Recently, I went to a yoga class for the first time in over a year.
At the beginning of class, the instructor invited us to set an intention for our yoga practice that day.
I really hadn’t thought about my intention before class, so I decided to use the one she gave us.
It was “let it all go.”
We stretched and breathed for an hour.
Downward facing dog. Child’s pose. Warrior pose. Chair pose. Lotus pose.
She guided us to breathe deeply.
And when we exhaled?
To let it all go.
I loved using this intention as a mantra throughout the week – all while dealing with some difficult issues in both my business and personal life.
I asked myself – what would it look like to just let it all go?
This weekend, things clicked for me.
2 decisions I had to make in my life and business were resolved.
As a result, I was able to take inspired action in both cases.
So today, I pose this question to you…
What would it look like for you to let it all go right now in your business?
Maybe you’ve been beating yourself up because there’s only _ months left in the year and you haven’t made much progress on your revenue goals.
Maybe you’ve been stuck in the energy of guilt and shame, making it even harder to move forward.
Newsflash: Neither of those emotions are going to get you to where you want to be.
Feel free to borrow my inspiration from yoga class:
LET IT ALL GO AND START OVER.
Forget about the plans you mapped out in January that you didn’t even make a dent on.
The programs you didn’t launch.
The books you didn’t read.
The gym membership you didn’t use.
Let it go.
Let it go.
Let it go.
And then ask –
What do you desire NOW?
What do you want to experience NOW?
What goals do you want to commit to NOW?
What decisions do you want to make NOW?
When you get honest with yourself, you may find that your August list looks very different than your January list, and that’s totally fine.
What matters is that you’re in ALIGNMENT with your goals in this moment.
