The other day I had a great session with my coach Relinde Moors .
We work together on a regular basis to keep my mind shit in check. This time we tackled a good ole belief of mine that “I need to be in control”. When she asked what losing control actually felt like I described it as a roller coaster ride that went too fast.
She then asked, “What’s the worst that could then happen?”
My answer: “Literally crash and light’s out 💀”
You see, I grew up with the belief that control is safe, comfortable, and calm.
Actually being ok with “floating” or trusting that we are here to be ok, happy, and safe was not an idea that I had come across for a long time. Ok maybe in church when it was about trusting God but that never resonated with me.
Not being in control = Expecting the worst
So in the end not being in complete control made me automatically expect the worst instead of trusting that the universe has my back (𝘸𝘩𝘢𝘵 𝘢 𝘤𝘭𝘪𝘤𝘩é 𝘐 𝘬𝘯𝘰𝘸 𝘣𝘶𝘵 𝘶𝘭𝘵𝘪𝘮𝘢𝘵𝘦𝘭𝘺 𝘴𝘰 𝘵𝘳𝘶𝘦) and actually waiting for the good that would come out of it.
This has fundamentally changed my life and business. Instead of taking action all the time I let things pan out. And it has always been a good outcome. Crazy right?
What about you?
Can you let go of control and actually enjoy it? Trust in the universe or source or God or whatever it is for you?
