This week Ross and I have been enjoying a road trip from Newcastle to Melbourne to Adelaide.
We attended a personal development workshop with Kachina Ma’an and I want to share one of the biggest takeaways for me.
We were discussing our limitations.
We talked about what holds us back.
One of those things is a belief or expectation that we have to know, that we have to analyse, that we have to truly understand what stops us from achieving or being what and who we want.
In one short sentence, Kachina dispelled that. She said, “You don’t have to know what’s in the garbage to empty it”.
How liberating is that?
We don’t have to spend hours, days, weeks, months or years desperately trying to understand what holds us back. We simply need to empty the garbage.
Kachina gave us tools to do just this.
In less than 10 seconds a day, we can empty the garbage and start the day with a fresh new perspective.
This is similar to what Dr Joe Vitale talks about when he explains Ho’oponopono, in his book “Zero Limits”, where our aim is to clear the slate and get back to zero memories.
This may or may not resonate with you. That will depend on your beliefs and values.
For me, I’m all for an easy way to do things. We don’t need to make it hard.
So, your mission this week is to become aware of your habitual thinking.
Become aware of your habitual expectations and if you find that they’re negative, be open to being able to release them.
Remember, you don’t have to know what’s in the garbage to empty it.
