What attitude or behavior are you hanging onto that doesn't serve any beneficial purpose?
That is, what vestigial structures could you do without?
Let me explain.
You see, unless you've had them removed -- or you're a very unusual specimen -- the physical part of you is carrying around a few unnecessary parts.
Your appendix, for example, doesn't appear to do anything except give the surgeons who remove them the opportunity to make another car payment or upgrade their club membership.
Likewise, your coccyx (aka tailbone) isn't really necessary. I mean, unless you actually have a tail. If that's the case, then yes, you need your coccyx. More power to you. Here's a banana.
Oh, and let's not forget your wisdom teeth. Despite their clever name, they don't actually make you wiser and they don't have any more wisdom than any of your other teeth. In fact, their only known purpose is to hang around at the end of the street, push your other teeth around, and make you need braces. Of course, on the good side, at least your wisdom teeth are cavity prone, hard to clean behind, and nearly impossible to floss. Dentists rejoice!
That's the physical side, but what about your you side?
What attitude or behavior are you hanging onto that serves no useful purpose?
- Destructive relationships
- Meaningless activities
- Harmful habits
- Poisonous anger
- Ignorant prejudices
- Unrepentant guilt
- Willful defiance
- Irrational fears
- Paralyzing doubts
Whatever it is, it's holding you back from being the best you that you can be.
You may not even notice anything, just like you don't notice your appendix until it explodes or your coccyx until you do a crash landing on it.
Just because you haven't noticed it doesn't mean it isn't there.
Identify it and let it go.
It may take a while, especially if you've been living with it for a long time.
But you can do it.
Be purposeful and remove it from your life.
Just stop it!
