Surrender like you mean it

Surrender like you mean it.

My job as a business consultant and advisor is to evaluate.

To look, listen, and feel what is obvious to outsiders.

Why?

Insiders are too close.

They can’t see things with the clarity and unfiltered impressions a complete outsider sees.

This skill transfers – whether i want it to or not – to family, friends and colleagues.

To have valuable insight into undiscovered opportunity is a burden.

i surrender to what i can’t control.

Surrender requires a deep and complete letting go of the good choices never made.

Dear Son

Lean into surrender, it can save your life

quote
Profound.

 

Lean into surrender, it can save your life.

Stress is known as the silent killer.

Feeling like you can should change someone is fruitless.

And deadly.

Let it go.

Not because you don’t care.

Let go because you do care.

Let go because you care about yourself and those you live with.

It’s an ugly part of life, yet co-dependance is unhealthy.

Others will judge you and say you should do something more.

Bottomline, you cannot change some people.

And you have to surrender to this if you want to live a healthier life.

Note to self

Disney's Casey's Corner
Co-dependent on Disney?

 

Note to self.

As difficult as it may seem, you must not become codependent.

This serves no one.

Plus, it traps you into believing the wrong things and doing the wrong things.

Heck yeah it can make you feel guilty.

So ask yourself, “Guilty of what?”

You free your children, and teach your children, when you let them make their own mistakes.

Same applies to aging parents.

No?

Starting to sense i need to let go

Nursing home resident
i take solace in trying my best.

 

Starting to sense i need to let go.

i asked the 90-year old, like i always do when we visit, “Are you afraid?”

Carrying a sense of obligation to help him articulate that he’s ok with his situation, even as it deteriorates.

Maybe i’ve tried long enough and hard enough.

Maybe next visit i don’t even mention it or concern myself with it.

It’s worth a try.

The original tagline at jeff noel.org

Not everyone is comfortable with walking away.

 

The original tagline at jeff noel.org from 2008…

Surrender • Self-control • Service

Eight years later, it still rings true.

Whomever can walk away from a deal holds the upper hand when negotiating.

Surrendering a business opportunity instead of fighting desperately to make it work is glorious. It is also humbling. And peaceful.

Walk and act with humility. Even in business.

And, because you have nothing to lose, try some radical approach.
