Episode 402: The Heartbreak of Unexpected Change

mindset Apr 25, 2024

In today’s episode, I share my personal journey through a profound realization that led to a heartbreak; however, not the the kind you usually associate with heartbreak. It wasn’t a romantic breakup, but a business one that resulted in a significant professional and personal shift. 

Initially contemplating this topic, I decided to draw guidance from energy oracle cards, and the card drawn — an upside down 'broken heart' — was a true sign that this story of renewal and hope after an unexpected and painful discovery.

I recount my past four and a half years being heavily invested, both financially and emotionally, in an online business community led by a mentor I deeply admired. However, disillusionment struck as I discovered inconsistencies between the mentor's portrayed values and reality. This revelation forced me to reassess my path, leading to disengagement from the community and mentor that once defined a significant part of my identity and purpose.

Throughout the episode, I delve into the process of realignment with my values, the importance of maintaining objectivity, and the necessity of being open to diverse opportunities and perspectives. Sharing the three lessons I re-learned as I move forward with my personal journey.

By openly sharing my personal story of heartbreak, transition, and eventual resurgence, I aim to inspire you to embrace change, trust your journey, and remain true to yourself. Let this episode serve as an example to all that every experience, especially the most challenging ones, is an opportunity for growth and renewal. Join me as I discuss the complexities of unexpected change and the lessons most of us need to be reminded of again and again.
