I found this post, loved it and decided to share it. I really do hope you enjoy it. For those looking for happiness, here’s a quick way to go about it…all you need do is to give up on this ten things.
1. Give up your need to always be right. There
are so many of us who can’t stand the idea of being wrong – wanting to
always be right – even at the risk of ending great relationships or
causing a great deal of stress and pain, for us and for others. It’s
just not worth it. Whenever you feel the ‘urgent’ need to jump into a
fight over who is right and who is wrong, ask yourself this question: “Would I rather be right, or would I rather be kind?”Wayne Dyer.
2. Give up on blame/complaining. Give
up on your need to blame others for what you have or don’t have, for
what you feel or don’t feel. Stop giving your powers away and start
taking responsibility for your life. Give
up your constant need to complain about those many, many, maaany things
– people, situations, events that make you unhappy, sad and depressed.
Nobody can make you unhappy, no situation can make you sad or miserable
unless you allow it to.
3. Give up your limiting beliefs about
what you can or cannot do, about what is possible or impossible. From
now on, you are no longer going to allow your limiting beliefs to keep
you stuck in the wrong place. Spread your wings and fly!
“A belief is not an idea held by the mind, it is an idea that holds the mind” Elly Roselle
4. Give up your need to impress others. Stop
trying so hard to be something that you’re not just to make others like
you. It doesn’t work this way. The moment you stop trying so hard to be
something that you’re not, the moment you take of all your masks, the
moment you accept and embrace the real you, you will find people will be
drawn to you, effortlessly.
5. Give up your resistance to change. Change
is good. Change will help you move from A to B. Change will help you
make improvements in your life and also the lives of those around you.
Follow your bliss, embrace change – don’t resist it.
6. Give up labels. Stop
labeling those things, people or events that you don’t understand as
being weird or different and try opening your mind, little by little.
Minds only work when open. “The highest form of ignorance is when you reject something you don’t know anything about.” Wayne Dyer
7. Give up on your fears. Fear
is just an illusion, it doesn’t exist – you created it. It’s all in
your mind. Correct the inside and the outside will fall into place.
“The only thing we have to fear, is fear itself.” Franklin D. Roosevelt
8. Give up your excuses. Send
them packing and tell them they’re fired. You no longer need them. A
lot of times we limit ourselves because of the many excuses we use.
Instead of growing and working on improving ourselves and our lives, we
get stuck, lying to ourselves, using all kind of excuses – excuses that
99.9% of the time are not even real.
9. Give up the past. I
know, I know. It’s hard. Especially when the past looks so much better
than the present and the future looks so frightening, but you have to
take into consideration the fact that the present moment is all you have
and all you will ever have. The past you are now longing for – the past
that you are now dreaming about – was ignored by you when it was
present. Stop deluding yourself. Be present in everything you do and
enjoy life. After all life is a journey not a destination. Have a clear
vision for the future, prepare yourself, but always be present in the
10. Give up attachment. This
is a concept that, for most of us is so hard to grasp and I have to
tell you that it was for me too, (it still is) but it’s not something
impossible. You get better and better at with time and practice. The
moment you detach yourself from all things, (and that doesn’t mean you
give up your love for them – because love and attachment have nothing to
do with one another, attachment comes from a place of fear, while
love… well, real love is pure, kind, and self less, where there is love
there can’t be fear, and because of that, attachment and love cannot
coexist) you become so peaceful, so tolerant, so kind, and so serene.
You will get to a place where you will be able to understand all things
without even trying. A state beyond words.
