Have you outgrown something that you keep hanging on to?
Sometimes we just do it out of habit.
Other times we feel like we must keep persevering. In our heart of hearts we no longer have the desire to be part of it.
It seems safer to just stay in the comfort zone. Rather than have the courage to leave something behind – move to new territory. Spare the potential conflict. Just stay in ‘vanilla land’ well beyond the use by date. And we all know that is the kiss of death or at least mediocrity.
I’m not suggesting that the minute you find something or someone frustrating or stressful that you move on. But you know when it is time.
If you find consistently something is no longer working. A product or service you have been offering seems to no longer the right thing. And you’ve lost your passion for it. Or a group you are part of is no longer serving you. Or a negative person who takes takes takes and rarely encourages or supports you. Look at those things and do things differently.
A process on the path that usually is preparing you for the next step. When you let go, this creates space. And suddenly other more aligned people. Groups and opportunities come your way.
Some will be ones that will tell you not to do it. Just keep going along the regular path. Often those people are just jealous of the fact you have the guts to move forward.
I’ve gone through many changes. Have had to let go of some things and some people, to be open to new opportunities. That crossed my path that at first seemed odd, now seem so well aligned. What about you?
Be brave. Be yourself. And take all of you out into the world!
