8 Things to Give Up
There are certainly a lot more things that we should considering giving up, but these are what I believe some of the most important things to give up.
These 8 things to give up are important because they will not only help you in your network marketing business, but they will make you a better person all around.
I love this saying “Your Beliefs Don't Make You A Better Person, Your Behavior Does.” People look at what we do not what we say that why some of these 8 things to give up are so very important.
Things to Give Up
- Self Rejection
This is probably the worst thing we do to ourselves. Self sabotage, the art of sabotaging ourselves. We spend some much time with self talk that is do defeating and just not true. There's a great book out there by Shad Helmstetter “What To Say When You Talk To Yourself.“
- Negative Self-Talk
This is very much like number 1 and goes back to self talk. You need to be telling yourself all the things you can do and keep yourself away from all the negative influences that are out there.
- Criticising Others
This is just wrong and there is absolutely no value in criticising others. If you are caught up in the gossip trap or just have a habit of doing this, it's time to stop. When you understand that the only reason we criticise others is to attempt to build ourselves up you realize how fruitless this really is. Stop IT!
- Being a people pleaser
This is a hard one for me because we all like to be liked and wanted. The end result though is that you will end up doing things that are detrimental to you and those you are trying to please. Just be yourself, but be your best self. If we are constantly working on getting better for ourselves then the right people will be pleased and like us.
- Fear of Failure
Fear of anything can be debilitating to all of us. The best way to conquer our fear is to meet it head on. We all have heard what the meaning of FEAR is, “False Evidence Appearing Real.”
This has been one that I have struggled with over the years. Putting things off till the last minute or until it's too late all together. A high percentage of the time it's because of number 5 that fear again. I have found that those things that I just don't enjoy or fear, but know I have to do are best done FIRST!
- Holding onto Grudges
I just don't know what to say about this except that there just isn't any value to holding grudges. The only person it hurts is you and it will only get worse not better. It will start to fester and get worse and worse until it presents itself in all that you do. Forgive and Forget, move on and build a better you and better relationships.
- Expecting Perfection
So many of us get caught up in this saying what's wrong with expecting perfection. A Lot! First it very rarely happens in life except when it comes to God. Second the pressure that it puts on you and everyone around you is very defeating. Always strive to do your best in all that you do, just don't set yourself up for failure by expecting perfection when you won't be able to achieve it all the time.
I hope this has help you see that these 8 things to give up will get you on the road to becoming a better you. It will change you from being a person that talks about who they are to a person that people see who you are.
Striving to become a better you allows us to help more people in life and that's what it's all really about, isn't it. The more we give to others the more we get, so we can give more.
