Here’s a list of 6 things that would make your life much happier and easier if you let go of those things that hold you back. 

So many things we hold on to that cause us a great deal of pain, suffering, and stress, don’t hold onto those that don’t make you happy and be careful not to get caught into a cycle of bad habits.

Give up your need to Always be Right.

Many of us can’t stand to be wrong, but you know the old saying goes “The person who thinks knows it all, knows nothing in fact”.

This is just deep insecurity into our subconscious that we are not aware of and it reflects in that fact and the need of us to know it all. 

Wanting to always right no matter the consequences is a very bad habit to have and a very wrong view to look at life, you are putting at risk everything, your friends and family even your relationship, and you might be causing a great deal of pain and suffering for others. 

Its simply not worth it, next time you feel the sudden “ URGE “ to jump into a conversation to correct someone over who is right or wrong ask yourself this question: 

                      Would I rather be right, or would I rather be kind?”  ~Wayne Dyer

What difference will it make aside feeding your inner Ego

Give Up the Need for Control

By giving up control we are referring to not to be a control freak, not that you let other people control you. Give up the need to control people, your friends, co-workers and family members or even strangers you meet on the street. 

Just allow people to be themselves, don’t tell them what to do or how to do it, let the person be and admire how different he/she is from our self, this also allows us to reflect on our own life. 

Allow everyone and everything to be just how they are, let them feel comfortable around you and you will see how much better will that make you feel.

“By letting it go it all gets done. The world is won by those who let it go. But when you try and try. The world is beyond winning.” ~Lao Tzu

Give Up your self-defeating self-talk

Don’t fall into the cycle of talking yourself down into negative statements and self-defeating mind-set.

Don’t believe everything your mind tells you especially when it’s the negative side that predominates you at the moment, you are better than that. 

Force yourself into the positive again when you realize that you’re going down a spiral that there’s no return back to normal any time soon and just bring yourself back in the to the positive mind-set.

The mind is a superb instrument if used rightly. Used wrongly, however, it becomes very destructive.” ~Eckhart Tolle

Give Up Your Limiting Beliefs

Give up your limits of what you think you can or cannot do, what you think is possible and impossible, lose those boundaries. 

Think strongly that from now on you are no longer going to allow your limiting beliefs to keep you stuck in the wrong place, or a single place because you think there’s no escape from, there’s always a way out that you only need to find 1 time only. 

Spread your wings and fly, if you put your mind to it there’s always a little door that’s opening when you expect less, but you need to start focusing on it and express your desire.

        “A belief is not an idea held by the mind, it is an idea that holds the mind.” ~Elly Roselle

Give Up your Resistance to Change.

Always welcome change in your life, it will make it much easier and you will make yourself adaptable to anything, anywhere, anytime. 

Change is good and it will always help you, Change will help you move from A to B, will help you make improvements in your life and also the lives of those around you, you will be an example to others and something to look up to.

“Follow your bliss and the universe will open doors for you where there were only walls.” ~Joseph Campbel

Give Up on Your Fears

We are all afraid of something, fear of telling the truth, fear of hurting someone or fear of losing someone, there is many more examples of fear but you need to remember this:

Fear is just an illusion, it doesn’t exit. We create fear and we make it worse every time in our head. A coward dies 100 times in his head before his real Death.

Correct this inside and the outside will fall into place.

“The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.” ~Franklin D. Roosevelt
