Release the old that is no longer working for you. When you release the old you release more than old goods, habits, patterns, and beliefs. In the process, you release energy. This creates the conditions for new energy to be able to come in. The releasing of energy is like the out-breath. Before the in-breath of new energy, there is a still point. Just for a moment, pay attention to your breathing. As you breathe out, do you notice that still point just after the exhalation and just before the inhalation? In every breath, this is the still point in which we choose life yet again. If we did not take that in-breath, life as we know it would cease. It is a choice point.
As you release the old, and you have the opportunity to make a choice, you can choose new energy that creates the conditions for a new platform for creativity. In leadership roles, this new platform for creativity can have lasting effects for your organization and its results. If you release the old that is no longer working, what are you willing to bring in to sustain new patterns, habits, and beliefs to create the future that you envision? Does this include leading a more life nurturing organization that gets its business done while simultaneously benefiting humanity and the planet?
