10 THINGS YOU NEED TO STOP DOING TODAY TO BE HAPPIER
SPIRITUALITY & MOTIVATION / LIFESTYLE ⎯⎯⎯ 26 SEPTEMBER 2016
We tend to be unconscious of behaviors that are causing pain and unnecessary suffering in our lives. If we could just become more conscious of behaviors that are leading to the pain in our lives, we would be a lot happier. Today we can start giving up some of the things in our life that are causing this conflict.
Don’t find fault, find a remedy; anybody can complain.
- Henry Ford
Nobody wants to be around someone who complains all the time. Yet we all do it. Instead of finding a reason to complain, look for the solution if you’re facing a problem. Look for something positive in your life. There’s always something positive to find in our life if we shift our focus.
We can never judge the lives of others, because each person knows only their own pain and renunciation. It’s one thing to feel that you are on the right path, but it’s another to think that yours is the only path. - Paulo Coelho
Stop judging other peoples lives and focus on perfecting your own life. We spend so much time gossiping rather than working on perfecting ourselves. Focus on your own life, and how you’re going to perfect it.
STOP AVOIDING YOUR FEAR
Fear is an obnoxious thing—it slows you down from finding a career you love, a romantic relationship and pursing your dreams. Do something that makes you uncomfortable every day, in small steps, and it will dramatically alter the course of your life.
STOP BEING SO HARD ON YOURSELF
When there is no enemy within, the enemies outside cannot hurt you. - African Proverb
The biggest enemy that you face is the one inside you—this enemy criticizes, condemns, and complains. Don’t let these unconscious patterns run your life.
Come to terms with these patterns. The biggest enemy you ever have to face is the one inside of you.
STOP BEING NEGATIVE
Misery loves company. - Anonymous
If you focus on being negative it’s going to show up everywhere in your life. It will show up in your work, relations and everything else. Shift your focus away from being so negative all the time. Find things that make you come alive!
STOP CARING ABOUT WHAT
OTHER PEOPLE THINK OF YOU
Care about what other people think and you will always be their prisoner. - Lao Tzu
Every great artist, musician, political leader, ignored what people thought of them. Other people’s opinions of you are none of your business. What people think of you should not drown out your own inner voice and inspirations.
STOP WORRYING ABOUT
THE SMALL STUFF
When I look back on all these worries, I remember the story of the old man who said on his deathbed that he had had a lot of trouble in his life, most of which had never happened. - Winston Churchill
Think about all the unnecessary worries that go through your mind all day. We worry about why someone is not returning our emails, texts, phone calls. We worry about everything and anything.
