My personal motto that sums up Letting Go of Stuff® is::
“Think Differently, BE Better!”
Letting Go of Stuff applies to business and at the individual level. I use the concepts in my book as the foundation for business coaching, as well as the supporting premise for the personal development coaching.
The definition of Letting Go of Stuff is broken in to two parts.
PART 1 – Letting Go is about consciously choosing to focus on the things that you can control, are applicable to your goals, and that are currently on your life’s dashboard.
PART 2 – Stuff is a matter of a particular kind, yet unspecified, that is introduced in to the body by humans. In other words, our thoughts become one main symptom of our STUFF.
For one to move forward (let go), one must focus on what can be controlled and release the energy that is being placed on the things that can not be controlled. This is done, quite simply, by managing one’s thoughts.
I am not talking about only making positive affirmations , or thinking positively; although when combined with other techniques, these work well. I am talking about tapping in to the core beliefs of a person, becoming more aware and conscious of internal conversations and thought patterns, and choosing to change those patterns and beliefs.
In business, Letting Go of Stuff is about helping the owner(s) of the business to identify what fears, shortcomings, and thought patterns are interfering with the growth and development of that business. Often with not for profits the board of directors keeps the organization stuck in a rut.
Also with not for profits, the executive levels sometimes get so caught up in the cause, they forget about the fact that they are running a business.
