Every person in this world deserves to be successful and happy. For that, you have to learn to let go of things that are not working.
The best way to make the good things happen in your life is to change your habits and thoughts that are not helping you progress.
Here are 16 things to give up to start being successful:
1. Think small
Broaden your horizons and think big to grow. Sometimes the process is painful, but it’s worth it.
2. Try to be perfect
Perfectionism leads you straight to failure. It’s not a quest for excellence, but a way of telling yourself that you will never be good enough.
3. Focus on your weaknesses
We all have weak points. Work on them, but focus more on your strengths.
4. Wait for luck
Luck is based on preparation and hard work. The harder you work towards your goals, the luckier you will be.
5. Avoid change
The changes will happen, with or without your permission. Manage change when you can and try to adapt to it.
6. Trying to please everyone
The surest path to failure is to try to please everyone. Work to please only yourself and those who are important to you.
7. Living in the past
Your future begins today, and your past is already past.
8. Blame others
Blaming your parents or your company is a waste of time. Instead, think about how to change your current situation to get ahead in life.
9. Having a grudge against someone
Grudge negatively affects your contentment and happiness.
19. Say “I can’t”
Don’t give up just because things are tough, and don’t talk about yourself in a negative way.
11. Try to never make mistakes
Avoiding calculated risks and never daring is the biggest mistake you can make.
If you spend time complaining about yesterday, you won’t have time to make tomorrow better.
Losers gossip. Instead, try to focus on your personal and professional endeavours, and when you talk to people, always be compassionate and supportive.
14. Thinking that you can’t make a difference
15. Compare yourself to others
Comparing yourself to others doesn’t work. Don’t worry about what other people are doing.
16. Spending time with negative people
Negative people are bad for your health, their dark thoughts discourage ambitious people who want to do great things.
