Self Awareness
Stop Doing What is Not Good For You

The most self awareness way, maybe the only way, to make massive improvements in your life is to find out what you need to stop doing. It is not always about doing something, sometimes it is about the stopping.

I have come to this conclusion because it has just become so obvious. That the harm that a person does to himself and to the world is caused by doing things that are harmful, duh.

So why don't we just stop? Why don't we leave bad situations? Why do we stay and struggle and stay and fight?

That is what I am telling you, just stop.

It is very easy to stop once you start the process. Making positive changes in your life is the most important thing you can do for yourself. You can change. Change is good. Do you have enough self awareness to realize that change is really just self growth. Plus self improvement does not always have to be hard and difficult. There are easy personal development solutions. You just have to look for them, think about them and act on them.

The problem is in the starting of it. We are just so conditioned to never stop.

It is a built in mechanism, ingrained in us to never stop, never quit, just keep going. This is the idea that quitting is for losers. That winners never quit.

We are led to believe that in order to have courage we must never quit. Sometimes the most courageous thing to do is quit.

Do you remember No Mas? This was when Roberto Duran quit on his fight against Sugar Ray Leonard. He was ridiculed for this. In everyone's estimation he should have just gone back out to finish the fight.

Maybe he quit because he was getting the crap beat out of him and he did not want to risk getting his brains turned to mush or dying in the ring.

Maybe he thought of spending the rest of his life as a vegetable. Maybe he thought of his family seeing his lifeless body lying in the ring.

Sometimes the people you admire the most have quit some terrible situation or circumstance they were in.

What do you think about when you are doing something to yourself that is making your life miserable?

I know when my wife was giving me a vicious lecture that I was thinking of suicide. I was thinking that I just wish she would die.

I was not thinking that this is just such a great situation I am in and that I should just shut up and listen to her lectures and tirades. I wanted it to end.

This is what I mean by stopping. I stopped letting her slowly kill me by leaving her. My level of awareness of how the power of negative repetition was harming me allowed me to make the decision to leave. This was the best decision of my life, and the hardest. I cannot imagine anything being more difficult.

This is what I mean by stopping.

Stopping smoking.

Stopping drinking or drugs if it is too much for you.

Stop managing stress by overeating.

Stop the waste of time of watching too much sports and television.

Stop doing what you have always done. Find ways to eliminate fear and worry and improve your life. You eliminate fear by facing it and realizing it is not that bad. You are not your past, you can make massive changes for the better and you can start in an instant.

Stop waiting to lose weight to start living. Live now, even if you are fat. Work on fat loss, but more importantly, work on having a good life now. Read - Tips tor Fat Men and start living now. Have enough self awareness to realize that enjoying your life now is the most important thing you can do for yourself.

Stopping the believing that the government is a good thing. My view on the government is that people live and prosper in spite of the government not because of it. If you are honest with your thinking you will agree with that.

Shifting your self awareness from the government to yourself will automatically increase your freedom.

Say to yourself that the best things that have happened to you have been your doing. My best decisions were things I decided on, not others. Other people had nothing to do with the best things in my life. Other people and groups have only served to hurt me and slow me down and fill my head with bad thoughts.

The only reason that the government does not have things any more screwed up is that decent people are involved and continue to do enough decent things to make it right.

My view is that if government did not exist, the amount of good would be so great that the world be just be unbelievably great.

This world starts with you having enough self awareness to do what you know is right for you.
