Knowing When It’s Time To Let Go

Knowing When It's Time to Let Go by Dominique D. Wilson

What do you need to let go of so that you can soar?

There are 3 things that I absolutely love about Fall: Cooler weather, the the vibrant energy of women empowering women everywhere I turn, and gentle reminders from nature about the power of letting go!

Because October is National Women's Small Business Month, I've had a great time learning more about powerful women of like mind.

I don't believe in coincidences because I know from personal experience that your vibe attracts your tribe—it's the law of attraction.

So, it's no surprise that today after journaling about letting go, I happened to come across a message that really inspired me by the Chairwoman of the National Women's Business Council herself, Carla Harris.

In her recent talk, she shared 3 Powerful Questions that you should ask yourself about taking a risk.

1)  Will it give you skills and expertise that you wouldn't get if you stayed in the same place for the next 12 months?

2)  Will is expose you to people, relationships, and efforts that you wouldn't get if you stayed in the same place for the next 12 months?

3)  Will it create new branches on your personal decision tree of opportunity—allowing you to do some other things that you would not have been able to do if you stayed in the same place for the next 12 months?

She goes on the say, "If the answer to all 3 is YES, then absolutely take the risk!"

Although she was talking about starting something new, it reminded me of the importance of knowing when it's time to let go.

She highlighted the benefits that we can miss out on when we refuse to let go of what is not longer serving us.

When we cling to the past—the new relationship, better career, better health, more money, better quality of life await in the distance doesn't have enough space to show up in our life.

Making the decision to let go is taking a risk!

Releasing the things, people, and circumstances that aren't serving us is essential to our ability to maintain our momentum, happiness, and success.

It's not an act of bitterness, it's the natural circle of life.

Just look at the trees...beautiful flecks of reds, oranges, and yellows are carried away with the wind every year—allowing the potential for new life to emerge.

Will you have questions, uncertainties, and even fear? Yes!

BUT, regret? Nope!

I've discovered on my journey that life is about expansion, growth, and experience.

AND,

Our expansion is only possible through self-expression—taking inspired action based on who you are and what you want!

But, you can't take everything with you if you want to go far.

Every time I take action toward my purpose, I am making the conscious choice to let go of what no longer served me:

...doubt, limiting beliefs, naysayers, negative self-talk, old habits, expired relationships, bad news, and clutter.

How many times have you talked yourself out of an opportunity?

What do you you need to let go of so that you can soar?

I'm not judging you, just provoking some thought.

Life happens in the present moment—not the past, nor the future.

So, if you're reading this, then you still have a chance to start now.

First, ask yourself a powerful question, like:

What would you do you if knew you couldn't fail?

What would your life be like if you actually chose to believe that anything is possible for you?

What do you want to be known, and remembered for?

Second, 

Surround yourself by positive people who will support you in getting to the next level on your journey.

And third,

Start taking action to create the life you really want.

For me, this looked like starting a blog about my personal growth, which later evolved into a heart-centered business that allows me to use my gifts to inspire, educate, and empower women around the world.

I didn't know exactly how I would make my dream a reality, I just knew I had to take the first step.

I took a risk, and my path is still unfolding.

Clarity and purpose are the results of taking inspired action.

So, now I'd like to hear from you in the comments below this blog post:

What's one step that YOU can take this week toward your purpose? 

You have the power, the vision, and the good vibes of millions of other women who are radical about cheering you on while making their own dreams come true.

Why not ride the wave!

No matter what's you've been through, I truly believe that, you get to choose how you show up in life. So, love yourself fiercely, own your story, and say YES to you calling!

In Peace & Beauty,

Dominique Wilson
