Ever have a vision of the way you wanted something to work out…and it didn’t?
Of course you have.
Personally, I’ve had a dream of going dog sledding in the snow. Which hasn’t exactly materialized yet. But a Plan B in that department once yielded an amazing experience that I’ll tell you about in this episode.
Maybe you’ve been forced into a Plan B on a deeper level these days: Your circumstance aren’t the stuff your dreams are made of, you’ve been forced onto an alternate path because of health challenges or your plans have been derailed by someone else’s decisions or circumstances beyond your control. Maybe it’s something as simple as a day at the beach being plagued by bad weather, or as complex as losing a job or an opportunity because of a health crisis—or any kind of crisis.
If so, it’s easy just to give up on your little (or big) vision. But think about this:
Plan B can create opportunity; it can redirect your skills, and it can offer surprises that bring the kind of joy you never imagined.
