• Guest Blog – Brian King – When Life Goes Other Than Planned

    Posted on January 26, 2013 by Cynthia Gossman in Uncategorized.

    Welcome to “The Conversation”

    The conversation is the heart of connection, growth and learning. We can only grow together, through sharing ideas and learning from each other. I look forward to learning from you. Let’s have a conversation.

    We all have plans.

    We all make plans.

    Only to have our plans go, well, other than planned.

    What do you do then?

    What many people do is pretend that this is the first time its ever happened. No matter how many times in life we have the experience of planning one thing and experiencing another, many still act as though it absolutely shouldn’t happen that way and is a horrible injustice when it does.

    It is a horrible injustice indeed. One committed by us toward life.

    You see, one of our greatest strengths is resilience. The ability to catch or hit the curveballs of life instead of simply being hit by them then declaring an injustice.

    Every time life goes different we are handed a sacred opportunity to be resourceful and keep moving forward any way.

    When we do, we also have the opportunity and obligation to give credit where its due.

    The credit is expressed in the form of gratitude for the people and the resources that prepared us for that moment and gave us what we needed to persevere and get through it.

    Either that or we can throw a temper tantrum because things didn’t go our way. Yeah, why would we want to pass up a perfect opportunity to be dramatic instead of grateful.

    Thanks For Being You,

    Brian R. King
