Sacramento, CA, January 11, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Motivational speaker and author Shawn Anderson takes the idea of “living a life one loves” seriously. With a mission of empowering one million people to lead a more positive and purposeful life, Anderson shares seven senseless habits to let go of in 2014.
Habit #1: Quit hanging out on Facebook.
“Facebook is a fun way to kill time,” Anderson says. “But that’s what it does: it kills time. Time that could be used to create, inspire and build.”
Habit #2: Quit Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
“Filling ones head with unedifying T.V. doesn’t do a lot to help him achieve a better life,” Anderson comments. “Instead, exchange an hour of TV time to build ones own dream rather than a celebrity’s dream.”
Habit #3: Quit staying up late.
“The surest way to be unmotivated on a Monday is to stay up late on a Sunday. Want to feel energized? Watch a few more sunrises.”
Habit #4: Quit spending money you don’t have.
“Having the freedom to do what one wants in life starts with not being chained down by financial obligations. Give the credit card a rest.”
Habit #5: Quit working at a job you hate.
“Nothing saps the life out of a person more than working at a job he hates. Find something else.”
Habit #6: Quit hanging out with negative people.
“If one has people in his life who drains him of all that is positive, he should ask himself ‘Why in the world are they even in his life?’”
Habit #7: Quit pointing fingers.
“Take a massive leap forward and take responsibility of ones own life. It’s not the boss’s fault…or the spouse’s…or the government’s that he is not where he wants to be. It’s ones own cause-and-effect decisions that have him sitting where he is.”
“Why would a person wants to live a life that makes him unhappy?” Anderson says. “People read everywhere about what they need to do to be successful. But if one will change a few of his habits, he’d be much closer to leading a life he loves.” Anderson continues, “Sure some of the seven items on the list may sound harsh, but if he doesn’t stop doing them, the lousy results he will produce later will feel a lot harsher.”
The author of six books, including A Better Life: An Inspiring Story About Starting Over and Extra Mile America: Stories of Inspiration, Possibility and Purpose, Anderson is also the Founder of “Extra Mile Day.” On November 1, 2013, 444 cities in all 50 states made the declaration to recognize the capacity each person has to create positive change for himself, families, organizations and communities when he “goes the extra mile.”
