How To Ditch Your Ego & Find Happiness
Updated: Aug 19, 2022
Have you heard the phrase “lead with love” or something with a similar notion? A life leading with love sounds great… almost like a fairytale, but how is that tangible?
A Return To Love by Marianne Williamson is the roadmap to your fairytale life of pure happiness. Whether you seek to improve your relationships, career/purpose, or overall well-being, this powerful book offers you the insights and actionable tools to live the best version of your life.
Did you know your happiness relies on your ability to quiet your ego and surrender yourself to a higher power? If you can learn how to give yourself over to a higher power (God or non-denomination), the missing piece of life’s abundance will make its way back to you. This isn’t about a particular religion or your beliefs (or perhaps lack thereof) for God, it’s simply about believing in what’s beyond this lifetime and the first step to that is believing in love. The Universe, the collective, God; it doesn’t matter what you call it, what’s more, important is being aware that we are simply tiny pieces to a much larger whole.
A Return To Love unlocks the driver of unhappiness: fear. Whether your unhappiness is driven by sickness, death, resentment, anxiety, depression, etc. when you strip away the details and look at life from a pure perspective, all bad things are rooted in fear. How much of your happiness and well-being rely on your partner, family, or those in your inner circle? Most of our negativity is a result of our experiences and attitude toward those around us. We are empowering those around us to oversee our happiness and we cannot control them, what they do, or how it has a ripple effect on our lives. Instead of handing the control of your happiness to someone else, give it over to a more powerful force that is aligned with your soul. If you find yourself on replay in your mind about people and situations in your life, it’s time to release those burdens around you and let God do the thinking for you.
Your best life doesn’t consist of struggling, fighting, resentment, disappointment… Williamson identifies the role of your ego, your fears, and your limitations as humans. It’s when those limitations are met, that miracles happen. It is no secret that many people find God when they hit their lowes
