Why GIVING UP These 10 Things Is The Best Thing You Ever Do!
When we want to be happier, wealthier, or simply want to improve our lives in one way or another – we are looking for new ways for making it better and more interesting. We gain new habits, develop new skills, buy new books or clothes. Still, it seems that when we surround ourselves with familiar old things, we feel safer. But no more! Instead of collecting things that don’t bring happiness and joy to us, why not give up on some of the things we already have?
Say goodbye to things that no longer serve to you, simply throw them! And do not be too surprised if this possibility upset you.
Many of us spend their lives surrounded by unnecessary mess; mess that comes in form of old habits, thinking, belief system, people, fears …
What kind of mess you allow to distance you from the desired life? Because, if there is any, it’s time to give up on it.
Are you up for the challenge? Great – we start!
Here are 10 things you need to give up, starting today:
Give Up All Excuses
When you look back on your life, how many times did you think your excuses were far from what you most wanted to do?
Many of us use excuses every day, because of the feeling of ‘safe’ they contain. Forget them.
Give Up Accusation Games
Your life, your responsibility. Your happiness, your responsibility.
Free yourself from the need to blame other people just to feed your ego. So, achieve this and regain your power as the only creator of your life.
If you’re going to allow yourself to fall, you will always, always, always find something to complain about. So give up! No situation, no person, the event has power to make you feel bad – unless you do not permit it.
Everything is a matter of perspective. The power of positive thinking is something that should not be underestimated.
Give Up The Need To Be Right
Yes, no one likes to be wrong – this is an unfortunate “ego” feature – a trait that can lead people to extreme stress and even endanger their relationships. All I can say is, ‘I told you’! It just does not pay.
So quit. The next time you feel the urge to argue, just ask yourself: ‘Would I rather be right or would prefer to do the right thing?’ You will be surprised by how much you feel better later.
Need For Constant Control
Choose to give up your need to control everything that happens to you and around you. Events, situations, people you love, outcomes – let everything be as it is.
Your attention should be at the present moment and nowhere else, focus on the present moment and soon you will feel the difference.
Give Up Your Limiting Beliefs
Who are you to say whether something is possible or impossible? You are an unlimited creature, you create rules – make them great! From now on, give up all of the limiting beliefs.
Get rid of them and make room for big, daring dreams.
Give Up Labels
Do you sometimes name “weird” or “bad” things, people or experiences you do not understand? If so, it’s time to give up these labels.
Narrow mind creates a safe, unhappy life. Slowly open your mind, and who knows where this might take you?
Need To Adjust To Others
Give up the need to please others.
Authentic life is a happy life – quit pleasing other people and start creating the life you always wanted.
Give Up Fear
As Franklin D. Roosevelt once said:
“The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.”
Fear itself does not exist; it is a symptom, the result of our upbringing, society and the imposed experiences and belief systems of others. So quit. Do not let your fear stop, you are capable of great, wonderful things.
Give Up The Past
Easier to say than to do – but when you give up on the past, you can do wonders for your present and future happiness. Sometimes it is tempting to be craving for the past and happier times, but if you do it means that you only lack the only thing important in life – here and now.
So do not let the past throw the shadow on what you have now. Be at the moment. Be happy. Give up the past and focus on the present.
What will you give up?
