Play to Win and Surrender

Written By Millen Livis


Today, I chose to write about some lessons I learned from my journey…and share them with you!

My journey to Financial Independence transformed EVERYTHING about my personality, my views on success and failure, my values and goals, and my priorities in life.

I truly believe that this transformation in my personality helped me experience a drastically different reality than I used to have.

I literally went From being financially broke, emotionally broken, alone, and ashamed To living the reality where I travel the world when I want, live in resort-like locations in the South of France and South Florida, have a happy marriage, and fulfilling work.

I want to share with you the first lesson I learned from my fascinating journey to Financial Independence. 

“Play to Win” and “Surrender”

I used to have a LOT of fears… 

Fear of being homeless, fear of being dependent, fear of not living my full potential, etc.

As you can see, I was “planning” my life experiences from a very “scary place.”

These fears were paralyzing…. 

I felt “why bother”? “It’s not meant for me!” “It’s just not realistic for me”…

At some point, I was close to giving up on myself…and on my life.

But then, by the grace of God, I met a life coach who helped me shift my perspective on everything – success, failure, possibilities… 

So, I turned 180 degrees – became a certified yoga and meditation instructor, and a student of science of conciseness. 

I also chose to “be in the arena” and “play to win” – learn how to manage money intentionally, how to invest strategically, how to focus on abundance in my life… No. Matter. What.

I used to fly around the country to attend investment conferences and trainings, so I could spend time with driven and ambitious people and learn from great mentors. 

I have invested in myself generously.

I would learn.

I would apply. 

I would tweak and adjust.

I would focus.

My confidence grew. As well as my self-worth. 

Finally. my experience with strategic investing started to be reflected in my financial worth.

I also learned not to give up when things felt overwhelming… 

I’d take a break from my work, observe what was happening for me (my feelings), and just allow myself to feel them…fear, regret, sadness, grief… 

I would not resist any feelings but instead, stay still and allow myself to feel whatever was happening for me. 

And surrender…to Intelligent Love. 

Then get back “on the horse” and keep going.

Because “I’m in it to win it.”
