Don’t beat Yourself up, Life Is Too Short…Let Go.
I see my children and I remember how it was. I keep pushing them to get rid of what they don’t need anymore, to give away to charity old toys they don’t play with anymore…I look at their faces when they say its special…to them!!! Oh does this ring a bell with anyone?
When I was younger I used to hold onto everything, hoarding like a lil old lady. My teddies, not that I had many (hand me downs from the market) were bedraggled from being handled and squashed to death, grubby and well-loved for sure. Letting go of these was hard esp. when my mom insisted that I hand over one to a visiting cousin or family friend. It was always tears & tantrums…! As I grow older, I’ve learnt to let go of many “toys”, but by gosh I can’t seem to let go of My Handbags and Shoes! Maybe because my shoe size will never change now that I am an adult and good leather handbags grows better with age 🙂 or so I tell myself.
And that brings me to something called Sunk Cost Syndrome (SCS). This is when we invest ourselves in something. And start to view that thing differently somehow simply because we’re invested in it; or feel “obliged” to stick it out! This is more so with regards to the professional and business world. If we are not careful, the Hoarding and Hanging on for dear life can drag us down if we hang on for far too long…! We must know when to hang in there, when to adjust and When To Let Go, it can be the difference between $10,000+ in our bank or $0 …Yes 🙁
The above can be demonstrated in various ways: when we are in a bad even abusive or toxic relationship and we convince ourselves that the other person will change if we but show them some more love or “Stick it out”…!!!
Many times I have gone to the movies or watched a TV program where the first 30mins are simply awful! Guess what I do? Well I very rarely get up and leave, I literally watch it to the end and moan about how bad it was, another 40mins, or hour of my life wasted…WHY!!! Because mentally I have invested in the movie, program, action. I have this compulsion to complete what I started. From the movie I want to feel like I got value for my money, I paid to watch the drivel didn’t I…!!!! BUT MUST I?
I have shoes that I bought 5 years ago, Some are really well worn, seriously I should take them to a charity shop. I have T-shirts I bought when I visited wherever 7 years ago, with tears from then washer, faded old out of fashion, But hey I still think they are worth £500 to me…why coz I’m invested in these things EMOTIONALLY! I have taken ownership of these things which could be worthless to other for all I know. Mind you I am not beating down on people keeping things they have attached emotional value to or have memories vested in them. In fact If we all got rid of everything we find useless, we would wipe out history!
BUT and this is a Big BUT, in some areas Holding on for dear life can prove to be a BAD Move, toxic even. In Business it can make or break a person or a company. Evolving is normal, Change is natural, growth is supposed to be the target of every business man/woman/entity. If growth is not happening then Change must Ensue, even if that change means DROPPING IT! Let Go!
For instance: If I set up a website, or have a project I’ve been working on. I have been at it for years and still never made a dime out of it…! SHOULD ANYONE CARRY ON LIKE THAT? I say NO. It’s time to Cut Your Losses and Move on Do Let Go! Don’t hang on to that “Toy” it’s not worth it if all it does is drain your energy, finances, emotions, time, life! If this is your scenario…put an end to it Now! The thing is, you’ve been at it for years and it’s still not profitable. STOP Burning your cash or throwing good money after bad!
Oh yes I know ….You’re fully invested in it. Well I know it’s tough to just up and abandon it. But sometimes we’ve got to get past the emotions and simply move on. WHY? Because the past is gone, we can never take it back, we must learn from it and CHANGE. The future is what matters. So YES You can choose to stop anything TODAY right now! If a business Or a strategy hasn’t been working for you… Then it’s time to cut the cord and try something new that May actually work! Let go and allow your hands to receive something new!
Many people struggle online for years, making very little to nothing, the odd hit here and there, but nothing to write home about! I say it’s time to Try This!
And let the Past become a hazy dream as you learn to Let Go of whatever has been stealing your time, efforts energies, creativity and Not rewarding YOU!

