Hey guys! Welcome back. I hope you had a great week. Today I wanted to talk about a few things that you can remove from your life that will help you progress. Because I think that is something that most of us want. We want to better ourselves and become the best version of ourselves that we can possibly be. So hopefully working to remove these things from your life can help you start to see that progress that you want. So let’s get into it.

Your expectations.

Having expectations sometimes holds us back and ends in disappointment. While it’s good to sometimes have expectations, it’s also important to remember that things won’t always work out the way we think they will. So it’s important to be able to go into a situation knowing that you don’t know what will happen and be prepared for that. This will help you be more understanding and be more open.

Your limiting beliefs.

Believing that you can’t do something or nothing will ever work out in your favor will hold you back a lot. These limiting beliefs prevent you from trying anything and that prevents you from having any progress. Let go of these beliefs and trust that what is meant to work out for you will work out.

3. Your excuses.

Our excuses are something that has a lot of control in our lives. We feel the need to make an excuse as to why we can’t do something or try something. We let our excuses take over so we don’t have to try anything that we are afraid to do or do the work that we don’t want to do. Excuses prevent progress.

Your inflexibility.

In other words, stop being so stubborn. Stop believing that what you think is the only thing that is right and understand that other views and other insights are just as valuable. Understand that the world is not just yours and things aren’t always as they seem. Learn to be more flexible and you can move through life much easier.

Your need to please others.

This is a big one that I am still working on. I feel the need to keep others happy so much that I often sacrifice my own happiness and my own needs to meet the needs of others. And while sometimes that is a good thing, I also need to remember to take care of myself and value my own happiness. I have learned that being able to prioritize myself ensures that I am doing what I need to do to progress.

Your fear of failure.

Fear of failure is sometimes rational, however, it is also one of the biggest things that keeps us from progressing. Fear of failure is something most of us struggle with and it usually comes with something we really want. So work to push that aside and overcome it so you can start progressing.

Your perfectionism.

Needing things to be perfect all the time and needing everything to work out before moving on to something else will prevent you from having much progress. It’s important to be able to move forward when you need to and know when it’s time to finish up one thing so you can move on to the next.

Your self-doubt.

If you constantly doubt yourself you will never have the confidence to do any of the things you want or go after any of your dreams and goals. Letting go of that self-doubt and working through it will allow you to go after your passions and move forward. It’s not an easy thing to do, but it’s worth it when you get there.

Your impatience.

Patience is really important when you want progress. Most great things don’t happen overnight. It takes a lot of time and a lot of effort to get where you want to be, so just remember to take your time and let it happen as it will. Give yourself the time you need to get what you want.

Your need to control everything.

This goes without saying, but you can’t control everything. Even if you really want to, it’s just not possible. So if you want to move forward you have to realize that some things are just beyond your control. You can only control what you do and how you respond. Understanding that can help you navigate your journey a lot easier.

Toxic behaviors and people.

Don’t let yourself fall into the trap of being toxic or being controlled by others who are toxic. Let go of those who make you feel any less than you are. Let go of behaviors you feel are holding you back. Let go of the negativity in your life and you will be surprised at how free you feel.

Your grudges.

Let go of any resentment you have for people. Learn to forgive so you can set yourself free and live your life on your terms. Don’t be bitter or angry at others because of things that are beyond your control. Just let go and learn to live your life without holding on to that negativity.
