“Letting go means letting in new and better things.”
– Steve Napolitan
Welcome to the Steve Show. Today we’re going to talk about the Surrender Experiment and how it can help you trust yourselfmore and make powerful decisionswithout your fears getting in the way.
So, this year I read the Surrender Experiment, and I think it was one of the most important books I have ever read. It made one of the greatest impacts on my life, teaching me how to let goof things, so I could let inbetter things.
The book is about a guy called Michael Singer. He was so sick of how his life was going, that he went extreme and let go of the world he once knew. He drove his bus into the woods and decided to just live and sleep in his bus.
In the process of letting go, he found something else. He got into deep meditation. He started to listen to himself and hone his instinct.Even if he wasn’t sure about something, he would look for a sign to act, and he would act! He just said yeseven if a part of him wanted to say no.
Think about it. How often in your life is your first instincta YES (or no), as far as making the right decision, and then you talk yourself out of it?
We all been there and experienced that. How often do you go with your first instinct? That first thought that you have.
I want to encourage you to do that. Because when I implemented it, only good things started happening for me. I made quicker decisions in business and life. I developed stronger trust in myself. And over time, I became really comforted by the fact that lifeis really wanting me to succeed!
Give you an example. There were some guys that I know that are good businessmen. They called me about a deal and under normal circumstances I would have said yes because of how lucrativethe deal was from a money perspective. But my instinct said no.
Months later, that deal ended up falling through and I would have wasted my time. But gladly, I trusted my first instinct. When you read the book, you’ll understand even more about how important it is to trust your instinct.
So really, really pay attention.
… what is your body telling you?
… what is your heart telling you?
If you quieten down enough and pay attention, the answer is loud and clear. That’s where meditation comes in. Because many of us don’t quiet ourselves enough to even listen to ourselves. There’s so much noise going on that distracts us; TV, social media, crowds etc.
Give yourself some quiet time where you can check in with you and see what you say to yourself. When the answer comes to you you’ll know it.
So, remember: get in the conversation with self.
I also want to hear from you, what results you get, or any questions you have. Right now, you can comment on this post or follow me on social media.
I look forward to connecting with as many of you as possible😊
Until next time…
