Day 26 No Striving Challenge – Time to Surrender

No Striving BadgeAs you can probably see by now, we can live in a vicious, unhealthy cycle of striving to prove something. But to who? …to yourself? …your family? …your friends? …the world?


And isn’t it time for a change? Wouldn’t it be refreshing to be able to simply trust that all is falling into place without your need to be in control of it at all times? Ahhh….


Here’s the thing…you really can relax into that knowing.


When we let go of the belief that we have to do this on our own, we come to a place of surrender. Not surrender in the sense that we give up, but rather surrender to the knowing that all is well.


Trying too hard amplifies your lack of belief in yourself, in your source of well-being.


As Abraham from says…


We’ve been taught to believe the lack of trying is laziness or unambitious, but the Truth is lack of trying shows your confidence in who you really are.


Your work now is to align with the power of who you really are. This takes focus. The work is not doing nothing, because focusing isn’t doing nothing. Deliberate emotion is doing something. Focus on your feeling.


This takes us back to the beginning of the Challenge where you defined your emotional goals. This is where your focus needs to be. From these emotional goals, inspired actions will arise that guide you to your larger vision. We still get to dream big. …just let your emotions be the guiding force, NOT the striving to get there.


“It is important to let go of personal ambition. If you are tuning into and following the higher plan, all good things will come to you.” ~Sanaya Roman
