I’m sure that you have noticed that I sometimes write about more obscure topics. Some would call it the touchy-feely stuff.
In my career as a CA(SA), in many roles and in many different businesses I eventually considered the possibility that there could be ‘forces’ out there directing me to the places and the people who will teach me the lessons that I need to learn in order to get to the next level.
In your current job, you might be experiencing difficulties. There could be a person who is really getting to you. Or you maybe you are experiencing unnecessary obstacles.
There is a lesson to be learnt. And it might not be so obvious! In my experience it was only when I looked back at situations that I was able to see what I needed to learn. That person who I really despised actually turned out to be my biggest gift.
If only I had known what was being presented to me I might have made it through much quicker, with less effort and been a lot wiser. Certainly the whole process could have been quite different. But who knows?
What comes to mind?
Gratitude, grace and trust!
