1. Being Envious Of Everyone Else
Don’t let envy get the best of you. There is nothing attractive about it. Stop comparing your journey with everyone else’s. If you want to measure your progress, compare yourself to who you were yesterday.

2. Taking Everything Too Personally
What people say and do to you is much more about them, than you. Whether people think you’re amazing, or believe you’re the worst, is more about them. This doesn’t mean you ignore it all, but you shouldn’t take things personally. Let go of other people’s good or bad opinion of you.

3. Acting Like You’re Always a Victim
Believing you’re a victim, that you have no power to exert and no power over the direction of your life, is a toxic stance that keeps you stuck. Stop complaining. Refuse to see yourself as a helpless victim. You’ll ultimately find that you are more powerful than you realized.

4. Hoarding Pain And Loss
One of the hardest lessons in life is letting go. Change is never easy. But a lot of times letting go is the healthiest path forward. You have to emotionally free yourself from the things that once meant a lot to you, so you can move beyond the past and the pain it brings you.

5. Obsessive Negative Thinking
It’s very hard to be around people who refuse to let go of negativity. Such people stubbornly refuse to see the positive side of life. Only seeing the negative is a twisted way of thinking and living, and you can change that.

If you find that you’re overly emotional, losing your cool at every turn, you may need some outside assistance to help you gain control over your emotions.

7. Making Superficial Judgements About Others
Don’t always judge a person by what they show you. When a person tries to make you suffer in some small way, it is usually because they suffer deep within themselves. They do not need punishment or ridicule, they need help.

8. Lacking Empathy And Compassion
Cruelty stems from a total lack of empathy, concern or compassion for others. We see it every day online. People being mean, unkind and hurtful to others just because they can. Dig deep and find compassion in your heart, and realize that we’re all in this together. Stop hurting others and yourself.
[vs slide=”9″ slide_title=”Cheating Simply Because You Can”]
9. Cheating Simply Because You Can
Cheating is a choice. If you decide to cheat, and you succeed in cheating someone out of something, don’t think that this person is a fool. Don’t do immoral things simply because you can. Be honest with yourself and everyone else. Integrity is the essence of everything successful.

10. Hiding Your Truth
No one can connect with you if you’re constantly trying to hide from yourself. You think you’re weird? So what? You’re a beautiful being. If you find yourself feeling like a fish out of water, by all means find a new river to swim in. But never change who you are. Don’t deny yourself, improve yourself.
