It is high time as human beings that we should do ourselves justice. Doing justice in this context implies that we should increase the frequency at which we give ourselves credit. We need to appreciate the little we have or even the little that we have achieved. We should avoid focusing on the negative, avoid stress and also instances where we find ourselves whining about how life has given us lemons instead of pineapples!
It is only fair that everyone appreciates where they are and as they do that, they should make it a point to GIVE UP on the following:
1. The Shame of Past Failures
Your past does not equal your future. All that matters is what you do right now
2. Letting the opinions of others control your life
It’s not what others think, it’s what you think about yourself that counts. You have to do exactly what’s best for you and your life, not what’s best for everyone else
3. Being indecisive about what you want
You will never leave where you are until you decide where you would rather be.
4. Procrastinating on the goals that matter to you
Accept the responsibility. Also remember that the best time to plant a tree is twenty years ago. The second best time is now!
5. Choosing to do nothing
You don’t get to choose how you are going to die, or when
You can only decide how you are going to live, right now
Every day is a new chance to choose.
6. Your need to be right
Aim for success but never give up your right to be wrong.
Because when you do, you will also lose your ability to learn new things and move forward with your life
7. Running from problems that should be fixed
Face these issues, fix the problems, communicate, appreciate, forgive and LOVE the people in your life who deserve
8. Making excuses rather than decisions
Most long term failures are the outcome of people who make excuses instead of decisions
9. Overlooking the positive points in your life
What you see often depends entirely on what you’re looking for.
You will have a hard time ever being happy if you aren’t thankful for the good things in your life right now
10. Not appreciating the present Moment
Too often we try to accomplish something big without realizing that the greatest part of life is made up of little things.
Only then shall we be able to enjoy every step of our way…
