1.Not living in the moment. Always wishing you were somewhere else, doing
something different with other people.
2.Blaming your problems on your past. Although the past affects us, it need not define
us. We can choose, decide and act – and take control of our lives. Don’t let
your past heartache and pain affect who you become.
3.Running away from problems. It’s pointless to bury your head in the sand and
pretend that things are fine when you’re dealing with a problem. Face reality,
take action and work to turn things round.
4.Letting your expectations rule your life. Life rarely goes smoothly and according to plan –
and people disappoint us and let us down. Accepting this is normal takes some
tension out of life.
5.Disrespecting yourself and others. Every single person deserves respect, and every
single person is fighting their own battle. So focus on being kind,
understanding and forgiving.
6.Never taking risks. If you always play it safe, you’ll find you end up
going nowhere. You must be ready and willing to take risks. If you don’t, you
may regret it as you’ll miss so much in life.
