When you stop to take a break, watch as you attract new things into your life.
The new thing was just waiting for you to stop long enough to notice.” Lisa Mininni
Several months ago, a colleague mentioned that her clients are running around in many directions. She went on to say that if they took time to focus on their business rather in their business, they would often see the solutions to their most pressing problems.
It reminded me of one of my quotes, “When you stop to take a break, watch as you attract new things into your life. The new thing was just waiting for you to stop long enough to notice.”
If you’ve been on the go-go-go or pushing to force an outcome, I invite you to surrender. I don’t mean give up. An interesting definition of surrender is cease resistance.
Consider that pushing yourself is resisting. Also consider that when you stop to take that vacation, reflect to celebrate your achievements, or surrender (by not always answering your emails or cell phone,) you:
-Open up a flood gate of opportunities
-Give others an opportunity to step up
-Allow a solution you’ve been asking for to show up
Every year in November, I set aside time to work on my business for the next year. I take time off to create a vacuum so that new things show up. During this time, I identify a word that gives a positive context from which to create.
One day, as I sat quiet, the word came to me: strategic. As a result of aligning goals with this word, strategic relationships
-Associations sponsor our events
-Companies engage us to develop their leaders and expand their companies, and
-Strategic referral partners market our programs and services.
For leaders, the word surrender may be cringeworthy. I invite you to consider that surrendering is
• Trusting in your power to create opportunities without having to control it or work harder
• Proceeding even though you don’t see the full path or worked through all of the answers
• Allowing opportunities to unfold
Ask yourself what might open up for you if you surrendered?
