We all are guilty of some of these actions.
The best thing to do is remember each day to live your life to the fullest, be grateful for, and appreciate the things that makes us happy.
- Stop Running From Your Problems
Face them head on. No, it won’t be easy. There is no one in the world capable of blocking every punch thrown at them. We aren’t supposed to be able to instantly solve every problem. We are emotional beings, we’re made to feel sadness, anger, hurt, stumble and sometimes fall. The whole purpose of living is to face life situations … learn, love, teach, adapt, and solve problems over the course of time. Dealing with your problems is what makes you strong.
- Stop Putting Your Needs on The Back Burner
One of the saddest things is losing yourself in the process of loving someone else. Forgetting that you are special too. Yes, help others; but don’t neglect yourself. If there was ever a moment to follow your dreams and do something that matters to you .…that moment is now.
- Stop Acting Like Everything is Fine When it’s Not
No one is strong 100 percent of the time. It’s okay to fall apart for a little while. You don’t have to pretend that everything is going well when it’s not. Stop being concerned with what other people are thinking – cry if you need to – let someone hold you if it’s necessary – it’s healthy to shed your tears. The sooner you do, the sooner you will be able to smile again.
- Stop Trying to Be Someone You’re Not
One of the greatest challenges in life is being yourself. Face the facts…. Someone will always be prettier, someone will always be smarter, someone will always be younger, but there will never be another you!
- Stop Hanging out With The Wrong People
Life is too short to spend time with people who suck the joy right out of you. If someone wants you in their life, they’ll make room for you. You shouldn’t have to fight for a spot.
Don’t hang around someone who constantly overlooks your worth. And remember, it’s not the people that stand by your side when you’re at your best, but the ones who stand beside you when you’re at your worst that are your true friends.
- Rid Yourself of The “Whoa is Me” Attitude
Stop always feeling sorry for yourself. Life’s curve-balls are thrown for a reason – to shift your path in a direction that is meant for you. You may not see or understand everything the moment it happens, and it may be tough for awhile . But reflect back on those negative curve-balls thrown at you in the past. You’ll often see that eventually they led you to a better place, person, state of mind, or situation. So smile! Let everyone know that today you are a lot stronger than you were yesterday, and that you hit hat curve-ball out of the park!
- To Err is Human
Stop Being Scared to Make a Mistake. Doing something and getting it wrong is at least ten times more productive than doing nothing. Every success has a trail of failures behind it. Smart people learn from the mistakes they make and change things so that the same mistake does not happen again. Research tells us that if we’re only concerned about getting the right answer, we don’t always learn the underlying concepts that help us truly understand whatever we’re trying to figure out. Do nothing, and you end up regretting the things you did NOT do far more than the things you did.
- Stop Trying to Buy Happiness
Many of the things we desire are expensive and unnecessary. The truth is, a lot of things that we really NEED in life and satisfy us the most, are totally free – love, laughter, family, friends, and working on our passions. The things that we WANT may satisfy us for a short period, but without the above, that joy is usually short lived.
- Stop Looking to Others For Happiness
If you’re not happy and comfortable with who you are on the inside, you won’t be happy in a relationship with someone else either. Being happy comes from feeling at peace and deeply satisfied with who we are as a person. Don’t allow someone else to have control over how you feel on a daily basis. First it’s not fair to put that kind of pressure on someone and second and foremost, it’s your responsibility to create stability and happiness in your own life before you can share it with someone else.
- Ready or Not…
Stop thinking you’re not ready. Most people don’t feel 100% ready when an opportunity arises, even the most confident person will have a small amount of doubt. Many opportunities in life force us to go beyond our comfort zone, things will change. Change can be scary and risky but necessary to capitalize on most opportunities. Don’t let fear hold you back.
- Stop Getting Involved in Relationships for The Wrong Reasons
Relationships must be chosen wisely. It’s better to be alone than to be in bad relationship. There’s no need to rush. If something is meant to be, it will happen – in the right time, with the right person, and for the best reason. Fall in love when you’re ready, not just because you’re afraid of being alone.
