27 THINGS WHICH WILL INCREASE THE PROBABILITY OF SUCCESS IN YOUR LIFE!!!

Principles-of-Success1-300x209

Unless you are a celebrity or the object of some human’s jealousy you will find that most humans don’t really care that much whether you got a new car or promotion. You really shouldn’t let other’s opinions of you guide your behavior, especially if they are lavishing attention on you hoping to get some benefit out of you. We all like to be praised by others but what is most important is how we feel about our situation in life personally and how competent we are in what we are doing.

Family, close friends, and humans in general who really care about you are far more interested in your personality and the quality of the human interaction rather than your accomplishments and possessions.

Arranging your life primarily in the pursuit of money will not make you happy in the long duration because how successfully you spend your time, energy, and money on other humans will really determine your state of happiness in the long duration. Paying attention to the quality of your life experiences and not just a quantity of money is the true source of happiness without any regrets in old age for being too myopically focused on wealth and not having lived a full balanced life.

Avoid debt as much as possible because debt incurred by profligate spending and investing in a job poor largely useless education in young adulthood will become a terrible financial burden for the rest of your adult life. Of course you can declare bankruptcy and live much of your life with a debit card existence.

Learn how to be more persuasive and learn how to acquire emotional intelligence which will be a great advantage when trying to influence other humans. You will learn how to communicate and change other human minds, instill confidence in others, and sooth their fears. This means being a powerful communicator and the potential to become a human leader in any profession if you also have a good memory for names.

Have integrity, be dependable and competent which means being moral and responsible for your own actions and consequences while treating others with as much respect as they deserve and helping those in need where appropriate. Guard your integrity jealously because trust and respect from others is impossible without it.

Prepare for the unexpected or have a plan B in mind if chaos breaks out. An emergency financial savings is the safety net when loss of a job, loss of spouse, or business failure surfaces to cause chaotic turmoil.

In business success means outperforming or being better than your competitors. If you are at the top then competing with yourself or becoming better at what you are doing is the key to remaining at the top.

Selfawareness or knowing yourself and realizing that others view you the same way is a big advantage when interacting and working with others.

Personal biases or personal opinions and beliefs affect the way that you view the world so it is important to understand that any decision which you make will be dependent on them to a large extent. When confronted with failure it is time to reflect and possibly modify or change those opinions and beliefs to ones that will mean success in future attempts at goal achievement.

Accept that the past can’t be changed. Live in the present courageously making plans for a better future yet to come.

Humans and ideas much different than your own are the source for creativity and possible enrichment of your life. You will learn more and potentially grow faster in your understanding of possibilities yet to be achieved.

Travel more or surf the internet visiting other places and cultures. New perspectives on business and life will refresh you and reveal new possibilities to take advantage of.

The truly successful have a passion for what they are doing and do it well so if you haven’t found anything to be passionate about then keep looking or take risks to find out what that might be.

An impulsive reaction influenced by anger or panic can ruin a lifetime of work in a relatively short duration so don’t let your emotions get the best of you when making important decisions.

Holding grudges consumes much time and energy holding on to hatred so try to forgive a stranger or family member if they have not been immoral.

Recognize that there is much that you don’t know. If you find someone more knowledgeable then try to delegate the relevant task. If you are confronted with a discussion where you lack sufficient knowledge then resist the urge to jump in and contribute and being foolish in the process.

If you are competent and believe in yourself the confidence will encourage others to believe what you say.

Everyone has a fear of failing but the successful ones overcome the fearful anxiety and move forward with action and don’t let fear restrain them that often.

It is good to have good role models or heroes whom you are trying to imitate or learn from. Not all the knowledge that you acquire will be useful in a rapidly changing technological era. Some new useful creativity will be your responsibility to discover and apply to new ever changing circumstances.

Avoiding crippling addictive bad habits like gambling, alcohol, drugs, promiscuity, pornography, and impulsive shopping will optimize your ability to function most effectively and efficiently at work and home.

Take care of your health by eating organic and getting enough exercise and sleep. Nothing will short circuit a successful career faster than failing health in your vital years.

Nothing is perfectly predictable and the good guys don’t always win in the real world. This sometimes means being content or grateful for what you have  so far rather than what you hope to have which doesn’t seem to be materializing for you.

Your happy optimistic attitude starts out as a conscious desire which soon becomes a good habit or the happy optimistic attitude unrelentingly repeats itself in your life as you live it.

You need to be honest with yourself and know your weaknesses as well as your strengths. Knowing your weaknesses you can either try to strengthen them with new knowledge and skills or you can hire humans who are not weak in your area to work for you if it is a business.

An opportunity may arise suddenly and it may seem like unexpected luck. Talent, the right useful education, and hard work is essential which qualifies you for an opportunity when it comes along even though sometimes there may be a desire to give up prematurely because no breaks or good fortune seem to be coming your way.

When you become very successful try to give back by supporting truly worthwhile causes such as wilderness conservation and restoration, sustainable research, and basic medical and biological research. You will be promoting the possibility of a better life for future generations.

6 IMPORTANT SOURCES OF UNHAPPINESS AND WHAT TO DO ABOUT THEM!!!

1-62631-stop_bad_habits

COMPARING YOURSELF TO OTHERS:

Some humans compare themselves to others with more money or higher status in society and feel envious, less worthy, or frustrated by the comparison and it can be the source for some unhappiness. Compare yourself to the destitute and unemployed or the severely handicapped and you should automatically feel grateful or thankful that you are better off than them. If a comparison motivates you to work for a better job and more socially connected friends then that is a positive result but if you just wallow in frustrated envy and do nothing then the comparison will just be a source of ongoing unhappiness so stop comparing yourself.

