Here is a list of 15 things that, if you give them will make your life much easier and much, much happier. We cling to so many things that cause us a lot of pain, stress and suffering, and instead of letting go, rather than allowing ourselves to be stress free and happy, we cling to them. No longer. From today we will give up all those things that no longer serve us, and we will fight for change. Are you ready? Here we go:
# 1. Relinquish your need to always be right.
There are many of us who can not bear the thought of being wrong. Always wanting to be right, we risk ending up with great relationships or cause a lot of stress and pain, for us and for others. Just not worth it. Whenever you feel the “urgent” need to have a fight about who is right and who is wrong, ask yourself this question: “Would I rather be right, or rather be friendly” What difference will there be? Is your ego really so large as to not being able to avoid it?

# 2. Relinquish your need for control.
You must be willing to give up your need to always control everything that happens to you and around you – situations, events, people, etc. Whether you are loved ones, co-workers, or just weird you find on the street – only it allows them to be. Let everything and everyone to be as they are and see how much better it will make you feel.

# 3. Waiver of guilt.
Relinquish your need to blame others for what they have or do not have, so you feel or do not feel. Stop wasting your qualities and begin to take responsibility for your life.
# 4. Relinquish your inner dialogue self-defeating.
How many people are hurting themselves because of their negative mindset, polluted and repetitive? Do not believe everything your mind is telling you, especially if it is negative and counterproductive. You can be better than that.
“The mind is a superb instrument if used properly. However, if misused it becomes very destructive. ” Eckhart Tolle
# 5. Waiver beliefs that limit you
What you can or can not do, on what is possible or impossible. From now on, you will no longer allow your beliefs limit you and keep you trapped in the wrong place. Open your mind and experiment!
“A belief is not an idea in mind power, mind is the power of an idea.” Elly Roselle
# 6. Waiver complain.
Renounces the constant need to complain about many, many, many things; people, situations, or events that make you unhappy, sad and depressed. No one can make you unhappy, no situation can make you feel sad unless you allow it. It is not the situation that triggers these feelings in you, but how you choose to deal with it. Never underestimate the power of positive thinking.
# 7. Abandon the luxury of criticizing.
Renounces the need to criticize things, events or people who are different from you. We are all different, but we are all equal. We all want to be happy, we all want to love and be loved and we all want to be understood. We all want something, and that something is desired by all of us.
# 8. Give up your need to impress others.
Stop trying to be something you not only to make others accept you. It does not work this way. The moment you stop trying to be something you’re not is when you take all the masks, is the time when you really accept yourself and certainly find people who will be attracted to you, effortlessly.
# 9. Give up your resistance to change.
Change is good, will help you move from A to B. The change will help you make improvements in your life and in the lives of those around you. Do not oppose! go your way and accept the change.
“Follow your bliss and the universe will open doors where there were only walls” Joseph Campbell
# 10. Waiver tags.
Stop labeling those things, people or events which do not understand and see how rare or different and try to slowly open your mind. The mind only works when it is open. “The highest level of ignorance is when you reject something you know nothing about. Wayne Dyer
# 11. Renounce your fears.
Fear is just an illusion, it does not exist, create it yourself. Everything is in your mind. Corrects the inside and the outside will fall into place.
“The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.” Franklin D. Roosevelt
# 12. Abandon excuses.
Send them packing and tell them they’re fired. Your non longer need. Many times we simply due to the large number of excuses we use. Instead of growing and working on improving ourselves and our lives, we get stuck, we lie to ourselves, using all kinds of excuses; excuses that 99.9% of the time are not even real.

# 13. Abandon the past.
I know, I know, it’s very difficult. Especially when the past looks much better than the present and the future looks so scary, but must take into account the fact that the present moment is all you have and all you ever have. The past that are now craving and are dreaming, was ignored by you when I was your present. Stop kidding yourself. It is present in everything you do and enjoy life. After all life is a journey, not a destination. Have a clear vision for the future, get ready, but is always present in the now.
# 14. Abandon attachment.
This is a concept that is so difficult to understand, for most of us and I have to say it was for me too and it still is, but it is not impossible. You get better and better with time and practice. At the time of discard of all things, (and that does not mean you give up your love for them, because love and attachment have nothing to do with each other, the attachment comes from a place of fear, whereas love … well, true love is pure, kind, and caring, where there is love there can be no fear, and therefore, attachment and love can not coexist) you become so calm, so tolerant, so kind and serene that It comes to a place where you will be able to understand all things without even trying. A state beyond words.

# 15. Waiver live your life based on the expectations of others.
Too many people are living a life that is not what they should be living. They live their lives according to what others think is best for them, live their lives according to what their parents, to which his friends, his enemies and their teachers, their government and the media think is best for they. They ignore your inner voice, that inner call. They are so busy with pleasing everyone and meet the expectations of other people, who lose control over their lives. They forget what makes them happy, what they want, what they need …. and finally, they forget themselves. You have a life, at this time, so that you live, to appropriate it, and especially do not let the opinions of others distract you from your path.
