No one can go back in time and make a new beginning, but anyone is able to start today and create a different ending.
For this purpose we have to stop doing things that keep us stuck in the past.
Here are some tips on what it is good to stop:
Stop spending time with the wrong people. – Life is too short to waste your time with people that worry you. If someone wishes you to become part of his life, will create the appropriate area for you. Never, do not try for someone who does not recognize your worth. And remember, there aren’t true friends those who are standing at your side when you’re at your best, but those who are near you when you have difficulties.
Stop withdrawn from your problems. – Treat decisively. It will not be easy. There is nobody in the world that can cope with distinction every difficulty. We are not made by nature so that we can directly solve problems. Rather, it is our nature to be irritated, regret, hurting. That is the purpose of life. To face the problems, to learn, to adapt, and to solve over time. Thus our personality is formed.
Stop telling lies to yourself. – You can tell lies to anyone else in the world, but not to yourself. Your life will improve if you are honest with yourself.
Stop putting your own needs second. – it is bad to neglect yourself because, due to excessive love, your focus and full attention is to someone else. Do not forget that you are very important. Help others, but help yourself too.
Stop trying to be someone you’re not. – One of the greatest challenges in life is to be yourself in a world that everyone directs us in certain directions. Someone will be more handsome, someone will be smarter, someone will be younger, but no one would be you. Do not change to appeal to others. Be yourself and the ‘right’ people will love what you really are.
Stop being stuck in the past. – You can not start the next chapter of your life, if you insist reading the previous chapters.
Stop being afraid that you might make a mistake. – To do something even if it turns out wrong, it is often more productive than to do nothing. Every success has traces failures behind it, and every failure leads to success. At the end you will regret a lot more things that you didn’t rather than things you did.
Stop trying to buy happiness. – Many of the things we want is expensive. But the truth is that things really satisfy us is completely free like love, the smile and feelings.
Stop looking exclusively happiness to others. – If you are not happy with yourself, you will not be long nor happy with someone else. You must first create happiness in your own life before you manage to share with someone else.
Stop thinking you’re not ready. – Nobody ever feels 100% ready when an opportunity is presented. Most major opportunities arise, forcing us to be out of our habits, meaning that you will never feel completely comfortable at the start of each challenge.
Stop maintaining relationships for wrong reasons. – Our relations should be chosen wisely. It is better to be alone than be with the wrong person. There is no reason to hurry. If something is meant to happen, it will happen at the right time with the right person, and for the best reason. Fall in love when you’re ready, rather than not to be alone.
Stop envying others. – Jealousy is the art of counting the positive things that someone else has, not you. Ask yourself: “What I have that everyone would like to have it?”
Stop holding grudges. – Do not live your life with hatred in the heart. You will end up hurting yourself more than people who hate. This does not mean to ignore what the other did to us but not allow it to negatively affect our lives. And remember, forgiveness does not apply only to others but also to yourself. When it is necessary, forgive yourself, go ahead and try to do better next time.
Stop allowing others to put you at their own lower level. – Refuse to drop your level to come those who refuse to rise their own.
Stop wasting your time justifying yourself to others. – Your friends do not need it and your enemies will not believe you so anyway.
Stop constantly push yourself without a break. – Time to take a deep breath is when you have no time for it.
Stop disinterested beauty of small moments. – Enjoy the little things, because one day you look back and discover that it was important. The best part of your life will be what is composed of small moments like when you go well with someone who matters to you.
Stop trying to make things perfect. – In life does not reward perfectionists, but those who succeed their purpose.
Stop pretenting that everything is fine when it is not. – It’s OK feeling psycologically bad for a while. You do not always have to pretend that you are strong, and constantly prove that everything is fine. It is healthy to weep sometime. The sooner you do, the sooner you will be able to smile again.
Stop blaming others for your problems. – Whether you will achieve your dreams depends on the degree in which you take the responsibility for your life. When you blame others for what you’re going through, means that you deny any responsibility, and allow others to define your life.
Stop trying to be everything to everyone. – This is impossible, and if you try to achieve it will burn you. Limit yourself to those who consider as important.
Stop worrying so much. – One way to check if something worth worrying you, is to ask yourself: “Will this issue be important in one year? In three years? In five years? “If the answer is no, then it doesn’t worth worrying.
Stop focusing on what you do not want to happen. – Focus on what you want to happen. Positive thinking is a prerequisite for any great success.
Stop choosing the easy way out. – Life is not easy, especially when you want to accomplish something worthwhile. Do not always choose the easy way. Choose to do something extraordinary, even if it seems difficult initially.
Stop being ungrateful. – Wake up every day grateful for your life. Instead of thinking about what you have not, try to think what you have that others haven’t it.