WORRYING ABOUT THE FUTURE:

Some humans worry too much about what things can go wrong in the future and live with too much fear about a bad future. Taking out life insurance, health insurance, and property insurance should protect you against most disasters to some extent. Saving up about 10% of your earnings for emergencies is about all that you can do realistically to protect yourself from minor financial setbacks. Eat healthy and get plenty of exercise and sleep and you will feel as secure about your future as is realistically possible in this somewhat unpredictable world. If you can’t afford insurance then live a courageous healthy lifestyle and feel secure that government welfare will be your safety net if the shit hits the fan.

HOLDING ON TO ANGER AND RESENTMENT:

Holding on to anger and resentment for too long can also be a source for much unhappiness. Learn to forgive and forget the occasional mistakes, insults, put downs, name calling, ridicule, and bad behavior of others and conditionally forgive immoral behavior if you get a sincere promise that it will never happen again. If the source of your anger and resentment is a very bad family life and you can’t solve the problems by compromise and cooperation then you may have to consider divorce as the only possible alternative out of your dysfunctional marriage.

REPEATING THE SAME MISTAKES:

Repeating the same mistakes over and over again can lead to much unhappiness. Getting involved with bad humans or friends over and over again or falling for dysfunctional potential mates over and over again or going from one shitty job to another shitty one over and over again are repeated mistakes which are definitely a source for ongoing unhappiness and stress. You may have a bad personality which attracts other bad humans so it is up to you to reform yourself by acquiring new useful knowledge and skills and then choosing better friends, better mates, and better jobs.

LIVING IN THE PAST TOO MUCH:

Living in the past can be a source for unhappiness especially for older adults. A bad past life may cause you to live regretting what you did and a good past may be the source for boring humans with repetitive stories about your great past successes and thus having few if any interested friends in old age. Learn to focus on the present and future with new hobbies or interests. Volunteer to help others in greater need or surf the internet for interesting new useful material to read about and view if you are on a tight budget. If you can’t keep physically active then at least try to stay mentally active and learn about new interesting things. Stop dreaming about the past and do something active mentally and/or physically in the real world and in the relatively few remaining years which you have left in life.

 

BEING ADDICTED TO ONE SEVERE OR TOO MANY BAD HABITS:

Being addicted to too many bad habits can also be the source for much unhappiness. Lying, TOO MUCH complaining, criticizing, bragging, jealousy, procrastination, blaming, pessimism, gossiping, arguing, gambling, drugs, alcohol, pornography, shopping, etc. are all bad habits which if done to excess can cause terrible consequences and can be the source for much unhappiness in your life. I have listed about 32 bad habits and what you can do about them in three blogs which I published and you can refer to them for further enlightenment. Remember, if you don’t know what your bad habit is then you can’t correct it. Enjoy!!!

THE TRUTH ABOUT SUBCONSCIOUSNESS+

conscious-subconscious

Subconsiousness: n. unconscious impulsive brain activity while awake which influences our behavior to a large degree, especially good and/or bad habits

 

Despite popular myth that the conscious mind determines most of what we do in life the truth is that the subconscious rules supreme and makes impulsive choices based on prior experiences in our daily lives which are really our good and bad habits repeating themselves over and over again.

Very little conscious decision making is part of the lives of most humans and most of us behave on the subconscious level unless there is a crisis or severe emotional experience which changes our subconscious behavior for good or bad.

To use a bad analogy, our conscious behavior is the iceberg which we theoretically see or can control and the huge subconscious is the iceberg below the water level which we theoretically can’t see or can’t control which is the major part of our behavior and decision making process.

THE TRUTH ABOUT PROGRESS+

images (1)

Progress: n. improvement and/or growth and/or development which is a successful movement(s) towards a goal(s)

Are you making any progress? You may be half way there on your goal to reach a physical destination or half way through medical school. In either a simple or complicated goal you can usually assess how far you are in reaching it or how much progress you are making towards it.

Sometimes no matter how hard you try you may not be able to reach a goal such as getting a job promotion but usually by making adjustments or gaining more knowledge or skills you can generally reach the goal unless it is a totally unrealistic one and depends on you having some basic talent which you lack.

Not everyone wants to progress in life, especially if they are happy with what they have but many humans have a desire to improve or experience new adventures and call it progress. We all progress towards eventual death so it is wise to ask yourself from time to time-Am I happy with the progress which I am making or should I make some minor or major adjustments in my progress?

Sometimes making progress is simply a matter of eliminating bad habits or replacing them with good habits. Stop eating unhealthy food, stop smoking, stop bad relationships, and quit a bad job. Put in positive terms this may mean eating more organic food, replacing smoking with healthy snacks, refreshments, or meditation, finding better friends or a new significant other, and landing a better job.

Sometimes progress means eliminating barriers or working around them. Your barriers may be an inadequate education, a bad personality, few useful skills, or humans in positions which you would want to be in. You can improve on your personal barriers or eliminate them to some extent but if human barriers are your problem then you may not be able to eliminate them or work around them.

Other humans can greatly impede your progress and if you can’t avoid them or drop them for better ones then you may have to deal with them until they leave or go elsewhere. Who you know is sometimes more important than what you know so try to get to know better humans with good contacts who can potentially help you in the future.

There are short duration goals and long duration goals and the smart humans try to make progress in both by spending some time working on a daily or regular basis focusing on long duration goals too. Not many want to seriously work on long duration goals but if you do then you will probably be one who will have some genuine true successes in their lives which will make the journey of life even more satisfying.

Live for today only and you may be derailed from your path abruptly one day and be at a loss of what to do next. Live for today and tomorrow and you will still have a destination to go to if you get derailed from your current normal path in life.

The key to making real progress in life is to live life in the present but to make some future plans or putting in some current effort for future goal achievement.

Just moving forward is making progress but HOW you move forward or progress is a very important question which you should try answering yourself since there are so many ways of doing so.

