Only a fools expect to get ahead with anchors tied to their feet. But, everyday, we cling to beliefs and behaviors that prevent success.
Success requires letting go. Because you are a human being, you have the potential to do and to be many different things. However, though it’s true you can do anything, you can’t do everything. Every life decision that you make is not just saying yes to the future you want to create but also no to the many other futures that you might have otherwise created.
Before you fly, there are some anchors to release:
Release the anchor of expecting ease. Make life easier for others; service has value when it meets pressing needs or makes life better for others.
Release the anchor of holding on to offenses. People disappoint. People won’t notice some of the great stuff you do. You might not get the credit, even though you did most of the work. You might think, “If they’re not going to appreciate me, I’m not going to give my best.” Who is harmed by that approach? You might as well fill your pockets with rocks.
Release the anchor of waiting for the perfect moment. Step out before things are “just right.” Imperfect progress trumps the myth of perfection every time.
Summing-up: By letting it go it all gets done. The world is won by those who let it go. But when you try and try, the world is beyond the winning.
