Sometimes you just need to let go. Sure. You may have spent countless hours on a project way back when. But that work may not represent who you are anymore. If anything, it might just be serving to hold you back.
Did you know? If snakes fail to shed their skin, they die.
And sure, perhaps that’s a little too dramatic but the concept is still the same.
If you fail to let go of old work you never get to grow into the greater version of who you are meant to be. Instead, you hang on for dear life. Clinging to your old work in the hopes that it will get you where you want to go. When in reality, you need to be a little more like Marie Kondo.
Acknowledge the work for what’s it’s done for you in your life, both personally and professionally. Then acknowledge the fact that since it’s already served its purpose, then it is absolutely ok to let go. And by letting go, you create space. And with that new space, you finally give yourself the opportunity to become who you were always meant to become.
