Great Strength in Letting Go by Jonathan Budd

Jonathan_BuddWe all want to become wealthy yet we don’t realize that becoming wealthy means a RADICAL change in who we are and how we live our life. Today I’m going to share something I’m currently experiencing, that is a tough thing going on in my life, but has an ENORMOUS amount to do with creating success. Many of you might know I’m planning on Moving across the country to San Diego this weekend! I’m completely excited about this, but on the other hand… I’m pretty sad too. I got home last night at about 1:30 in the morning after hanging around with a close group of friends I have known my entire life. I have been doing nothing but saying goodbye to more or less everyone and everything I’ve known most of my life. My friends, my family, all my routines, places I go, my rituals…

I’m simply leaving it all. And while it’s exciting… it’s also not an easy thing to do.

 NULL It’s not an easy thing to say goodbye to your family, and have a FULL realization that the amount of time you are going to see most of them for the rest of your life is about to change. It’s not easy to say goodbye to all your friends you’ve known since you were 5 years old… and know you might not see most of them again… or very sparingly. It’s not easy to walk away from something that is ‘Comfortable’ to venture off into the Unknown… That’s what I’m feeling right now. I’m feeling the inevitable fact that my life is going to change in a pretty big way, that all I know is really going to be left behind, and I have the succinct realization that I will never really return to this part of the world that has been my home since birth. So what the heck does this have to do with network marketing and being successful? Well my friend… I can tell you this right now…

If you want true success in this industry you BETTER be prepared to leave behind an old life… and enter into a NEW one.

You see, we are ALL trying to become wealthy but the question we really need to ask ourselves is…”have we DEVELOPED that wealth inside first?” We all want to become wealthy yet we don’t realize that becoming wealthy means a RADICAL change in who we are and how we live our life. I see so many people who just ‘want the money’ but they don’t want to put in the work it actually takes to get there. I see so many people who think all this is about is learning how to sign people up in your business so you can get rich and live a good life. But it’s not. It’s about so much more… The truth is this… how can we expect our entire lives to change, and MASSIVE abundance to flow into our life, while being the same exact person we always were that only created whatever reality we are experiencing? Let me put it this way, if you make $50,000 a year… then how can you expect to make $1,000,000 a year being the same exact person who only created 50? You WON’T. That’s the truth. The truth is, if you are not DEVELOPING and CHANGING into the type of entrepreneur and human being that CAN create a 7 figure yearly income then you aren’t going to create it. We can’t ‘Hang On’ to everything that makes us feel comfortable, we can’t stay stuck in our same negative emotional patterns, we can’t stay stuck in our limiting identities… And expect the abundance we want for ourselves to suddenly show up. The fact of the matter is, we have to be willing to ‘Let Go’ of everything, to radically PURSUE a complete transformation within ourselves, and to work tirelessly to DEVELOP the mindset, attitudes, and behaviors that WILL create you $1,000,000 in a single year. The point is not the money. You can set whatever goal you want for yourself and they are all ok. Some may want $100,000 a year, others $300,000… it doesn’t matter. No matter what goal it is you have set for yourself… you will need to CHANGE how you live your life, and what your internal reality is to BECOME the type of person who can create it.

It doesn’t matter where you are… if you want to move further along the path… if you want to EVOLVE… then you simply NEED to change.

You need to be willing to let go of the comfortable old identities, you need to let go of the ‘known’ in pursuit of the unknown. Because it’s when you really venture into the unknown that you discover more of who you are anyway. It’s when you’re really willing to let go of who you think you are… that you discover much more about ‘Who You Truly Are’. And that’s what I’m doing right now. That’s why I feel so uncomfortable. That’s why it’s so sad for me to say goodbye to everyone and everything I’ve ever known… All my comforts of ‘home’… to move 3,000 miles to the other side of the country. But I’m doing it because I KNOW it’s the right thing to do. I don’t know why, but I need to do it. And truthfully, I see San Diego as a ‘launching point’. There’s some much more unknown out there… I don’t EVER want to stop challenging myself from facing it. I don’t EVER want to get too comfortable living in these ‘known’ realities I create for myself.

I want to live my life on the edge of the unknown. Staring into the vastness of who and what we are… all the time.

Somehow I know that if I do this… I will constantly be pushed more and more to the limits of myself. I will constantly be growing, and becoming more powerful… all the time. And with this willingness to let go of everything comes GREAT STRENGTH. It takes a lot of strength to change our lives… it takes a lot of strength to venture into the unknown. And this ‘Strength’ is the same strength that creates massive, massive success in our industry. When you develop this strength you are not afraid of ANYTHING. When you have this kind of strength… picking up the phone to call a prospect is NOTHING.

You can become a network marketing machine… full of energy and life… that will attract ENORMOUS amounts of people back to you.

When you cultivate and develop an ever increasing strength within you… your prospects will notice. Your partners in business will notice. And EVERYONE will want to work with you more because they can sense how strong you are. So the moral of the message today is this… Be ‘Willing’ to let go of what makes you comfortable. Be ‘Willing’ to let go of the known. Be ‘Willing’ to let go of who you think you are. Be ‘Willing’ to grow, be willing to learn, be willing to feel… Live your life with a passion to understand. Live your life with a passion to do all of these things… and enjoy how exhilarating it is along the way. That’s the message I have to share with you today.

When your focus is here, strength will accumulate inside of you and with that strength you can do ABSOLUTELY ANYTHING.

I’ve got one final group to say goodbye to tonight… and then it’s time to finally pack! 🙂 My mother was making fun of me for being so utterly focused on anything that has to do with business but being completely deficient in just about every ordinary task one needs to do to live life! It’s true… I’m terrible. If it’s not business related, it really doesn’t get done around here. Ouch! That’s going to bite me in the butt one day, but we all have a whole lot more lessons to learn, that’s for sure! I can tell you this though… I’m Darned Excited about this move. I just have the feeling there is a lot waiting for me in San Diego… and I’m off to discover what that is! 🙂 Yours in True Success, Jonathan Budd
