You can’t move upward and forward if you are being held back by one thing or the other.
You must let go of the unnecessary, and fan the flame of the gifts and talents you have, to move forward.
You decide what is unnecessary – generally, the past, what you can’t control (just wait for the output, if you have made the required input), and sometimes people who do not want to be part of your plan.
Let go of the weight holding back your true potential.
You will succeed.
