Letting Go of Your PAST: The Process…

Holding on to the past

The Process of Letting Go of Your PAST…

Don’t you wish life were just ABC and 123? Wouldn’t it be so simple if you had a plan for letting go of your past so you could grab hold of your awesome future?

Believe it or not, there is! And here is the process…

  1. Step one
  2. Prepare your heart and mind to let go.

  3. Step two
  4. Prepare your life to let go.

  5. Step three
  6. Choose to experience the newness that letting go will bring.

  7. Step four
  8. Gain a different perspective because you are letting go.

  9. Step five
  10. Enjoy the new journey that life offers because you are letting go.

Everything is a process! In order for you to enjoy scrambled eggs for breakfast, you must follow a process.

You can’t just place two eggs in a skillet and turn the stove on and expect scrambled eggs! First of all, you must crack open the eggs! If you just place two whole eggs in the skillet and turn on the heat, all you are going to enjoy is cleaning up a mess!

And that’s what your life will become if you don’t follow a distinct, specific process of letting go of your PAST. Each step has to be taken seriously and on purpose so you can reach your goal.

Although the above steps may seem simplistic, and it may seem as though you can skip step three and move forward to step four, don’t do it! Each step is designed for you to process and progress so you may achieve the optimal results of letting go of your PAST.

The desire of The Drill Sergeant of Life is that you walk in personal Power, Productivity, and Prosperity. Our posts about the Process of Letting Go of Your PAST will enable you to move forward in your quest as never before. If you are finding benefit from our posts, please feel free to pass them along to someone who may not be at the level of letting go of the PAST that you are!

Stay tuned! The BEST is yet to come! God is faithful!

Your PAST and How It Affects Everything You Do…

past will let go of you

How does your PAST affect everything you do?

Do you need to be in charge?

Did you ever stop to think that the reason you operate like this is because someone or something in your PAST took your power?

Think about it. In your PAST, when you were abused, you lost some of your personal power.

Neglected or rejected? You lost some more of your personal power.

When you seemingly failed at something that was important to you, it was difficult to bounce back because you couldn’t regain that place of power in your life.

Oftentimes, when dealing with your PAST issues, you will find that your power has been zapped. Now, this may or may not necessarily be because you have given this power away. No, instead, it is because you believed you were powerless in the face of the opposition.

Nothing could be further from the truth!!

As a child in your PAST abusive situations, you were probably not able to say, “No!”

As a matter of fact, during the incident(s), you were probably made to believe, “You can’t do anything about the abuse and must accept it.”

But, we don’t stay children always!

Unfortunately, as we grow older, those same mindsets tend to follow. Now that we are older, we have the power to say, “No!”

But, because we don’t realize the same mindset follows us, we don’t access that power.

Today, give yourself permission to overcome your PAST. Give yourself permission to leave your past behind and embrace the awesome future God has prepared for you. Do these three things:

1. Get a clear assessment of your PAST and how it has affected you going forward.
2. Start cleaning out the archives of your life. I can show you how.
3. Prepare to move forward into the incredible future in front of you!!

Over the next several weeks, we are going to delve into the File Cabinet of Life© and start cleaning things out. Believe it or not, there are many things in there that should be discarded. Your paradigm will shift and you will find a clear pathway to power, productivity, and prosperity as you heal from your PAST and those things that have hindered you for so long.

The Drill Sergeant of Life truly wants to see you rise up out of the ashes of your PAST and receive ALL God has created for you! This is what personal freedom is all about!

Leave your thoughts and don’t forget to like and share today’s message. Help transform, motivate, and inspire those closest to you, even those that are not!

Until next time!

God is faithful!

Breathe and Let Go

How about a Human Code of Conduct?

I recently spoke for the Westminster Optimist Club here in Westminster, Colorado. I really enjoy speaking for Optimist Clubs. If you haven’t before, go to and check out their creed. Their creed is something that we as human beings should adopt as a Human Code of Conduct. Why? Below, I share several of the pledges that members of the Optimist Club adhere to. I also share my comments about these pledges. But I want you, YOU, to add your own comments. Let’s see if we can start something that will change the way we live!

Promise yourself –

To be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind. – Do you realize how easily others can come in and disturb your peace of mind? As I have said before, and let me reiterate: sometimes you have to let some folks go, at least for a season, so that you can maintain your peace of mind. Don’t let others have control of you and disturb you. Let those people go and do YOU!

To talk health, happiness, and prosperity to every person you meet – If you spent most of your days talking health, happiness and prosperity to every person you met, how much time would you have to gripe about inconsequential stuff? Stop sweating the small stuff! The Drill Sergeant of Life says: Get out there and share what needs to be shared!!!

To make all your friends feel that there is something in them – Many of your friends are going through some struggles. Believe it or not, you hold the key that will make a difference in their lives. Now, I am not talking about enabling your friends. When you enable, you do more harm than good. What I am talking about here is encouraging your friends; help them see that there is more to them than what meets the eye. Help them to dream again. Help them to have faith in themselves again. Soon, you will see your friends blossom as never before!

To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own – Oh, boy! Let’s be honest here: how many family members do you have that hate when you do well? How many so-called friends can you name who run away from you when you prosper and are doing well? Yet, these same folks seem to cluster around you when you are having a bit of a hard time and offer advice that THEYwouldn’t even take. Hopefully, you are very excited when others do well. If not, change that dynamic! I have noticed in my travels that there are very few who are enthusiastic when I succeed; even though they indicated they would be beforehand. Again; let these people go! Do YOU!

To give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others – Now, I have to bring up the Bible for this one. Remember that little scripture that talks about removing the log from your own eye before you consider removing the splinter from someone else’s eye? Well, that’s what this part of the Optimist Creed is talking about. We spend so much time criticizing others, we have no clue that we need to do some things in our lives to improve US so we can move to the next level and perhaps help someone else out!

OK, I’ve talked about only 5 of the 10 elements of The Optimist Creed. Please check out the rest of them at You will be glad you did.

Hey, just want each of you to know that I really appreciate you. Thanks for reading! Please share this post with others!
