“I think it’s a universal law that you have to clear space for newness to enter; let something die for something to be born; cleanse to heal; let go to receive. Just like we clear our lungs to take in new air, we need to empty our minds of dull ideas to create brighter lives.”
Lame Ideas, Notions, Concepts, Beliefs & Standards To Let Go of On Your Way To Fulfillment:
1. Let go of promises that you’ve outgrown. If a commitment is keeping you smaller or duller or safer than the person you’ve become, then it’s not serving anyone.
2. Let go of the material shit that you just don’t like. In fact, if you don’t LOVE it, make a plan to get rid of it.
3. For the love of life, let go of the idea that there’s not enough time. You are the source of time in your life.
4. Let go of the belief that you’re not worthy of your desires. You ARE worthy of your desires.
5. Let go of the fear-based notion that you have to say yes to everything in order to be liked, loved, profitable, charitable, kind. Fewer yeses can actually help you be more generous with your giving.
“If we have goals and dreams and we want to do our best, and if we love people and we don’t want to hurt them or lose them, we should feel pain when things go wrong. The point isn’t to live without any regrets, the point is to not hate ourselves for having them… We need to learn to love the flawed, imperfect things that we create, and to forgive ourselves for creating them. Regret doesn’t remind us that we did badly — it reminds us that we know we can do better.” - Kathryn Schulz
The Magic of Making A Start - W.H. Murray / Steven Pressfield
‘Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation) there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would not otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favour all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance which no man would have dreamed would come come his way.’ - W.H. Murray via ‘The War of Art’ by Steven Pressfield
You must have some vision for your life. Even if you don’t know the plan, you have to have a direction in which you choose to go. You want to be in the driver’s seat of your own life because if you are not, life will drive you.
