We cannot move forward without letting go. What we let go of is varied: it could be relationships, desires, sins and bad habits, or other things. Do you want to make progress in your race and move forward into a better future? Then you must learn to let go. No progress can be made without sacrifice. Once you have sacrificed, then your progress will come.