THE TRUTH ABOUT ADDICTIONS+

Cycle-of-Addiction1

Addiction: n. compulsively desiring a subset(s)

We are all addicted to good and bad habits and grey ones which are good or bad depending on the circumstances.

Human nature is basically doing things impulsively or habitually in a predictable routine way because we don’t have to always stop ourselves and ask- is what I am doing right or wrong?

Doing something bad once in a while will usually not doom you to a life of debauchery or ruin an otherwise good reputation and you may even get some satisfaction out of doing so.  A little speeding on the highway, occasional arguing, occasional criticizing, some jealousy, a little pornography, a little gambling, and getting drunk once in a while will usually not adversely affect your life unless it becomes a compulsion or it is repeated much too frequently.

Compulsive eating, drinking, drug taking, gambling, pornography, lust, masturbation, arguing,  complaining, criticizing, jealousy, envy, abuse, talking, depression, laziness, procrastination, etc. can lead to severe problems in life and it is basically your responsibility to realize that what you are doing is getting out of control and causing you much unhappiness.

Chemical addictions can be devastating but many of your dysfunctional emotional addictions or personality flaws can also cause many problems and ultimate unhappiness.

If you can afford the time and money then rehab may be a solution to your drug addiction and it always helps to have supportive friends and family. If you have bad friends and bad family then unfortunately a near death experience may be the fear which shocks you into finally doing something about your terrible addiction on your own.

After rehab the worst thing that you can possibly do is to go back to the same environment and addicted friends who will trigger your need for the drug all over again and cause you to relapse. Change your living quarters and drop your addicted friends and try to find better ones if at all possible if you truly want a fresh new start in life.

Most bad addictions are not life threatening and the key to reducing their bad influence on your life is to gradually replace them with good addictions or good habits which you enjoy doing. Search my blog under bad habits and good habits because the first key to solving an addiction is to realize that you have a bad habit and the next step is to start replacing it with one or more good habits which you enjoy doing.

Addictions to immorality are the worst. If you are addicted to lying, stealing, and adultery then your social reputation will be in the toilet and you may begin to feel that the world is against you at every turn and unhappiness will cling to you like a parasite.

Your delusional ego may be telling you that there is no need for improvement in your life. Do some reading and research and find out whether this is truly the case.

Going through life blinded by your selfish ego is not a sure way to successful living so try to make the best of your moments on this precious earth. Enjoy life to the fullest with true selfawareness gotten from wise humans who have lived life and have gone through the same shit that you are going through successfully.

40 GOOD HABITS WHICH CAN LEAD TO MORE HAPPINESS!!!

habits-for-happiness

The primary source of happiness is good habits which frequently lead to a good job and good relationships with other humans.

Actually having good habits means that you are avoiding or gradually eliminating the bad habits in your life too. Being aware of bad habits and doing something about them is important in being and remaining happy.

I have written about 32 bad habits which you should minimize or avoid and have links to them at the end of this article.

40 GOOD HABITS:

Eat healthy organic food as much as possible and drink pure water and healthy fruit and veggie juices.

Moderately exercise or move around physically about three times a week if not more.

Get enough sleep so that you wake up fresh and ready to start a new day.

Be financially responsible or budget and live within your means.

Work smart and hard.

Try to have good relationships with important humans in your life.

Be honest and sincere or don’t be a liar or deceptive human and you will attract more honest and sincere humans in your life.

Avoid or minimize contact with bad, depressed, unhappy, addicted humans as much as possible who will just add misery and problems to your life.

Forgive more unless they are immoral humans lying, deceiving, and cheating  you.

Let go of the things which you can’t control and you will have less to worry about.

Compare yourself less with others and you won’t feel as anxious and depressed.

Honestly compliment or praise others who have earned the compliment or praise.

Share your knowledge and expertise with others when needed within reason and offer the help free of charge as needed.

Take time out for friendships, especially the ones who are important in your life.

Trust your gut feelings and trust other humans at first until they prove themselves immoral and unworthy of that trust.

Keep your conversations brief and to the point or listen more and talk less.

Be kind or good towards humans as much as possible unless they don’t deserve to be treated well or are immoral liars or cheaters.

Keep your excuses to a minimum and change your behavior so that you don’t need excuses.

You don’t need to seek approval from most humans unless they are very close to you and will be affected by your decisions in a good or bad way.

Improve yourself with new useful knowledge and skills.

Meditate by thinking about nothing of importance or listening to soothing music or nature sounds or think about the things which you have accomplished or hope to accomplish and when.

View the world as an amazingly interesting place and it will be easier to maintain an optimistic attitude.

Do things which you like or love to do more often.

Try to live in the present moment more and try to enjoy every moment as much as possible.

Spend time with nature which is always inspiring, relaxing, and enjoyable.

Take out time to be with yourself and think or do things which interest only you.

Keep an inspiration file of affirmations, quotes, or fun things to do.

Express gratitude or be thankful for the things which you have even though they may not be the best of everything.

Embrace uncertainty and don’t let it worry or depress you.

Write about your feelings, beliefs, opinions, and experiences or keep a diary but try to focus on your achieved goals and things which you hope to achieve in the future.

See problems as challenges and not unpleasant tasks.

Have useful pastimes and do them in moderation.

Have an orderly and clean environment.

Schedule your time with priority given to the important things in your life.

Take time out for enjoying yourself with or without company.

Spend more time nurturing the close relationships in your life.

Spend little time gaming or watching TV.

Minimize the medicine or drugs which you are taking.

Spend little time on pornography and gambling if they are unavoidable.

Try to improve yourself or make and spend time on realistic goals which you can achieve soon or at some point in the future so you don’t lead an unfulfilled life of unachieved goals.

