1. I focus on everyone’s story that I forget to write my own

‘Wow, that person has done so much and achieved so much! I wish I could do the same.’ Tell me who has stopped you from giving wings to your success story? Why are you weighing yourself down with the burden of things, people and most importantly time? Keep your goals so close to your heart that you just can’t keep yourself off from them even for a minute. Dedicate your time wisely to keep your success story going instead of just feeling sorry for yourself on what you couldn’t achieve. The point is, if you work diligently to achieve something, there is nothing in the world that can keep you away from accomplishing it.

2. I meet the same people and do the same things every day

We live a monotonous life that revolves around the same set of people, work, TV shows and even magazines. Have you ever thought what influences are these things bringing on your life? Are these things dragging you down or lifting up your spirit?

Just take a few minutes out of your schedule and think on this platform; this can indeed bring back the doze of happiness.

3. I just can’t accept any change in my life

‘Change is the only thing that is constant.’ Why you resist the change and the changes that the change brings? Indeed, the change does not come without any discomfort or pain, but is it right to remain on the same platform for the rest of the life? Even the day change, the season change, the calendar change; so why you can’t go with the change? Life is full of changes; some are positive while some are negative and thatslyf! Learn to accept the change instead of fighting to remain where you are.

4. Hold on to feelings, fears and worries

Feelings of hatred, worries and fears are something that each one of us hold for long and keep inside us. Keeping such feelings inside us, eventually starts controlling our lives and at the end of the day we forget to whom such feelings were ejected; all we remember is that we hate or we have a worry or a fear. Don’t let these feelings take a permanent space in your mind and heart and slowly eat you up. Let go of the feelings, the things and the people that bring such feelings to you. Learn to move on in life and look at the bigger picture.

5. I will become happy when the perfect moment will come

6. Money is Honey

A lot many of us are working for nothing more than a worthy paycheck. Working without having an interest in the work is nothing less than a prison. By interest, I don’t expect you to be passionate about your work; but a little interest must be there to keep the ball rolling. When your life is designed with a job that doesn’t interest you; you suffer every day and every moment of it. Don’t work just to pay the monthly bills. This way you will spend the rest of your life wishing about the road not taken. Think, the work comprises of a big percentage of your life. Ignore the people and the money. Don’t go for the work that will define you. Having an interest in the work will not only bring a quality output but happiness and peace of mind. Life is more than a paycheck!


Believe me, readers, it’s not the people, the things or the situations that make you unhappy. You yourself is making yourself unhappy! You don’t require to go miles to make yourself happy; it’s all within you. Just a little change in the way of thinking and perceiving things can bring a lot of difference and turn your unhappy self into a happy one. It’s quite easy to be happy and remain happy.
