Here is a list of 15 things which, if you give up on them, will make your life a lot easier and much, much happier.
We hold on to so many things that cause us a great deal of pain, stress and suffering – and instead of letting them all go, instead of allowing ourselves to be stress free and happy – we cling on to them.
Here we go:
1. Give up your need to always be right
It’s ok being wrong, it’s ok to make some mistakes, you are not an exception.
2. Give up your need for control
Let yourself be free from unnecessary controls in life. You don’t need to control everything in your life.
3. Give up on blame
Take the charge, take the responsibility, be a leader. Don’t blame, it never works.
4. Give up your self-defeating self-talk
Don’t give yourself reasons for failures. You are born to win, and failures are milestones in your journey to success. Try it even if you have slightest chance, don’t discourage yourself.
5. Give up your limiting beliefs
6. Give up complaining
7. Give up the luxury of criticism
8. Give up your need to impress others
9. Give up your resistance to change
10. Give up labels
You don’t need it so just give it up.
11. Give up on your fears
Fears are not an easy thing to give up but at the same time fears should become strong enough to dominate your will.
12. Give up your excuses
You won’t need to give any excuse to yourself, start doing instead of making excuses.
13. Give up the past
Past must remain in past, don’t let your present and future have any affect because of your past.
14. Give up attachment
Give up attachments with useless things and unworthy people, old memories that makes you unhappy, bad experiences, emotional events.
15. Give up living your life to other people’s expectations
Start living a life that you love, start doing things that you find best for you.
