Things You Can Control For A Better Life

Life is a thin line between a sketch of waves and a straight-line. That's what the electromagnetic machine and its companion computer monitor indicates. If life is that lackadaisical why are we wasting it interweaving ourselves in unnecessary things?

At times life seems to be congruous, a concordant blend of bliss and felicity and at other times it's just outrageously wicked. The rollercoaster pattern of life is a fact as at times it astounds us with a sudden feeling of surprise and stupefaction at times or strikes us nefariously, without a warning.

Sometimes things do not work according to our plans and knowingly or unknowingly we turn our wheels in the wrong way. But does that mean our journey is over?

Absolutely not.

I mean look at you, you are still sitting on the driver's seat holding the stirring of your wheel, you can still turn wheels in a different direction.

Then what is holding you back to perform?

These are a few negative traits that are holding us back for a brighter future.


Laziness is like a curse. It will kill you in your own comfort zone. Sitting ideally, doing nothing just because you're not getting enough motivation to do it is a sign of laziness.

If you are suffering from laziness, you should start searching the root cause and work on it accordingly.

Skipping the tasks with an excuse is a part of laziness. This can hold you back from achieving your goals.


We all know how destructive anger can prevail.

When you are under the dominance of a grotesque you can't able to do anything constructive.

You can't able to make the proper decisions, can't able to do proper planning as your mind is not in a stable condition.

The boiling lava of the volcano that has erupted inside you is too difficult to handle once it spreads, so extinguish the fire before it gets the wind.

Anger pushes people away, and closes our minds – we stop listening to other people’s ideas, we become trapped and alone.


Procrastination gives birth to stress.

Stress and anxiety reduce your performance.

These are all silent thieves who are highly capable of stealing your precious time on your face and you stand like a standstill mannequin without knowing that time had already slipped from your hands that you can use for productive work.

Better to stop wandering in the future and focus on the present.


Being envious of others hampers our own growth rate. It's a complete wastage of time. Burning your heart for someone else's growth is nothing but killing yourself in the lava of your own volcano.

Individuals with extreme levels of insecurity, those who cannot remain stable while seeing others succeed will fail.

So show jealousy a red signal before it takes control of your thoughts.


It's a trap that is knitted by your own mind. Fear of failure, fear of humiliation, fear of trying something foreign, never permits us to explore new things in life which in turn declines our growth chart.


Narcissists are attention seekers, they are always in search of recognition. They need special treatment, love to dominate, and control. This personality trait will never allow an individual to grow.


The ego is one such invisible enemy which may not be visible to you but can be easily recognized by others. If you allow it to take over your life, it will make you feel like you are the supreme of everything and seizes your thought process. Ego has the power to make us see things differently than they actually are hence shut the mind to think in a constructive way.


In order to catch a golden goose, you need to work on these personality disorders. The major challenge is to identify the hidden monster inside you. Once you kill these disorders you will definitely succeed to achieve your goals.

      This is a wonderful article. IT'S NECESSARY TO IDENTIFY THE MONSTERS INSIDE BEFORE WE CAN GET RID OF THEM. Once identified, it becomes easy to get them out and replace it with something positive.

      Another good article Suchi. Keep writing and inspiring.

      Hi Suchi! Once again a very thoughtful provoking article from your stable. I enjoyed your description of each of the thieves. Life is so simple and yet we so complicate it with these unnecessary emotions. Very well explained. Thank you for the wake-up call.

      Whether it's the laziness, procrastination of ourselves at every stage, or anger, we should never let ourselves be controlled by the fears and negative thoughts. Life is an astounding cycle in humans that can only be enjoyed through positivity and the right mindset. So, why waste our energy and feelings about these things?

      Very well-written, and presented article from you, Ms. Suchismita. I can't wait to read your next interesting article.

      I like this and took some reminder notes. Certain things make me angry. But as I review, that anger does me no good.

      This is an interesting and lovely article emphasizing on the things that we can control to lead a happy life and become a successful person.

      Identifying the things that holding us back and not allowing us to lead a happy and fulfilling life and then working on the obstacles enable us to overcome all the obstacles and reach our goal.
