When Giving Up is the Best Option

Today, on your self-development journey, dedicate time to uncovering the thoughts, habits and beliefs that do not support you.

Ask yourself: What is holding me back? What is stealing my time and creating negative energy? What am I doing that is stopping me from being happy and successful?

Dig deep and be honest with yourself. If necessary, make a list. Once you've identified what isn't supporting you, it's time to take action. Here's what you do ...

You give up what isn't helping you. 

If you think that giving up a habit is almost impossible or you haven't got the will-power, then change your beliefs. It's all in YOUR mind. If you really want a better life, you have to give up the stuff that doesn't nurture you. 

Be resolute and believe that you can. Realize the benefits. Giving something up is easy when you are committed to making positive changes in your life. 

What negative habits and beliefs are you holding on to? 

Are you a smoker? Is smoking affecting your health and ruining your social life? You bet it is! Maybe it's time to give up smoking

Is your obsessive behavior making life difficult for you and your loved ones? Is it stealing your energy and time? Most likely! Well, perhaps it's time you really did something about your obsessive compulsive disorder and give up the behavior patterns causing it. Yes, you really can! 

Frustrated by your shyness? Feel like your lack of confidence is holding you back? Then it's time to give up the introverted you and be the life and soul of the party. 

Walt Disney once said that change is inevitable, but growth is optional. And, sometimes, in order to grow, you have to give up what's holding you back. 

So, step into your power and reclaim your life. 

The only time to give up those negative thoughts, beliefs and habits is NOW! 

So, what are you giving up today?
