In the past year I have launched several projects, including 2 websites, where I started to force things to get them off the ground. With 2Click Coaching & Consulting for example, where I deployed all kinds of “techniques” to attract customers, with only limited results. When looking for work, I put a lot of time and effort in it, even pushing people to get results, with very little success.
We have learned, already at a young age, that if you want to get things done you need to put pressure on yourself or others. Targets, deadlines, we all believe that they are necessary to achieve what we want. What about you? Are you using pressure and force to get things done? How does it work, do you get the results you want?
From my own experience I can tell that things really get moving if you are able to let go and stop interfering. In other words, to allow the “system” to take care of itself, sometimes in the most unexpected and beautiful ways. I know this is not easy because of everything we have learned, but that is why I invite you to listen to this short channel with Abraham (6:06), reminding all of us in a gentle way to just let things be and allow everything to unfold in a natural way.
Please take a few deep breaths and enjoy.
Questions you may want to reflect on:
1. Would you be able to allow for things to just unfold, at work or with your projects, without pushing? What would go wrong if you no longer force things?
2. What is the driver behind your pushing and forcing things? Is it a belief system you have? What other people may think of you if you don’t push? Or, is it the fear of failure?
Perhaps it is an idea to become more aware of those situations where you think you need to put pressure on things to achieve a certain goal and then make a conscious choice to step back and allow the “system” to organize itself and see what happens. To make this easy on yourself take small things or issues to begin with and then see what happens if you let go.
