In order to have a life you don’t currently have…

… you must be willing to let go of the one you don’t want.

And that my friend is EXACTLY why most folks never achieve success in life.

The truth is that letting go of things that no longer serve you is the best way to create room for the things you desire. Many people find it very hard to let go because they do not want to step out of their comfort zone even if it does not serve them. The reality is the comfort zone is the dead zone, it does not allow you to stretch yourself towards your highest potential.

Some of the most important things that you may need to let go of are:

  • Limiting beliefs about ourselves, whether they were created by us, people around us, or society
  • Procrastination, which is knowing that you should do something, but you don’t. The reason you may not be doing it is because you see doing it as creating more pain than not doing it.
  • Fear of the know and the unknown. Fear of repercussions from others. Fear of being judged, criticized, or rejected.
  • Guilt over hurting someone else. Guilt over disappointing another.

The above among others are reasons that people stay in relationships that devalues them and bring them no fulfillment in life. They make this great sacrifice because they are failing to let go.

Letting go may be a struggle and you may be saying “This sounds great Marilyn, but how do I do that? I have a job, partner, family… and feel stuck”
