“Getting over a painful experience is much like crossing monkey bars. You have to let go at some point in order to move forward.” - Unknown

Let go of the stuff that doesn’t serve you.

If you don’t, you will be stuck and being stuck sucks!

Look at all the baby steps of your journey as monkey bars.

How can you possibly move forward when you are still hanging onto the last bar?

Learn to manage those monkey bars early in life, and you are well on your way towards managing many of life’s issues.

Believe that you can let go of the last bar and begin to move forward.

This is not an easy task for most people, as very early in life we were taught to be dwellers and not movers.

We were taught to dissect the issue to smithereens and dwell on it until it overwhelmed and ultimately incapacitated us.


You do have what it takes.

Let it go and begin to move forward with faith and press onward.

Hindsight creates 20/20 vision.

The monkey bars in your life are there for a very specific purpose.

Grasp one at a time and embrace your life with passion, persistence, determination, love and dogged, unswerving tenacity.

You have it now.

Your own very, personal x factor in your psychological house will attempt to convince you that grasping the next monkey bar is stupid and purposeless.

However, if you have read any of my previous writings, you will absolutely understand that this infamous x factor will always attempt to derail you from your greatness.

You want to get on with your game but it will continually implant toxic thoughts into your being.

It will convince you not to grab onto the next bar.  

We all have a little kryptonite in our psyche.

Our task now is to identify this kryptonite that continues to steal our power and derails our possibility of not playing it safe any longer.

This stuff shows up disguised in many different forms. 

You need to elevate your level of awareness and frequency in order to identify them. 

Grab onto your next monkey bar.
