Over the past several months, I’ve shared insights from my personal journey as well as those friends and colleagues around me. We’ve discussed the freedom that results from letting go of expectations, emotions and relationships that no longer serve our self-interest. But there’s a flipside to all this letting go. Yes, there are those times that no matter what falls on your plate, we must never let go. These are the moments when we must defy gravity.
When we let go of self-directed purpose, we fall from grace.
When we let go of self-respect, we fall apart at the seams.
When we let go of self-restraint, we fall off the wagon.
When we let go of self-esteem, we fall short of expectation.
When we let go of self-worth, we fall behind.
When we let go of self-actualization, we fall back in the ranks.
When we let go of self-will, we fall by the wayside.
When we let go of self-assuredness, we fall down on the job.
When we let go of self-control, we fall asleep at the wheel.
When we let go of self-discipline, we often fall over backwards.
When we let go of self-defense, we fall into a trap.
When we let go of self-control, we fall on deaf ears.
When we let go of self-love, we fall head first into fear.
When we let go of self-awareness, we fall flat on our face.
but when we let of self-doubt, everything falls back into place.
