Every woman has probably felt stuck at some point in her life, and it’s not easy getting over a rut especially if you don’t know what to do next. But before searching for what comes after, maybe you first need to focus on the now and look at all the weight you’ve been carrying. What’s dragging you down? What makes your life heavier than it actually is? If you want your journey towards success to be lighter and more enjoyable, then you need to let go of unneeded load, such as:

1. Your unhealthy habits

If you want to pursue what you want in life, you need to be strong in body and spirit. If you smoke, drink, or have other bad habits that you know aren’t good for you, let go of them. Of course, it’s easier said than done, but making the decision to quit can be the start of a new and better you.

2. Your excuses

There are so many seemingly “logical” reasons for not doing the things that you want to do but in reality, they’re only plain excuses. Are you staying in that unhealthy relationship because you still love him, or only because he has become a crutch? Are you not taking that once-in-a-lifetime trip because you don’t have funds, or because you’re scared? Are you not following your dreams because you feel they’re impossible, or because you don’t like change? Think about the real issues that your excuses are covering up. Accepting the truth can open new doors for you.

3. Your short-term tunnel vision

Instead of focusing on tingi goals, why not look at the bigger picture? Having something huge to look forward to is like having a destination to your journey. It doesn’t matter if it’s hard to accomplish or if it initially seems impossible—what matters is that you’re traveling with a purpose.


4. Your negative mindset

Being grounded is good, but focusing on defeat never helps anyone. Quit being a fatalist and instead allow yourself to be excited by the uncertainty of your future, because if you only give the Universe a chance to work its magic, it will help you get everything that you have always wanted. Live in positivity, and the world will follow.

5. Your toxic friends

There will always be people who will seem nice, but are actually sucking your hopes and dreams dry by convincing you that they can never come true. While it may seem cold, at some point you will outgrow them and leave them where they are, and when you do, you’ll finally be able to fully spread your wings.

6. Your obsession with perfection

Cliché as it is, the old adage holds true: no one and nothing is perfect. Even the most well-thought-out plans will have glitches, and even the most well-planned lives will always hit roadblocks. Allow yourself to make mistakes and stop thinking about being control of everything that happens around you, because newsflash—you never are. You can only prepare so much for what’s going to happen, and as for the rest, you’ll need to learn to ride the wind where it takes you. Relax, take a deep breath, and accept your faults, because your imperfections make you the wonderful person that you are.
