Recently, to my surprise and great pleasure, the House of Representatives gave me a Commendation for “continued exhibition of the pursuit of excellence as a Personal Growth Expert.” Thank you for being a part of this humbling recognition.
Can I be honest? It hasn’t been easy. And one of the hardest things that I’ve had to do in my life is to let go of relationships that were not serving my highest good. And to admit that I could no longer be of service to certain individuals. These were people I grew up with or met over time. Either way, I learned to love and trust them with some of my deepest secrets. The truth is, when our lives started moving in different directions it became evident that we no longer shared the same values. Making the decision to excuse myself from these relationships felt like a part of me was drifting from me.
Dr. Maya Angelou says: There’s a rainbow in your clouds. Looking back I now know that I would not have been able to successfully move my life forward if I had stayed in that space with those individuals. My decision wasn’t passing judgement nor does it make them wrong or bad. I knew that if I was going to fulfill my mission in life I had to make some tough decisions. And stick by those decisions. Although I missed the habit of our interaction there was a miracle in it all.
While those relationships were dying new relationships were emerging. I discovered and nurtured relationships with people who shared the same values. Like most pivotal moments in our lives, we have to be willing to give up one thing to get another.
This audio is going to challenge you to do the same thing–make some tough decisions about your future. Listen now.
