To go higher means to cut loose from whatever anchors are holding you down…. It could be that YOU are the anchor. Realizing that you are hindering yourself from moving forward and going higher could be the biggest eye opener you will ever face. But to realize it, face it, learn from it and move from it will be one of the greatest moments of your life.
Hebrews 12:1 tells us to “lay aside every weight”. Our desire to move from where we are, to moving forward, going higher should compel us to soul search. It’s not enough to merely look in the mirror of our life and see that over the years we haven’t accomplished our dreams. We must go deeper, look further and dream with great expectations, which means to challenge myself.
Each of us could perhaps admit that we have lost some time. We have lost time due to our own self destructive ways, our own self destructive decision making. There is no greater time than right now to take that leap of faith and divorce your future from your past.
Some of the synonyms of divorce are to separate, to split-up, to break away from. If we don’t separate from those old lazy, unproductive ways we will never soar to the height that God has planned for us. We will never reach our God-given potential when we are the perpetrator and the victim of our own destruction.
Divorcing yourself is becoming fed up with personal selfish, self-destructive, unmotivated, careless, senseless ways. If the decisions you have made in the past, has given you the seat you now sit in and the seat you’re sitting in is nonproductive, then you have caused your own destructive path. It’s time to file for divorce from yourself, from your old lingering destructive ways.
God has great things in store for you and He has given each of us a measure of faith (Romans 12:3). A measure of faith is the standard by which we constantly and correctly appraise ourselves. If you are to soar to reach your potential and beyond you must be willing to lose every anchor thats slowing or holding you down. I once wrote that you are your greatest asset, but you are also your greatest liability.
When the time comes for Spring cleaning, most of us find it difficult to let of old items we have stored for that rainy day. We tend to want to continue to hold on to those items and all we do is just move them from one place to another and pack them back. When we evaluate ourselves we find that same mentality when it comes to our old ways. We dream of more, but we find ourselves settling for less. Get the divorce papers ready, you need to file today to separate from your old ways of settling, your old ways of barely getting by, and your old ways of taking the shortcut.
Letting go of yourself is not as easy as it may sound, but it does have great rewards. Stop settling for where you are. You must face who you are, where you are, what you have allowed and what you are missing out on, then be driven by a hunger for more and let go of those hindering anchors in your life. Greatness is already inside of you, you just have to cut the rope to dead beat anchors then soar. Dr. C.C. Grayson
