Power of Surrender
To See the Whole Video, Go To – Power of Surrender
Below is a transcription of this video Hey, this is Justin, and we’re going to talk about the power of surrender. I keep getting this lesson multiple times, and especially when it’s in relationship with people who are actually important to me. So I learned something pretty recently. A man who’s been married for 25 years was sharing about taking the dishes out. He says he takes the dishes out or puts the dishes away because it’s important to his wife.
There’s a lot of things I don’t want to do and there’s a lot of things that I think aren’t that important personally, but they only become important because they’re important to my partner. That’s the key thing. If something’s important to my partner or something’s important to your partner, whoever, in a relationship, then it’s important to actually take that on. To get what we want, we’ve got to make those sacrifices to do the things. I used to think we should just do the things we loved, do things that were important, but you got to make those sacrifices for our partners to get the things that we actually want to get in the future and to have the relationship that we want to have. The mantra comes from important to them, then it should be important to you, and doesn’t make a difference what it is or how it makes you feel. I believe we get put with somebody not for any particular reason and we can say that we’re attracted to people, but we get put with somebody because that person helps us fill in the holes in who we are. There will be a lot of tests that come along with that. If you’re in a situation where you find yourself resisting doing things for your partner, whoever that is – that could be a business partner. I’m talking particularly about my wife – realize that’s an opportunity to surrender and to give in to what’s available and to just give to that person. I think that’s where some of the greatest love and the greatest relationships come from.
Thanks a lot for listening to this message. Make today an awesome day.
