I will admit I am not a sports fan. It is interesting that this article is slated to release the wake of Super Bowl 50. I appreciate the analogies sports brings to our game of life. At this point, my life is more like a game as I get to create my reality like my boys create their Minecraft world.
I do not know about you, but have you had things in your life that seem like you just lost the ball? My purpose and mission with recoverysquared.com to help us recover from life’s fumbles and transcend them into the game-winning victories.
In life’s game, we will fumble. This can be due to our own mistakes or even can happen when one of our team mates doesn’t perform their role. I want to take a moment and recount when we have caused our own fumble. I also would like to recount a time when someone else helped create a fumble situation in life. I know for me this brings up some painful memories. What about you?
It is not always our fault, but it will happen again. Being aware of what occurred at the moment is imperative. Being mindful of the consequences and opportunity that lays ahead. With practice these situations can be transmuted in creating a new reality, we never knew existed.
Hopefully, the life we are trying to create is analogous to the end zone or winning. Keeping our focus on the life, we want to create instead of a lost ball is required to transcend the fumble into creating miracles. If the ball is the ultimate goal and we lose it, what are we left? Nothing!
If we know that our goals is to create, the lost ball doesn’t necessarily detract us from our primary objective. Part of manifesting our desired life is the faith that each step, perceived as right or wrong, good or bad, is part of creating process.
The ball almost doesn’t matter because we have no control over it, only perceived control. We can make good use of the time we do have it. Focusing on creating opportunities and having the mindset to take massive action when there is chaos and mass opportunity.
The chaos will ensue but amongst this chaos is a greater chance if we have the proper mindset. Abandoning judgment towards our perceived loss and shifting our vision to seeing the infinite possibility of change. Initially it might seem as a negative.
That so called fumble might get us out of a bad relationship, it might create new job opportunities, new focus, new possibility. Constant change is required to live our Infinite Potential. It might be this very fumble that starts this new way of living.
In life, the ball is attached to our ego through who we think we are with money, jobs, relationships and other things outside of ourselves. The further detached we become from these the more whole we become.
Anytime a fumble happens we can see the players scramble and the chaos it brings. All too often most everyone is solely focused on the ball. When a fumble occurs in life the focus is not the ball. The focus is on the overall picture of creating the life we desire.
Having faith whether we recover the ball or not, we still win. In order to win we are required to know what we are playing for. We must have visualized the images, know the feeling and have a plan. We need to know the life we are trying to create.
A lost ball will not deter us from our primary purpose if we are aware it was a baby step in the grand plan of our life. That lost ball will create other unimaginable opportunities.
It is important to know where our team members are. I have a team of people I reach out to when I am faced with a fumble. Do you have a network of people to help you deal with life problems when they come? Having this support system before will help our recovery.
Having co-creators and coaches in my life has been transformational. It is the single most important aspect of my personal recovery story and living my Infinite Potential. Today I only have co-creators in my life where we are helping each other create a life according to our Infinite Potential.
In team sports your position dictates nearly every aspect of your role. When fumbles happen it turns this paradigm upside down. Defensive players that normally do not touch the ball all of a the sudden have the opportunity to score the game-winning touchdown.
Learning to think of new ways of playing life’s game is part of the challenge. Have you ever gotten too comfortable with your place? To me comfortable is stuck or accepting that which should not be. Is your position your purpose? If I am not pushing and challenging my position, I am not living my infinite potential.
My chaos point was after learning of my wife’s affair, a gun to my head and on a plane the next day for work. I told myself, “Never will I live like this again!”
From that point on I have taken those chaos moments and channeled them into massive action. Some of these actions go against the positions society wants us in, but I know that I live under God’s grace and I have a supernatural ability to create my own position and reality.
If you are at a point where you know there is more to life during that chaos, let’s take massive action to create something you never thought possible. I did it and so can you. If you are not amidst life’s fumbles there are those that are. If you are creating the life you desire you are on my team just by reading this article.
Please share your fumble to winning story to help inspire someone!
