No one likes a quitter, right? That’s what we’ve been told all our lives. Don’t quit. What if quitting was the best thing that you could do right now? On todays podcast we talk about the 10 bad habits that you actually NEED to quit if you want to thrive in the life and in business. Which of these are you guilty of? Find out how these bad habits that you need to say good-bye to are stopping you from success and making life a lot harder than it could be!
In today’s episode we’re wrapping up our discussion of the 10 habits that you absolutely, positively, must QUIT in order to be happy, picking up on point #5 where we left off yesterday:
5. Quit talking down to yourself.
Nothing will bring you down quicker than berating yourself. As Henry Ford once stated, “Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t, you’re right.” One of the major causes of why we fail is due to self-doubt and negative self-talk.
6. Quit criticizing others.
The negativity you spew out toward others will gradually cripple your own happiness. Stop worrying about the flaws you see in everyone else, and focus on yourself. Let the constant growth and improvement in your own life keep you so busy that you have no time left to criticize others. Stick to the powerful goals you set in your Real Estate Treasure Map!
7. Quit running from your problems and fears.
Fears stop you from taking chances and making decisions. They keep you confined to just the small space where you feel completely comfortable. But your life’s story is simply the culmination of many small, unique experiences, many of which require you to stretch your comfort zone. Letting your fears and worries control you is not ‘living,’ it’s merely existing. Either you own your problems and fears, or they will ultimately own you.
8. Quit living in another time and place.
Some people spend their entire lives trying to live in another time and place. They lament about what has been, what they could have done, or what might become. However, the past is gone, and the future doesn’t exist yet. No matter how much time we spend thinking and lamenting about either, it doesn’t change anything. Live more in the moment. Live for now. Know how to ‘change the channel’.
9. Quit trying to be someone you’re not.
One of the greatest challenges in life is being yourself in a world that’s trying to make you like everyone else. Someone will always be prettier, someone will always be smarter, someone will always be younger, but they will never be you. Don’t change so people will like you. Be yourself and the right people will love you, and you’ll love yourself more too. The Road Less TraveledDescription: http://www.assoc-amazon.com/e/ir?t=marandang-20&l=as2&o=1&a=0743243153.
10. Quit being ungrateful.
Thank the things that didn’t work out, because they just made room for the things that will. And thank the ones who walked away from you, because they just made room for the ones who won’t. Remember, ‘It’s too soon to tell!’
