It’s Time to Give Up

No, I have not lost my mind. Well, at least not in the way that you might think. You’re probably wondering how I (a person with such a positive and optimistic way of seeing and experiencing life) am suggesting that we give up. The key is in what I’m suggesting that you give up. I’m not suggesting that you give up on your dreams or goals. I’m not suggesting that you give up your personal journey of growth, awareness and development. I’m not suggesting that you give up on yourself. And I’m most certainly NOT suggesting that you give up on your mission. What I AM suggesting is that you figure out what you have to give up in order to live and achieve your mission. In other words, I encourage you to ask, answer and act upon this question:  What do you need to give up in order to have what you want (personally, professionally or both)?

Perhaps your thing to give up is an old habit or go to behavior. Perhaps it’s a mindset that no longer serves you. Perhaps what you need to give up is a person or a relationship. Perhaps it’s a goal that conflicts or at least is not in alignment with your mission. Perhaps it’s as simple as giving up one or more of your too many goals in order to achieve your most important goal. Perhaps, and very likely, it’s a belief you have (often without knowing it) about yourself or about how the world is “supposed” to work or how you’re “supposed” to be. Whatever it is, your most important step towards achieving your dreams, living your mission and having the life you desire likely involves letting go of (i.e. giving up) something that is keeping you from having what you most deeply want to have or achieve.

Ponder this question: What’s the one belief, habit, activity, relationship, behavior, goal or story that you can give up that would have the most positive impact in helping you to achieve your most important dream, goal or mission? Once you have the answer (which may be more challenging than you think), it’s up to you to decide whether you’re ready to give it up in order to achieve your biggest goals and live your mission. Are you ready to give up?
