New Year, New you, New Goals

January 1, 2017

Happy New Year folks!

 

At this time off year we all look at our lives with a fresh perspective, a new approach. In between necking back shots and hugging everybidy in sight, my mind started ticking over:

 

Last Summer, somebody told me the definition of hell:

 

 

“On your last day on earth, the person you became will meet the person you could have become.” — Anonymous

 

Sometimes, to become successful and get closer to the person we can become, we don’t need to add more things — we need to give up on some of them.

 

There are certain things that are universal, which will make you successful if you give up on them, even though each one of us could have a different definition of success. For me Success doesn't mean earning a shit ton of money, it means being a better person, better lover, a better friend.

 

Here are some tips Stace style, that i have accumulated over my travels about let somethings go!

 

1. Give Up On The Unhealthy Lifestyle

 

“Take care of your body. It’s the only place you have to live.” — Jim Rohn

 

If you want to achieve anything in life, everything starts here. First you have to take care of your health, and there are only two things you need to keep in mind:

 

1. Healthy Diet
2. Physical Activity

 

Small steps, but you will thank yourself one day.

 

2. Give Up The Short-term Mindset

 

“You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.” — Mae West

 

Successful people set long-term goals, and they know these aims are merely the result of short-term habits that they need to do every day. These healthy habits shouldn’t be something you do; they should be something you embody. There is a difference between: “Working out to get a summer body” and “Working out because that’s who you are.”

 

3. Give Up On Playing Small

 

Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people will not feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone, and as we let our light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” - Marianne Williamson

 

If you never try and take great opportunities, or allow your dreams to become realities, you will never unleash your true potential. And the world will never benefit from what you could have achieved. So voice your ideas, don’t be afraid to fail, and certainly don’t be afraid to succeed.

 

4. Give Up Your Excuses

 

“It’s not about the cards you’re dealt, but how you play the hand.”Randy Pausch, The Last Lecture

 

Successful people know that they are responsible for their life, no matter their starting point, weaknesses, and past failures. Realising that you are responsible for what happens next in your life is both frightening and exciting. And when you do, that becomes the only way you can become successful, because excuses limit and prevent us from growing personally and professionally. Own your life; no one else will.

 

5. Give Up The Fixed Mindset

 

“The future belongs to those who learn more skills and combine them in creative ways.” Robert Greene, Mastery

 

People with a fixed mindset think their intelligence or talents are simply fixed traits, and that talent alone creates success — without effort. They’re wrong. Successful people know this. They invest an immense amount of time on a daily basis to develop a growth mindset, acquire new knowledge, learn new skills and change their perception so that it can benefit their lives.

Remember, who you are today, it’s not who you have to be tomorrow.

 

6. Give Up Believing In The “Magic Bullet.”

 

“Every day, in every way, I’m getting better and better” — Émile Coué

 

Overnight success is a myth. Successful people know that making small continual improvement every day will be compounded over time, and give them desirable results. That is why you should plan for the future, but focus on the day that’s ahead of you, and improve just 1% every day.

 

7. Give Up Your Perfectionism

 

“Shipping beats perfection.” — Kahn Academy’s Development Mantra

 

Nothing will ever be perfect, no matter how much we try. Fear of failure (or even fear of success) often prevents us from taking an action and putting our creation out there in the world. But a lot of opportunities will be lost if we wait for the things to be right. So “ship,” and then improve (that 1%).

 

8. Give Up Multi-tasking

 

“You will never reach your destination if you stop and throw stones at every dog that barks.” Winston S. Churchill

 

Successful people know this. That’s why they choose one thing and then beat it into submission. No matter what it is — a business idea, a conversation, or a workout.

Being fully present and committed to one task, is indispensable.

 

9. Give Up Your Need to Control Everything

 

“Some things are up to us, and some things are not up to us.” — Epictetus, Stoic philosopher

 

Differentiating these two is important. Detach from the things you cannot control, and focus on the ones you can, and know that sometimes, the only thing you will be able to control is your attitude towards something. Remember, nobody can be frustrated while saying “Bubbles” in an angry voice.

 

10. Give Up On Saying YES To Things That Don’t Support Your Goals

 

“He who would accomplish little must sacrifice little; he who would achieve much must sacrifice much; he who would attain highly must sacrifice greatly.” — James Allen

 

Successful people know that in order to accomplish their goals, they will have to say NO to certain tasks, activities, and demands from their friends, family, and colleagues.

In the short-term, you might sacrifice a bit of instant gratification, but when your goals come to fruition, it will all be worth it.

 

11. Give Up The Toxic People

 

“You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” Jim Rohn

 

People we spend the most time with, add up to who we become. Its pretty simple, When you are surround by negative people, your outlook comes down with them. If however you surround yourself with positive, happy people that want to explore and challenge themselves, so will you and your outlook will be much brighter. Take a look at around you, and see if you need to make any changes. 

 

 

 

12. Give Up Your Need To Be Liked

 

“The only way to avoid pissing people off is to do nothing important.” — Oliver Emberton

 

Think of yourself as a market niche. There will be a lot of people who like that niche, and there will be individuals who don’t. And no matter what you do, you won’t be able to make the entire market like you. This is entirely natural, and there’s no need to justify yourself.

The only thing you can do is to remain authentic, improve and provide value every day, and know that the growing number of “haters” means that you are doing important things.

 

13. Give Up Your Dependency on Social Media & Television

 

“The trouble is, you think you have time” — Jack Kornfield

 

This one is a biggie!!

 

Impulsive web browsing and television watching are diseases of today’s society.
These two should never be an escape from your life or your goals. Unless your goals depend on either, you should minimise (or even eliminate) your dependency on them, and direct that time towards things that can enrich your life like family and friends.
