Motivational Monday: Learning to Let Go

Learn to let go. Most of us want to be in control of every little peace of our lives, from how we look, to how others perceive us. Trying to mold the world to your will can drain your happiness, cause unneeded stress, and even alienate the people around you. If you find yourself faced with this dilemma the best thing you can do is surrender. Let go of the control and start to bring joy and fun back into your life.

Wish Them Well!

You need positive energy to attract success into your life, so stop comparing yourself to your coworkers or friends.  Constant comparisons with your friends or coworkers can hinder your own triumphs. Instead of harboring ill feelings toward that coworker you think stole your promotion, or your friend who is happily married while you are single and having a little bad luck in the romance department, wish them well. I know this can be hard, heck it can be downright impossible at times. If your situation falls into the later, just fake it.  Even if you don’t really want to wish them well, just saying the words will create a positive energy you need to attract success into your life.

Don’t Force It!

Sometimes, no amount of  brainstorming or analyzing can further your cause.  When this happens, don’t force it. Forcing things only leads to distress. Instead of fuming or ruminating when you hit a bump in the road, sit back, take a deep breath, and assess the situation at hand while feeling calm and collected. Begin to ask yourself what can be done to further your cause and how else can you address the situation at hand. Listen to your inner voice and follow those gut feelings as they may help you tune into a solution that has previously been beyond your reach.

Don’t Hold Back!

Sometimes we tend to see crying as a weakness so we hold back the tears.  Or we are afraid to open up the floodgates by allowing ourselves to have a good cry so we hold back the tears. Whatever the reason, don’t hold back anymore. Tears are healthy and healing.  Tears are your body's way of releasing stress, sadness, grief, and anxiety.  Letting go of pent up emotional and physical tension will help you to resolve and avoid being consumed by whatever pain you may be feeling.

Take a Time Out!

Life is hectic and most of us feel as though we don’t have time for anything else.  When life is this busy, your body needs a time out now and then to recharge and renew both energy and enthusiasm. Try a mediation exercise during this time out. Take a deep breath, close your eyes, and focus on a relaxing image for three minutes.  Carry this image with you throughout the day to bring feelings of peace to help you relax throughout the day.
