Surrender and let go of all your expectations when they are not met so they don't translate into criticism for yourself and others. Sometimes, we are critical of where we are today without being mindful to how much further we can still go. Often times we are more critical than our supporters around us. Have you felt yourself fall short of huge goals? Immediately shift your focus to other moments when you've felt confidant with your accomplishments (it's all mental). We need to make sure that through it all, we trust the process or we let go and move on. If we make every failure so hard and miserable on ourselves, then is it really worth it to succeed? If there’s one thing I learned, its that it’s not that serious although we seriously need to hold ourselves accountable. Whatever the circumstances, you can make it worse and stress yourself out or you can welcome new beginnings and embrace the current situation at hand. When we stop for a moment when we are at a crossroad, it’s best we choose to either:
There comes a time to stop yourself and surrender, when you need to let go of an idea, thought, product, stressful relationship and move on. From my experience, my persistent nature will naturally want to continue to try over and over again. I have learned that while persistence makes me a great entrepreneur, I need to be mindful of evidence, evaluate situations, and STOP and pivot where necessary. To put it simply, we all want to get to where we “need to be” and it takes a series of moving on from current situations. Or we stay grounded and hang on tight, and find comfort even where our circumstance seems unstable or unbearable. We do this in order to get somewhere better. Yoga has also taught me this; to surrender and feel my pose; to be grounded and confidant. Be okay with whatever progress you have made and keep going if it makes sense. Or surrender where you are so you can evaluate where you are going and better vision what you need to do to get there– or somewhere else.
Often times we feel we aren’t doing enough so we criticize our journey and worse, we don’t even give ourselves a chance to reach our best. When something goes wrong, it’s best we learn to surrender or pivot. Move on when we need to and hypothesize something that will get us closer to our next beginning. It’s not that serious (you’re decision, your pivot, your current circumstance). We need to learn to welcome new beginnings to get to the one.
