So I want to talk to you about courage. Having the balls to move to your new destination. So there’s this quote by Christopher Columbas, I’ll just read it out: “You can never cross the ocean until you have the courage to lose sight of the shore”.

And that’s so true, isn’t it? How the hell can you go somewhere else if you won’t go there if you are stuck on the shore where you are at? And that’s the thing, there’s got to be things in your past that you have to move away from, whether it’s an old relationship, an old job, an old organization, something you learned, an old idea even.

Even to grow and learn as a person you have to move away from some old ideas and gain some new ones. I’ve done that recently, I’ve also recently moved location, I always do that, I always move away from something and moving into something new.

To the ability that you can deal with rapid change is the ability that you’re going to be able to succeed in every environment that you go into because you’re going to situate and maneuver yourself in such a way that you can capitalize on the change that’s occurring constantly within the different environments that you’re in.

And that’s how you keep learning but you have to be able to let go of… sometimes it’s people in the past. I’ve let go of certain people that I felt were, not really holding me back, but if I was to continue to hang around them it wouldn’t have been ideal. You have to continue to move forward in your life.

Let me get this straight, you don’t just completely forget about everything. It’s important to process what happened so you can learn from it and so you can grow from it. Some things that are hurtful you have to process that effectively so you can deal with that in your life from your past so then you can move forward. And that’s about reflecting on it, thinking about it at an emotional level, feeling it at an emotional level, and dealing with it emotionally. And thinking about it differently and feeling about it differently and moving forward in your life.

That’s what I’m talking about right here is, you know, whatever it is, whether it’s a relationship, or an old workplace, or an old mindset, you have to think about how things are different now and learn from what you went through so you can now act in accordance to what you’ve learned so you don’t keep spiraling back into the same trap again. Because that’s what happens to people in life.

Because that’s what happens to people in life is that they go around and around in circles because they haven’t learned the lesson they need to learn to move forward. But have the courage and the balls to let go of the past too, don’t feel like you have to stay in one place, it’s good to explore, it’s good to go out and explore and take new territory and explore new things.

I just want to encourage you. Keep exploring. Keep learning. If you’re going through anything that you feel like you want to let go of in the past and you feel like you need some help with it, leave a comment, I’ll reply, we can talk about and see if we can help you just get over that thing. Because you know sometimes you just have to

Because you know sometimes you just have to get over something. Sometimes it takes time, it takes distance, whatever it is… but I would say definitely process through it, don’t just think about it and just sit there stressing about it, but process it emotionally and then move forward and have the balls to reach out and move to your next destination. That next thing that you’re moving towards that you feel is really a part of your journey. So I just want to encourage you and I’ll see you in the next video.
