A Mindset Shift
A lot of the allure of success is about getting. Getting money, getting a sexy car, getting a luxury house, getting a wardrobe full of brand name clothes. But success is actually more about the opposite of that, success is about GIVING.
In that context, I mean giving in the sense of sharing your skills, talent and time with other people, but there is another type of giving that is also essential for success – GIVING –UP.
Eliminating Things That Don`t Move You To Your Goals
You might be thinking : “Giving Up? I thought to be successful you should “never give up”. You should actually give up, but it`s what you give up that will have a positive or negative effect on your success. In this post what I am talking about is giving up anything that is not going to take you forward towards the goals you have for yourself. In fact, I think the amount of potential you have for success can be estimated by the number of things you are willing to give up. See below.
How Badly Do You Want It?
Here`s a list of things you may have to give up to achieve your goals and be successful:
- Partying /Socializing
- Unnecessary spending on luxury items like clothes, makeup, jewelry
- Restaurant Dinners
- Old/limiting beliefs
- Video Games
- Family Members
- Junk Food
(And there are more things I could add to the list) How many of the things on this list would you be willing to give up in pursuit of a better life? Is there anything you want enough that would make you give those things up?
The more items you are willing to scratch off the list, the more potential you have to accomplish the goals that are important to you and achieve success.
