10 Habits You Must Quit to Be Happy

PMA Added:

"Anytime you blame others and complain about your situation, you are choosing to be a victim. By playing the victim role you are putting yourself in an ineffective and weak position. It is virtually impossible to allow incredible miracles to enter your life when you choose to remain in this negative mental state." Sonia Ricotti Author and Speaker

10 Habits You Must Quit to Be Happy

When you quit doing the wrong things, you make more room for the things that make you happy.  So starting today…

1.  Quit procrastinating on your goals.

Some people dream of success while others wake up and work hard at it.  Action and change are often resisted when they’re needed most.  Get a hold of yourself and have discipline.  Putting something off instantly makes it harder and scarier.  What we don’t start today won’t be finished by tomorrow.  And there’s nothing more stressful than the perpetual lingering of an unfinished task.

The secret to getting ahead is simply getting started.  Starting, all by itself, is usually sufficient to build enough momentum to keep the ball rolling.  So forget about the finish line and just concentrate on taking your first step.  Say to yourself, “I choose to start this task with a small, imperfect step.”  All those small steps will add up and you’ll actually get to see changes fairly quickly.  Read Getting Things Done.

2.  Quit blaming others and making excuses.

Stop blaming others for what you have or don’t have, or for what you feel or don’t feel.  When you blame others for what you’re going through, you deny responsibility and perpetuate the problem.  Stop giving your power away and start taking responsibility for your life.  Blaming is just another sorry excuse, and making excuses is the first step towards failure; you and only you are responsible for your life choices and decisions.

3.  Quit trying to avoid change.

If nothing ever changed there would be no sunrise the next morning.  Most of us are comfortable where we are even though the whole universe is constantly changing around us.  Learning to accept this is vital to our happiness and general success.  Because only when we change, do we grow, and begin to see a world we never knew was possible.

And don’t forget, however good or bad a situation is now, it will change.  That’s the one thing you can count on.  So embrace it, and realize that change happens for a reason.  It won’t always be easy or obvious at first, but in the end it will be worth it.

4.  Quit trying to control the uncontrollable.

If you try to control everything, and then worry about the things you can’t control, you are setting yourself up for a lifetime of frustration and misery.

Some forces are out of your control, but you can control how you react to things.  Everyone’s life has positive and negative aspects – whether you’re happy or not depends greatly on which aspects you focus on.  The best thing you can do is to let go of what you can’t control, and invest your energy in the things you can – like your attitude.

5.  Quit talking down to yourself.

Nothing will bring you down quicker than berating yourself.  The mind is a superb instrument if used right, but when used incorrectly, it becomes very destructive.  Be aware of your mental self-talk.  We all talk silently to ourselves in our heads, but we aren’t always conscious of what we’re saying or how it’s affecting us.

As Henry Ford once stated, “Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t, you’re right.”  One of the major causes of why we fail is due to self-doubt and negative self-talk.  The way to overcome negative thoughts and destructive emotions is to develop opposing, positive emotions that are stronger and more powerful.  Listen to your self-talk and replace negative thoughts with positive ones, over time you will change the trajectory of your life.  Read The How of Happiness.

6.  Quit criticizing others.

The negativity you bleed out toward others will gradually cripple your own happiness.  When you truly feel comfortable with your own imperfections, you won’t feel threatened or offended by the imperfections you see in other people.

So stop worrying about the flaws you see in everyone else, and focus on yourself.  Let the constant growth and improvement in your own life keep you so busy that you have no time left to criticize others.

7.  Quit running from your problems and fears.

Trust me, if everyone threw their problems in a pile for you to see, you would grab yours back.  Tackle your problems and fears swiftly, don’t run away from them.  The best solution is to face them head on no matter how powerful they may seem.

Fears, in particularly, stop you from taking chances and making decisions.  They keep you confined to just the small space where you feel completely comfortable.  But your life’s story is simply the culmination of many small, unique experiences, many of which require you to stretch your comfort zone.  Letting your fears and worries control you is not ‘living,’ it’s merely existing.

Bottom line:  Either you own your problems and fears, or they will ultimately own you.

8.  Quit living in another time and place.

Some people spend their entire lives trying to live in another time and place.  They lament about what has been, what they could have done, or what might become.  However, the past is gone, and the future doesn’t exist.  No matter how much time we spend thinking and lamenting about either, it doesn’t change anything.

