One of the things I don’t do well in my business is delegate.
My brain goes directly to the short-term thinking of “I’ll get it done way faster (and better) if I just do it myself.”
This works in the short run, but in the long run, it isn’t effective at all.
If I invested a little time on the front end to teach someone else how to do the stuff in my business that doesn’t have to be done by me, I’d receive a big return on my time investment.
I could free up hours each week if I could delegate and let go.
I am getting better at this as I work on something else personally.
I have been working on letting go.
I have been surrendering the shit out of my life.
Our failure to delegate is connected to our failure or unwillingness to let go.
If there is one way this divorce has helped me to grow, it’s in the surrender department.
I have surrendered in ways I never dreamed I’d be able to. Ever.
Someday soon I will share a pretty amazing story with you about what happened when I surrendered bigger than I ever have before.
In less than a day, the entire direction of my life changed.
But in order for that to happen I had to surrender, BIG TIME.
It was one of the most uncomfortable and terrifying things I’ve ever done.
I believe the Universe (or God or whatever you want to call it/they/her/him) wants to give you what you need.
But you have to be willing to accept it.
And just as when you say yes to one thing you say no to something else, when you refuse to surrender and let go, then you repel the thing that you really need. The thing that the Universe is ready to give you.
And so often the thing we want is the thing we can’t get because we are grasping so tightly to what we’ve always done or what we thought was the way it was supposed to happen that what we truly need can’t break through all that.
So this is your daily reminder to let go. Release your mental grip on whatever that thing is you can’t really control at all and let things unfold.
I know it’s hard. Believe me.
If you are like me, you might think you know exactly what should happen and how it should happen, and you cling onto that as hard as you can.
But when your mind is laser focused on that thing you are so desperately trying to control, you are completely unreceptive to anything else.
You know what else happens when you surrender?
You can relax.
Your brain can slow down. You aren’t in a constant state of emotional and physical depletion from playing fucking tug of war 24/7.
It’s scary at first, for sure.
But it’s also incredibly therapeutic.
It’s like a literal weight is lifted from your body.
If you are fighting something, clinging to something, trying desperately to control the direction your life takes, consider trying something new.
Consider just letting things unfold.
Stay true to your core. Your center. Your beliefs. Your values.
Focus on what you can control and on doing things that are in line with your core beliefs.
And then let the Universe take care of the rest.
When you manage to do this, you’ll be surprised by the things that happen next.
