What must you give up?

A negative discharge

Our goal quote today is from Sidney Howard who said,

One half of knowing what you want is knowing what you must give up before you get it.


Some of us need to give up telling ourselves negative things – also you may have people around you that are questing your sanity to pursue your goals – they may attempt to make you feel bad, or selfish, or wrong – that’s not about you – it’s about them and their place in their life and it’s all okay – Each of us has our own path and we can only be responsible for ourselves –

So ask yourself this 3rd day of 2012 – what do you need to give up before you can get what you want this year–

Negative self talk may be one

Negative people are another – and if you are related to them or work with them a technique that may work is not to justify, nor to argue, nor to defend – rather to wish them well.

I do this internally mostly – Saying something to myself like, “thank you -It’s not about you”

What I say to others that are giving me their opinion or questioning my path is this:

“Thank you for caring.” – Usually this stops them and if not I repeat it a couple of times – “That’s nice of you to care.” Of course mostly it isn’t caring that is prompting them to question you – it’s their own fears and limitations. So simply smile – because you’re on the right path which you chose and can use to your benefit.

Today – think about what might you need to give up to get what you want today and this year? Some negative thinking or maybe some negative people? It’s always a choice.


You create your day by the way you think – Make it magnificent!


Blessings, Shawna
