13 Things YOU Might GIVE UP on Valentine’s Day

I love to read. I love to ride a bike. I love to cook. I love to be with my grandkids. I love brussels sprouts. I love my clients. I love Survivor. I love my chiropractor. I love my nutritionist. I love to laugh. I love the Apollo Grill. I love my friends and colleagues. I love my faith. I love lemons. I love pink lady apples. I love summer .

Love is in the air. As Valentine’s Day approaches I was thinking about what many entrepreneurs give up in order to be successful and LOVE their work.

LOVE WILL BE IN THE AIR if you GIVE UP up something in order to be successful.

GIVE UP – the unhealthy lifestyle – start eating more veggies and fruit
GIVE UP – a short term mind set – think big
GIVE UP – on playing small – take bigger risks in order to grow
GIVE UP – your excuses – excuses don’t take you anywhere
GIVE UP – a fixed mindset – you must change your mind
GIVE UP – believing in a “magic bullet” – no magic in real success
GIVE UP – your perfectionism – perfection holds you back
GIVE UP – multi tasking – do one thing at a time
GIVE UP – your need to control everything – give it up
GIVE UP – to things that don’t support your goals – stay the course
GIVE UP – the toxic people – a must… toxic people will slow you down
GIVE UP – your need to be liked – you can’t please everyone
GIVE UP – give up your dependency on social media and television
“take time to see how much time this takes away from reaching your goals” (zdravko cvijetic)

I’m not asking anyone to give up all 13, but maybe you might consider two or three of them. When an entrepreneur sacrifices he/she will definitely see results. vocabulary.com says sacrificing is a loss or something you give up, usually for the sake of a better cause. Is your business the better cause? I would hope so. I love when my clients succeed. I love when my partners succeed. I love when my friends and family succeed.

Happy Valentine’s Day – I love the Home News and my readers!!!
