Get rid of the old to make room for the new. You have heard that phrase before, probably many times. If you have attended one of my workshops the concept will be familiar. It is easy to say but not as simple to truly apply the principles. It takes practice.
It’s when your faith is tested that you need the most support. It is when you truly have to persevere and stand by your convictions. In these moments it seems that your principles appear to fail. When you need to persevere, to live your convictions, and ultimately in doing so our faith increases based on results.
Are you able to do this? Because it is so easy to fall back into old ways when you are thrown a curveball, challenged, or worse when you experience a disaster in your life.
Resilience in the Face of Disaster
I know this from one of my life experiences. On October 8, 2012, I woke to a fire in my home. The flames were contained in our garage, and all lives were spared. However, we lost all of my father-in-law’s life history as we had stored it in the garage since his passing on Sept. 10, among many other precious items of our own. While our home still stands, the smoke damage was so significant we have had to move out while the repairs/remodel is completed.
On that morning as the fire department put out the fire I stood on my driveway watching and one message came to mind: “get rid of the old to make room for the new”. It was a sign, to remember my teachings. Only when we rid ourselves of that which no longer serves us, are we able to move forward to our future success!
Are you willing and able to look at that which fails to serve you and rid yourself of it to achieve the success you desire? Or are you determined to hang on to the past, dwell in the comfort zone that is society’s pressure? OR are you ready to boldly go after what is rightfully yours and live your purpose in this world!
Your Life, no one else’s…think about it. Let me know if I can help.
