The world is filled with people who want to be successful and there are a million articles telling what you should start doing to achieve success.
While some of these are great, often times it’s what you need to stop doing that’s more important.
You Have To Give Up These 7 Things To Skyrocket Your Success
1. Give Up On Always Striving For Perfection
Perfection is the lowest standard, because perfect doesn’t exist.. in any area of life.
There is no perfect time to start a business, quit your job or take the trip of a lifetime.
You have to give up on perfection and start taking action now. Don’t let the fear of failure hold you back from success.
2. Give Up Hoping It Will Happen
If you want to achieve success in any area, you need to create a plan for it. You can’t just hope it will happen. You are the creator of your life and that means daily, weekly, and monthly plans.
When you are setting goals, make them mean something.. As Jack Canfield said, “Vague goals create vague results.” You have give up hope and replace it with belief.
Most people set short generalised goals like “lose 10 pounds” or “earn $100,000” but instead of thinking long-term. Think about exactly what you want to achieve, like losing 10 pounds and keeping 10 pounds off because you want to have more energy and get more out of each day. Think about how earning $100,000 would affect your life, your family and enable you to help others.
Once you’ve narrowed your goals. Write them down. Believe 100% you will achieve them. Repeat, every single day.
3. Give Up Playing Small
As Arnold Schwarzenegger said, “What’s the point of being on this Earth to coast through life and be like everyone else.” You need to give up playing small and start thinking big.
Big goals, big dreams, and stratospheric ambition that seems like insanity to most people. Sure, people will doubt and belittle your dreams, but who cares.
If you don’t take calculated risks on yourself, your dreams will die with you. They’ll never go from thought to reality. And the world won’t benefit either.
Get over trying to impress everyone and commit to achieving massive success.
4. Give Up Your Excuses
The number one habit in the bestseller, The Success Principles, is to take 100% accountability for your life. Every single aspect of it. You have to give up excuses if you want to find success.
Start holding yourself accountable for everything that happening in your life – good or bad. This might sting but it’s necessary to win big.
5. Give Up On The Unhealthy Lifestyle
What’s the point of working hard if you don’t have your health to enjoy it all? The fast-food diet might be more convenient but it’s going to catch up with you sooner or later.
Focus on your health, like you do your career or business. Not only will you look better, feel better and have more energy, you’ll have more mental cognition to achieve more as well.
6. Give Up Believing In Overnight Success
Overnight success doesn’t exist, it’s a myth. Overnight success comes from years, if not decades, of hard work and the relentless pursuit of a dream.
Successful people know this and don’t get distracted by shiny objects. They stay committed to their goals and ignore the “get rich quick schemes.” Strive for constant and neverending improvement to reach your goal, not winning the lottery.
7. Give Up on Negative and Toxic People
It’s not secret that your inner circle greatly affects your outer world. If you want success you have to be willing to give up the negative, toxic people that are dragging you down with them.
This can be very hard as some of the people you’ve known for a long-time. But don’t let a long friendship limit your long term potential. Look around and take note of those helping your success and those hindering your progress.
Remember, success doesn’t mean always adding something to your life. It means having the self-discipline to know there’s some things you have to give up.
Build successful habits, and surround yourself with winners. Give up these seven things and success will surely follow!!
