I have been on this planet for a little over 50 years. And I don’t give up much.
It wasn’t till the last 3 years that I have realized and really taken to heart what life is all about.
And it wasn’t till the last 3 months that I have really taken notice of what I really need to do to make life more enlightened.
Now I hope that other people will follow the lead I have realized and not wait till they are 50 to take the following words in heed.
Believe me, it’s worth it. I know I am done on my journey(it never ends) but I feel better every day.
- Give up blame
It is not going to do you any good to blame people for whatever. Just whatever it is, fix it because if whatever is happening to you, as it is your problem and your responsibility to fix. Be in charge of your life.
- Give up limiting beliefs
It has been said that “A belief is not an idea held by the mind, it is an idea that holds the mind”. In other words, a belief can hold you back. Start working on what is holding you back in life. Nothing holding you back? You are happy with what you have right now? Then I am happy for you. But I will say look real hard at yourself to make sure you believe that.
- You don’t have to be always be right
Most times, humans would rather be right instead of being correct. But you lose your chance of learning if you can’t be open-minded enough to new possibilities. Always wanting to be right also creates stress. It’s just not worth it to try to be right all the time. Give your ego a rest!!
- Give up complaining and criticising
To be doing either one or both of these things means you are in the wrong frame of mind and totally counterproductive for your best well being. Try looking at things in a different more positive perspective and point of view. Practice that and your life will become more pleasant, I promise. Why? Because you will stop looking for things to complain and criticize!! It works!!
- Give up resisting and needing constant control
This Universe is constantly changing and evolving. It has to. And for you to think that you know more than THE UNIVERSE and what is best for you is absolutely ludicrous! Think about that. Just relax and let things happen. Don’t resist change. Change is a good thing and should not be feared.
- Delete the self-defeating self talk
I am sure this may be tough but this may help to start you on the right path: YOU ARE NOT YOUR THOUGHTS!! The mind is a very powerful thing and can be either a superb tool or a destructive tool. It’s your choice. Start your training today. To start with the awareness of yourself and your thoughts is key.
- Give up attachment
Where does attachment come from? Fear. You should embrace whatever you fear and accept to truly be free of it. In actuality, fear takes us back to the resisting and control point from two points ago!! Not letting go of attachments is resisting and trying to control what is not controllable and that will get you nowhere.
- Live your life.
In other words, figure out what you want to do and do it. Don’t live to other’s expectations. Sure you can appease them to a point, but to only follow their lead is not doing yourself any justice or good. Follow your path. You deserve it!!
All these things have lead to heartache and stress and pain in my years. But letting these points sink in and really noticing when I do these negative things has created a difference in my life.
One of the ‘hacks’ I have been using is Holosync because it helps you to let go of limiting beliefs much quicker than meditation alone and I will condone the use of that all day long!!
So maybe one person will have a light bulb go off above their head and start moving towards realizing what this list can do for them.
To me, that is a good start.
This is your universe and you should live it in the best way possible.
Can you help move this list along? Can you add to this list? Can you see at least one point on this list you need to work on? Please share and comment below. Would love to hear your thoughts!!
