A few weeks ago, I wrote about letting go and having faith that something new will grow.

This week I realized that letting go is also about mindsets. Letting go of a desired outcome, letting go of the one way, the only way I see something working out.

This week I learned that, when I am able to release my strong hold on a particular scenario, space opens up for new possibilities, new ideas, new ways to achieve the desired outcome.

Imagine you are walking on a lovely path and suddenly, your route is blocked by a giant, fallen tree. You might get so focused on how the tree has blocked your path that you are unable to consider any other options. But if you would just step back from the tree, you might see a secondary path right there, waiting for you.

That’s what happened to me.

I was so disappointed that I didn’t have the money to keep working with my coach that I got stuck in that mindset. When I finally let go of the possibility of working with her, some kind of space opened up. It suddenly became clear that I didn’t have to risk it all myself, I could ask for financial help.

My parents are so happy to support my success and they loaned me the money. And I am, again, working an amazing coach who is calling me to live bigger in every aspect of my life.

Why didn’t I ask from the beginning?

Because the thought never even occurred to me. I was too focused on the fact that I, by myself, had to pay for it and I didn’t have the money.

So what are you so focused on that has you stuck?

How can you step back, let go and open to another possibility?
