When The Outcome Isn’t What You Wanted, But Better – Transcript
Hello, Radiant One and a very big and a very warm welcome to today’s episode in which we’re going to be diving deep into being open to a different possibility or a different end result than the one you were actually perhaps, necessarily to start with, looking for.
This is inspired by a recent episode that I had. For a few months, I’ve been working with a client. When she came to me, she was overworked. She was stressed out and she was really wanting to expand – or she thought she wanted to expand her own business.
She works with challenged young children and young teenagers. She was wanting to explore the opportunity or the possibility of expanding her business so that she would become a solopreneur and be by herself and work by herself and just have her own business and not be employed.
Getting Clear is Key
So in that process, one of the things that we always do is we get very, very clear on what is it that you truly want. One of the benefits of getting clear is not only knowing what you truly want but also for God, the universe, source, whatever you want to call it to actually deliver what you truly want.
As we were going through this process, her initial goal was to be on her own to start expanding her business. That is what we were working toward, supporting her in getting more clients, more exposure, and so forth. However, during one of the sessions, what I heard was that there seemed to be something else. There seemed to be more that she actually wanted.
Stay Open and Explore
So rather than just stay focused or fixed on one thing, thinking, “Oh, this is it. We’re just going to run with that” – I invited her to be open to the possibility or the opportunity of something more or something different.
During one of our sessions, what actually came through was how her – when she envisioned what she envisioned and when she saw when she went deep and was in her true self and satisfied was not that she was working on her own but it was actually to have a place, to have a school for these challenged children and young adults and to be part of a team that supported them, to work with specific methods, to receive supervision, and to expand.
Notice the shift in your energy
What was so interesting – and this is one of the things that I want you to take away from this episode – is that notice the difference when you speak or in your body because when something truly tickles your soul and fills your heart with joy, there is an excitement.
There is a joy.
There is a satisfaction.
There is a rush that comes up in you and that cannot be ignored. That’s really where the soul that you are, the spirit within, begins to flow abundantly and be excited.
Notice your vibration and the way you speak
So that’s one of the signs. So if you’re someone who’s in your dream, if you’re working on something, notice how you speak to your friends or your co-workers or your relations.
Notice the difference in your – I want to say vibration because it is truly a difference in vibration. One is exciting and lifting you up and the other is more flat and not necessarily very vibrant or alive.
Play with it
So like I said, in our session what I noticed was that that seemed to be going on. So I had her define what is it – if you were – we’re just playing a game.
If you were to have this thing, what would that look like?
So she made a full list of the values, the amount of people she wanted to work with, the amount of children, the kind of place that it was, where it was in terms of far out in the country. All of these things, we made sure to put in place.
When You Get Clear, Stars Align
What happened was about, I don’t know, probably about a month or so later, a month and a half perhaps?
Also, I want to say, during this process what I had her do was I had her reach out to other people who had started these kinds of places to kind of see if they would be willing to share with her their experience, their knowledge, their challenges so she could get an idea and an understanding for what was required.
Because as much as I am positive, optimistic person, as heavily, deeply connected to love that I am, I am not one of those business coaches who will have you jump off a cliff without checking and making sure that everything is “in order.” Of course, there comes a time where you have to take the leap and that’s filled with excitement as well and sometimes also fear.
But in order to really set yourself up most for success the best way possible, check things out.
Like I said, for her, it was about getting in contact with people who’d done what she was actually considering and walk in open, with an open mindset and open eyes and not be blindly just thinking that all is well and also knowing what kind of budget and money you needed in place and so forth, the funding and so forth.
The Universe Conspiring
So like I said, about a month and a half later I think it was, one of her former colleagues called her and said “there’s this job at the place that I’m working at and I want you to apply for it.”
She was in her current job overworked and stressed out and she hadn’t really thought about getting another job because she thought that she was going to do the solo entrepreneur thing. She thought that was what she was doing – her own business…
Initially, she wasn’t really interested but they kept pushing and so she took a look at it and the thing is, from what she could see from the outside, it basically matched everything that she had put together in our sessions in terms of a list of what she wanted, like the size of the place, the location of the place, the values and the foundation.
Everything seemed to be the exact same which was kind of like, “What?”
Then she chose to send in an application and, long story short, after two job interviews, she was hired as a manager. It’s a manager position; she is in a leadership position. Basically, what this is is that she got clear. She got very clear on what she wanted and she was also courageous enough to actually follow my guidance and move into an area that was very initially scary to her because knowing that this is your dream, you also then get the “there’s no turning back.”
When You Get Clear, Fear Can Kick In
Once you get clear on what it is that you want, there’s really no turning back. That’s where fear can kick in. So we worked through that.
She got the job and in her interviews with the place, all of the values and all of the focus, the principles that they’re teaching and so forth, everything is aligned with her.
Expansion is a ripple effect from within
Now, you may be saying, “Okay, well, it wasn’t her dream to be a solopreneur.” That’s what she thought. She thought she wanted her own business and that’s not out of the question.
Actually, what I see is that I see it as an expansion. She expanded. She’s expanding and the universe has now provided her with the most perfect opportunity, the most perfect divinely-aligned learning opportunity to be able to really dig in and see what is required, to know the budget, to know – this is a place that’s not near her home so this is something that she’ll be able to – maybe she’ll be there for 3 to 5, 10 years. Maybe she’ll be there the rest of her career.
Stay Open to a different Outcome
But I hope that this serves as a reminder to you that – to stay open to the ways that the universe is trying to deliver what you really want to you. So that you may think that your starting point is this but as you dig deep and as you gain clarity, there may be other things that come up along the way and I encourage you to explore those with an open mindset so that you’re able to allow yourself to have basically the universe deliver your perfect situation, your dream job, your dream business.
Whatever it is, stay open.

Stay Open and Connected
So this is what I want to leave you with: Stay open. Stay connected and continue your investigation and your questioning of if something comes up for you, then make sure that you actually take a look and see, allow it to give you the wisdom that it’s there for you to give and really allow for it to move you forward into your next step.
Let me hear from you
I want to know have you had this experience? Have you had this experience where you started thinking that this is the way that I’m going and then in uncovering and following that path, something shifted and you actually knew, “Okay, this is not the direction. This is the other direction” and that was actually the most satisfying, nourishing thing for you.
