"10 Habits That Can Ruin Your Life"

| Thread
1. Procrastinating

Procrastination is the thief of time, collar him.

You can also set a timer on your phone for 15 minutes and commit to doing your task until it goes off, usually just starting will give you momentum and you’ll be likely to continue for longer.
2. Comparison

Comparison can truly ruin your life. Even when you experience positive things, the victories will be hollow.

There will always be other people with “better” circumstances than you.

Remind yourself that we are all human. No one is perfect.
3. Thinking Instead of Doing

Do u spend more time thinking about doing a task than it would actually take to just do it?

If there is something you’ve been needing to do for a while do it today or schedule it in your calendar right now & stop wasting your mental energy on it.
4. Caring About What Other Ppl Think

If you have the habit of obsessing over what other people think of u, I have good news for u:

No one is spending their time thinking about u.

Ppl are so wrapped up in their own lives, they don’t have the time to put much thought into yours
When you base your actions around what other people think you give away your power.

Once you digest this truth you’re gonna feel so much freer.
5. Focusing on the past or the future.

Dwelling on the past usually means unresolved issues are weighing you down.

Focusing entirely on the future usually means that you have anxiety about what is to come and your ability to handle it.
Those who stay focused on the present are happier.

Practice mindfulness by focusing your consciousness on the present moment.
6. Perfectionism

Trying to be perfect is a waste of time and energy.

No one even has the same definition of perfect, so you could be your most perfect self and there would still be people in the world who think that you are lacking.
Instead of trying to be perfect focus on just doing your best. That’s literally all that you can do.

Tell yourself, “I’m doing the best I can at this moment, and I only fail when I don’t try.”
7. Trying to Multitask

Ppl who multitask are actually less productive than ppl who focus on one task at a time.

Next time you have multiple tasks to do, focus on completing one before moving on to the next.

When you break that bad habit the quality of your work will improve.
8. Wasting Money on Stuff

Ads and influencers tell us ‘just buy THIS and you’ll be happy.’

But we all know that having this or that doesn’t cause lasting happiness.

So perhaps we need to change our mindset. Be honest will having that item improve ur life in a significant way?
Additionally, when you see something you want to buy think about the resources that were used and the future waste it will create when you throw it away.
9. Blaming Instead of Taking Responsibility

It’s tempting to blame other ppl for our circumstances.

You can choose to appreciate your health & home instead of resenting ppl who have more.

You can choose to keep moving forward instead of giving up.
Taking responsibility means taking back your power.
10. Telling Yourself You’re ‘Stuck’

Yes sometimes we run into roadblocks but there is almost always a way around them.

When you don’t see a path forward you just have to look at things a different way.
It’s all about your mindset.

Are you going to be the victim of circumstance or take charge and be empowered?
Do you need more discipline in your life?

Live Intentionally is a 90 Day Self-Improvement Project that will change your habits, daily routine, mindset, and make you strong and disciplined.

"The 10 Habits of Highly Effective People"

| Thread
1. They Take Action:

It is important to organize, plan, & set priorities, but without action, a plan is nothing more than potential.

Successful people act – quickly and often. In addition, although it may sound counterintuitive, they act (start, anyway) before they feel ready.
2. They don’t wait for anyone else to motivate them:

True motivated is self-motivation.

Although a little encouragement from others can help, it really is all down to the individual.

Motivated people find success without looking to others for encouragement or push.
