We hear it all of the time. Surrender. Turn it over to God. Surrender to the Universe. Let it go and let it be. It all sounds so amazing in theory, right? If we could just learn to surrender our worries, our fears and all of the stuff that weighs us down over to some unseen higher power, life would be that much easier.
We both know that it’s much easier said than practiced, and that is what we’re tapping into today. We’re going to chat about what it actually means to surrender, to have faith and to truly “let it go.”
Faith is a finicky thing. 75% of Americans say they believe in a higher power and give it some kind of label. God. Universe. Source. Spirit. Inner Being. 75% of Americans identify as believing that there is a force greater than themselves in control of everything. 75% of Americans say things like “everything happens for a reason” or “if it’s meant to be, it will be.”

So, what happens? You are rehashing the experience, and it's keeping that low vibration active in your life, and the Universe responds in kind. You attract lots of things you don't want to happen.
Right now, it seems as if the entire world has a grudge against Network Marketers. Whether it's the annoyance of the pushy posts on social media, the follow up emails to buy stuff, the constant conversation about products or the never ending stream of sales texts, I can see why.
Admittedly, I used to be one of them. I used to be annoyed by the network marketers who showed up in my newsfeed. I used to get irritated. I used to think of that career as "less than" that of a typical entrepreneur.
It was 2 summers ago when I was sitting in a theater at a weekend long mastermind training with Gabby Bernstein. I remember the moment vividly when she said, "The thing you're resisting the most is the path you're meant to follow." In that moment, I found myself shifting, thinking, uncomfortable and agitated. It was all centered around the network marketing industry, and it took Gabby's words of wisdom to kick me out of my own shit and into a new space....
