There is a common misconception that in order to attain physical, mental, and spiritual wellbeing, all we have to do is add something to our life.
We believe that:
- Taking pills will get rid of our illness;
- Drinking juice will burn our fat tissues;
- Taking energy shots will give us vitality;
- Performing religious rituals will make us spiritual;
- Learning more will give us wisdom;
- Making new friends will make us happier;
- Creating a hobby will make us feel fulfilled;
While certain additions can indeed assist us in many ways, and in many cases they initiate positive changes and help us create better habits, rarely do they address the underlying cause of the problem.
But what if we were to deal directly with the root cause of what prevents us from attaining our greatness? What if we were to directly tackle that which obstructs our progress and keeps us from reaching our goals?
The true power lies in eliminating.
To be successful at achieving our goals, we must get rid of that which inhibits our growth—unhealthy foods, limiting beliefs, destructive habits, negative people, and needless material possessions:
- By eliminating the foods that cause chaos in our body, we make room for natural, wholsome nourishment. The excess weight and old poisons start to be released; old diseases start to fade away; we become more vibrant and alive.
- By eliminating the limiting beliefs and fears that have prevented us from following our heart, we start to trust more and develop the confidence that allows us to get the most out of our life; we become more fulfilled.
- By eliminating religious programming (which is often very limiting), we begin to realize and embrace our Divine Self; we become more spiritual and aware.
- By eliminating the negative people (who are really energy vampires) that always leave us feel drained, we become more positive, happier and radiant.
- By eliminating unnecessary material possessions that have cluttered our life, we start to recognize, and appreciate the most simple and profound things in life that cannot be purchased with money; we gain wisdom.
Before spending money and time on adding new things, consider investing your energy and effort on eliminating the old. When we start to empty ourselves of the old, we automatically create room for the new and allow the new to freely flow into our life, without effort.
