It happens to most of us ... those moments in our day, week, month, or year ... where we feel like a failure, living an unfulfilled life, living for 'someday'. Even with all the successes we may have achieved, we can still feel disappointed in ourselves and in our life.

Let me tell you friends, most of us cross this bridge at some point in time, and some of us cross this bridge more than once. At the time of moving through this phase in life, it feels pretty rotten but once we push through and come out the other side, we see how the experience has actually stretched us and taken us to new heights.

These moments usually happen unexpectedly. In fact, for most of us, they happen just when we think we've got life figured out and in the palm of our hands. Out of nowhere, we're thrown a curve ball with something completely unexpected that drastically changes our life path and puts us out in left field where we feel alone, abandoned, useless, unimportant, washed up, and old.

Usually at those times, we're pretty good at concealing our troubles from the people around us, and many looking in from the outside may think we're living the dream because they too are going through troubled waters.

Here's the secret when we're feeling this low - it may take some time before we even realize we've reached one of these moments in life - but when we do, it's actually time to celebrate and tune in to our inner-selves. These negative feelings are actually signals from our inner being that we are not living our destiny. That somehow we have put everyone and everything else before our own needs to the point of neglecting the dreams we have for ourselves.

When we awaken to this moment, it's time hit the reset button. In moments where we feel like 'something is missing', this is the time for self-reflection - a time to stop, close our eyes, centre our thoughts, silence the negative voices in our mind, and breathe ... just breathe ... start focusing on the positive, have faith in ourselves and believe in our destiny.

We need to look at what we have accomplished, what is working, what we have done right, the people we have helped along the way. We need to be thankful for the blessings we have received and we need to go deep within ourselves to ignite our creative energy and entrepreneurial mindset - to dream and have a big vision for our life.

No matter where we are in our life, it is always important to remember:
