Say someone oversleeps and blows an important job interview, or perhaps an overdue, well-deserved promotion is given to a colleague who does less. Who is to blame?
No one. There is no sabotage, self or otherwise. There is only flow. When we assign blame for our daily misfortunes, we give our power away. It's time to get honest with ourselves.
"If I really wanted that job, I would have gone to bed early and set 3 alarms."
"This organization doesn't value my talents. Perhaps it is time to explore my options."
The river of flow is waiting to take us somewhere once we stop clinging to the bank of disappointment and become curious about where life will lead us next. Something better is waiting.
