Why You Should Give Up

This sounds silly. What kind of advice is giving up, after all? Its the antithesis of the base of our society. We promote grinding. We promote working until we exhaustion to achieve our goals and our dreams. But that is precisely why we must give up to find happiness.

When we continuously work to exhaustion and burn ourselves out, we are doing the exact opposite of what we aim to do. By taking on too much at once, we overall ourselves and force ourselves to come up with mediocre results and projects just for the sake of making things worth it and saying we did something.

But anything isn’t something. Simply putting out results does not mean that it is anything of substance. Sometimes, to produce the best results, you need to give up. Give up the stress and the pressure. Give up forcing yourself to be or conform to certain ideals.

When you give yourself permission to give up, you also give yourself the freedom to expand your perception. You are no longer bound by expectations or stuck in the view of your blinders. Giving up and releasing expectations gives you the ability and the freedom to explore things from different viewpoints. It will give you a moment to reflect on what you were working on and determine if it is truly for you, and if it is, you will see if you are approaching it in the best manner.

This is detachment, essentially. Giving up. Surrounding. Loosing control. Having faith in divine timing. Whatever you want to call it, it’s all the same message: by releasing the strong need to control every aspect of your life, you somehow inadvertently lose control the most. You lose meaning the most. In order to produce the best work and live your best life you must give up where things are not working. Beauty blooms where you let it breathe.
