One the most overlooked aspects of leading a successful life is the ability to forgive.
Forgiveness is important because it stops you from leading a happy, successful and abundant life.
“Holding onto anger is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die.” ~fake Buddha quote
Holding a grudge simply doesn’t serve you. If you are spending any time (no matter how small) being angry at someone then it is stopping or slowing you down on your journey to success. It might seem small but even if that time is as little as 15 minutes a day, it is time wasted that could be spent working on your goals and dreams.
15 minutes a day is 105 minutes a week and 420 minutes a month. That’s 84 hours a year! What if you spent those 84 hours reading more books or even writing a book? What if you spent 84 hours a year working out and getting healthier?
Life is too short to be angry at people.
Here are 3 things to remember to help you have more forgiveness in your life so you can be happier, healthier and wealthier.
Heads up: I’m offering a free audio mp3 so you can learn 6 Law of Attraction Life Hacks that will allow you to implement the Law of Attraction everyday in an effortless way.
1. Forgiveness is for you
Forgiveness is the gift that gives more for the giver than the recipient.
When we are angry and we refuse to give another person we get mad. We get hot and bothered meanwhile the person that we are mad at is just getting on with and living their life. They probably have no idea that you are angry at them.
When we are angry we are not easy to be around, we get annoyed easily and we annoy others with our behaviour. We act irrational. When we don’t forgive, we miss out on opportunities and we make bad impressions on people. We think that they suffer when we refuse to give when its actually us and our friends and our families that suffer when we refuse to forgive.
Forgiveness isn’t for the person that you are forgiving, it’s for you.
2. They don’t have to deserve it
Many of us think that forgiveness is a great privilege that we give to someone.
You think to yourself. I’ll forgive that person but only if they come crawling on their hands and knees and beg for forgiveness.
Forgiveness isn’t like a knighthood that you bestow on only the deserving. If forgiveness is really for you then the person that you are forgiving doesn’t have to deserve it nor do they have to ask for it.
If you want to get on with your life and stop wasting time, energy and emotion being angry at someone then get rid of the notion that they are not good enough to be forgiven.
This isn’t about letting them getting away with doing you wrong. If someone steals from you or otherwise treats you badly then you can still stand up for your rights or remove yourself from the situation. But if you really want to move on, you will have to forgive them.
If you wait until they deserve it, you may wait your whole life.
I talk about the 3rd thing to remember about forgiveness and also a bonus thought about forgiveness in the video.
If you don’t forgive, then the person that you hold a grudge against will continue to hurt you with actions that they did in the past. They will always be part of your thoughts and will always affect your life.
Who are you really hurting when you don’t forgive?
