With every month comes opportunities, as well as challenges; that’s what life is and that’s what it brings to you – and it’s only those who are willing to take those opportunities when it arises and those who can grab the challenges by its horn will go on to be successful.
These are those things you should be willing to give up if you want your month to be successful:
1. Unhealthy habits
Choose to cut off every form of unhealthy habit like smoking and taking too much alcohol, use of hard drugs, unhealthy eating habits, poor sleeping pattern and lack of physical activity.
A quote by Jim Rohn: “Take care of your body. It’s the only place you have to live in.”
Choose to quit every form of ingratitude and complaining this month. Learn to be more grateful and appreciate things. Appreciate life, because there’s always hope when there’s life, appreciate family, appreciate friends and appreciate love.
3. Negative thinking
Stop every form of negative thinking; it’ll only bring about a negative energy that will kill your desire and momentum to achieve any tangible thing this month.
Shun every form of negative thinking and try to be more positive about life this month.
Choose to be focused and cut off any form of distractions. Anything taking you away from your goal should be cut off from your life.
Laziness and success don’t mix; gear yourself up to work hard, not sometimes but always. Let laziness be far from you, and you’ll see just how much progress you will make this month.
Learn to do today that which you ought to do today. Make a decision to quit from every form of procrastination. Procrastination is a success killer.
7. Giving up
Choose not to give up this month, no matter what life throws at you. It’s already over and you have nothing to gain when you give up.
Always make that decision to see failure as a stepping stone to success; failure only means – try again.
8. Not giving your best
If it’s not your best shot then it’s not good enough. Choose to do your best in everything you find yourself; if it’s not your best, then it’s not good enough.
Give up excuses and take the bull by the horn. Stop making excuses for your failures and start taking responsibilities for your actions.
10. Stop trying to control that which you cannot
According to Epictetus, “Some things are up to us and some things are not up to us.”
Stop trying to control that which you cannot, stop living in worries when you can be happy, stop living in fear when you can be bold.
Put a hold on these ten things this month, and there’ll be no limit to how far you can go.
