Most of us want better results in one or more facets of our lives.
The latest step I’m taking to generate improved results on my authentic journey is to stop trying.
What does this mean?
- It means replacing planned effort with inspired action every chance I get, in every facet of my life.
- It means putting “logic” in the passenger seat and allowing heartfelt knowing to drive my actions.
- It means noticing and responding to feelings of dread, drudgery, and resistance as soon as they show up. They are sure signs that I’m pushing a contrived agenda or taking unaligned action.
- It means repeatedly releasing habitual inner critic “should’s” that are frequently reinforced by all sorts of external influences.
- It means noticing and nurturing the sense of freedom, flow, ease, and momentum that arises when no force is required.
- It means celebrating the exceptional outcomes ~ whether they are small, medium, or large ~ generated when I remove the tension of trying.
Above all, it means trusting my deepest desires, trusting myself, and trusting the process no matter what the situation.
As with most things, letting go and generating desirable results is a process. It takes time. It takes effort. You have to open yourself to a playful approach that includes lots of trial and error. You must relax into your best choices and your desire for more freedom and flexibility in your life.
For me all of this is a work in progress, and I’m fine with that. I’m committed to making this refinement in my life because every time I get a taste of what it’s like to be authentically free, I’m more convinced than ever that trying is not the optimal way. It never has been and it never will be.
So, do you want better results in one or more facets of your life? If your answer is yes, give yourself a break, show a little grace. Stop trying.
