Getting to the Other Side of a Breakthrough

Getting to the Other Side of a Breakthrough

We all have different experiences and challenges to break through in our lives. Life without challenges is simply not life at all. But what’s important to do is to take the lessons you learn and use them to move forward in all areas of your life.

Although we all have challenges to break through, when and if we actually do often depends on our willingness to take the necessary steps to make it happen.

You can have a breakthrough in your business. You can have a breakthrough in your personal life. A breakthrough can occur for you professionally. However it occurs, it is important to use it as momentum to get you where you ultimately desire to be.

Breakthroughs don’t normally happen on their own. Most often they require you to initiate some type of action or work to help you get there.

Sometimes it doesn’t look as if you’re getting anywhere. Sometimes it doesn’t look as if there is anything shifting. But if you keep putting one foot in front of the other and doing the required work, one day you’ll look up and see that you’re on the other side of your breakthrough.

Breakthroughs are often times seen as an illusion to people, because many don’t believe they will actually experience it in their own lives, especially for those things that are most important to them. They only know about them abstractly without really feeling as if one is in their future.

Well, I am here to tell you that your breakthrough is coming. Your breakthrough is doable. Your breakthrough is possible. But you must first have the commitment to see it through.

It will feel uncomfortable at times. It will feel unbearable. It will feel impossible. But stay committed to the end for you never know just how far or how close you are to your ultimate breakthrough.

Some of our greatest blessings are found on the other side of our breakthroughs.

The Importance of Leaving Dead Things Dead

The Importance of Leaving Dead Things Dead

You can’t move forward and welcome new things, experiences and people into your life if you are still giving time, emotions, attention and energy to the dead things from your past.

It is important to clear the space and energy so what you truly desire can have the room and space to enter. Otherwise, you may be blocking all of what you claim you want from entering into your life.

It could be a person. It could be a situation. It could be an experience. Whatever it is, life will give you an abundance of opportunities to teach you that some things are meant to die right where they lay. They are not meant to be revived.
 

the-past
 

All things from your past may not be completely dead. You have to look at the totality of the situation to determine if it is something that is worth breathing life into or if it is something that should simply be left there to die. If you live your life consciously, life will give you the signs you need to determine exactly how to proceed.

Many times what we do, despite seeing the signs, is determine what it is that we want and decide accordingly based on that fact alone. We do it in relationships. We do it in different situations. We do it based on different occurrences that happen in our lives.
 

guidance
 

Sometimes it’s not that your blessings are delayed. Sometimes it’s the people you keep around and the circumstances you keep living in that can be blocking your blessings. Until you are able and willing to shift your own life’s circumstances nothing else new will be ushered in.

Leave dead things dead. Run on to see what blessings and life lie ahead for you. It very well may be far greater than you could have ever imagined it would be holding on to the people, circumstances and things from your past.

The Power of Reinvention

The Power of Reinvention

There comes a time in everyone’s life where you have to reinvent yourself.

Life is lived in many seasons. And before a new season can begin, the current season must end.

Life will give you plenty of opportunities to try something new, to evolve, to grow, expand to another place of being and to move forward in a way that only reinventing yourself can create.
 

reinvention-monique-manigault
 

Often reinvention occurs only after a disappointment, a loss, a perceived failure, the forcing of the hand to push someone from where they currently are into a new space of living. However, you can create reinvention all on your own the moment you decide that where you currently are no longer serves you.

Change can happen in a moment. The moment you finally decide that your fear of the unknown is far less threatening than the pain of where you currently live now.

It first starts with a deep desire for something different. A knowing that something else is awaiting you. Then you put together the steps to get you to your end goal. Sometimes you may not have a specific end goal in mind, but you know that it’s time for something different, something better, something other than your current existence. So, you just begin to take small steps moving forward.

Trust that the universe will guide you to exactly where you are suppose to be. And before you know it, you are living the life you only once dreamed of.
 

reinvention-monique-manigault
 

Many amazing discoveries happen all because someone ignited the courage inside her/himself to walk the path of reinvention.

You may not be able to do it on your own. You may need to seek the guidance, support and expertise of someone in certain areas to assist you. It doesn’t matter what it takes. The future you is calling you to get there.

It is never too late for reinvention. Reinvention is not precluded by age. You’re never too old or too young to experience yourself a new. As long as there is breath, an idea, an opportunity, a dream, there is space for the next great reinvention in your life to occur.

The Power of Being Good To Your Inner Self

The Power of Being Good To Your Inner Self

We are often our harshest critics. We judge ourselves based on the things we do, the things we don’t do and all the things we still have yet to do.

And although it’s a great skill to self evaluate, if you don’t do it in the most loving way, instead of building yourself up, you’ll be part of tearing your spirit down.
 

power-of-being-good-to-your-inner-self-monique-manigault
 

Dr. Maya Angelou said, “when you know better, you do better.”

