Its often been said that “letting go” is one of the hardest things we can do in life, period.
Letting go of old “hurts”. Letting go of old – and toxic – relationships, or baggage of other nature.
Letting go of those in current relationships that “aren’t for us”. Letting go of negative emotions … and so forth.
You get the picture I’m sure.
We all hear this talk about “letting go” so often that it’s probably embedded in a very prominent area of our CONSCIOUS minds – and yet, precious few of us actually “let go” of any of the above.
All those memories I spoke about are stored in the subconscious, and our minds being what they are, those negative memories are played by default UNLESS you CONSCIOUSLY choose to play and replay the POSITIVE memories (and feel the positive emotions associated with them) repeatedly over and over again!
Napoleon Hill mentioned this in his timeless classic “Think and Grow Rich”. He likened our subconscious minds to a fertile garden where seeds of any nature may be planted – positive or negative – and the results will “sprout” accordingly whether we consciously believe this or not.
Additionally, he goes on to say that our minds are programmed to “accept” the negative by default – and therefore, one must work extra hard to make sure that the POSITIVE is ALL that is being fed to the subconscious on a daily basis!
This is accomplished by the “tap tap repetition” that Claude Bristol correctly spoke of in his great little book “The Magic of Believing”.
And VISUALIZATION, my friend – and going into your memory banks daily, regularly and on a conscious basis is KEY to “collating” all the above into a form your subconscious can understand, emotionalize, and therefore readily PROCESS.
Now, how does “letting go” fit into all this?
Ok, I’ll explain.
So you’ve done all the right things. You’ve set goals. You’re working towards them in the right spirit – doing things a certain way.
You eagerly expect the goal to manifest – – but for whatever reason, it doesn’t – – and sometimes not in the timeframe you “eagerly” expect it to.
And then you start getting frustrated. Is all of this really true, you ask yourself?
Slowly, the seeds of disbelief are planted in your mind. One seed of disbelief is enough to overpower all the other positivity (think of a bad apple ruining the lot, and you’ll get the photo).
And before you know it you’re back to square one or close to it.
You wouldnt, though if you had just LET GO of the goal after doing everything else.
When you have a certain goal – something that you really, really, REALLY want – we have a tendency to attach “timelines” to it and certain “conditions” to it.
For instance, you might expect that six pack by a certain day if you’re doing 0 Excuses Fitness day in and day out.
You might expect a ton of moolah landing on your desk by “so and so date” in “so and so form” – and truth be told, this can very well happen if you visualize correctly – but what ends up happening is folks get “over attached to the goal”, and this sends out a feeling of “need” to the Universe – as opposed to “want”.
And poof goes the goal.
Once you set a goal – you do all the right things – but then you leave it up to the Universe in terms of “how” it’ll deliver that goal to you!
Let me give you an example – a few months ago, for whatever reason, I was craving pizza.
A nice, juicy pizza with LOADS of cheese on it. Pepperoni. Extra large. The works. You get it, I’m sure.
It was something that I really wanted – and yet, after visualizing this for a while deeply, I didn’t think about it all day. I didn’t think about “when I’d get it”.
It had nothing to do with money – or the lack of it – or the abundance of it – or anything remotely related to money for that matter.
Yet, for whatever reason I wanted it.
A few days after doing this visualization, guess what happened.
One of my good friends called me up, and invited me over for a pizza — completely out of the blue!
The pizza was extra large. Had all the cheese I wanted and then some. Even had some super tasty garlic DIP to go with it – – and plenty of pepperoni as well. In short, my dream pizza – which materialized with me literally doing very little except for visualizing it, and …
… letting GO of it once I was done visualizing!
And lest you think this is a one off, think again.
I didn’t visualize this again, and yet, over the next couple of months, MORE friends invited me for pizza – the SAME pizza – out of the BLUE – without me doing anything at all to “move towards that goal!”
Now, am I saying you have a goal and just sit and do nothing to work towards it?
Quite the contrary, my friend.
If you’re looking to lose weight, you pound out the squats as I tell you to do in the 0 Excuses Fitness System right HERE – http://0excusesfitness.com/0excusesfitnessystem/
As Emerson said, you do the thing – and you’ll have the power.
If you’re looking to get better at pull-ups, you grab a copy of my bestselling “Pull-ups – from DUD to STUD within a matter of WEEKS” – and you get cranking.
Ditto for anything else you’re looking to achieve … BUT .. after doing all the above, you don’t stress about “if” it’ll happen or “an exact time” when it’ll happen.
If you do all the things – the right things – in a certain WAY – then happen it will, my friend.
And chances are excellent and SECOND to none that you’ll get MORE than what you wanted – just as in the “pizza” example I gave you above.
The Universe doesn’t lack, my friend. In fact it doesn’t even know such a word exists. And it’ll give you all the abundance you want if you just take a step back – let go – and be prepared to RECEIVE!
So that’s today’s tip – and something to work towards as well. Letting go, my friend – is KEY to achievement in any sphere of life – never forget that!
P.S. – One thing you really don’t want to let go of is your copy of Corrugated Core once its in your hands. The results you’ll achieve from this little monster are truly spectacular, my friend. Your neighbors will soon be asking you what you do to get results in such a short period of time – and rather than “let go” of your copy – direct them to the sales page right here – – http://0excusesfitness.com/corrugated-core/
P.S #2 – Some of you have asked for videos with regard to pull-ups. I might look into putting these on the members area – stay tuned!
