Let go of the life you have plannned
“We must be willing to let go of the life we planned so as to have the life that is waiting for us” Joseph Campbell
We all grow up with certain dreams of what we want our life to be like and then we work, consciously or unconsciously to achieve just that. Thing is how often do we stop what we are doing and ask ourselves is this really what I want? Do I really want to do a 9-5 job and discuss reasons of why I should get a pay raise every year? Or would I be happier if I work for myself and build something from scrap? Whatever it is that you are doing, that you are spending most of your energy in achieving, does it really make you happy? Or is this an outdated dream? maybe you have grown much more, acquired a whole different skill set that you are not paying attention to, dreamt a whole different dream that you blew off as unachievable. Do you stop & take stock of how you are branding and selling yourself – to both yourself and others?
If you did that…. if you stopped and discovered that where you are is not where you want to be …. then how do you move forward? What do you change?
If you had to let go of just one thing today…. what would it be?
