Take Control of Your Life | Free yourself of the things that no longer serve you
I read a quote recently that said “the more you let go, the higher you rise.” It made me think a lot about the rapidly approaching new year. It feels like 2020 came and went in the blink of an eye and yet it was met with many milestones for our country but also many of us individually. For some, those milestones triggered a host of negative emotions and energy that we didn’t know what to do with. Sadness, hurt, resent, and anger just to name a few. These are emotions that, given the opportunity, will paralyze your life’s momentum.
It can make you feel hopeless. Even powerless.
But there is hope in knowing that you have the power to free yourself of the energy of your 2020. You have the power to free yourself of the things that no longer serve you.

So many of you are harboring shame, guilt or unfounded fears that are not allowing your business or life to soar.
You have so much more in you than you know. I’m 100% certain that you’re just scratching the surface of your potential. You just have to find the courage to release your past. It’s time to declare yourself independent of the things that no longer serve you. It’s time to release the energy, habits, mindsets and people that have not allowed you to rise to your potential.
You have control of your life. You are co-creating this beautiful vision with the Universe. Remember that your feelings of powerlessness only occur when you lack boundaries and control.
Here are two things you can do to free yourself from negative emotions:
Audit your support and success systems frequently.
Take 30 minutes and review how and with whom you operate your day-to-day. Ask yourself these questions:
- Does that interaction deplete you or energize you?
- Does it make you feel shame or strong?
- Does it have direct or immediate impact on my goals?
- Does it make me feel discomfort because I am outside of my comfort zone?
Just because it causes you some discomfort doesn’t mean that it’s not serving you. Just like a muscle in your body, courage, confidence and faith require stretching and movement to grow.

I’m a mom of three.
When I had my first, my friends with toddlers and preschoolers would give me advice or tell me how they handled a situation. While I appreciated it, I also know that memories of the newborn phase or having multiple kids under age six phase eventually goes into a black hole.
You only remember the milestones. So I intentionally sought out moms who were recently out of this phase.
I used to follow individuals who were already living my dream.
I thought it would make me work harder to get there. Instead, it made me more anxious and impatient because I wasn’t there yet. I still follow a few folks who are about 3-5 years ahead of my business journey, but I’ve felt it more impactful to find people who have recently graduated from my current phase in life or business.
I’ve done this for a few reasons:
- The physiological responses to the stress of it all is fresh. They remember how it feels to be where you are on a granular level. This means they’re truly able to help you navigate through the tough times.
- It makes it easier for me to identify the very next step. In my personal development company, I help overthinkers become action takers. Oftentimes, the reasons most women are not taking action towards their goals or dreams is because it feels too big. Breaking it up into steps makes the journey feel more obtainable and they’re less likely to jump ship.
- You can manage your mindset better. It’s easy to dismiss the success of others as luck or having help. That mindset only limits your potential. By watching someone not too far ahead of you, you can trick your mind into releasing the limitations.
