1. Your need to always be right.
Ask yourself, would I rather be right, or would I rather be kind?
2. Your need for control.
“Grant me serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference.”
3. Blaming others.
“It’s time to care; it’s time to take responsibility; it’s time to lead; it’s time for a change; it’s time to be true to our greatest self; it’s time to stop blaming others.”
4. Self-defeating self-talk.
“Don’t undermine yourself. The one person who should never undermine you, is you. Believe in possibilities. Believe in yourself. Believe you are capable. Engage in positive self-talk. Be an advocate for your betterment. Be your own friend. Be loving to yourself. Be forgiving to yourself. Encourage yourself. Celebrate yourself. Be gentle and kind with yourself. Let go of your limiting beliefs. You are capable of more than you think.”
5. Limiting self-beliefs.
“The only limits you have are the limits you believe.”
6. The need to impress others.
“The desire to impress others is one of the worst forms of mental imprisonment.”
7. Resistance to change.
“Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them- that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let the things flow forward in a natural way.”
8. Living life to others expectations.
‘If you don’t build your dream someone will hire you to help build theirs.”
9. Living in the past.
“If you are depressed you are living in the past. If you are anxious you are living in the future. If you are at peace you are living in the present.”
10. Attachment to external things.
“You only lose what you cling to.”
