Success is a subjective term that is measured in many different ways. For some success is: amassing great wealth, professional advancement, achieving physical goals, acquiring a specific level of education…and the list goes on. For the purposes of this affirmation, let’s consider success as the fulfillment of one’s individual destiny and/or life purpose.
Success requires sacrifice. This sacrifice can exist in the form of:
- forfeiting those things we like to do for the things we must do in order to succeed
- choosing not to cultivate our connections with certain people
- getting rid of material things that are valuable and/or have a sentimental value
In either case, success requires us to let go..and let God! As cliche as this sounds, it is true. God is always preparing us for the next level along the journey to destiny’s fulfillment. Some of us choose to resist these changes, and thus remain stagnant until we learn to relinquish unnecessary attachments. I have learned that the best way to succeed in life is to flow with the natural ebbing of Spirit, which can sometimes require letting go of people, places, experiences, fears, emotions, thoughts or whatever else may be causing a barrier between us and our success. In short, if God shows us that we must “let go”…let go and watch how God works in your life. And so it is…
