So often the greatest advice is either so simple that we’re embarrassed we made seeking a solution so complex, or the advice is counter-intuitive and you would have never thought of it.
Today I’ll take counter-intuitive for $200 Alex.
When we surrender, something beautiful happens. We actually give ourselves permission to be our most authentic selves and the byproduct of surrendering just happens to be success.
When we surrender we allow something magnificent to work through us and that’s when the magic happens. So as you continue to do the work that you were put on this earth to do, or if you’re struggling to just let go, be yourself, or even just give the new person you’re dating a total glimpse into your true essence. My advice to you…surrender.
And for my spiritual friends, “let go and let God.”
Sounds selfish. Counter-intuitive. Genius.
It’s quite simple really. Take care of yourself and you can give so much more.
We need you to use your superpowers on a daily basis. We need you to show up as your best you everyday. You can’t do this if you are not taking care of yourself. I’ve had to learn this the hard way. Giving giving giving. Burning out and then not being able to enjoy the fruits of all this gracious labor.
If you don’t put yourself at the top of your priority list, you’ll get to a point where you’re not showing up well-rested, energized, and ready to use your superpowers for maximum impact. You’ll show up tired, dragging, potentially irritable and this is a dangerous combination; especially if your labor is out of love and for a cause greater than yourself. It’s not about you…or is it?
Don’t cheapen your gift. Take care of yourself.
Is this easier said than done? Yes.
But I never said it would be easy.
