Your only real limitation is you- Cutting ties 103

Don’t let yesterday take up much of today …
The last time, I shared on Risk taking 102. I have been super busy so I could not post anything. From the topic on Risk taking from the ‘Your only real limitation is you’ series, I hope we have been able to learn a few things, its better to try and fail over and over again than to not try at all.Those who haven’t read the post should also give it a read ..

When we don’t cut ties of things not relevant to us, we give those things or people much power over us because we haven’t let go.

When trying to discover ones self there are things we need to remove our links with, break chains from and have absolutely no contact or connection with. Some of these things can be people, others objects and some others habits. Its really only when we are able to disconnect ourselves from these things that we can move forward and advance in life. 
Everyone wants a better future for themselves. A better life, a better job, a happy marriage but if we want to leave our curent state for the better for the best we need to leave there and thrive forward for the better or best.

Cutting ties is like growing up. Today a child would want to be a nurses, then later a lawyer but when she/he reaches that stage of realization its then they truly understand their true life call and they let go of other things.

 Before we can cut ties with things or people we need to come to a state a realization asking ourselves: Is this what I want? Where would this take me? Is it worth the risk of leaving where I am already? We need to speak to ourselves because unless we can leave/cut ties with the good orbad we can’t get the better neither can we meet the best. 

To get a better job which pays more we need to leave the first job(that one job thats comfortable and has little stress), for us to move on in the dating world and to find someone worthy of us(we need to leave that person who isnt worth us or that person we keep holding on to even after a breakup). Lets leave the past where it belongs.

If we don’t cut ties with some things in our lives we give no room for new things and we keep ourselves held down.

We all have a past, its either our prison, our excuse or our pain. Our pasts have a great hand in limiting is if we hold on to them thus keeping ourselves from moving on. Cut the ties …

Life’s to short yo become an inmate in the prison of our past. 

To move on we need to:

  • Recognize when something is dead- when we know we have lost interest or vibe for it. No amount of work can resuscitate a corpse.So get over it, sign the death certificate, bury it and move on!
  • Cast all your cares upon Jesus- He knows what we want before we do but He can only take us higher if we are ready for it. Release the past and cut ties so you can make room for fresh things in your lives.

Throw the past away, if we don’t we are simply sacrificing our future to an idol thats not worthy of our worship.

Even though you may want to move forward in your life, you may have one foot on the brakes. In order to be free, we must learn how to let go. Release the hurt. Release the fear. Refuse to entertain your old pain. The energy it takes to hang onto the past holds us back from a new life. 

Philippians 3:13
Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead.

What is it you would let go of today?

Yours truly….J❀❀

  1. Cutting ties is great advice. Though it’s definitely easier said than done πŸ˜‰ But I look back on some of my jobs or places I’ve been in my life and think, man I really should have left earlier. Still, there have been times where I’m glad I hung in there because something really great came of it. It’s a tricky idea, but it is always good to be aware of your options. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Wow, that quote hit me! “When we don’t cut ties of things not relevant to us, we give those things or people much power over us because we haven’t let go.” Such a great perspective, and I’ve definitely seen that to be true in my life! We are so often stretched way too thin, and cannot fully give ourselves to the things that truly matter. Setting boundaries (cutting ties) is healthy and productive, because it grants us more energy to pursue the things to which we are truly called!
