Daily Magic: May 31, 2017 {On Losing To Win}

The love is sweet today, we find practical solutions to problems, and we’ve got new, illuminated insights. But I’m here to tell you that success doesn’t always look like success; in fact, it can be the exact opposite.

Last night I dreamt of organizing a soccer game. A bunch of social outcasts and outliers signed up and I thought, okay, let’s play anyway.

I played the game as hard as I could. But I couldn’t even get the ball. One by one, the other team members quit and walked away. Our team had an open goal and we STILL couldn’t score. I tried over and over and couldn’t get the ball anywhere near the goal. Everyone on my team finally quit too. I woke up feeling completely stressed out and defeated.

The dream tells me that 1) I view myself as an outcast and 2) I can’t win, no matter what I do.

As I pondered the dream, I wondered how I could change my self-view, to see myself as a winner instead of a loser. I had no idea. Then I thought that maybe I WANT to lose. Maybe it’s even OKAY to fail – GOOD even.

This is a deep truth not many are willing to accept, but it brings such a liberating sense of tranquility and bliss when we do. 

Good things happen and bad things happen, to everyone, all the time. Our goal isn’t to make good things always happen. That’s unrealistic. Plus, when we zero in on getting something such as genuine, fulfilling wealth, happiness or love, it becomes elusive – always unattainable.

The real goal is to simply enjoy the game. Or enjoy not playing the game. The older I get, the more I realize we control exactly nothing. It looks like we’re in control, but it’s an illusion.

But if we could let go of expectations and all the pressure? If we can enjoy and see the wonder of each moment as it is? Then we naturally win, all the time.  

May your life be infused with magic and may you truly enjoy your existence. With love, Elizabeth aka Intuitive Fish
