You Will Never Learn to Fly If Your Feet are Always on the Ground
We can have, do, or be most anything we desire, but not at the same time. We can be the high school prom queen, editor of our college newspaper, CEO of a 24/7/365 Fortune 500 company or a full-time mommy or daddy. However, we can not be all of them simultaneously, as we can only occupy one identity… at least successfully, at a time. And in order for us to become what we next desire to be, we need to leave our current identity behind us, as this is the only way we can make room for what’s coming.
That means if you want to be financially successful, you must give up the part of you that believes money is hard to come by… or that if you really want to experience what it’s like to be in a healthy and loving relationship, you must let go of the version of you that believes true love is impossible to find. In order to manifest our deepest desire, in any area, we must first let go of the part of us that doesn’t believe it’s possible… for whatever reason.
This is part of the circle of life. We evolve from one stage to the next, each transition signifying an evolution in our growth process from one identity to the next. Whether it was going from infancy to being elementary school age or from our teen years into our twenties… each stage gave way to the next as we expanded our awareness and increased our perspective. However, if we had kept our feet planted firmly on the ground, instead of letting go as necessary to increase our vantage point, our evolution would have been stunted… and we’d be STUCK.
You see, before the idea of fear got in the way, you use to jump seamlessly from one stage to the next, as you saw no other way of evolving into the person you wanted to be. Then, after witnessing enough experiences where things didn’t go exactly as planned, your psyche begin to create mental blocks and obstacles for you to overcome so that you could evolve into the version of you that could believe that your dreams are a possibility for you.
This is why it’s so important to be able to “jump” when that inner voice tells you to. Whether it’s leaving a job to start a new company, separating yourself from a relationship that isn’t working, or taking a vacation adventure because your daily routine has become mundane and boring. Allowing your feet to come up off the ground isn’t scary… in fact, it’s the only way you can fly.
