1. Trying to please everyone

The first habit that you have to quit is trying to please everyone. Don’t care about unnecessary comments from others. Don’t worry about what people talk about you and don’t try to please everyone. It is not possible for you to please everyone. Remember, the five fingers on your hand are not equal. The mindset of people is not equal and hence you can’t please everyone. Don’t expect everyone will appreciate and praise your work. Some people will give good comments and others will give bad comments. No one is 100% perfect. Don’t give space in your mind for bad comments, just leave them, and continue with what you have to do.

You can’t please everyone and hence what can you do? The best policy is to self listen, listen to your heart, do according to what your mind is speaking. Don’t take everyone’s comments and don’t try to please everyone. This is the first habit you have to quit. Live for yourself and not live for others. This doesn’t mean that you should not help others. You must help others because helping others will brighten your life. Don’t be selfish, but help others in whatever way is possible for you. Ignore baseless comments which are negative otherwise that will affect your mind. Give your weakness to one who helps.

3. Living in the past

The third habit is living in the past. Many people are talking about the past, wasting their precious time on negative thoughts about past incidents that make their mind stressed. They speak to their mind or speak to others like, “I couldn’t have done like this, things were not good in those days” etc. They live in the past instead of living in the present. They fill their mind with negativity about past failures instead of trying to turn failures into success. Quit the habit of living in the past, forget anything wrong happened in the past, and live in the present. Set effective goals and focus on the goal to achieve success. Focus on the present and plan for the future. The best way to handle life is to live in the present and ignore the past.

4. Putting yourself down

The fourth habit is putting yourself down. Never put yourself down. Life is miserable. It is not necessary that you always do everything perfect and successful. Sometimes you make mistakes that don’t mean that you are not capable. Failures are part of the life journey. You should accept your failures, accept your mistakes, ask any kind of apologies to anyone. Forget about that mistakes and failures and don’t put yourself down.

Face challenges fearless of failures, learn to overcome obstacles. Boost self-confidence and learn to overcome self-doubt. Remember, all successful people have faced many challenges and overcame obstacles in their life. Never stop believing in yourself even for a second.

5. Overthinking

The last habit is overthinking. Many people have an overthinking problem even about silly problems which create a stressful mind. Avoid overthinking unnecessarily. Make your mind free of negative thoughts, give strength to the mind which automatically makes difference in your life. This doesn’t mean to stop thinking, because that also may be a problem. You can think and plan what to do, how to do it, but don’t overthink giving stress in mind. Close your eyes for a few minutes, think and imagine in your mind about whatever action you want to take, analyse your problems, find solutions, and take decisions. But don’t waste your time in overthinking which gives a lot of stress and pain in mind.


This is not a complete list of habits that you have to quit for happiness and success in your life. These are only a few habits that can help you with a successful life.
