If you want to know what are some things you should give up to be happy, you’ll love this article. If you ask my friends, they will tell you how much I hate to feel like I am stuck in one place. Whether it’s a job, in a mindset, or in my family life, I hate getting stuck in a rut. Things may be going fine, but if I’m not moving forward I feel like I’m sinking in quicksand, and I try to find the nearest escape. For a restless soul like mine, it’s a bad feeling to be stagnant in the same place for too long.
I used to think I had a gypsy soul, and that I was meant to roam the world forever. Although that still sounds like music to my ears, I gladly settled down and planted some roots when I had my son. Even though I won’t be moving any time soon, I still feel the need to keep on moving along in other aspects of my life. My wise mother has reassured me that it’s a good thing to be looking to the future with hope and goals instead of settling for mediocrity.
The first place to look is at your job. Are you happy there? Is there room to grow, or advancements to be made? If you find yourself losing a piece of your soul every day at your place of work, do something about it! Talk to your boss; let them know how you are feeling and chances are they will try to solve the problem with you. They will know if there are any openings in different positions that would interest you, and they can give you an idea on where you are headed (if anywhere) within the company.
Sometimes the best thing you can do to move forward is to literally move. Pick up and move across the country, or just 30 minutes down the road. Hire movers, or pack your whole life into the backseat of your car, the choice is yours. The point is, you are not a tree – you are not stuck where you are unhappy. There will always be another job, another place to live, and new friends to be made in a new place. You never know what could come from it, so why hesitate? Take the risks while you still can, and it can absolutely change your life for the better.
Sometimes I find that the only “rut” in my life exists in my own head. It’s easy to let negativity sink in and misconstrue the way you look at things. Something that would normally roll off your back could turn your whole week upside down if you have the wrong mentality. I have found that committing to personal development everyday makes a huge difference. Whether it’s listening to a positive podcast, reading an inspirational book, or simply talking to your best friend for a little bit every day, these things can make a big difference. Keeping the right mentality is so important, and it will keep you motivated in other areas of your life.
If you are feeling stuck and unsatisfied with your life, do something about it! Move, partake in some personal development, or re-evaluate your career to try and get out of any rut you may be in. I believe the best thing you can do for yourself in life is to keep on keeping on. Keep moving forward, and keep bettering yourself. This looks different for everyone, so only you know how that applies to your life. At the end of the day, you are the only one who is responsible for your own happiness, and it is up to you to find it.
Things You Should Give Up To Be Happy
We hold on so many toxic Ideas about what it means to be abundant, wealthy and have a lot of money – and instead of letting them go, instead of allowing ourselves to be happy and enjoy the many blessings that abundance brings – we cling on them. Not anymore. Starting today we will give up on all those things that no longer serve us, and we will embrace change.
1. Give up your scarcity mentality
This world has enough for everyone, but you have to believe this to be true. Change your mindset, change your life. Give up your scarcity mentality (1) and you will live abundant.
2. Give up your lack of self-worth
Give up this need to see yourself as small, unworthy and insignificant. You are a living, breathing miracle. You came out of nothingness and into this world. And you deserve to enjoy all the amazing gifts that life has to offer just as everyone else does. Give up your lack of self-worth and allow yourself to be abundant.
3. Give up blame
Give up the need to blame your parents, spouse, government, God and the whole world for your dysfunctional relationship with money. You are not a victim, so stop acting as one. Take responsibility for your own life and stop giving your power away.
4. Give up your resistance towards abundance
There is nothing wrong with living abundant. Nothing wrong with allowing life to shower you with its many gifts and blessings. So stop resisting and start embracing.
5. Give up old programming
It literally doesn’t matter where you’ve been in the past and how little, you, your family, or your ancestors had many, maaaany years ago. That’s just a memory, not your reality. And you should treat it as such. Times have changed, and so should you.
6. Give up your doubts and fears
About you not being worthy and deserving of wealth and abundance and about money being the root of all evil. Evil comes from what people do with money, and not from money itself. Always remember that.
7. Give up self-sabotage
Stop trying to move forward with your breaks on. Lift your foot off the self-sabotage (2) and place it on the abundance pedal instead.
8. Give up the toxic beliefs that life has to be a struggle
Life isn’t meant to be a struggle, but you make it so by believing that it should be. Give up this toxic belief and you’ll see things changing for the better.
9. Give up the insane belief that abundance and spirituality don’t go together
Saying that spirituality and abundance don’t go together is like saying the exhaling and inhaling don’t go together. You can’t have one without the other. In fact, you need to inhale first in order to exhale. The same with abundance. You need to allow yourself to receive in order for you to give.
10. Give up vibrational clutter
It was the famous scientist Nikola Tesla who advised us to think in terms of energy, frequency, and vibration in order to find the secrets of the Universe. And by clearing your vibrational clutter you will discover, not just the secrets of the Universe, but also that your true nature is abundant.
11. Give up the need to be “loyal to your people”
Whether it’s your family, friends, your country or the whole world, you need to stop trying so hard to be “one of them”. Your loyalty to other people’s pain, suffering and lack of abundance won’t make the world a better place.
If you really want to help “your people”, help them by rising above yourself and your circumstances. Shine your light on them so that they can see their war out darkness. Help them by shining, not by hiding.
12. Give up your love-hate relationship with money
Stop giving money so much power over you. Money is not your master and you are not their slave. You are the master and they are the servant. The end!
13. Give up resentment
Whether this resentment is directed at yourself, your past, your country, the people around you – or simply at money and the idea of abundance, let it all go. Give up all that venom that has been poisoning you and your life and allow yourself to be free. Forgive, release and let go. Give up and be happy.
14. Give up guilt and shame
For having more than others, or less than you should. For wanting to buy the things you love and for doing the things you want to do.
Give it all up. Free your heart from all those money guilt and shame messages and make room in your heart for love. Always remember htat liberates and shame enslaves.
15. Give up the chase for money
Abundance is not something you chase after, it’s something you are. Something you tune into. And the more you chase after it, the more it will run away from you. Give up the chase. Relax into your being, and abundance will come your way.
