I know you do not want to hear this but…
The only one stopping you from being successful is YOU!
Doesn’t it seem like all of the bad things you “thought” would happen … seem to happen? That even though you say you want to be happy you keep getting further and further away from it?
Luckily Marc had put together a list of the “30 things to stop doing to yourself” that should hopefully act as a wake-up call for you and you can begin to totally turn your life around TODAY!
I am rooting for you.
When you stop chasing the wrong things you givethe right things a chance to catch you.
1. Stop spending time with the wrong people. – Life is too short to spend time with people who suck the happiness out of you. If someone wants you in their life, they’ll make room for you. You shouldn’t have to fight for a spot. Never, ever insist yourself to someone who continuously overlooks your worth. And remember, it’s not the people that stand by your side when you’re at your best, but the ones who stand beside you when you’re at your worst that are your true friends.
This is one of my favorites and I am glad that this is number one! I am sure you have heard many of the similar phases like “you are what you eat” or “you become what you think about” or “you are who you hang out with”.
I test you to take a good look at the people you have in your life and ask yourself … do they add value to your everyday experiences or seem to drain the life out of it? For most people the answer to this is obvious.
You know who you are. You know you have a family member that makes you wish you were adopted. Yet, you find yourself in their company more often than not.
4. Stop putting your own needs on the back burner. – The most painful thing is losing yourself in the process of loving someone too much, and forgetting that you are special too. Yes, help others; but help yourself too. If there was ever a moment to follow your passion and do something that matters to you, that moment is now.
This is especially true for parents and married people. For some reason we have it in our head that we need to feel bad if we do ANYTHING for ourselves when we have a family. We have learned all the way back to grade school that being “selfish” is bad.
This really burns me up!
Let me ask you when was the last time you actually did something for yourself? Do you even still remember who you are? The problem with putting everybody else first is that you eventually lose who you are.
Remember when you get on an airplane and they tell you “In case of cabin pressure loss there will be masks that drop down from the sky. It is very important that you put your own mask on first before trying to help other put theirs on.”
How long can you go helping everyone else breathe before you eventually collapse?
