Sometimes you have to “Give Up” before you can “Go Up”. Give up? That sounds strange coming from a Self Help Expert. Think about it, if you want excellent health and you smoke, you will have to “Give Up” smoking, if you drink you will have to “Give Up” drinking, and if you eat poorly you will have to “Give Up” junk food if…Good Health is your objective.
The same is true in business. There are some customers, clients, relationships, contacts, networks, products, associates and businesses that you have to “Give Up” before you can progressively “Go Up”. Giving Up on things that no longer work be it people, places or things is “Never Easy” but “Absolutely Necessary” to move on, move up and move forward. It is always painful to exit relationships be it business or personal even though they are no longer working and have become toxic.
I am always saddened when I have to finally “Give Up” on someone and walk away. My Mentor taught me it is the saddest day in the life of a protégé’ when their Mentor steps out of their life. My medical doctor told me on one visit “When you stop caring about your health is the day I stop caring about your health”. At first I was highly offended at his comment but on the way home I realized what he said was right and truthful.
As long as you hang on to and refuse to “Give Up” the things that no longer work or serve you they will continue to eat away your success, energy, time, life, finances, health and business. People have refused to “Give Up” smoking; excessive drinking and a host of other addictions and those things put them in their grave. Business owners have refused to “Give Up” bad customers and/or employees and it drove them into bankruptcy.
I do my best to serve and acquire the Right people and discipline; no force myself to “Give Up” the wrong people. By doing this I am able to do more good for people while at the same time be the best I can be. Take a look at your life and business and see if there is anything you need to…”Give Up” in order for you to “Go Up”
