EXCESS BAGGAGE ONCE WE ACQUIRE IT (NOT BY CHOICE!) WHAT DO WE DO WITH IT?

When it comes to relationships both professional & personal! Excess baggage can be a real M-F’er for anyone/everyone. That! is Because when we came into the world. We did not have a manual in tow at all. As we grew up our parents themselves did not know what to do with it. At that time no one ever even heard of it.

So what did we do? We held on to it not knowing what to do. As e got older little did we know that when we did carry it over into our life. That it would do more harm than good.

For example! There was a repot years ago. About a couple of teens that found on the Internet ways to make a pipe bomb. The assembled it. When it was finished! The did not know what to do with it.

That is the exact same way we do with excess baggage! We acquire it! But what do we do with it?

Solution! : ‘LET IT GO”! We cannot let our past interfere with even our professional and personal life. Because in both way. Carryovers do come in the way of the people we meet.

Another example of this is! Let’s say a woman who is doing business with a client/customer. Gets “HIT ON” by her client. Even though! The client does not know that she is in a relationship! She gets “Bent-out-of-shape” about it! There is an old saying: “You cannot get into trouble for something you do not know”! Let’ say because she has been hit on by so many men! That she thinks “They are all are the same”! And what does that make her? “Defensive” towards anyone/everyone who is a man! That! is Excess baggage! If the man did know! Clearly! That is a very different story.

Because of her and her excess baggage. She can burn her business as well as personal bridges before/after they were ever crossed!

Or! In one’s own personal life. Whatever happened then! Is left in then, not now! Unfortunately! Even if one of our family members said/did something to us! Even then! It becomes excess baggage.

What do we do? Let it go! It’s like! If you have a problem. And you say to someone: “This problem is eating away at me”. Guess again! How can a problem eat away at you? It’s invisible!,

With excess baggage. Just let it go. What people said/did to you. Cannot be done over! “REALLY”.

I have did so many things to others as they did to me. But I do not let that get in the way of meeting and making friends and business professionals at all. Why? Because it does not make any sense to hold on to something that you cannot hold in your hands or even reverse the process.

Whatever the problems others have about or against us. The problems are out there! Not in here!
