Cut the crap

If you want to move forward in life, you need to cut the crap out of your life. So often we settle for good in stead of being great. We see how far we can get away with things. We want to be in great shape but still we have cheat days, cheat meals or drinking alcohol regularly. We exercise only 3 days while we should train 4 to 5 days per week to reach our goal. We let stinkin’ thinkin’ get the better of us, so we procrastinate and fail to meet our obligations.

Cutting the crap out of your life, is not just about food and exercise. It is about negative thinking, being overwhelmed by emotions. The people you hang out with, who are putting you down or drain your energy. Having to look after all the “stuff” you have that you don’t really need. Just crap. If you are honest with yourself, you know exactly what those are.

Start small. Every week get rid of an item, a habit, a food, a person or whatever is holding you down. There is nothing wrong with having emotions, as long as they don’t consume you. Staying anger for days, doesn’t help you, nor is being sad. Start with getting your diet right. The better you eat, the more energy you will have to get after the other crap in your life.

Social media can have a negative effect on you. It leads to depression, anxiety, sleeping problems and addiction to name a few. Be wise with what you are watching. There is a lot of crap out there, but there is also lots of things you can learn. And there are amazing and inspirational people to follow. Just watch less and work on your own life instead.

Don’t be hard on yourself if it is difficult to let go of certain things in your life. It is about making progress, not being perfect. On the other hand stop making excuses. There is a fine balance between being gentle with yourself and when you need to have a kick in the butt. If you are truly honest, you know when you need what.

Why is it so hard to let go of old habits and beliefs? That is because you are ruled by your subconscious mind for around 95% of your day. You think your conscious mind is driving the car. But as soon as you have fear, anxiety, being confused or poisoned with coffee or alcohol, your subconscious mind puts you in the back seat and takes over the steering wheel. The subconscious mind notices that you are not up to par, so it takes over to keep you safe. The subconscious mind however is where all your habits are stored. And to keep you safe it will conform and not rock the boat. If you want change in your life, you need to get the conscious mind back behind the steering wheel.