One of life’s sharpest paradoxes is that our brightest future hinges on our ability to pay attention to what we’re doing right now, today.

We need to live more in the moment.  Living in the moment requires active, open, intentional awareness on the present.  Don’t fantasize about being on vacation while at work, and don’t worry about the work piling up on your desk when you’re on vacation.  Live for now.  Notice the beauty unfolding around you.

9.  Quit trying to be someone you’re not.

One of the greatest challenges in life is being yourself in a world that’s trying to make you like everyone else.  Someone will always be prettier, someone will always be smarter, someone will always be younger, but they will never be you.  Don’t change so people will like you.  Be yourself and the right people will love you, and you’ll love yourself more too.  The Road Less Traveled.

10.  Quit being ungrateful.

Not all the puzzle pieces of life will seem to fit together at first, but in time you’ll realize they do, perfectly.  So thank the things that didn’t work out, because they just made room for the things that will.  And thank the ones who walked away from you, because they just made room for the ones who won’t.

No matter how good or bad you have it, wake up each day thankful for your life.  Someone somewhere else is desperately fighting for theirs.  Instead of thinking about what you’re missing, try thinking about what you have that everyone else is missing.

What is the Purpose of your business

There is a Secret to Getting What You Want.

Asking the right questions can help you get back on the right trackLet’s start by asking you to answer a question. Without intellectualizing it or thinking what you think might be a clever answer, please say out loud the very FIRST thing that comes to your mind…
What’s the Purpose of your business…? Or any business in the world?
Perhaps your answer might be something like, “Make money” or “To make a profit” or “To be fulfilled”.  Or, perhaps your answer was, “To help others” or “To help people  solve their problems.”

Two different answers and two different vibrations or energy.  If your answer was similar to the first one, such as making money, ask yourself this, where is the focus? On you, or the other person? It’s on you and what you want, isn’t it? This is your Personal Agenda or Personal Objective.

Whether you think you can or can’t, either way you are right.” – Henry Ford

The second set?  Your focus is on them! To help them get what they want. This is what is called as coming from a place of Purpose. Two different ways of thinking and two different ways of taking action on that thinking.
PURPOSE AND PERSONAL AGENDA

You want to become aware of your thoughts, you want to choose your thoughts carefully and you want to have fun with this, because you are the masterpiece of your own life.” – Joe Vitale

The reason I ask the question “What is the Purpose of a business?” is to mentally prepare you the Natural Selling Training, because your answer reveals something that is vitally important… your words give you away!!   What do I mean by this?  Well, have you ever thought that your thoughts and words are energy that people directly or indirectly feel? Have you ever thought people consciously and subconsciously feel and know your real intent? That they know whether you are focused on your Personal Agenda, which is about you and what you want, or on your Purpose, which is about helping them get what they want?

Let a person radically alter his thoughts, and he will be astonished at the rapid transformation it will effect in the material conditions of his life. ” Napoleon Hill

To paraphrase an ancient saying…
What come out of your mouth is determined by what goes into your mind“Your words are an extension of your thoughts Your actions are an extension of your words And your habits are an extension of your actions”  What you receive in life, and the way people respond to you, is based on your words, your actions and your habits. And it all starts where? With a thought! Everything starts with a thought. That’s why thoughts are so powerful. That’s why choosing how you think and act will determine how life and people respond to you So back to the original question about the purpose of your business! The questions you have to ask yourself then, is, are you really in business for you, (Personal Agenda) or are you in it for other people (Purpose)? The truth is in the following question;

If your solution cannot solve someone’s problem, is there any reason for them to do business with you? No, there isn’t! So the real purpose of a business then is not about you and what you want, it’s to help other people solve their problems, or get what they want, need or desire. And that is what is behind the first principle of the Natural Selling Approach…

PRINCIPLE 1. NATURAL SELLING IS HELPING OTHER PEOPLE SOLVE THEIR
PROBLEMS.

Believe in yourself and your abilities. That is the only way to attract wonderful things into your life. Don’t waste your time thinking that you cannot do something. Dr. Steve & Frank

To take this further… Another ancient saying says, “When you seek to serve, you ultimately serve yourself!” It’s just a matter of knowing how to do it! And that is precisely what the Natural Selling approach will do for you. It will allow you to effortlessly and easily approach and help others get what they want and ultimately allow you to get what you want without any anxiety in the process of doing so. Now, if you know how to help people solve their problems, and you
can do it with your own solutions, you will achieve what? Your Personal Agenda, which is your own reason for being in business isn’t it?

