23 Dec Don’t let these bad habits ruin your happiness!
via LifeHack by Rose Hastas
We all want to be happy at least most of the time, but, unfortunately, that’s not the case, and we end up searching aimlessly to find happiness, and it always seem to eludes us.
We are all creatures of habit, and often we get stuck in a rut because we refuse to make the necessary changes to our lives that will bring us the happiness we yearn for.
Not all our habits are bad, but sometimes we need to look at the things we do continuously and decide whether we need to make some adjustments if they don’t yield the results we need.
Unfortunately, as humans beings we tend not to want to change, and so we fight tooth and nail not to do this.
We suffer the same headaches and frustration time and time again and never do anything about the issues that are causing us such unhappiness.
Remember if you continuously do the same things over and over again not only will you get the same results but you will become the things you do.
So, if those habits aren’t helping you they are hurting you, and you need to change now to avoid being the same way for a very long time.
Some of the many reasons you are unhappy are that you:
Hold on to what you know and refuse to budge
Life is about living and learning. When you stop learning, you stop growing and thriving; hence you won’t be living a fulfilled life. You have to be prepared to venture out of your comfort zone into unfamiliar territory to truly grow and become who you were meant to be.
You need to be challenged and tested because only when you face challenges will you grow and become better. Remaining in one position will only keep you stuck. Being stagnant is not progressing.
Find ways to challenge yourself and do not be afraid of being pushed. Push back when pushed but do not accept the normal as progress. You must hold fast to your core values while you search for your purpose in life.
Keep resisting life and its changes
There is nothing more painful than when you try to resist life and the changes it brings. Change is never without pain and discomfort. There is nothing more painful than remaining where you are for the rest of your life.
Whether you want to change or not you are in fact changing every day. Look back at your life and see the many changes that have taken place, some positive and others negative. That is life, and you must accept it and work with it as it comes instead of fighting to remain stuck.
Allowing other people to decide what is possible for you
Close your ears to all the discouragement and negativity from people who do not know or care about the real you. You know yourself, and the plans you have for your life so do not allow them to use words to discourage you.
Most of the time they are only telling you what they think and want for themselves so close your ears and forge ahead. Choose to do things your way and if you mess up, you’ll know at least that you did it your way…