LIST OF 13 IMPORTANT BAD HABITS AND GOOD ONES TO REPLACE THEM WITH!!!

all-bad-habits-start-slowly-zig-ziglar

Ideally you should quit cold turkey on bad habits, especially the very bad ones, but unfortunately you are deriving some satisfaction from them and the best realistic alternative is to cut back on them or spend less time on them and to gradually replace them with good habits.

Realize that most bad habits are not a question of yes or no or of doing them or not doing them. The real understanding and truth is that you should have as little of the bad habit in your life as possible. A little of the bad habit does not necessarily have terrible bad consequences and sometimes even a moderate dose of the bad habit is perfectly understandable and acceptable.

 

BAD HABIT: Eating too much of the wrong food:

GOOD HABIT: Eat and drink only when hungry or thirsty even if this means once a day. Start gradually replacing or adding varied organic food to your meals.

If you snack during the day or after work then try snacking on nuts, seeds, fruit, vegies, and meat jerky.

Don’t be afraid to experiment with healthy foods. If you don’t like the taste or it seems tasteless then add your favorite spices, dips, or dressings. Flavorings which you like the taste of will make almost anything healthy which you eat just as satisfying as the overly processed food and fast food which you are used to eating.

If you are hooked on sweet food then try replacing it with sweet natural fruits whenever the urge for sweet food arises. Eating chocolate once in a while or any sweet treat once in a while is not a serious health offense.

 

BAD HABIT: Talking too much

GOOD HABIT: Spend less time less frequently talking to gabby humans. Talk mostly to humans who are important in your life and spend very little time on the rest.

Learn to talk briefly, concisely, and to the point and try to listen more and talk less. Don’t be afraid to interrupt a conversation which is becoming too boring or change the subject to something more interesting.

Social media is the same thing. Limit your frequent communications to humans who are important in your life and only respond to others if they have something new or interesting which they are trying to share.

 

BAD HABIT: Going into debt or impulsive and excessive shopping

GOOD HABIT: Set aside or save about 10% of your monthly income for emergencies such as car repairs, home repairs, medical emergencies, etc. so you don’t have to go into debt.

Before you buy make sure it is something you need and not just want. Ask. Can I do without it for a week or month? If the answer is yes then don’t buy it.

Make lists of things to buy and then don’t do any impulse buying but stick to the items on your list to buy.

Check the things that you have already bought to see if they will satisfy your need to buy something. You may be surprised by how much hoarded items of clothing and kitchen items you have which can be reused again.

Learn to budget your money or break it down into categories and try not to overspend in the category on a monthly basis. If you have allocated a specific money amount for entertainment per month then try not to exceed that limit.

Try to remember the unit prices of grocery food and try to comparison shop always before making up your mind to purchase an item. Try to get the best deal or best value per price paid.

For organic food price should not be an issue because tasty organic food is always the best buy. You will pay more but usually you will eat less off it and the long duration value to your good health is priceless.

 

BAD HABIT: Being stuck in a bad job

GOOD HABIT: Switch to another employer with the same job or learn new skills and knowledge necessary for a new and better job.

 

BAD HABIT: Not sleeping enough

GOOD HABIT: Plan your sleep time so you almost always get 8 or 9 hours of sleep. Prepare for sleep by winding down before sleep with sex, calming music, meditation, a boring show, or soothing shower or bubble bath.

 

BAD HABIT: Smoking too much

GOOD HABIT: Switch to e-cigarettes or smoking a pipe or cigars or don’t inhale the cigarette smoke when you do smoke. You can also try meditation or exercise each time you have an urge to smoke and remind yourself mentally how bad smoking is for your health and well being.

 

BAD HABIT: Watching TV or gaming too much

GOOD HABIT: Be selective in what you watch and only watch something which you really like. Limit your viewing or playing time to not more than about an hour a day. Instead of TV go on the internet and try learning something new and hopefully interesting and useful.

If you are addicted to one genre such as sports then try expanding your interest into other areas such as organic gardening, landscaping, wood or metal working, 3D printing, house repairs, investment, and cars and try becoming an amateur expert on the subject.

 

BAD HABIT: Drinking alcohol too much

GOOD HABIT: Drink a wide variety of beers or low alcohol content drinks  and try drinking for the taste of it and not the buzz.

 

BAD HABIT: Too many medicines or drugs

GOOD HABIT: Start eating healthy with as much organic food as possible, drink healthy with unsweetened drinks, and get some moderate exercise.

Your body will eventually try to cure itself having the right natural chemicals and movement.

Before popping a pain pill try to discover the cause. Is it is too much stress, overwork, or doing the same thing for too long? You will frequently discover what to avoid or do differently the next time and it is far better than popping an instant cure pill which doesn’t cure anything but just masks the symptoms and may even make the situation worse with bad side effects ready for more pill “cures”.

Start replacing medications with homeopathic remedies and see if they have fewer side effects which artificial drugs are notorious for.

If you are suffering from depression or other mental problems then the solution is frequently a change in lifestyle. New and better friends and not mind altering psychiatric drugs with terrible side effects which often make the situation worse. Pills almost never address the true cause of your problems which is frequently the shitty eating and drinking, and the shitty environment and lifestyle that you are living in.

 

BAD HABIT: Living in a messy environment

GOOD HABIT: Clean up regularly and put back some order in your life. It is frequently true that a messy environment leads to a messy disorganized problem filled life.

 

BAD HABIT: Associating or interacting with bad, depressed, unhappy, pessimistic, and badly addicted friends

GOOD HABIT: Start looking for and start replacing those bad friends with optimistic, happy, and smart friends but remember that you too will have to improve yourself in the process and change to more optimism, happiness, and smartness if you want to keep those new good friends in your circle of acquaintances for longer than a day.

 

BAD HABIT:  Too much pornography 

GOOD HABIT: A sexual relationship with a significant other should be your goal. Too much pornography will ruin healthy relationships with a significant other with unrealistic sexual expectations.  The good habit is a healthy real sexual relationship with a human.

