1 of 8 Things to Give Up

I will share the complete graphic of this once we have completed the series so that you can have it for yourself but, for now, I'm only going to reveal them one at a time as they are discussed.

We are just a couple of month away from that time of the year when so many people declare their "New Year's Resolutions" which, as we all know, usually don't go much further than a month or so of effort.

A majority of these "resolutions" involve something that the particular person resolves to "give up" in order to get the results that they seek. Perhaps they give up certain foods in order to lose weight. Perhaps they give up drinking as much alcohol as they have been doing. Perhaps they decide to give up poor spending habits in order to reach some financial goals. The list could go on and on.

Why not get started EARLY with a list of things - 8 things - to give up that will, indeed, improve your life and your relationships?

I don't think these are in any particular order of importance, but, in the order of their appearance on this graphic of "8 Things to Give Up:"


On many of these eight entries, one thing we can do is to simply take a look at the "opposite" side/view. So, with this first listing, "BELIEVE IN YOURSELF!"

I've shared a graphic before that said something along the lines of: "If you are going to doubt anything, doubt your limits!" Turn it around and approach this from a POSITIVE view.

Many times this issue comes from a lifetime of a person being constantly bombarded with "doubt thoughts" by parents, classmates, other family members as well as possible other people in their life.

When this has been a part of someones life, it does become difficult to think any other way. It becomes difficult to think that, what you have been told all of your life, is NOT true.

Even though I said that this was not in any particular of importance, this may actually be THE most important thing that must be done in order to have any sort of change in your life. This may be the BIGGEST obstacle to overcome in order to move forward with a more positive attitude about yourself and those around you.

I hadn't planned to do this but, with these thoughts in mind, I want to share (once again) with you my "7 Daily Affirmations" that I put together several years ago. Click on it, save it, print it off or whatever you need to do so that you can SEE it and VOCALIZE it - yes, say it out loud! - for your own life.

Yes, this is "easier said than done". But, friend, think about this:
"ANY THING that requires ACTION and that involves CHANGE will ALWAYS be 'easier said than done'. But remember, change comes not by what has been SAID but by what has been DONE!"
Think about these things and incorporate the "7 Daily Affirmations" into your life and also be sure to join me for the next  part of the listing of things we all need to give up.
Until then, whatever you do, be sure to...
"Make it an AWESOME day! (Who else is going to do it for you?)"
