Business Challenges: When to Fight vs. When to Let Go

This week's question from my portal “The Neagle Code: Directions
for Life”
comes from Debra.

Neagle                 Code Question

Hi David.

My question is about letting go. When and how do you know if you need to let go or if you need to stand up for yourself and fight?

Thanks so much!

Hi Debra.

The answer to your question of when to let go depends on your attachment to the outcome.

On the surface, it seems standing up for yourself would often be the right course of action. However, there are times when the issue just isn’t that important and it’s better to walk away.

The way to think about when you need to let go is to look at why you care.

If you have a strong need to be right, you may find yourself fighting about a matter of no consequence.

In another instance, you may be fighting to keep a client that isn’t ideal.  In both cases, choosing to “stand up for yourself” is likely a distraction of your subconscious trying to take you off course.

When faced with the decision to let go or take a stand, ask yourself if making a stand will be for your growth or if it’s coming from a place of fear.

If it’s coming from fear, it is a sure sign you need to let go.