 

BAD HABIT: Too much gambling

GOOD HABIT: The gambling should be for fun and not profit. Trying to make a living from gambling is only possible for some very talented clever experts with outstanding memories who know how to beat house odds and not for those that believe gambling is just a matter of good luck or being lucky with the odds heavily against you.

 

CONCLUSION:

Many of us eventually get stuck in a rut of old bad habits which lead to a rather boring hopeless depressing situation. The key to getting out of such ruts in the first place is to maintain an active curiosity and desire to learn new things and have new experiences rather regularly.

If you have an interesting life thinking about many things, experiencing them, and keeping up to date with your knowledge then you will make an interesting conversationalist with humans that you meet. You will frequently have something in common to share or talk about.

When you stop trying to improve yourself then you begin to die as a human emotionally and sometimes even physically. Expand your intellectual horizons beyond the brainwashing media and poor role model celebrities. Do research on your own and discover some interesting topics to think and talk about. Yes, you probably will need a dictionary at first to get used to the buzzwords but once you learn what they mean the rest is rather easy.

I am interested in almost everything outside of sports and religion and have an opinion or two about almost everything. I have blogged for about two years now and have never had a dull moment even though I was on the computer researching and writing sometimes as many as 12 hours a day. Yes, I have a life outside of blogging but my blogging has helped make me a wiser man in everyday life too. Sharing this lifetime of useful knowledge is one of my ongoing passions. Enjoy!

10 RELATIONSHIP BAD HABITS WITH SUGGESTIONS, PART 1 OF 3!!!

bad-relationships

Lying:

Honesty, sincerity, dependability, and loyalty is what creates trust in a relationship. Trust is the relationship glue and lying destroys a relationship and makes it a very bad one or practically no useful relationship at all.

Even white lies are unnecessary and there are tactful alternatives which maintain your honesty and continue a solid trusting relationship. Instead of lying about a dress to your spouse say it is OK but it is not your favorite color, color combination, style, pattern, size, length or is too sexy or too frilly.

Don’t lie and you won’t have to remember the lies that you told which get you into trouble sooner or latter.

 

Trying to improve him or her:

Adult personalities rarely change radically and what you see is frequently what you get and will get.

If you hate too many of a human’s characteristics then try to avoid them or try not to get too involved in the first place. Live and let live but keep your close relationships with human’s that you trust and like and don’t waste your time with what you consider bad, especially immoral humans.

An abusive, emotionally unstable, and lying human will not be rehabilitated no matter how hard you try so be realistic and avoid them.

 

Complaining or nagging too much:

There is plenty in this world to complain about but if you can’t change or control the situation or the human then avoid them as much as possible or stop complaining.

Change the situation for the better if you can but stop complaining or nagging about things which will probably never change and are outside of your ability to change for the better.

If you are nagging your significant other too much then you should consider replacing him or her with someone you won’t have to nag so much.

 

Lying to yourself:

Stop thinking that you should always be the center of attention, that you are never wrong and don’t need to apologize for anything, that everyone that you meet should admire and respect you, and that everyone should agree with your beliefs and opinions.

Excessive pride or an over inflated ego ignores the fact that most of us are imperfect humans with flaws and that we sometimes need the help of others to compensate for our weaknesses which we sometimes are unaware of.

Knowing yourself intimately as objectively as possible is the first step to being truthful about yourself and your abilities. Don’t be delusional and you won’t be handicapped with an unrealistic judgment of your abilities and potential.

 

Criticizing too much and inappropriately:

Harsh criticism, put downs, name calling, and ridicule feels like a personal attack, puts humans in a defensive mode, and they will do their best to ignore the criticism or defend their actions beyond reason.

Make tactful helpful suggestions on how a human should behave or solve a problem or mistake and there will be less resistance and potentially more cooperation and effective future actions.

 

Surrounding yourself with negative humans:

Surrounding yourself with bad, especially immoral humans is a terrible idea.

Interacting too much with a complaining, blaming, procrastinating, pessimistic, jealous, resentful, fearful, depressed, and abusive human is also bad and is what is commonly called a negative human with some or many of the listed bad characteristics.

Trying to associate more with optimistic humans is the solution to this bad problem.

 

Being secretive instead of telling humans what is bothering you:

Humans can rarely read your mind and good honest, sincere, trustworthy communications depend on full disclosure of what is bothering you so that humans can react appropriately without unnecessary misunderstandings.

 

Being secretive with humans you don’t know well may save you from embarrassment sometimes but if you want to maintain close relationships with a human then secrecy is not advisable because humans get upset if they feel you are trying to hide something important from them.

 

Arrogant bragging or trying too much to impress others with your wealth and/or accomplishments:

Almost no one likes a braggart and if you go around too much trying to impress humans with your greatness then they will think less of you and not give you the admiration and respect which you are hoping for.

 

Unfriendliness:

Smart humans know that the most progress is made with the help of other humans and a friendly attitude will frequently attract new useful humans and keep the friendships which you have already made.

A friendly attitude towards strangers or a nice communication with them is useful to find out if they may make good potential new friends or acquaintances.

It is even wise to be polite to assholes who frequently like to abuse humans with their bad behavior and sometimes even get satisfaction from emotionally upsetting other humans.

 

Worrying and fearing too much:

Some worry and fear is natural and frequently motivates us to behave in certain ways or to change the way we react to circumstances.

Too much worry about past and future failures and a fear that the worst will happen can stress us out emotionally beyond realistic necessity.

The courage to get up from failure and try again and again, perhaps a different way, is what makes improvement in our lives possible and is the antidote to too much worrying and fear.

