Letting Go, Momentum Monday #EP22
What is success?
Is it the next big item, the bigger home, the faster car?
I thought it was.
I finally got everything I ever wanted, to realize that actually… it’s not REALLY what makes me happy or what I wanted.
After lots of self discovery, deep work, spending hours and hours in silence and finally having the courage to admit the truth… I was shown a new reality that is far more simplistic and aligned with who I really am, not who I thought I was.
I came to realize that my next huge leap of success won’t come from adding, but from from letting go and shedding.
Shedding what was wanted by my mind, not by my soul.
It’s time for me to let go, to grow.
To release energetic drains that look great, but aren’t aligned with me at my core.
When I felt what my SOUL was calling for vs what my ego craved, everything clicked.
I also decided to let go of expectations of others….
The need for other people to be where I was at. And if they didn’t want to go there, they were being lazy.
This stopped me from connecting with more people. Amazing people who wren’t ‘on my level’.
It’s sad to write this, but it’s the truth.
I also realized that all of the time I’m tense, in stress or overwhelm or worry, the universe stops gifting me what I really need. It pauses.
When I release and let go. When I focus on the now and not needing to know what tomorrow brings, whatever I need shows up.
Since this shift I have removed the fear of loss, because Im happy to strip everything back.
Because I found Simon.
The Simon before he was bullied and and didn’t speak up for himself.
The Simon who told himself lies about what he needed to become to be loved.
The Simon who is confident in himself without having to prove himself to anyone else.
The Simon who values experiences that cost little, that have high impact.
The Simon that has nothing to prove.
And it’s not that this Simon doesn’t want to run a business, or to make money, it’s just the the focus has changed.
The energy has shifted and I can finally relax.
It’s taken time, it’s taken investing in myself, it’s taken deep work.
But finally it clicked and now I’m letting go of so much, and trusting in what is to come.
I’ve never felt more freedom, more peace and more self love. It’s like the entreprenenial pressure valve has been released and I can start a new life.
I would encourage you to think about what you can let go of this week.
Maybe it’s an item, a story, a relationship that’s draining you.
Something that feels heavy. Anything you don’t absolutely love.
Most of all, have an amazing week.
