10 Things You Need To Drop From Your Life Starting NOW!
We are all doing things in our life that we should drop immediately in order to live a happier life and be the person we truly want to be.
We have around 70 years of life (on average). 20 of those years are spent learning about people, love, work, money, and living a life of mistakes in order to make the next 50 years enjoyable. The latter 10 years of our life are spent slowing down. So, we really only have around 40 years to really make a difference and truly create a life that we love.
Dropping these 10 things will help you live a much happier, and more enjoyable life…
1. Drop the negative people around you
We all have negative people around us, and it’s easy for me to say just drop them, but you have to find a way.
Negative people are energy suckers, they suck the life out of you until you get down to their way of thinking. I am sure you can think of a few people just now who are like this. If you’ve ever seen Harry Potter you’ll know what a Dementor is, that’s what negative people are, Dementors in your life.
It can be tough if you work closely with someone who is like this, or have family members who are like this. Drop them gradually or stay out of their way as much as possible.
Another thing you can do is counteract all their negatives with positives, oh! they don’t like that, and the more you do it the more they will avoid you.
2. Drop caring about the mistakes you have made
Bit of a cliche this one: your mistakes in life serve as a reminder of what not to do in the future, simple as that.
Your mind set about mistakes is what makes all the difference here, you can be in two camps on mistakes:
Camp one: woe is me, I made a mistake I am such a loser, I totally embarrassed myself, I’ll never be able to show my face in public again.
Camp two: I made a mistake, sure as hell won’t be doing that again, but at least I learned what not to do.