8 THINGS YOU SHOULD LEARN FROM SHITTY HUMANS!!!

IMG_180115033905864

It is best to try and avoid shitty humans. If you can’t avoid them then ignoring them as much as possible may be a solution but you will have to learn to defend yourself and your loved ones against them if they become an inescapable part of your life.

You learn to develop a thicker skin or learn to handle mistreatment without becoming too upset or giving in to abuse. You maintain your composure and hold on to your integrity when crap is being thrown at you.

You learn to defend yourself and those closest to you if they come under unjustified attack or attempted abuse.

You learn that sometimes you may be victimized by mistreatment only because you were available and the bad human was just transferring their bad experience effects or dissatisfaction on you and misdirecting their venom.

You learn that some humans refuse to be helped with advice or consideration and you should not pursue your goal of helping if the human refuses it.

You learn that some shitty humans are just rude, annoying, abusive, and gossip because they enjoy being jerks so you should not become depressed if you are surrounded by more than one such personality type.

You learn that if you live with resentment, hatred, jealousy, and anger at some of the bad things which humans do to you then it will handicap you emotionally. It is best to forgive and move on if possible or to forgive and remember forever so it doesn’t affect you adversely again or so that you can take appropriate steps to avoid future hurt.

You learn that shitty humans have shitty habits which are frequently very hard to change and it is usually a waste of time trying to get them to change those habits into better ones. Shitty humans are emotional weeds trying to make your life miserable if you let them into your emotional life.

You learn that shitty humans are all around and with time you learn to ignore or avoid them as much as possible so that they have minimal bad impact on your life and emotional well being.

7 MISTAKES HUMANS MAKE WHEN CHANGING TO BETTER BEHAVIORS!!!

tumblr_n957nj9K2k1sxsd9vo1_500

It is a mistake to assume that tremendous will power over a long duration will change bad behavior.

You may have all the selfcontrol and determination in the world but if you are going to use will power alone to change to healthier eating habits then you won’t know where to start or put all that will power. You need to do some serious thinking, research, and planning before you can apply any will power to the gradual small steps which you will have to make to start on your road to healthier eating.

It is a mistake to make huge overnight changes instead of gradual steps or changes.

Suddenly overnight buying only organic food and drinks and preparing all the food at home for consumption at work and at home will probably not work because it is too great a shock to your system and you will become very confused about how and when to prepare the food.

It is much smarter to gradually introduce organic snacks into your daily routine and only gradually increase the quantity of the organic food which you add to or replace your regular eating habits with. You enjoy the taste of most of the food which you consume now and chances are it will take a relatively long time to make organic food eating as tasty and desirable in your life.

There is nothing more demotivating than having to eat organic food which sometimes doesn’t taste very good without some sauce or flavoring and forcing yourself to abandon the good tasting overly processed food which you are now probably eating.

It is a mistake to surround yourself with bad role models and an environment which reinforces the bad behaviors which you are trying to change.

If most of the humans which you associate with have unhealthy eating habits and you love to frequent fast food places and supermarkets which don’t have organic produce then the chances of changing to healthy eating habits is rather slim. You must try to surround yourself with external motivators and they are humans who are eating healthy and establishments where healthy food is sold.

It is a mistake to go cold turkey on bad behaviors but better to start some good behaviors which will gradually push out or reduce the time spent on the bad behaviors.

Gradually adding more organic food to your diet will slowly push out the overly processed food which you are eating but that doesn’t mean that you have to totally abandon processed food or can’t have any tasty deserts or no fast food at all.

It is a mistake to think that rationally knowing what to do and where to go will automatically lead to doing those things and going to places to get what you may want or need.

You may have found out which places sell organic food but don’t take the necessary next step in stocking up on some or actually buying some. Old shopping habits and eating habits are hard to change, especially if you find out that it will take a half an hour extra time to travel to an organic food place. You just may be too set in your ways or too lazy to make the extra effort needed to stock up on supplies and prefer eating and shopping at your regular place just 5 or 10 minutes away.

It is a mistake to assume that a new better behavior will be forever.

You may be eating an organic apple as a snack three times a week but this won’t last forever because you will tire of the snack and maybe want to change to an organic banana or pear instead. The beauty is that even good habits can become boring but you can usually replace them with other good habits as the need arises.

It is a mistake to assume that changing behavior is difficult or even impossible.

When you are thirsty then drink. When you are hungry then eat. To make sure that you have something to eat or drink that is healthy for you then consider a tote bag or lunch container filled with good healthy food and drink. Then when you are thirsty or hungry instantly quench your thirst and satisfy your hunger in a healthy way.

CONCLUSION:

An addiction to unhealthy eating can be replaced with an addiction to healthy eating or and addiction to both healthy and unhealthy food which is the compromise most are capable of in this society which is overly biased towards unhealthy triggers enticing us to eat unhealthy in almost every corner of existence.

If you are addicted to gambling, pornography, impulsive shopping, alcohol and drugs then you will have a harder time of replacing those bad addictive habits with new addictive good hobbies and pastimes. It is not impossible once you find out exactly which new hobbies and pastimes would interest you enough to want to commit some time to doing them to some extent for starters.

Of course the smartest thing to do would be to increase your job skills by learning new useful skills and knowledge but unfortunately this will indeed take much selfcontrol and determination since the learning process is not very rewarding for most of us and we would prefer to usually do something else and take the easy way out and do nothing.

WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF LIFE AND WHAT SHOULD YOUR PURPOSE BE???

purpose

The purpose of life has always been to survive and reproduce the next generation. Humans have succeeded so well at this that the polluted world is overpopulated with human protoplasm which is devastating the biodiversity of the food supply and destroying biodiverse wilderness threatening the very survival of healthy civilization.

Nothing is more certain than change and if you are making and achieving small short duration new goals in life and if you have made long duration goals subject to change as necessary then you have purpose or more accurately purposes in life. Even if you never succeed at reproducing which is no longer a necessity but should be considered a luxury, you can have purpose(s) in life.

