Most folks think that by gathering more stuff, they‘ll finally find happiness – the best things in life are not things!
Here are 4 things that you can let go of that will make you a happier. More peaceful person – immediately!
Let go of the need to impress others
If you’re a human being, chances are you care about what other people think of you – we’re social creatures, after all
» Spending too much time, money, & enerhy trying to impress others & get approval, you’re not being true to YOU
» There’s no need to try and be something you’re not, because who you are right now is FABULOUS!
» Focus instead on living the most authentic version of YOU
» When you fully embrace who you are and share it with others, you’ll find that people will appreciate how REAL you are and will flock to you effortlessly
Let go of the desire to gossip
Gossip is just a cheap way to make yourself feel good.
» We all know that gossiping about other people is… well, not so good
» But when the people around you are doing it, it can be easy to slip into doing it, too!
» The quality of your life depends greatly on the quality of the conversations you have
» I f you want to live a more fulfilling life, start by embracing the power of your word. Your voice is powerful! And what you have to say makes a difference
» Be committed to having more positive conversations about things that matter… not people… and you’ll be surprised how quickly you’ll brighten your outlook on life
Let go of the need to be right
Sometimes when we feel we’ve been mistreated or misunderstood by someone, we can get caught up into wanting that person to admit they’ve wronged us.
» And we want an apology!
» Or at least acknowledgment that we are right and they’re wrong:)
» But not all people see things from the same perspective. In your world, you’re right… in theirs, so are they
» There are definitely times where an apology is necessary, but – most other times, it may be best to ask yourself this: “Do I want to be right? Or do I want to be happy?”
Let go of the past
It’s easy to dwell on the past, especially when the future is so unknown!
» Looking to the past can feel safe… we know what has happened and we know what we could do to change things… if only we had the chance
» The truth is, you never will have the chance to change the past – Not unless scientists invent a time machine. ;)Your past has served its purpose – it’s brought you to the place you are today and made you the person you are now. And who you are right now is absolutely perfect
» Be grateful for your experiences, but know that NOW is all you have. So do your best to enjoy each moment. Give yourself the gift of being present! To your everlasting happiness.
