Episode 45: Surrender is Giving You Power, Not Taking it Away

Jan 18, 2023


When you hear the word surrender, what comes to mind? Is it something negative like giving in to lose an argument just to appease someone? Or can it be something more positive? Regardless, it can be hard to let go and put that trust in someone or something else.

In this episode, we are going to answer the question… how does surrendering actually give you power, instead of taking it away?

The answer is powerful, and I think it’s going to surprise you. Let's get started.


 Together we unpack:

  • The new way of looking at surrender. (1:33)
  • The “Word of the Year” trend and why I cringe. (2:26)
  • What it ACTUALLY means to surrender. (6:44)
  • Surrender and acceptance - same or different? (9:49)
  • What being present in the moment can teach you. (11:02)
  • Join me for a brief "Let Go" meditation exercise. (11:25)

If you are in that place where you are ready to surrender...   if you are eager to raise your hand and be ready to do whatever it takes, I am here to be your coach, your mentor, and your champion who believes in you until you can believe in yourself. Your next step is to TAKE THIS FUN 2-MINUTE QUIZ and find out how much gratitude and grit you have.
