Ask for approval

Having an innovative life doesn’t mean that you have to prove yourself to the jury to be hailed as the victor. Basing your life by critics and opinionated folks paralyzes your ability to dream higher because it changes your perspective regarding yourself. Remember that they can’t file a case unless you are guilty. Be dauntless in making your own decisions and fear not to lose their validation.

Aim to be right all the time

Satisfying your ego affects you negatively as it murders your sense of curiosity. Also, it shuts down the door for upcoming possibilities and alternatives.

Try to impress others

Nobody knows you better than yourself, stereotypes and other entertainment gossipers are all about speculations. They can’t hurt you unless you let them have power over you.

It is a pointless goal to please everyone around you, and is a waste of your effort and time. If you fail on a certain task, accept your defeat because with failure comes success. Life is not a tracking field, you aren’t oblige to overrun anyone. Calm down, you will get to your destination in time.

Blame other people

If you omit the bad habit of pointing fingers, it will help you become more resilient. Instead of making excuses for yourself, think of solutions to your current issue as it will help boost your maturity and confidence as a person.

Dwell in the past

Repression is a deadly strategy which kills the ability of the person to be happy. Living in the previous chapters of your life destructs the possibility of having a brighter future. However, pain is inescapable. You can’t run nor hide from it, you can only accept it.
Give yourself some room to breath and grow. Allow yourself to feel the heartache of the process, let it all flow naturally and pain itself will soon be gone.

Resist change

Change is a constant thing that test your technical ability to solve problems. Think of it as an opportunity to challenge yourself rather than a misery that should be left alone.


Have you ever notice your behavior when something meets your disapproval? You aren’t friendly nor happy, right?

Your reaction to a certain situation reflects your inner-self, your insecurities as well as flaws. Desiring for perfection only makes things worst without you noticing it.

Talk negatively to yourself

Underestimating yourself does more harm to you than physical pain because words are mightier than a sword. What you say to yourself constantly will be stored into your program. The more you speak badly about yourself, the more chances for it to come true.

Cling to material things

Understand that there is nothing permanent in this world, nothing you accomplish or own will be yours forever. The mansion you are living on, the luxurious cars you drive, the fancy clothes and jewelries you wear are worthless when it comes to seeking true happiness.

Undeniably, money and materials stimulates temporary happiness however, it does not assure permanent results. The more you cling to them, the more you will get hurt. The moment you realize it, only then will you live happier and healthier.

Forget to be grateful

Smile everyday and pray for your blessings. Each sunrise is a gift bestowed from above for its another ticket that will help you surpass all the miseries you currently have. Thank God for all the small things, with a grateful hearts comes a happier you.