Caught in a world of impulsive dysfunctional living, bad habits, and starting to feel depressed? If your best friends are just as impulsively dysfunctional then end the bad friendships, improve yourself gradually, and eventually find new and better friends.

Make some new good short duration goals and achieve them thus displacing more and more of your dysfunctional living and bad habits. You may feel discouraged at first because bad living is habit forming and gives you some pleasure. You may not know what a good short duration new goal is but try to connect with new useful skills, new useful knowledge, and new functional friend role models who seem to be living a more purposeful good life with plans for the future. Succeeding at achieving new short duration good goals will give you the confidence to make more of them and you will experience real improvement in your life.

Yes, you can also dedicate yourself to a life of hedonistic indulgences and addictive vices one after the other with indiscriminate use of mind altering drugs. Burn with the intensity of fireworks in your life and it will be just as short lived an experience in your life. Live for today and don’t give a damn about tomorrow will frequently result in a worse tomorrow or even worse -no tomorrow!!!

Good unbiased advice or free useful knowledge is hard to find these days in a fast changing technological century which is fast changing many old rules. You can start by investing your time and energy searching and reading articles in this website which will give you plenty of wise advice on what good habits, good goals, and good lifestyles are.

You are being lied to, deceived, and brainwashed by society and friends. Search for the truth and find some and you will gradually rid yourself of the comforting lies which keep your life functioning badly in a purple haze of impulsive stupidity.

If you are not convinced that I have most of the answers then surf the web and ask your questions using search engines such as Google and Bing. I can only help you to set new useful goals in your life but actually setting them and trying to achieve them is your responsibility and yours only!!!!!!

If you are not happy and feel purposeless then start making some good conscious changes in your life by setting some new realistic good goals and actually achieving them with self-control and determination. Live long and prosper!

FIND AND PRACTICE GOOD HABITS TO REPLACE OR DECREASE THE BAD ONES!!!

good-habits

We all have many bad habits which have become part of our everyday lives and if we eliminate them from our lives then what do we replace them with to fill the void? Replace them partially or totally with good habits.

In a nutshell the good habits are

eating and drinking healthy,

moderately exercising or moving around physically,

financial responsibility,

working smart and hard,

having good relationships with important humans in your life,

improving yourself with new useful knowledge and skills,

and taking time out to think about the priorities or goals in your life and making small adjustments as needed or drastically changing the priorities in an emergency or crisis situation.

In a nutshell the bad habits are

eating and drinking unhealthy,

not exercising or moving around much,

financial irresponsibility,

working stupidly or doing the minimum amount of work,

having bad relationships with important humans in your life,

not improving yourself with new useful knowledge and skills,

not taking time out to think about and readjust the priorities or goals in your life,

not being prepared for emergency or crisis situations,

and being trapped in bad addictive chemical behaviors.

Addiction: n. compulsively desiring a subset(s)

Addictions are usually thought of as addictions to a chemical substance frequently accompanied by severe withdrawal symptoms but processed food and drinks are also filled with lopsided chemicals some of which humans are addicted to such as sugar, caffeine, and carbohydrates. The withdrawal symptoms are sometimes increased anxiety and cravings for the food or drink.

I like to think of important bad habits as addictions to important bad behaviors with withdrawal symptoms similar to food and drink or noticeable increases in anxiety or craving for the bad behavior. The truth is that good habits are also addictions which you can develop a craving for. The choice is yours. Which addictions do you want in your life?

Sexual and gambling addictions or compulsions can do much harm to their addicts who definitely develop cravings for the bad behavior habits when isolated from them. Not everyone gets addicted to compulsive shopping, promiscuity, pornography, or gambling so if one does it a little or sometimes does some in moderation then it can’t be considered to be an addiction or bad behavior all the time or in every instance.

In a crisis situation you may have to go cold turkey or exclude the bad habit completely from your life. Realistically most bad habits are eliminated or reduced in small steps with good habits eventually getting lengthier time wise and more frequent and gradually replacing the old bad habits.

If you are eating unhealthy then start introducing tasty healthy organic snacks and eventually tasty healthy organic ingredients into your meals. Even organic food and drinks are not always tasty so feel free to add your own spices and sugar free sauces to the organic food and drink to suit your taste.

Keep gradually increasing the frequency and quantity of the organic food and drink. Eventually the tasty healthy organic food and drink will replace much of the unhealthy food and drink in your life if you unrelentingly persist in your goal of more healthy eating.

Sure society is so structured that becoming an organic fanatic is not only expensive but hard to do, especially with meat, and if you indulge in unhealthy eating once in a while then don’t feel guilty about it because it will not kill you or ruin your health dramatically.

Unfortunately the herd instinct or doing what others around you are doing is a very compelling force and it is very hard to overcome. This is why you should seriously consider finding new best friends with more good habits which you hope to get and leave behind your old best friends with the old bad habits which you have and want to get rid of.

If your best friends eat unhealthy, don’t exercise, are financially irresponsible, don’t like to work, have bad relationships with important humans, and have severe chemical or behavioral addictions or compulsions then the chances are that you will never rid yourself or decrease those bad habits in your life.

Birds of a feather tend to flock together and if you find yourself a member of a group of humans addicted to many bad habits then the situation for improvement is hopeless unless you miraculously become an independent selfmotivated good habit fanatic and live a life of relative seclusion or isolation.

Many humans have large egos and feel that they have almost no bad habits to get rid of. Knowing what a bad habit is or selfawareness is the first step on the road to a better you!!!!!!

Even after selfawareness you may feel that you are getting too much pleasure or satisfaction from your bad habits to want to change them. That is why the freedom to choose is such a heavy personal responsibility for all adult humans and many choose wrongly in the short duration and end up in misery in the long duration with bad health, financial bankruptcy, bad relationships, a bad lifestyle, and sometimes even death.

