We have to give our clients, as well as our PPVE enrollees, a lot of credit. If we didn’t get to talk to them every week, we wouldn’t have nearly so many things to write about. They’re constantly sparking new ideas!
The inspiration for this week’s #ClarityGem came straight from an email exchange between Rachel and one of her clients. And to be honest, this is definitely not the first time we’ve heard this …

THIS WEEK, WE WANT YOU TO KNOW:
APPLY IT TO YOUR OWN LIFE:
Ignorance really is bliss, isn’t it? Well actually, we don’t really think so … but, it often looks easier to be less self-aware.
It’s hard to be conscious. It means that when things are going badly, you know you can’t really blame your situation on anyone or everything else. You realize that you’ve got to take responsibility for how you feel and how you react to life.
And when that happens, sometimes you can start to feel a little too responsible. You can start to believe that you’re never allowed to have a bad day, or judge someone, or be in a bad mood, or feel existentially exhausted … because if you’re in charge of how you feel, shouldn’t you always feel good?
Well, no. You’re human. Which means you’re going to have bad days and judgmental moments, and you’re going to take your anger out on someone who didn’t deserve it. But that doesn’t mean you’ve slipped or backtracked.
You’re evolving on your bad days, too. In fact, you might just be learning more from them than anything else.
How have you evolved during your not-so-good days? Let us know!
WHAT #CLARITYGEMS ARE ALL ABOUT:
Sometimes it’s just better to avoid long blog posts and cut straight to the point!
Think of #ClarityGems as your weekly shake of the good ‘ole Magic 8 Ball … you never know what might bubble up and how it might be exactly what you need to hear today.
And instead of just a beautiful, inspirational, and shareable image (which is a nice start), we’re giving you some quick thoughts about how to interpret it … because inspiration without action is pretty, but kind of anti-climatic.
Tweet it, share it on Instagram, or forward it along to someone who needs to hear it today … and tag us (@ClarityonFire) to let us know how this Gem is inspiring you!
