“Jerry used to ask, he asked us this question so many times because he was helping people financially. And first they’d lose the boat, then they’d lose the car and then they’d lose the other car and then they’d lose the house and then they would go all the way to the bottom and then things would bounce back and turn around for them. He saw it over and over and over again. And he said: “why do they have to go all the way to the bottom before things turn around? Why couldn’t they just lose the boat and it would turn around? Why couldn’t they just lose the boat and the first car and it would turn around? Why do they have to go all the way to the bottom before it turns around? And we said: “Because it isn’t until it goes all the way down that most people give up the battle, that they just finally say “All right, I give up, I give up, I let go”. It’s a letting go, it’s a letting go of the belief that you’re making it happen though your actions instead of accepting that you are deserving of it.
We think it’s because of the comparison that you make with each other in your wanting to prove your own worthiness by discounting theirs. And every time you discount somebody else’s worthiness, you diminish your own. You’ve got to be a well-wisher for them too, you see…
When you’re in this competitive spirit where you try to outdo somebody else, in your pushing against them, you’re actually pushing against you. So there is just letting go of all of it. “
