7 Things I Want To Give Up This Year

“It’s the oldest story in the world. One day, you’re 17 and you’re planning for someday. And then quietly without you ever really noticing it, SOMEDAY is TODAY. And then SOMEDAY is YESTERDAY. And this is your life.” -Anonymous

At some point in your life you will realize there are a lot of unnecessary things you do that you just want to buckle under your sheets now that you know better. You realized you don’t need these things or become a better version of yourself, that’s why you plan to make a list of things which you promise not to do anymore.

Things I want To Give Up Now That I’m A Year Wiser

1. EXCESSIVE TALKING (ME-&-MY-BIG-MOUTH SITUATIONS)

Admit it or not, when you are so happy you turn your opinion or “impression” knob so high that whatever you see, you say something about it. Not necessarily a needed suggestion, but it’s only your “mere” thoughts. However, when you get wiser you realize that there are boundaries you need to safeguard, for others not to get hurt or upset. Hence, you want to become more of a “listening” kind of person than being the talkative one.

2. REGRETTING TOO MUCH

You are not an ordinary person if you don’t have bones hidden in your closet that you want to bury with the past. However, when you regret that too often, that is unhealthy. Remember, don’t sacrifice your future because of your past. People make mistakes. If you have any regretful moment in your life, remember that it happened for a purpose. Forgive yourself, and move on.

3. UNREASONABLE SPENDING

Spending money like water is nothing but an ordinary scene which you can observe in most individuals, who just started earning their own money. It is given that you should also spend your hard-earned money in your wants; however, when you spend it too much and too often, it’s a different story.
 Satisfying yourself by buying that watch you really wish to have is different from buying a signature bag this month, after having bought a different one last month. That is already unreasonable spending. As you mature, you should realize the importance of every cent you earn, so instead of buying a lot of “wants” you should think of saving money for the future or at least for the rainy days.

4. TRUSTING TOO MUCH

Being one in the minority of your organizational chart, you often tend to be agreeable with everything your colleagues will tell you, because you want harmony in your work. However, at some point you will notice that they are already defiling your kindness, or worse is you got into trouble because your colleagues used you as their scapegoat. This time, you want to be more cautious.

5. UNHELPFUL COMPLAINING

When you were younger, you were used to getting what you want or letting others do what you need to do. So when you start your career, you sometimes forget that you were only starting as a novice. Hence, you tend to complain when people will try to oblige you to do something you thought would be out of your “job description.” Sometimes, it really happens. However, just remember that the more tasks they will impose on you, the better you’ll get in your job; because you will be exposed to small errands happening in your company. Remember, small things make great things. Soon enough, you will swim in the mainstream. So stop complaining, instead, ask for more and initiate.

6. GOSSIP MONGERING

This happens everywhere. Remember, there’s a reason why people talk behind someone else’s back; it means he is ahead of them. Don’t be that kind of person who starts a conversation to sabotage or mock someone’s career or reputation. You’re better than that.

A lot of problems in this world would disappear if we talk to each other instead of about each other.

7. SAYING NO TOO OFTEN

Sometimes, when you become more cautious not to fail or make mistakes, you often say NO to all the possibilities life has to offer. Common, turn away from that attitude; because the best way to learn is by failing and actually experiencing things. You were born not to be perfect, you were born to experience life.

FINAL THOUGHTS
Life’s greatest lessons are learned as you grow up. Not necessarily by age, but by decision. Growing old is different from growing up. While you are busy building your tangible assets, you sometimes forget to build your assets coming from within. Remember, they are also the building blocks of your future.
