Ep. 68: Simplify to Thrive: The Power of Letting Go! 


“That's been one of my mantras - focus and simplicity. Simple can be harder than complex: you have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple.  But it's worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains." ― Steve Jobs

Folks, do you have a yearning to simplify your life? In your pursuit to simplify, do you have an easy or hard time to let go what doesn't serve you?

Quote: “Some of us think holding on makes us strong but sometimes it is letting go.” - Hermann Hesse

Folks, one of the first steps of simplifying your life, is exercising your ability to let go.  In today's episode, I'm going to share an old story of why it's important to let go, and how simplifying your life may be the step you need to level up and thrive.  In today's episode, I'll be sharing:

1. Story of why it's important to let go
2. What are the "Bananas" that you are holding on to? 
3. Simplify: Does this spark joy?
4. Action steps you can take on how to simplify.

The key of simplicity is knowing what to simplify. What parts of your life can you let go, to create more space for joy to come into your life?

With that said, what are this week's ACTION STEPS to simplify?

  1. CCalm yourself with whatever methods work for you. Breathing exercise, meditation, yoga or running.
  2. A: Awareness. What bananas are you holding onto? Which bananas have stronger negative emotions attached to them that drain your energy?

Quote: “Simplicity is the key to brilliance.” - Bruce Lee

I hope today's episode inspires you to think different. Perhaps less is more in your life. Perhaps simplicity is the key to unlocking your ability to level up. Perhaps letting go is what's holding you back from abundance flowing in your life.
