“Abandon anything about your life and habits that might be holding you back. Learn to create your own opportunities.” – Sophia Amoruso
Makes sense doesn’t it?
Why would you continue to do anything that is harmful or hurting your chances of moving forward with your goals?
Well, let’s talk addictions for a moment. If you are exercising and using drugs, tobacco, or drinking, you’re actually working against yourself. These would be a few things I would abandon now, rather than later, if I was serious about a healthy, long-lasting existence.
What’s another major inhibitor for moving forward? Fear. A close friend of fear is anger. If you are angry and afraid you will be mad that you aren’t moving forward and fearful of doing so. Crazy right? But this is another huge trap for people. Fear will paralyze you, anger will alienate you.
So what does this quote teach us? It teaches us to let go of anger and fear. It teaches us to let go of toxic relationships. It teaches us to let go of bad habits like smoking, drinking, and drugs. It teaches us to let go of thoughts and feelings that tell us that we’re not good enough, not strong enough, or not pretty or handsome enough.
I hope all of you can achieve what you are striving for.
Until next time…
