Surrender To Yourself
**Surrender To Yourself**
I heard this quote recently and it has stuck with me. It’s a difficult process to do. “Surrender” requires the act of letting go. To let go we are letting ourselves be vulnerable. Exposing us to experience all emotions whether good or bad. It’s intimidating and scary. Yet it’s the only way for us to truly achieve success.
How do you surrender to yourself in terms of health and fitness?
You have to let go of the excuses. You’re better than them. No matter what your schedule looks like or the hour you have to get up in the morning, you have to be willing to commit to yourself. Know that you’re more important than any excuse. You may feel tired but you’re more important. You may have a busy day, but you’re more important. You may live on a tight budget, but you’re more important. Remember— you’re more important. You’re capable of showing grit and persisting no matter the current circumstance.
How do you surrender to yourself in terms of your career?
Are you happy where you are? Are you passionate about what you do? Are you at the rank or level you want to be? Can you see yourself continuing to grow and learn? If you said no, you need to surrender to your true passion. We all have a limited time on this earth. To be apart of an industry or have a career that doesn’t fill your soul is a waste of your talent. It’s tough to think of switching careers or stepping up your efforts to get the promotion you always wanted. Again, you’re worth it and important enough. Get out of your head and listen to your heart.
How do you surrender to yourself in terms of personal development?
Think of your deepest darkest childhood memory. Have you truly come to terms with it? Have you found the opportunity to process it? These memories are the ones that influence who we are today. The way we view ourselves, our self-talk, and the way we communicate with others is influences by our past. We need to take time to reflect on the experiences and link them to our current mental and emotional state. This is painful and uncomfortable but we will be better for it. Once we know “why” we behave the way we do, we can then begin the process of improving and becoming the best versions of ourselves.
Remember—We Are So Worth It And Important! No matter what the goal is, surrender to yourself and you’ll achieve success.
