Ok so when we plan out our plan for our life there’s probably going to be some things that you have to give up in order to accomplish your life plan, right? Well in Larry Winget’s book People Are Idiots and I Can Prove It!: The 10 Ways You Are Sabotaging Yourself and How You Can Overcome Them he talks about making up your list of things that you’re willing to give up in order to reach your life plans.
Here’s mine that I’m going to share with you. Remember, I encourage you to write your own give up list at home. You can share some of the things you’re going to give up here or keep them to yourself, but the important thing is that you do it and actually write it down. I’m actually going to type both of my lists up neat and print it out and frame it and hang it in my bathroom (we’re going to get a printer tonight when Kathy get’s home from Joe’s soccer game.)
-I’m going to give up watching t.v. at night when I could be putting out bandit signs, making offers or making phone calls.
-I will give up sleeping in when I should be working by putting out bandit signs, making offers, visiting properties for sale or that sold, and making phone calls.
-I will give up fast food.
-I will give up soda.
-I will give up white flour.
I will give up white sugars.
-I will give up negativity.
-I will give up talking as much as I do to people who aren’t as productive as they could be and should be and who always bitch and complain.
-I will give up watching t.v. when I should be on appointments or getting on appointments or making offers, putting out bandit signs, etc.
-I will give up sleeping in when I should be on appointment or getting on appointments or making offers, putting out bandit signs, etc. etc.
-I will give up thinking that I can be successful without actually working hard for it.
-I will give up calling myself lazy, so that I will believe in myself and my ability to work always.
-I will give up going to bed so late that I’m too tired to play with the kitty’s.
-I will give up my time on Sundays to spend time with my mom and Mike (stepdad) and my father and Lisa (stepmom.)
-I will give up going to bed late and watching tv late (you can have the give up portion, but nothing else from the My Life Plan portion lol
Ok so that’s it. That wasn’t so hard, eh? Again, I can’t wait to get a printer and type this up all nice and neat and then I’m going to hang it in my bathroom (Kathy will be thrilled I’m sure In case you forgot, here’s my life plan list that I’m giving all of the above up for.
