Knowing It’s Good When It Looks Bad

Knowing It’s Good When It Looks Bad

You’ve been fired. You didn’t get the job offer. You didn’t get the promotion. You're new boss is crazy or inexperienced. You lost the big client. You’ve been laid off.

None of these situations are easy situations but every single one of them has a common denominator: any one of them could happen to any one of us.

Why do bad things happen to good people? You might get closer to the answer in a powerful book, "Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill.

I did.

In the early 1900’s, Napoleon Hill was asked by  Andrew Carnegie  to interview the wealthiest and most powerful people on earth and to identify the indisputable traits that led to their success. Napoleon Hill spent 20 years of his life writing, " Think and Grow Rich ." Napoleon discovered that all successful people faced failure, disaster, setbacks, disappointments, and losses just  before  they achieved major success, and  successful people understand the following:

What appears to be failure, disappointment, disaster, or loss is actually an enormous opportunity being presented to you!

Successful people know how to trust the “success process” by pushing harder during setbacks or failures and staying in a state of “knowingness” and excitement. Successful people have learned that what appears on the surface to be a bad situation is actually a huge opportunity. Even if they can’t yet see it, successful people know something great is about to happen, so they stay the course.

You may not be able to understand why you didn’t get that promotion or why you got fired from a job when you tried so hard. That’s because the big picture simply hasn’t been revealed to you yet.


Right now, all you can see is what’s visible to you. You don’t see what is happening on an energetic and "vibrational" level. In other words...

  • You can’t see the great job coming to you in two months that you would have never applied to had you not been laid off.

  • You can’t see how...by being fired and with no options in front of you, it pushes you to start your own company which will take off like wildfire and a year from now, you’ll be earning twice the income.

  • You can’t see how by being laid off, your company will send you to an outplacement firm where you attend a job search group and are introduced to the love of your life.

  • You can’t see the chain reaction of not getting the big client; where you have no choice but to work harder to bring in a smaller client who, four months from now, merges with a major corporation and poses twice the revenue for your company as the client you lost.

Keep Calm

None these things are on your visual radar, but if you trust the process and think like successful people think, you’ll get excited when “bad” things happen because what looks bad now might actually be even better for you in the long run!

Make this your mantra:

“I don’t know why, and I don’t know how, but I just know that everything is going to work out to my advantage.”

Say this over and over and believe it with every fiber of your being and watch the magic happen in your life.

Saying this daily with positive feeling and emotion behind it will trigger a massive energetic domino effect in your life. You don't have to know how things will work out to your advantage. You simply need to believe that they will.

“Successful people are not people without problems. They are people who have just learned how to overcome their problems.” ~Earl Nightingale

I hope you will read, " Think and Grow Rich ,"  by Napoleon Hill . It is a book deeply discussed in a 13 CD Success Audio Book called, " Your Wish Is Your Command ,"  which I also highly recommend. If you can’t find the CD’s online, you can download them directly from my Dropbox at bit.ly/yourwishr
