What is holding you back? Is there something holding you back but you can’t quite put your finger on it? Maybe it is the fact that you are holding on to what is no longer you. Looking back at your life, are you identifying with an older version of you? One that played a certain powerful role but now your roles have shifted?

Throughout my years of coaching, I find that this is often the ONE thing that holds people back. When people identify with a person that is no longer who they are. Letting go of that person that you may feel defined by can be hard but it is imperative to grow and evolve.

Holding on can be the ONE THING holding us back.

In order for us to become the person we are meant to be, we must let go of the person we use to be. ⁣⁣I believe that so often we live in the shell of the person we once were but inside we are nothing like we use to be.

Our lives change, priorities shift and goals evolve. Our situations and circumstances change based on our life experiences, over time. ⁣⁣How could we be the same person if years have passed and physically, mentally, spiritually and emotionally we are not the same? How could we be?

⁣⁣I know for a fact I am in a completely different space, on so many levels. My goals are completely different than they once were. Priorities have shifted and overall mindset is in a higher state of understanding of myself and what is important for me today. ⁣⁣My old self- yes I recognize her but am I her? Absolutely NOT! ⁣⁣If we spend our life trying to be the person we once were, we are fooling ourselves to think we will ever evolve.

⁣⁣Part of reaching our highest and best self is learning to let go of who you use to be and embracing our full attention and energy into what is. ⁣⁣

Why do we get stuck in our old selves?

Is it out of fear, frustration, confusion or pure ignorance? ⁣⁣

Is it because who or what we once were is who we think defines us as a person? ⁣⁣

We are not defined by our past nor controlled by a single chapter in our story.⁣⁣ Maybe the resistance of letting go of who we once were is holding us back from becoming who we are really meant to be…⁣⁣

Have the bravery and courage to stand up to your old self, honor who he/she was and let go so you can elevate your life and finally tap into your authentic real potential. ⁣⁣

Just a reminder that the you then was amazing but the you today is even more incredible and deserves more of your love and attention. ⁣❤️ Gina
