“When you’re unhappy, I guess everything in the world – reading; eating, sleeping has something buried somewhere inside it that just makes you unhappier.” ― Nick Hornby
Behind every successful man, there’s a lot of unsuccessful years. – Bob Brown
Have you ever ask anyone to live a life with complete happiness and success? What did they say to you? Of course, they will say “yes” because everyone’s dream is that, but in the same manner, if you ask them to work hard for that, they will find an excuse.
Even they will say it’s not worthy of them or it’s too hard, but the truth is that if you have not had the courage or dedication to follow the hardship, how come you think that you deserve that.
Without hardships, there is no fruit waiting for you. So today I have written those habits which will block you from going there.
Let us explore these Habits Through this Article
Wakening up In the Morning Without any Question: So, you have learned that ‘wake up’ in the morning is the greatest habit of a successful person, but you still don’t know that there is a thin line that works between a successful person and a happy soul.
Happiness and success both are different; to become happy you need to ask some questions every day in the morning. Would you love to do that or are you doing that now? What are the questions that make you happy or force you to think about your situation?
Here are some of the questions that I ask myself every day in the morning.
- Having additional works: Does this matter after five years from now?
- For fear of taking new task: What if this is the last day of my life?
- In small fights and gossips: What legacy I am going to leave behind?
- For showing anger to someone: How many people will smile because of me?
Following an Imaginary Person Instead of Your True Self: I am not blaming anyone for that; it’s completely natural, but there are some people those who turn these habits as an addiction. They always try to follow the trend instead of their true self.
They wish to become an imaginary person; that might be a perfect person’s example in their eyes. They forget to see their qualities; they don’t appreciate their present.
Do you have these qualities; do you wish to become a wealthy person or do you want to play like a famous football player?
The cure is always simple; wish never turns you like them; nor do you become an extraordinary person in one day. A trend comes and goes; what lasts long is your passion; stick to your one passion; if you wish to become a famous player first start sweating for that; furthermore if you would like to become a wealthy person than find the ways to help others.
Surrounding You with Negative Environments: In a way every negative person, negative news, negative talks affects us; whether we understand it or not; it might seem to us that we are okay with it, but in the long run it affects.
I am not saying that we should straight away, neglect every negative news or negative person or adverse situations; that’s not practical at all, but the question is whether we are aware of that or not; are we being able to understand that what is good for us or what is bad?
For a healthy living, we must try to achieve a positive environment. The positive atmosphere needs to become our priority.
Bring those qualities which are worthy of life change, which will contribute to your progress; for a healthy change that will lead you to get things done.
Getting Down by the Criticism of Others: If you wish to do something without ever being criticized by other people’s chances are lesser that you will ever do anything. Starting is always important whether you are perfect or not.
Mistakes are the part of our work; nobody becomes an expert in one day; it’s a process; have you learned writing in one day or have you learned to speak in one day.
Nobody becomes successful in any stream of life without facing the failures; there are hundreds and thousands of examples of people those who have achieved success in life with full of failures.
One thing that is common with these people is, they never quit from their dreams, nor even they lose their confidence. For them; everything is part of their job.
Although I am not saying that you should neglect criticism; as of my best knowledge, I find it as an improvement process. Take those into account that has the adequate power. Constructive criticism is far better than blindly praising.
Losing Focus on the subject that matters: None of us wants to get down on the ladder of success, yet most of us don’t follow the rules for that instead we do the opposite. For example, we wish to see ourselves creative, yet we copy others.
If you want to see you happy and successful in life, then the first thing you will need to do is to focus on one subject.
Sart not getting distracted from the work that you care most. Respect your job and give your 100 present into it even when it may seem that it’s not enough.
Focus gives you energy and a challenge to progress in life. It helps you build the empire you want; channel your all positive energy into your one work.
Carrying a Complaining Mindset all the time: Would you love to live your life with someone who complains a lot; no not at all right? Nobody likes that; it’s a sign of a negative mindset. Those who complain all day long hardly find happiness, because they miss the opportunity to experience the small moments of their life while they are busy with complaints.
Complaining about a topic never brings the solution instead you can put your energy to solve that, be a problem solver, not a complainer. Solvers are the leaders; complainers are the crowd.
Watch a problem carefully; you will find that there are always an opportunity to make a new difference, and those differences will give you success.
Not Finishing a Task that you have started: One sign of a failure person is they never finish their work. One day they become enthusiastic and start a new work after sometimes spending they found it difficult to pursue more.
Furthermore, even in these cases, motivation doesn’t work for them. As they already wish to give up, they will make you a hundred reasons for quitting their job instead of the positive sides.
In opposite, a successful and happy human being sticks to their work even if the time goes bad. They find the ways to solve the problem so that shortly no one ever faces that problem again. They create an opportunity for them and the beginners.
Not Taking Care of Your Body: Irrespective of work our body is also important, but most people ignore that, Ignoring your body will not only bring unhealthiness but also reduce your productivity.
Create a schedule for daily exercise, yoga, and meditation. Make sure that your body, mind, and soul are in equal condition. When the mind gets the space to find peace it provides ideas that change life.
In the beginning, it may become tough for you to continue, but with time and practice, it will become a part of your daily work. Regular exercise makes your body, mind, and soul fresh, and it also cools down your anger.
Not raising questions to the so call Rituals: Question mark (?) is always important; you should never forget that. Questions bring answers; question gives solutions and question is the mother of inventions.
Never blindly believe in the stereotype social rules instead make sure that these are effective or not?. Find ways through which you can make that situation better. Blind beliefs kill creative ideas.
Although; I have to mention that disbelieve doesn’t mean that everything will be bad, there will be some rituals those will be good for human beings, respect that.
Not taking Advice or respecting others: This is the problem that most unsuccessful people do; they don’t take advice or even comply with the individual who is leading in their respective industries. They thought that they know all about the field, and they can make massive changes to it. However, at the end of the day, this type of dream turns into nightmares.
Experience always counts in every field of life, if you are new to somewhere respect the competitors; respect your seniors and try to learn new tricks from them; make your basic steps healthy first.
Creating a monopoly is possible only if you know how to work with teams’ arrogance cannot do that; humbleness, gentle nature will always win.
