Letting go of what's holding you back!

The one key requirement for success is letting go of your fear. Here's how to do it!

I remember a demonstration at a conference where two large suitcases were placed on one side of the stage. A member of the audience was asked to move from one side of the stage to the other. They tried to pick up the suitcases and move,  but they were too heavy and progress was slow. The presenter then suggested that the participant let go of the suitcases. The move to the other side was then completed with ease.  The lesson was that all that was required to get to where the person wanted to be, was to let go of what was holding them back.

Often the thing that is holding people back from what they want to achieve, is a fear. Whether it be fear of failure, fear of what other people might think, or even a fear of change, the fear is often irrational.  I have heard the statement quite a lot lately that the only thing more terrifying than things staying the way they are, is change. Napoleon Hill recognised this as a major factor in what determines people's success or failure in his book Think and Grow Rich.

What can you do about this phenomenon that apparently can make the difference between success and failure?  There are many theories that can lead to endless analysis paralysis.

The solution that makes the most sense to me is to commit to taking the first four steps of My 7 Steps to Success. The first three are a bit easier than the fourth. If you feel the fear creeping up on you when it gets to creating your affirmation and reading it aloud, fake confidence. Your subconscious mind doesn't distinguish between the fake or real confidence, and every time you read it you will feel more and more real confidence.

Your subconscious mind will then start tapping your as yet undiscovered creativity and resourcefulness to make the plans and find the solutions you are looking for. You will immediately feel encouraged to take action.

As you are working towards your goal, whenever fear raises it's ugly head, you have your affirmation to remind you of the path you are on. Use it to help you let go of the suitcases that are holding  you back and race ahead to your Destiny!
