15 Things to stop doing to yourself – Women’s Day Speaker

We are all guilty of doing things to ourselves that prevent us from moving forward and living the life we want to live. As a well-known Women’s Day Speaker and Corporate Image Strategist, Haydee Antezana aims to equip the women in your office to celebrate who they really are. This article shares some of the skills she’s learnt that will help you and your team improve their lives right now.

Here are 15 things you should stop doing from here on:

1.       Stop spending time with the wrong people

Surround yourself with people who bring out your best, not the stress in you. Life is too short to fill it with energy thieves.

2.       Stop putting your needs on hold

We are so busy trying to make everyone else happy that we forget about ourselves. You need to put petrol in your emotional and spiritual tank before you start giving of others.  Are you running on fumes right now?

3.       Stop trying to be someone you’re not

Stop comparing yourself to your friend, your colleague, the celebrity on TV. What a boring world it would be if we were all the same. You are UNIQUE – unlike anyone else.

 4.       Stop holding  onto the past

You cannot move forward if you keep looking in the rear view mirror. Remember, the past is gone it can hurt you no more – only your thoughts can hurt you.

 5.       Stop being scared to make a mistake

Our mistake make us stronger and better people, it also makes us more adaptable and more willing to deal with change, which is becoming so important in our fast-moving world.

6.       Stop thinking you’re not ready

We are never completely ready to try something new – there will always be feelings of anxiousness or fear. Overcoming our fear is what helps us succeed in the end.

7.       Stop trying to compete against everyone else

Don’t compare other people’s success with yours. Set your own goals and focus your efforts on achieving them. Success is an internal battle between you and yourself, no one else.

 8.       Stop being jealous of others

This is a waste of time and energy. Stop the reen monster in its tracks – be content for others good fortune – the universe will reward you for it.

9.       Stop complaining

Life is tough – put on your big girl panties and deal with it. Stop complaining for 24 hours – if you can manage try it for 1 week-if you can manage try it for a month.  You will not believe how your life will change!

10.   Stop wasting time explaining yourself to others

Be authentic in all you do – if you need to be constantly explaining yourself to others – they don’t get you. This can be very energy draining.

 11.   Stop trying to make things perfect

In the history of the world there has never been a PERFECT human being . So let go of the need to do everything perfect all of the time – you are going to be mentally, physically and emotionally exhausted in no time.

12.   Stop blaming others for your troubles

Take responsibilities for your actions and acknowledge your mistakes. Your success depends on it.

13.   Stop trying to be everything to everyone

It’s impossible to be all things to all people all the time. The only thing you will achieve is stress and burnout.  Do you suffer from the disease to please?

14.   Stop worrying so much

There’s a saying that goes: “Worrying is like paying interest on money you never borrowed.”

Ask yourself if what you’re worrying about will matter in a week, a month, or a years’ time. If the answer is no, then don’t waste your time and energy. Enjoy this moment – it will never occur again.

15.   Stop focusing on what you don’t want to happen

Focus your energy on what you want not what you don’t want.  Create affirmations and visualizations around all that you wish to bring into your life. If you don’t have a dream you will never have a dream come true.
