The definition of the word Surrender is:
“Abandon oneself entirely to (a powerful emotion or influence); give in to.”

Today my question to you is what are you surrendering to? What has power and influence over you that stops you from achieving what it is that you want in life? Is it the feelings and emotions that you can’t get what you want, deserve? Or is it that you’re listening to other people and they are call the shots?

This blog is about finding the answers to those questions and where do you begin. It’s simple, if you think about it, you begin by looking inside of yourself to determine what are you surrendering to? When you close your eyes are you daydreaming about how your life is so great, and every day you wake up you’re living your best life ever? All the actions that you take every day produce results that are a reflection of your daydreams or said another way, a reflection of the thoughts you think everyday. Are you surrendering to being happy and full of joy and grateful for every moment of the day? What that can look like is getting up, having a cup of coffee, a healthy breakfast, working out or meditating. It can also involve knowing that you are working in a career that is meaningful to you and you just can’t wait to do it every day. In fact, you would do it even if you were not getting paid for it. I know that as surrendering to the good life. On the flipside to that is getting up late, not eating breakfast, not working out and not meditating or taking care of yourself. It looks like getting up everyday and dreading going into a job that is not fulfilling and is not meaningful. Your thoughts are filled with complaints and negativity.

Are you surrendering to the thoughts in your head that are filled with fear and doubt? Well, today I say it’s time to surrender instead to your goals and dreams not the fear and self-doubt. When you surrender to the longing of knowing that what you want is out there, and start visualizing yourself touching it, feeling it, smelling it, your actions will start to be in alignment with that goal, and you will have it faster than you ever thought possible.
