“Sometimes surrender means giving up trying to understand and becoming comfortable with not knowing.” — Eckhart Tolle
I used to equate surrender with failure. I used to believe that surrendering made me a victim of life.
I have learned that surrendering is a spiritual experience that allows me to detach with love from the outcomes in my life.
It doesn’t mean I don’t have to work and put in the effort. It doesn’t mean that I become a victim of the universe and I am at the mercy of those around me.
The exact opposite is true. Once I surrender from my believe of what the outcome is for any situation, not personal and professional, I am able to truly be happy and free.
My own life experiences have taught me that if limit myself to what my own mind is capable of I would have missed out on things beyond my wildest dreams.
They say the mind that created the problems you have cannot be the mind that solves those problems for you.
The same is true for knowing the outcome before it becomes a reality. Knowing the outcome you want before it happens limits your ability to receive more than you were ever capable of defining.
Detaching from outcomes also allows you to be present and accept life on life’s terms. This incredible sense of awareness allows you to be open to opportunities that might have never existed before.
Don’t limit yourself and be open to the endless outcomes that exist.
“When you want to make a change, you can lead said change with action or with perception. Which approach you need when depends on who you are, where you are in your life, and who you’re around at the time.”
So, where are in your life today? Who are you today?
Are you ready to start creating a daily gratitude list and being open to seeing the possibilities of your life unfold before you?
Are you ready to stop complaining?
Are you ready to take on your toughest challenges today?
Don’t want for that life altering event to happen to change your life.
Start today with a 5 item gratitude list. Start today with setting 5 intentions.
Don’t let perfect ruin good. Don’t let good ruin doing something.
Enjoy all of life; even your shortcomings. Be grateful for your shortcomings, they’ve molded you into who you are. Perhaps a failure of yours has even led you to your greatest success.
It’s easy to get angry with our shortcomings, to get down, to wish things were different. What’s that going to do? That’s just wasted energy. Use these moments to realize that you’re grateful for these shortcomings. One day these so called shortcomings will help lead you to your fullest potential.
“If your lifestyle does not add to your healing, it will subtract from it.”
Focus on yourself. Experiment. Do not, I repeat, do not be afraid of failure. Failure, like your shortcomings, will be the greatest way to getting to your fullest potential.
