And let go to hold on.
This happened yesterday…
You don’t have to turn yourself inside out in public. You don’t have to spill the gory details of your life all over social media….especially if it compromises the privacy of others.
But if you want to break through to real success – not just fantasize about it – you have to dig deep into your inner self. Your history. Your mistakes. Your triumph. Your love. Your hate. Your passion.
You have to take it all with you, and let it go at the same time…so you can create room for all the great stuff that comes next.
We all have our baggage. Things we carry around, even if we’ve mostly come to terms with the bad stuff.
And we all want to be recognized for our achievements. We all to say, “Look At Me! Look At Me!” when we did something good. We want our head patted, maybe in a way we didn’t get when we were kids.
I get it.
The problem is, when that’s what you ask for, you’re identifying yourself as someone who’s still needy.
And people don’t follow needy people.
Correction: the only people who follow needy people are other needy people.
And they aren’t really following them.
They’re just looking for someone they can have a “needy party” with.
(That’s very similar to a “pity party.”)
You have to let go of the pain.
That means you have to feel good, then deal with the pain when it comes up.
(That’s one of the first things we focus on in How To Receive.)
You have to acknowledge it.
Then celebrate the fact that you moved through it.
Don’t lock it away.
Let people know you’re real, and vulnerable. Let them feel safe with you.
Let them trust you to get them where they want to go.
That happens when you hold onto the journey…
But let go of the details.
So that new and better stuff can come in.
And that is something fun to share with the world!
Have you held onto pain longer than it’s served you?
Have you broadcast private details of your life that are no one else’s business?
Have you gotten over the bad stuff and become someone fun, and powerful?
