10 Things You Must Give Up to Move Forward

#1 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.

#2 The Shame of Past Failures

  • Your past does not equal your future.

  • All that matters is what you do right now.

#3 Being Indecisive About What You Want

  • You will never leave where you are until you decide where you would rather be.

  • Make a decision to decide what you want, and then pursue it passionately.

#4 Procrastinating on the Goals That Matter to You

  • There are two primary choices in life: To accept conditions as they exist, or accept the responsibility for changing them.

  • The best time to plant a tree is 20 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...

  • If you do, you will also lose your ability to learn new things & move forward with your life.

#7 Running From Problems That Should Be Fixed

  • Stop running!

  • Face these issues, fix the problems, communicate, appreciate, forgive and LOVE the people in your life who deserve it.

#8 Making Excuses Rather Than Decisions

  • Most long-term failures are the result of people making excuses instead of decisions.

#9 Overlooking the Positive Points in Your Life

  • What you see often depends entirely on what you are looking for.

  • You will have a hard time ever being happy if you are not 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 the little things.
