Things to give up and habits to develop for a better new you in 2017!

Winston Churchill said “never, never give up!” But, to really live the life you’ve always wanted, you will have to give up some old, destructive behaviors and develop new habits.

It is said “bad habits are easy to form but hard to live with. Good habits are hard to form, but easy to live with.”

Blogger Zdravko Cvijetic, educator, posted on his platform 13 things you need to give up to become a top-performer in life by mastering your habits and productivity and use it to build a personal brand.

You can give up on some of them today, while it might take a bit longer to give up on others.

1. Give up on the unhealthy lifestyle

“Take care of your body. It’s the only place you have to live.”  — Jim Rohn

Healthy Diet. Physical Activity. Rest. 

2. Give up the short-term mindset

“You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.” Mae West

3. Give up on playing small

“Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people will not feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone, and as we let our light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” 

— Marianne Williamson

4. Give up your excuses

“It’s not about the cards you’re dealt, but how you play the hand.” ―Randy Pausch, The Last Lecture

5. Give up the fixed mindset

“The future belongs to those who learn more skills and combine them in creative ways.” ―Robert Greene, Mastery

6. Give up believing in the “magic bullet”

“Every day, in every way, I’m getting better and better.”  — Émile Coué

7. Give up perfectionism

Nothing will ever be perfect, no matter how much we try.

8. Give up multi-tasking

Being fully present and committed to one task, is indispensable.

9. Give up your need to control everything

“Some things are up to us, and some things are not up to us.”  — Epictetus, Stoic philosopher

10. Give up on saying YES to things that don’t support your goals

“He who would accomplish little must sacrifice little; he who would achieve much must sacrifice much; he who would attain highly must sacrifice greatly.”  — James Allen

11. Give up the toxic people

“You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” ―Jim Rohn

12. Give up your need to be liked

“The only way to avoid pissing people off is to do nothing important.”  — Oliver Emberton

13. Give up your dependency on social media and television

“The trouble is, you think you have time.”  — Jack Kornfield
