spring.
This pullback, pause, and introspection that happens within Now What Moments gives us the ability to take off and step into even better versions of ourselves capable of achieving more than we ever thought possible.
Viewing your Now What Moment as a pause before takeoff will allow you to navigate discomfort with ease and grace.
Reframing your perspective when you’re experiencing a Now What Moment is KEY to navigating it with ease.
