Six Things to Give Up Today

For those trying to improve the quality of their life, the following two lists will help you do just that. We live in a world where many people have a victim mentality and really believe that life happens to them, rather than life being something they can take control of.

With all that is going on around you these days, with COVID impacting everyone in some way, it’s easy to focus on those things that are beyond your control. I want to help you today to focus on what you CAN control.  

Regardless of what is going on around you and the difficulty of your situation, take some time to contemplate how your life would be different if you gave up these 6 things:

1. Complaining
2. Holding grudges
3. Self-doubt
4. Negative thinking
5. Blaming
6. Living in fear


The “give up” list is something that we have to choose daily.  Our natural tendency as humans is to do every one of those things we should be giving up.

When things are difficult and your facing situations that are unfair, or dealing with difficult people, it’s easy to to DO the very thing that is only going to make your life harder.

Instead of doing the things on the list above, decide that you will not allow any of those things to be a part of your life today. Rather, choose to DO those things listed below and watch how you feel better, feel more in control, and watch the quality of your life improve.

1. Compliment others
2. Forgive quickly
3. Show self-confidence
4. Think positive
5. Accept responsibility
6. Live with courage


Just like the “give up” list, you must make a decision to do the 6 things on the second list. 

Take control of your life.

You have much that you can do, regardless of how difficult your current situation is.

You’ve got what it takes!

Life is what you make it.

Life is what you make it.

Yes, even in the midst of the COVID-19 Pandemic, the quality of your life is not in your circumstances, it’s not in what you can or cannot do, it’s not a result of how much is in your bank account, or anything else.

The quality of your life is the quality of your thoughts, attitudes, and actions. This is so important to understand because this means that when things all around you are spinning out of control, YOU are still in control of your life.

What you feed grows, what you starve dies

One of my favorite tales is of an old Eskimo fisherman who owned two dogs.  One was a black dog, the other was white.  He trained these two dogs to fight on command and on Saturday’s he’d take his two dogs to the town square to fight.  The townspeople would gather around and he would always take bets as to which dog would win the fight.

7 Ways to Make it A Great Day

1. Focus on other’s needs instead of your wants.  The great Zig Ziglar used to say, “You’ll get everything you want out of life if you just help enough people get what they want.”  Be the kind of person who thinks of others before yourself.  Remember Self-absorbed people are miserable.

2. Listen first, speak second.  There is a reason God gave you two ears and one mouth!  Listen twice as much as you speak.  Do people say you are a good listener?  With a little practice this is a skill you can easily develop and will help improve every relationship you have.

There is a reason God gave you two ears and one mouth…so you can listen twice as much as you speak! Click To Tweet

3. Resist the urge to complain.  It won’t make anything better and it brings negative energy to the room.  This isn’t you!  Bring positive energy with your presence, your words, and your attitude.  People will want to be around you.

4. Count your blessings not your problems.  No matter how bad things are or how many problems you are dealing with, stop and count your blessings.  And start with the ones we so easily take for granted.

Count your blessings, not your problems. Click To Tweet


5. Respond instead of react.  When you are sick and have a reaction to your medicine that’s bad; when your body responds that’s good!  If you are faced with a situation that makes you angry today do not react out of emotion. Be the kind of person who responds rationally with thought and poise. 

6. Make time to exercise!  You know you need to. You want to. You plan to…If this is describers you get some momentum this week by starting today.  You’ve heard it said, “Day One or One day?   Your body will release endorphins and you’ll feel better, be more focused, and have more energy.

7. Acknowledge God is your source and be continually thankful for every breath He gives.  Always acknowledge that God is the source of your life and the giver of every good thing you have. 
 

Choose to make it a great day!

Problem or Opportunity? | Opportunity

Problem or Opportunity

Replace the word ‘problem’ with ‘opportunity’ and see what good things will happen.   Obstacles are simply opportunities for growth and growth is never easy-but it’s always worth it.

We all have problems. We all have obstacles in our way that we must figure out how to navigate around.   Too many times we give up when we are faced with something negative. Don’t give up! Keep moving forward.