Instead of beating yourself over the head and absorbing a ton of negative energy in the process – how about taking some time to first thank yourself for what you have accomplished, evaluate where you are, look at where you want to go and identify the gaps in between.

We all have areas of our lives we want to improve. We all have goals and ambitions we want to achieve. But hold yourself to them in the most caring way. Do not become one of the naysayers for your own life. Your desires and wishes cannot survive in that space. They cannot thrive in that space. They cannot even live in that space.
 

power-of-being-good-to-your-inner-self-monique-manigault
 

Being good to your inner self doesn’t mean that you are not a realist about where you are or where you may be at any given time. But what it does is identify the issues and looks at the holes and gaps necessary to be filled to get you to your desired end.

It is not going to happen overnight. To get to any destination, you must first take the necessary steps to get you there. You have to create a plan and execute it daily to make sure you’re on your way to your goal mark.

Get the support you need from wherever you need to get it to fill in the gaps to move your life forward, but do it in a loving way.

Because being good to your inner self shows others what you expect from them in the level of goodness they give to you.

The Gift of Failure

The Gift of Failure

Failure is among one of the most undesirable occurrences in people’s lives.

When people have what the world considers a failure, it will often paralyze them. It can keep them from moving forward and reaching their goals. It is a death killer to dreams.

But what I’ve learned from so called failure, is that there isn’t such a thing as failure at all. If you take the lessons from what has occurred, you will learn that those lessons were mandatory, even essential to get you where you needed to go.

 

monique-manigault-gift-of-failure
 

The world calls it a failure. I call it a fantastic opportunity to succeed, because you got another necessary piece to the puzzle for what is required.

When I think about all of the things I would not be doing today, if I allowed so called failures to stop me, I could weep. I could weep, because it would have been such a disruption to my life’s plan.

All of those alleged failures were part of God’s plan for me. If I had given up long ago, I would have self-sabotaged my own divine destiny.

I often think about all of those who have somehow sabotaged or delayed their own life’s blessings, because they believed they somehow failed and they allowed it to stop them.

You cannot allow failure to block you, nor stop you. You have to simply adjust, course correct and continue moving ahead.

 

monique-manigault-gift-of-failure
 

The best course in life to succeed is to abandon daily what is no longer working for you. Try out a new way of being, a new way of doing and see what results are produced.

You want to fail yourself forward and do it often, because every time you do it and there’s an alleged failure, you have the necessary information you need to go even further than you did the last time.

And before you know it, if you keep pressing forward, you will ultimately, undoubtedly cross your ultimate finish line.

The Misconception of Failure

The Misconception of Failure

Many of you who have heard me speak know that I had been greatly affected financially (like so many Americans) by what is now termed, “The Great Recession.” As a real estate attorney, broker, investor and developer, I was hit very hard by the real estate bust.

I was speaking with a new client yesterday and she was sharing with me how deeply affected she was by that time and how it makes her feel like a failure. That sentiment is shared by many and the affects from the recession are still very present in the lives of many Americans today. It has been a reoccurring theme I’ve been hearing a lot lately from clients and just from people in general which moved me to write about it today.

So, I just want to share with you what I shared with the client that I spoke to last night.

 

monique-manigault-on-failure
 

Failure and disappointment is something I’ve talked about repeatedly on Women on the Move. Although, I myself don’t even believe in so called “failures,” I do understand that the vast majority of people think in those terms. I happen to believe that every life experience comes to teach us a lesson. And if the lesson is learned from the experience, how could it possibly be deemed a failure? But for the purpose of this blog post, I will use the word failure in the way it is most commonly used.

Having obstacles and challenges to overcome in this life do not make you a failure.

You must pick up the coat of failure and put it on to claim it. It is not mandated for you.

You have to take the lessons that come from them, dust yourself off and push yourself forward. You can’t imprison yourself in a space and place that doesn’t allow you to move forward, because that just doesn’t serve you.

 

monique-manigault-on-failure
 

So, if you are in that place and space, whatever the failure in your mind may be, you must release it. It could be a perceived failure in a business, relationship, situation or a dream. I now ask you to let that perceived failure go. Take a moment to grieve it, if you so need. Cry, scream, get angry, write your feelings and disappointments down, do whatever you need to do to release it and then very simply – let it go. You must let it go.

Because if you don’t let it go, it will haunt you and it will destroy anything, and everything, you attempt to do moving forward. There’s a great quote by Iyanla Vanzant that says, “until you heal the wounds of your past, you will continue to bleed.” And it will bleed in ways that you don’t even know. It will bleed into and onto things that you will be totally and completely unconscious about.

 

monique-manigault-on-failure
 

So, my prayer for you is that you learn to let it go and instead of sitting in the pain of that perceived failure and disappointment, you courageously get up, run on and proceed to your next level of being. I will be praying for you to get there and holding space for you there until you do.
