“The way I see it, if you want the rainbow, you gotta put up with the rain.” – Dolly Parton
Life is simply like a yo-yo.
A yo-yo is fun to play but the ups and downs of life are not always fun however we need to learn how to navigate them efficiently.
Understanding the XY yo-yo syndrome is helpful in order to manage those ups and downs.
Your own personal X factor is anything that immobilizes, derails or prevents you from growing intellectually, emotionally, spiritually, physically or financially.
Your Y is anything that you want to be, do, or have more in your life.
In this session, we’re going to talk about erasing the stuff that doesn’t work in your life thus allowing that inner Y to appear. Its appearance will manifest into incredible, joyous and Godsome happenings in your life.
The more that you understand this concept, the more that your own personal Y will show up right on schedule. Your own personal Y is synonymous with second chances in life.
Many well-intentioned people suffer hardships that are not easy to overcome but they remain stuck as no one ever taught them to pick up their eraser and start erasing part of the X that hides their inner Y.
Everyone was endowed at birth with this inner Y.
This is the juncture where choice comes into play. You can choose the X or Y fork in the road.
The X represents react and the Y represents respond. A former seminar participant inspired the following illustration with his quote, “It’s how you respond to adversity that will shape your life”.
The red coloured section prior to the fork represents a decisive moment.
If one has not embraced compartmentalization, they will always choose emotional thought over critical thought.
Choosing critical thinking allows one to move forward with intelligent, proactive behavior that leads to awesome results.
Choose the Y and place the image somewhere where it will trigger your intelligent, proactive thoughts, feelings, and actions when the yo-yo of life is in the down position.