SELLING AS A PROBLEM SOLVING EXERCISE
Success mean...  Zig ZiglarIf the purpose of a business is to help other people solve their problems, you could say that selling is merely a Problem Solving Exercise. Contrary to the conventional approach, it’s not a telling or persuading exercise. It’s all to do with problem solving.   Become a problem solver – look for them. Because with problems comes what? Opportunities! Opportunities for you is to help others get what they want and to be rewarded for it.  Tomorrow we will look closely at how you practically and effortlessly do this by using a powerful approach of communicating called Dialogue. until the next Lesson!
EXERCISES
1. Reflect on how by serving others, you can achieve what it is that you want.
2. Two quotes to think about:
“You can get anything you want if you help enough people get what
they want” – Zig Ziglar
“Help me, Rod, help me to help you!” – Jerry Maguire in the movie
“Jerry Maguire”.

“Let a person radically alter his thoughts, and he will be astonished at the rapid transformation it will effect in the material conditions of his life. ” Napoleon Hill

Success is achieved by developing our strengths, not by eliminating our weaknesses". – Marilyn vos Savant

"Change is inevitable, growth is intentional." – Glenda Cloud

 

Use Your Pain to Get the Life You Want

LaTersa BlakelyIf I could share 500 words to inspire, this is the important wisdom I’d want to pass along to others…

Allow your pain to become your message!

We all have a past and there is nothing you can do about it. You can’t turn back the hands of time. What you can do is take the lessons that you’ve learned and pass them on to someone else.

Your past does not dictate your future. Allow what happened to you in the past to make you a better person. Instead of looking back in your past with regrets, think of what you gained and be willing to use them to make your life better.

Your life is a learning process – you can only become wiser from learning. Sometimes you might have to attract making a painful mistake to learn something important, but after the mistake you have far greater wisdom. Wisdom cannot be bought with money – it can only be acquired through living life. With wisdom comes: strength, courage, knowing, and an ever-increasing peace. May the joy be with you, Rhonda Byrne

Remember that you will not receive a testimony without going through a test. In life there will always be trials and tribulations but it should allow you to reach a higher level in your life.

Everybody has a past or something terrible that has happened to them, but  in every situation, you can allow it to break you or make you a better person. Sometimes, it may cause you to make a few detours in life, but your destiny is never tied to your past. You have to just go through it. It will not be an easy one, but I promise you, the journey will be well worth it.

From The Secret Daily Teachings….The process of creation is the same for all things, whether you want to bring something to you or remove something negative from your life.

If you have a habit you wish to break, or anything negative you wish to remove from your life, you must focus on what you want. That means you visualize and imagine yourself in that negative-free state right now. Imagine yourself in as many scenes as you possibly can where the negative situation is completely absent. Imagine yourself happy and free. Eliminate any picture from your mind of you with the negative situation. Just imagine yourself in the state you want to be in, and feel that you are that, right now.

May the joy be with you,  Rhonda Byrne

I know some of you right now are wanting to start your own business, go back to school, or do something extra-ordinary with your life, but you don’t do it because you fear that people will find out about your past. So, instead of you letting go of your pain or your past, you stay stuck at a dead end job because you lack the courage to do what’s really in your heart.

At the core of your attraction is your wellbeingWhat you can do is look your pain or past dead in the face and let it know that you are not afraid of it and acknowledge it for what it is. You will allow yourself to be free to move forward. Holding onto the past will only paralyze you and keep you stuck in the past. You will not be able to write a new chapter in your life until you let go of the old one.

What I have learned that doesn’t matter is that you can’t be consumed with what “they” say and worry about how others view you. At the end of the day, you have to be happy with you and the decisions you make, not the next person. So many people get stuck because they put most of their focus, time and energy on what others think about them instead of being true to themselves.

Happiness is here step inside the circleWhat many fail to realize is that it is usually not about you, so don’t take it personal. Allow your pain to become your message and share it with the world so that others can have hope and know that they too can live beyond their past and step into their greatness.