- Stop Rejecting New Relationships Just Because Old Ones Didn’t Work
In life you’ll realize that there is a purpose for everyone you meet. Some will test you, some will use you and some will teach you. But most importantly, some will bring out the best in you. Your job is to learn from past relationships, not paint everyone with the same brush. Don’t reject Mr. Right because you have been burned by Mr. Wrong
- Stop Trying to Compete Against Everyone
Don’t worry about what others are doing better than you. Concentrate on improving yourself. The things that others have or have achieved may not be what you need to make you happy. Success is a battle between YOU and YOURSELF only.
- Stop Being Jealous of Others
Jealousy and envy are two of the most common negative emotions. Being jealous of others not only makes you miserable, it also makes it harder to get ahead in your career, and reach your goals. Stop counting someone else’s blessings instead of your own.
- Stop Trying to Hold on to The Past.
One of the biggest issues so many of us have is holding on to the hurt or the pain of what happened years ago. You can’t start the next chapter of your life if you keep re-reading your last one. The sooner you can let go of the past, the sooner you can get on with the now.
- Stop Holding Grudges
Don’t live your life with hate in your heart. You will end up hurting yourself more than the people you despise. Forgiveness is not saying, “What you did to me is okay.” It is saying, “I’m not going to let what you did to me ruin my happiness forever.” Forgiveness is the answer… let go, find peace, liberate yourself! And remember, forgiveness is not just for other people, it’s for you too. If you must, forgive yourself, move on and try to do better next time.
- Stop Letting Others Bring You Down to Their Level
Don’t lower your standards for anyone, or feel bad about keeping your standards high. By refusing to lower your standards you will weed out the negative people in your life. Never lower your standards to accommodate those who refuse to raise theirs. You will create more meaningful, lasting relationships by doing this.
- Stop Wasting Time Explaining Yourself to Others
Your friends don’t need an explanation and your enemies won’t believe it anyway. Just do what you know in your heart is right and what makes you happy.
- It’s The Small Things That Counts
Stop overlooking the beauty of small moments. Enjoy the little things, because one day you may look back and discover they were the things that meant the most. Some of the best portions of your life will be the small, nameless moments you spend smiling with someone who matters to you.
- Practice Does Not Always Make Perfect
Stop trying to make things perfect.. The real world doesn’t reward perfectionists, it rewards people who get things done.
- Stop Following The Path of Least Resistance
Taking the path of least resistance is a fact of nature. Life is not easy, especially when you plan on achieving something worthwhile. If you don’t like the results you’re getting in some aspect of your life – your economic situation, your personal situation, your health, – it’s time to take a new path, one that’s not so easy. Opportunity rewards people who step outside their comfort zone.
- Stop Blaming Others For Your Troubles
It’s easier to blame others for your problems than it is to take responsibility for them. It’s easier to blame others for holding you back than it is to take action and improve. If you blame some outside force then you can’t be held accountable for your situation. Keep doing this and you will never be truly successful or happy.
- Stop Trying to Be Everything to Everyone
Doing so is impossible, and trying will only burn you out. But making one person smile CAN change the world. Maybe not the whole world, but their world. So narrow your focus.
- Stop Worrying so Much
Worrying can be helpful when it spurs you to take action and solve a problem. But if you’re preoccupied with “what ifs” and worst-case scenarios, worry becomes a problem. Unrelenting doubts and fears can be paralyzing. They can sap your emotional energy, send your anxiety levels soaring, and interfere with your daily life. You have to train your brain to stay calm and look at life from a more positive perspective.
- No Negative Vibes
Positive thinking is at the forefront of every great success story. Positive thinking doesn’t mean that you keep your head in the sand and ignore life’s less pleasant situations. Positive thinking just means that you approach unpleasantness in a more positive and productive way. You think the best is going to happen, not the worst. Try thinking positive thoughts for what you want to happen.
