So many of us carry burdens of past hurts. Childhood scars, devastating life events, and even minor disappointments can keep us always dwelling in the miserable past. Vision Boards are a wonderful tool for helping us stay focused on moving forward.
Yet for some of us, the success of our vision boards may well depend on our ability to let go of a past that keeps holding us back.
Leaving our baggage behind is certainly no easy task, but hanging on to it cheats us out of enjoying the present. It’s a burden that robs us of the opportunity to know true peace and joy, and to experience the freedom to live our full potential.
I’ve read dozens of books that have all been very helpful with personal and spiritual growth and learning how to move on. The key, always, is in letting go. For me that has also been the catch, until I read “The Secret of Letting Go” by Guy Finley.
While other authors address the issue of letting go in broad generalizations that can sometimes be difficult to internalize, Guy Finley presents specific details and concrete examples that make the concept so much easier to understand. His explanations guide us to discover exactly what goes on inside and how that has brought us to where we are in life. He then provides a step-by-step process by which we can finally, truly, let go.
Is this some magical answer that works instantly? No. But neither is it hard and painful work. All that is required is the willingness to want to have a better life, and enough open-mindedness to come to a new self-understanding.
Mr. Finley then lists five great illusions that keep us from letting go and living freely. Of those, one that speaks to me with powerful impact is this:
I could go on and on, but this is the kind of book that will touch each individual in different ways. If you struggle with letting go, perhaps you too will discover a meaningful, personal message in Mr. Finley’s words – a message that could be the key to seeing better results from your vision boards.
