Drop it and move on : The Kim Kardashian Way

By Monica Link
Live Your Dreams Now!

There was a famous rapper who said, "more money, more problems." What do you do when you make a bad decision or have bad people in your life? If you don't know, Kim Kardashian reality TV "it girl", filed for divorce after 72 days and a multi-million dollar televised fairytale wedding. She has been made fun of on every media outlet and called a sham and a fake.
We've all made bad decisions in our business and personal life. Some things we've done were really ridiculous while others were honest mistakes. No matter what we do, we can't hold on to things or stay in a place because we care what people think. When you make a mistake, you have to admit it and move on -period.
Instead of making fun of Kim, I think we can all learn a lesson from the most famous of the Kardashian clan.
We all saw it coming, Kim married an unknown basketball player who had a tough personality.  She filed for divorce quietly to get out of it, but was forced to release a statement as people slammed her with vicious comments and accusations.
Should Kim have taken marriage more seriously? YES! Once she walked down the aisle and filmed it for TV she was in over her head in a marriage she couldn't handle and trying to save face to the world. She could have stayed in it longer and tried to fix it, but deep down she knew it was doomed to fail.
She did a lot of things wrong in the situation. People got hurt and others got angry.
One thing Kim did right, she admitted her mistake publicly, dropped it and went back to work. She might have a hard time getting presents at her next wedding (She WILL do it again) but she will sleep better at night knowing she admitted her mistake. The public humiliation will eventually fade and people will go back to tuning in to her many reality shows.
Are you in a relationship, business deal or in a place where something is not working out? You owe it to yourself to let it go and move on to the thing you really want.
You likely have some friendships that need to end, business relationships that are not profitable or maybe you're trying to hang on to a career that's not for you or even bad real estate. Either way, it's time to drop it.
I'm not advocating for married people to drop their spouse like Kim, but I am advocating for people to drop what doesn't work and move on to what does work.
Drop the argument, move away from the bad thing and do what works for you. Apologize if anyone got hurt in your bad deal and start over.
The only way to live your dreams is to be honest with yourself. Stop holding on to things that hinder you and drop them. You'll be glad you did.
