Surrender is one of the most important tools to master in creating a life you love.
When I began to do the important work of stripping away the familial and cultural beliefs that were keeping me in a life that I was okay with, but not thrilled about, I began to change. I expressed myself in different ways. I sang while doing the dishes. When I began to change the people around me got scared. They didn't know if they would like the new me even though I assured them I wasn't any different on the inside - I was just expressing what was on the inside on the outside now. The result was that I lost my relationship one of the men I admire most in this world. That's not entirely true, because we do still talk, but we aren't dating.
One of the most common questions I get in my coaching practice is "What do I do with my relationships when I start to change and I can feel my loved ones resistance?"
2 simple steps:
1. DONT cut people out. You don't need to DO anything. Don't cut people out (unless they are abusive). You will "vibrate" right out of your life if they need to go. You won't be able to stop this if you wanted to. They will have to evolve to keep up with you.
2. DO focus. Focus on what you are creating with a tenacious passion. Learn what you need to learn. Life energy goes where your attention flow. Take your eyes off what's not working and follow your curiosity to grow.
Compassion + Integrity = Powerful Leadership - What's your vision for the world?
