Eventually, I got tired of hearing my inner voice complain about what I didn’t like and I decided to open myself up to new solutions. In both situations I found I was able to have a complete shift in perspective and see things in a very different way. These insights seemed impossible for me to see before.
How did I get there? I think the thing that helped the most was surrendering. I decided to let go of my expectations about how things should be and what should happen. Once I did that it was as if the blinders had been removed and I could see things differently.
It all seems very obvious now, and it’s hard to understand how I couldn’t see things this way before. In the work that I do I help people shift their perspective and let go all the time, but seeing your own stuff is much more difficult and takes a lot longer.
It’s a great example of how attachment to expectations can stop you seeing what’s right in front of you.
Action Step: Think of a situation you’ve been struggling with. Ask yourself if you can let go of your expectations around what should happen and how things should be. If you are willing, just let it all go and see what happens.
