New year a day that is celebrated by everyone around the world. On this very day, each of us look forward to start the year with nothing but positivity and enthusiasm in hopes that the coming year will be the best year yet. So before we usher in the new year, we need to ditch our old habits and start anew. If you’re one of those who are looking for a brand new start, here’s a list of things you need to quit before 2019.
1. Quit comparing
Life is not a competition. Everyone is walking their own journey and your duty is to write your own unique story. Why compare when you can shine in your own way? If you need to compare, be better than the person you were yesterday.
2. Quit toxic friends
Friends who bring you down, criticize you to make themselves feel better about their own- they are not your friends. They simply can’t let you be happy or successful.
3. Quit that job that degrades your talent
If you dread mornings (especially on a working day), that, my friend, is a sign that you need to move on. If you loathe the things you need to do on a daily basis, you despise your bosses or your colleague, and perhaps not having the sense of belonging even after spending the last 1 year with the company, more often than not, it will pretty much stay this way forever.
Whether it’s financial or mental point of view, find a job that is able to serve you just as how you are going to spend bulk of your life serving the company.
4. Quit seeking to meet others’ expectations
Do more than just exist. We all exist, but only a handful of us actually live.
You are the star in your own life. If you have one life to live, you might as well try your very best in everything you do even if it means defying social standards. Greatness are for the insanity.
5. Quit setting unrealistic goals
We meant new year resolutions. If you fail to plan, then you plan to fail. Make short but realistic goals based on your lifestyle. Once you’ve achieve them, move on to another set of goals. Either way, progress to better than not starting at all.
