Lead, Letting Go, Level, Live, Long-Lasting
Do you dare to risk letting go and starting anew? Holding on to what’s no longer there holds too many of us back. Some of us spend the majority of our lives recounting the past and letting it steer the course of the present. Don’t waste your time trying to live in another time and place. Let the past go! You must accept the end of something in order to begin to build something new. So close some old doors today. Shut them not because of pride, inability or egotism, but simply because you’ve entered each one of them in the past and realize that they do not lead to where you wish to go.
When we continue to repeat a story in our head, as all of us do, we eventually believe that story and embrace it, whether it empowers us or not. So the question is: Does your story empower you? Don’t place your past mishaps on your mind and keep replaying them. Their weight may crush your current potential. Instead, place them under your feet and use them as a platform to view the horizon. Remember, all things are difficult before they are easy. What matters the most is what you start doing now.