If you always focus on the problem you will never get to the prize. Do you have a vision? Pick a leaf from David, he slew Goliath because he definitely had the Hand of God, AND he Focused on the Prize 🙂 Yesterday I was in a state of excitement and joy, My son did us proud winning 2 Prestigious awards THAT HE WORKED HARD FOR, And our Popi’s report is awesome A+ all the way.Thank You Lord.
AND Well what can I say….It’s summer AND what a wonderful summer we are having over here in the land of Queen Eliza! But not so wonderful for many online and network marketing programs as it’s also a slow season, most summers are. In other words in business seasons, that’s “Winter” a time to whittle down the serious and visitors, a time to tighten our belts and keep our eyes on THE WHY i.e. Our Targets. If you have a vision for your future, then you must prepare the land, take the weeds out, turn the soil, put in some manure and let nature do its thing. How well you work in this season will determine your “harvest” in the autumn and summer of business.
What do I mean by this? Use this opportunity to Train yourself, Prospect, fill your funnel with leads, write a blog, make some videos, and share them with your Facebook audience, put together some interesting webinars and train your down-lines on how best to maximise their business. I am going to show you exactly how to get Organic Laser targeted leads from Facebook, grab them while they last Facebook has a habit of changing things at their convenience & remember Free has a Cost i.e. your time & effort Take a Look Here
Handle these people with respect, have posture, be professional and show them that you genuinely care, add them to your group and ask them to like your fan page once you have got to know them a lil! And guess what, you will get some conversions. WHY? Many Network marketers have never made a dime in any program and are desperate to change that situation and would follow the right “LEADER” if you are one! As in add value, mentor them, engage with them, marinate them (I love that word), show them that you have a vision and at the right time they will come to you without you chasing them or pitching them. This takes time but it works for 6-7 figure earners, why not YOU. Rome wasn’t built in one day!
And guess what else the Alphas and big hitters do, whether they’re planning a trip to the beach, or something else fun, it’s a time of the year when many pick up a book or two to read, allow me to give you A Gift of an absolutely Free E-book << take delivery. Its free no obligation, just because It changed my life, I love to read a good book, one that uplifts me & pay it forward, share the joy 🙂
BUT again here is some surprising info, According to Amazon Kindles Tech statistics, most people never get past the first 2 chapters of a book, may be they don’t have a vision! A real shame because books do change lives. You may have great “plans” to read a book, but allow other things to take priority. We are also getting shorter and shorter attention spans, and what do we prefer? Some brain cell killing reality T.V. a few hours daily, and for some all day!
We’re also bombarded with ads, via emails selling new products daily. Mind you it’s VERY easy to hit that “Buy Now” button, Sheishhh I have done so a few times. Many times the claims are ones that excite the heck out of us, many also have the potential to change our lives. And on a few occassions we are blessed with a gem. No risk taken no gain Right!
I believe this one is one such program, a program that’s changing people’s lives Giving back, building lives, creating incomes worldwide Check out our charity work here
Sadly many buy a truckload of online products, & never actually go through the training, much less apply anything from it, therefore loosing time and money and sometimes friends too! These don’t really have a vision! Other times, programs Fail us miserably, either due to greed, OR Just due to lack of New affiliates/distributors, making it hard for the owners to keep them running, just like in any Offline business, No customers, no money, Overheads pile up and the maths don’t add up anymore… what does one do? Its again a matter of risk management and hopefully picking the right gem.
So, it’s only when you decide to take real focused action that things start to happen, You now have a vision, crystal clear. That when your stars will start to align. You can be a buyer…A reader…Or a DOER… or keep going on all kinds of fool’s errands!
But you know what’s NOT a fool’s errand? Getting serious and joining a team that has posture, systems in place, tools, a real adventure. After checking out the presentation, seeing the vision, doing your maths, creating a strategy & plan. You could decide this program is for you…YES TAKE A LEAP OF FAITH And then by george, actually going through with your plans, and wait… applying what we will teach you, your world will never be the same!
So whether you’re picking up a new book, or are getting serious about an off line business or any online program there are loads out there, have a vision, take the time to finish what you set out to do.
You can do it. Talk soon
Rise & shine to your Awesome Destiny!
To Your great success
