Kendall SummerHawk is an expert in business coaching, branding, marketing and self-employment success. She talks about the importance of making mental room for growth in business – but this can just as well apply in other areas of life, including creativity and personal development. Our thinking and beliefs can be barriers.
“If you’re feeling like you can’t handle more growth,” she says, “it’s likely because you’re carrying around excess baggage, which means it’s time to do one of my favorite activities: let go to grow.
“It’s simple, really. You can’t pour more into an already full cup. So, if you want to grow your business and create more freedom in your life you have to let go to create space for something new and exciting to present itself.
“Now, letting go isn’t limited to just cleaning out a closet or getting caught up on your filing. Periodically, you have to let go of emotional baggage, including old wounds, goals that no longer inspire you, ’shoulds’ and anything that makes you feel guilty.”
Jack Canfield says, “The Sedona Method is a vastly accelerated way of letting go of feelings like anger, frustration, jealousy, anxiety, stress, and fear, as well as many other problems even physical pain with which almost everybody struggles at one time or another.”
