1. Negative people.
I think it’s important to keep people in your life who hold your feet to the fire and want to see you achieve your dreams and be the best person you can be. There’s a solid difference between those kinds of people and negative people. Negative people think you’ll fail because they don’t trust you. Negative people don’t even really want you to succeed.
2. Caring about your mistakes.
Learning from your mistakes is crucial for growing and preventing those mistakes in the future, but don’t get hung up on it.
3. Worrying about the past.
Similar to caring about your mistakes, don’t sweat the past. It happened. You can’t go back in time.
4. Your self image.
I used to have real self image problems, but I didn’t fix it by forcing a more positive image on myself. I just stopped having a self image. It’s been incredible. I just don’t care anymore. Leads to some interesting outfits, sure, but life is way more relaxed.
5. Feeling sorry.
If you find yourself apologizing over things you shouldn’t be apologizing for, just knock it off. You’re brainwashing yourself into believing a false reality where you’re always at fault. You aren’t. Quit with the sorry.
6. Saying yes.
If you don’t want to. Don’t be weak in the face of the hard ask. Just say no if you don’t want to.
7. Trying to impress everyone.
You’re probably just fine how you are. No need to dress to impress.
8. Saying what people want to hear.
Hey, be honest. If you have something to say, say it. There’s no need to sugar coat your thoughts and feelings. Be out there, out loud, and real with people. They’ll respect you for it.
9. Your limiting beliefs.
One thing that tends to derail me is the belief that now isn’t the right time. Now is now, and the best time to start anything you want to do is at this moment. Don’t let core beliefs slow you down. They’re here to lift you up, not hold you down.
10. Worrying about the future.
The future is coming one way or the other. Be ready for it, but don’t spend your time in worry about it. It won’t do you any good at all.
