There’s a saying that goes something like this…
The only thing you have to give up to create your new life is your old life.
Therein lies a big problem.
It’s human nature to fear giving up what is stable, secure, and known.
Have you ever had the thought, “I don’t want to sacrifice what I love to eat,” even when you know that to stop eating bad stuff is going to help you lose weight, look great, and feel better?
Have you ever thought, “I don’t want to sacrifice the things I love to do with friends and family, just to build my business,” or “I don’t want to give up my freedom to have this or that.” On the surface these statements can look wise, spiritual, and lovely. It’s good to not push yourself, right? But look more closely at this dynamic. You don’t have to give up all of these things, but the mind tends to think in black and white.
Sacrifice? No way! That is what the mind says more often that we are aware of.
Here’s a simple, quick exercise that can help you not be so scared of sacrificing something from your current life to gain your new, more exciting, abundant life.
You have to give up some old stuff to get new stuff. There’s no way around it. You have to train your body and mind to sacrifice in order to have the magical experiences most people will never have.
This exercise will help and show you that what you think looks like sacrificing and losing something is actually about liberation and gaining.
