Thought Leaders Zone: You’re Ready To Be UNhitched
I first discovered the idea of what I like to call ‘being UNhitched’ during a yoga retreat when the instructor challenged us to hold a Warrior II Pose...for 10 minutes.
It was at the 3-minute mark where I remember having feelings and thoughts of desperation, anger, and even disaster! I was convinced that my arms were going to fall off (which has never happened in the long history of yoga).
The experience taught me a great deal about the benefits of remaining UNhitched - a practice that has been a major contributing factor for both my successes and the most fulfilled moments and experiences of my life.
Here’s how to put it into practice for instant results:
What You Focus On Expands
Choose what you focus on with care. Are you focused on the shorter term outcome of a project? Or are you focused on the bigger picture of how it all fits with WHO you are and WHY you are (your purpose and freedom)?
Think of it like this. In sales, when you focus on ‘the sale’ itself, often it will elude you.
Every great salesperson knows that the focus must be on the bigger vision. Real estate agents, car sales professionals, even travel agents, sell dreams - not products.
Even in dating - no one wants to go on a second date with someone who is desperate for the second date. Am I right?
Being UNhitched to an outcome provides freedom and space for success.
When you practice a healthy detachment and independence from expectations, you will attract exactly what you need and want.
Be A Visionary, Now
There have been several instances in my own life where I’ve tried to ‘hitch my wagon’ onto someone else because I’ve had this romantic idea that doing things with a partner would be easier, more fun, and result in success faster.
While it’s absolutely critical to surround yourself with amazing people and to have trusted advisors, coaches, and mentors, you will do yourself a disservice if you undermine your own vision by waiting for the right moment or for others to validate your ideas.
Not only will this slow you down and ultimately be a harder road to success, but it will also cause you to suffer from ‘comparanoia’ - a serious affliction for entrepreneurs!
Especially when you are early on in a new venture - just do it! BE the visionary. Bring ideas to life quickly and mostly on your own. That’s not to say you can’t have people help you out. Just lead the charge. Make decisions quickly and get your idea exposed and market tested.
What exactly are you waiting for anyway? Your tribe is waiting for you!
Consider taking an UNhitched approach to all failure and success, since neither affords you a sense of purpose or fulfillment anyway.
Being UNhitched allows you to step into your own power and creates possibility. Possibility represents freedom. Freedom is waiting for you!
You’re ready now to be UNhitched and UNstoppable!
