Move on

When something becomes an effort and there is no joy, when we deep down know that something isn’t what we want, then it is time to let go and move on from that thing or person or whatever situation.

Of course, our mind will get us to believe that it is us or we have done something wrong, or we must try harder and so on. We cling on to a job, or friendship or anything, hoping to ‘fix’ it or to keep it as it was. But all things are temporary.

Things or people are meant to be or not. They can come and go from our lives or be there forever. A thing or a person may serve a purpose for a period, sometimes for a very short time and sometimes for much longer and then we have grown or evolved, or they have, and it is time to let go and move on. There is no reason for it, it just is and if we accept it, then we let go of pain and suffering within. We no longer blame ourselves.

We do not need to make an evaluation of the thing or the person, no need to search for a reason, there is no need for judgement, it is just a feeling from within that tells us that it is no longer suiting our journey and it is time to just move on and let go. However, the mind and its ego look to hold on or to convince or to make us do more or there is guilt.

Just be at peace with all that is, just accept that it is no longer for us and choose a new direction, a new start and always focus on our inner wisdom and intuition…trust it and just be.

Invest in yourself

I have blogged a few times about the idea of not waiting to be picked by others and to choose yourself. Ensure that our future is in our control.

Once you have chosen yourself, however, you are going to need to invest in you.

Incomes are stagnant for some, but for most, they are falling in real terms. Jobs and job functions are being replaced by technology. There is more and more competition for work.

Many seek alternatives and become freelance, but then there are more and more people becoming freelance and therefore, more and more competition.

The solution is to read more, listen more, learn more, get a mentor, get a coach, and develop yourself. Learn, improve, adapt, and learn, improve, and adapt again, and again and….

Invest time in you and as much as you can.

We as individuals, more than ever, have to stand out, have to become the best versions of ourselves that we can.

Just doing ‘good enough’ is letting ourselves down.

We are our only asset and we need to nurture ourselves continually if we are going to be equipped for the world that is rapidly changing and achieve our dreams.
