There are things in your life that are sabotaging your chances of living a fulfilling, successful life. Here are 5 things I believe that you need to get rid of in your life now:
1. GET RID OF NEGATIVE PEOPLE
You are the average of the 5 people you hang out with most, and if they are negative people, then that’s what you’re going to be.
Don’t let negative people tell you how the world is supposed to be! Find that out for yourself. If you want to be better, then spend more time with people you look up to, people who are where you want to be in life. The more positive people you hang out with the better. Your positive friends don’t waste their time with losers, and you will learn that from them, and before you know it, you will start having a more positive life.
2. GET RID OF ALL THE BS
I have this conversation with my clients all the time, and is one of the main things we focus on.
What you do daily to achieve your goals in life can always be interrupted with a whole lot of BS! That’s right, bullshit! These are things that you do that do not reflect the things you want to achieve. You waste so much time on things that don’t serve your purpose, things like watching TV! How many hours in a week do you spend watching commercials? If you watch a program that goes for a half hour, you are watching 10 minutes of commercials. If you watch an average of 6 hours of TV per day, that would be an average of 1 hour of commercials you watch per day, so in over a week you’ve spent, on average, 7 hours watching commercials. This is only one bit of bullshit in your life, we haven’t looked at others yet. Social media and video games are just couple of other things to add to the list of BS. My tip; At the end of the day, write down everything you have done. If it doesn’t align with your goals, then it’s BS.
3. GET RID OF THE OPINIONS OF OTHERS
If you had to wait to get the approval of everyone to do something you wanted to do, you wouldn’t do anything. Just remember, it is none of your business what others think of you. Focus on what your goals are, and stop worrying about what others think. All the successful people out there don’t give a rat’s ass what others think of them. That’s why they are not afraid to take risks.
4. GET RID OF NEGATIVE THOUGHTS
This is a really tough one. Our true potential is limited by our negative thoughts. It’s a battle we face every day, and it’s something that some of the most successful people have to face too, however they discipline themselves to be aware of their thoughts and practice changing them. If we can learn to identify when we are experiencing these thoughts, and try to train our minds to just let it brush by like a tumbleweed in the desert, we will start to see some changes in our lives. When you start to replace negative thoughts with positive ones, no matter how big or small, you will start to see some positive results.
5. GET RID OF GIVING UP
Now that we have some solid things to work on, we just have to see it through. It’s so common that when people find things getting a little tough, they choose to give up, just quit. This is something we need to change. If it were easy, then everyone would do it! It’s the disciplined, hard-working people that achieve what others won’t. So if you are looking to make some changes in your life, and you want to achieve some amazing things, then see it through! When you feel like throwing in the towel, that’s when you need to have a go.
