Are You Getting What You Want?

Surrender is a major player in the game of life. Whether we play it or bench it is often the difference between winning and losing.

Hello and Happy New Year! (I can still say that, right?)

Did you enjoy the holidays? Does it feel like they were eons ago?? Feels a little bit like that for me.

My hope is that you’re feeling calm, secure, hopeful and expectant for what’s to come in 2016.

If you happen to already feel defeated 11 days into the new year because you’ve managed to drop the ball on 37 of your 50 resolutions, then let me firmly but kindly insist that you drop the rest of your balls!

Didn’t you read this? ;) When you choose how you want to feel this year (or month, week, day) – and align your thoughts and actions with that desire – you’ll be on your way to feeling happier and more powerful than you ever imagined.

One way to feel more powerful is to give your power away. What?? Now you’re just trying to confuse me, Amy… Stick with me.

I like to listen to and read interviews with people who have “made it”. Whether they’re performers, writers, musicians or entrepreneurs, many of them share the same general experience.

Once they recognized that there’s a higher power in the mix and starting working with that power rather than against it, that’s when things fell into place. That’s when what they wanted - and usually so much more – came into their life.

Surrendering may sound like you’re technically giving up, but when you do that, your life winds up accelerating. Like magic.

Do you find yourself struggling, (over)thinking, analyzing, figuring, forcing, pushing and trying to make things happen so you can get what you want? Is that leaving you stressed, confused, frustrated, aggravated, emotionally exhausted, depleted and defeated?

If you’re tired of living like this, you have permission (in fact, it’s a direct order) to throw down the white flag (cause we all have one of those on hand) and surrender. Give up. Let go.

When you decide to team up and work with that higher power, exactly what you need and want (and more) will be ushered into your life faster than you can shout, “HELP!!!”

That’s this month’s challenge – to surrender. Here are some practical steps to doing just that.

  • Know what you want.
  • Let go of believing you already know how to get it. (Even if you really think you do.)
  • Before you take any action, get in touch with your higher power, your inner guidance, your Jiminy Cricket conscience, God… Say what you want, believe you can have it, ask to be led to get it, say thank you and tune in for the answers.
  • When you’re guided and an idea or thought comes to you, if it feels peaceful and “right” then by all means, take that inspired action.
  • Keep doing this step by step believing you’ll get to where you want to be no matter how wacky the directions may be at times.

When you do this every day, every hour – heck, every few minutes if you need to at first – watch how your life starts to flow. You’ll feel like you have an inner partner in crime. A personal GPS. An angel. Guiding you to what’s best.

I can’t wait to hear how this works for you. You in? You better be. ;)

If you get stumped, lose steam, or need a push, you know where to find me. I’ve got room for a few more coaching clients this month and can turn you around and get you buzzing in no time!

Lastly, feel free to have a listen to the podcast for more details on how to let go, straight from Elsa, I mean me. ;)
