What keeps you unhappy… stuck… what stops you from living a happy life… what makes you disappointed…. What makes you stressed……?

Do you have any answers… well! I have one…

Bad Habits! Bad habits are the only negative point of your life which keeps you stuck and clueless. So, I again have a question from you…. What is the right time to eliminate bad habits from your life?

The answer is there is no perfect or right time! Whenever you find yourself in a bad habit loop, you can eliminate it from your life easily. Follow the 21-90 rules. So, the 21-90 rule states that it takes 21 days to make a habit and 90 days to make a lifestyle.

I know it is tough but never forget that the objective is a positive life.

Through this blog, I am highlighting 5 common habits that you need to completely eliminate from your life to live a happy positive life.

Bad Habits you need to avoid to live a Positive Life

1. Living a middling life

It is high time to step out of your comfort zone and remember that the biggest pleasures are obtained when we put ourselves at some degree of risk. Hard work is the only key. Step out of your comfort zone and chase your dreams and aspirations. It will help you reach your goals.

Because it is rightly quoted by Albert Einstein:

“Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds.”

2. Postponing your objective of life

Procrastination will not let you reach the goals of your life. Procrastination is the only external obstacle that needs to be completely eliminated from life.

Therefore, start working towards your goals from today onwards.  Take that first step!

Never stop, just keep on working towards your dream. It’s never too late. Remember consistent efforts are the only key to success and positive life.

Because Seth Godwin once said:

“Our job is obvious: we need to get out of the way, shine a light, and empower a new generation to teach it and go further and faster than any generation ever has.”

3. Running from your issues

Stop running from your issues and problems instead start chasing the right process. Stop looking back; stop looking in the past, stop seeking the negative sides!

Try to find a positive aspect in every negative situation! And see how effectively it looks!

The day you find positivity in the negative is the day from when your actual success starts.

As I recently read a quote by Brandon Smith:

Never look back at your past, everything happens for a reason, keep your head up and look forward, the more you look back the more beautiful thing you will miss in life.”

4. Self-sabotaging

What is that pattern which disrupts your success, growth or happiness? And what are you doing to eliminate this habit from your life? It is known as self-sabotaging.

Find that pattern and immediately say goodbye to that pattern. Because we have to live in a positive life and sabotage patterns have to leave!

An anonymous person rightly quoted:

Self-sabotage is like a game of mental tug-of-war. It is the conscious mind versus the subconscious mind where the subconscious mind always eventually wins.”


5. Blaming others

Accusing others or blaming others has never given anything in return. The way to live a healthy positive life is to be always accountable for your actions and deeds. If you have a habit of blaming others in negative situations, just stop doing this.

“Stop blaming others for your troubles. The extent to which you can achieve your dreams depends on the extent to which you take responsibility for your life. When you blame others for what you’re going through, you deny responsibility; you give others power over that part of your life.”
