Let go

Are you holding on a relationship that’s not worth your time and energy?

Yes?

We all know that our life is lived only once still we keep holding on relationships that do not shower us with love, empowerment, and encouragement.

We “hope” that things will work out one day.

  • That friend who has gone kaput will again be my closest friend … one day …
  • That pretty girl will say yes to my marriage proposal … one day …
  • That bad customer will turn into good … one day …
  • My mother-in-law (or boss) will stop shouting at me … one day …

One day!

We keep waiting but the “one day” NEVER comes.

Or even if it comes, it comes at a time we’ve stopped waiting for it.

What’s the point?

So, today let go of every relationship – real or imaginary – that constantly hurts you – do not keep people in your life who do not motivate you, encourage you, enhance you and make you feel good for who you are.

Your present being is inclusive of them. Exclude them today from your life.

“When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.” ~ Lao Tzu

Let go.

Do not look back. Do not hold onto your past. Do not keep thinking about what you could have done differently.

“It’s OK to move on. You owe it to yourself to move on. You owe it to yourself to be happy with the relationships you have.” ~ The Minimalistc (Joshua Fields Millburn & Ryan)

Let go.

Lori Deschene of Tiny Buddha has written a wonderful post called How to Let Go of a Past Relationship. Read it today. It provides useful insights on letting go.

Let go.

You will never regret your decision and the world will get a happier you … and you’ll enjoy it too!

How to excel at a skill?

What do you need to excel at a skill?

Wondering what it could be?

Too many people believe that to excel at a skill, they need to make revolutionary changes in the way they think, feel and behave.

That’s not true.

To excel at a skill, you need to make a small change but on a consistent basis.

To make a small change on a consistent basis, you need intentional focus and undivided attention to the task at hand.

(BTW, Intentional Focus and Undivided Attention are the focus-keywords I’ve given to my team this year.)

You need small yet consistent steps towards the apex of the skill-excellence.

Small is easy to start. Small is easy to measure. Small is easy to retrospect. Small is easy to correct.

Small is simple. Simple gets done, fast!

If you get better at your Photoshop skills 1% each day for the next six weeks, you will see a 40% improvement in your Photoshop skills.

40% is a huge improvement, isn’t it?

It’s true for any other area of your life: health; cooking; coding; public speaking … or any other area. You can excel at almost any skill you can think of.

Getting better by just 1% does not require you to make revolutionary changes in the way they think, feel and behave.

That’s less scary too.

So now you’re not scared, who’s stopping you from getting better at any skill you want in just about six weeks?

Any skill?