All good and bad habits start in childhood so you are truly at an unfair or unjust advantage if you have parents, relatives, childhood friends, and teachers with many good habits who serve as good role models.

THE TRUTH ABOUT ADDICTION

addiction_cycle1

Addiction: n. compulsively desiring a subset(s)

You can be addicted to drinking soda, coffee, etc., food, shopping, exercising, sex, legal and illegal drugs and alcohol, smoking, pornography, gambling, lying, reading, hand washing, and hundreds of other compulsive bad habits which can devastate your life or make it very dysfunctional. Some of these addictions are so pleasurable that only the fear of death or financial ruin will eventually cause you to stop them.

If you are addicted to a chemical substance with severe withdrawal symptoms and desperately want to quit then you may have to consult a professional doctor who can minimize the withdrawal symptoms and place you in a rehab center if you can afford it. Addictive chemical habits can’t change overnight and relapses are very common even with professional help.

The best advice to your offspring is don’t get addicted in the first place and avoid all the guilt, cravings, and eventual crises which frequently follow a series of temporary addictive highs.

The best way to cure addictions is to replace them with good habits that you enjoy doing but be aware that acquiring a good pleasurable habit may take more than two months of self-motivated practice or performance to make it a permanent part of your life.

Destroying an addiction on your own is almost impossible to do in many cases and the best advice is to get a professional, family, close good friends, a support group or all four to motivate you to quit your addiction. If you have supportive caring humans to help you break an addiction then the probability that you will succeed greatly increases.

THE TRUTH ABOUT DESIRE

Desires

Desire: v. to mentally sense a need to achieve a goal(s) and frequently making that future achievement more probable and it originates in the survival instinct and search for pleasure

Most of us lead a life filled with desires to eat, drink, talk, have sex, share experiences, possess things, do things, believe things, have a family, get high, hope for some fame and fortune, avoid pain and sorrow, and generally want to be happy.

Desires motivate us to act in certain ways which frequently become good and/or bad habits in adulthood which we frequently have to live with for a lifetime. Without desires our lives would come to a screeching halt, we would sink into devastating depression, or we would not want to do anything.

When your desires stop you also probably stop living or if you have few desires left in life then you probably live a very boring life just eating and drinking and watching TV.

To avoid a boring life you must come up with new desires which motivate you to do something different from your daily boring routine but few are able to make their lives more interesting because their boring lifestyle has become a bad habit which is hard to break or hard to replace with good habits.

Most of us live with impulsive desires in adulthood which create some predictability in our lives but impulse can also be a trap from which it is hard to escape if we would like some better results in our lives.

If your old desires are generally good desires then you will not be in a constant battle with the bad effects of your bad desires and your life should generally be better led. If you are stuck with bad desires then your life may be filled with failure, disappointment, and bad consequences.

Know yourself or be aware of your conscious and unconscious good and bad desires. What you do do may be a good or bad habit which you are getting some satisfaction from.

What you don’t do is harder to figure out because you may be avoiding something to avoid pain, embarrassment, failure, or a blow to your ego which are all unconscious reasons for not doing something or not behaving a certain way.

What generally motivates our desires is to get pleasure and avoid pain. Frequently our pleasurable senses associated with a bad habit may lead to pain or failure which we chose to ignore because seeking immediate pleasure overrides the pain which we will suffer in the future as a result of the short duration pleasure which we get.

Addictions to bad habits like gambling, pornography, impulsive shopping, and drugs gives us immediate pleasure and we just don’t make the logical connection with the bad consequences which result from the addiction and don’t make the smart necessary avoidance adjustments in our behavior.

Bad pleasurable desires are frequently a trap from which few of us escape unless the bad consequences become too much to bear or we crash and burn and barely escape with our lives.

Creating good desires in childhood leads to good habits in adulthood and if you grow up with too many bad desires then your adulthood will be filled with many bad habits causing you much enduring pain and sorrow.

THE TRUTH ABOUT BAD HABITS

66-Live-With-Your-Bad-Habits

You can keep a bad habit, spend less time on it, change to a bad habit which isn’t so bad, or replace it partially or totally with a good habit(s).

You are probably not aware of many of the bad habits which you have and the bad habits which you are aware of are giving you some satisfaction in your life so you are probably reluctant to change them or can’t change them because you are addicted to them. Your bad habits are largely impulsive emotionally driven behaviors which you don’t think much about logically before you do them and they are very hard to change.

Assume that you become aware of a bad habit and you then decide that you would like to change it. How do you proceed? 

Stopping cold turkey is one way but unless it is fear of death or severe social embarrassment it frequently leads to failure. Replacing a bad habit with a new good one is also problematic because practicing a new good habit takes from 10 to 30 days or more to become a reliable good habit.  Replacing a bad habit with a good one which you already have can be more successful. Having a motivating friend, spouse, or support group may also help in your desire to change.

Adult humans with bad eating habits and behaviors are hard to change so it is important that you avoid them as offspring so that they don’t plague you into adulthood. Good role model parents, offspring, and adults are vital to minimizing the total amount of bad habits which you wind up with in life. Sometimes only near death or financial disaster will cure you of an addiction to drugs or profligate impulsive over spending.

Terrible or very bad habits are lying, stealing, and adultery which are also immoral. Do any of these things and a trusting healthy relationship with another human is not possible and you will wallow in unhappiness and misery unless you change and switch to honest faithful relationships.

CONCLUSION:

Eliminating a bad habit by going cold turkey, by replacing it with a new good habit, by replacing it with an old good habit, by replacing it in small steps or spending less and less time on the bad habit are all constructive ways of doing it with varying degrees of success.

What you really need is courageous determined self-motivation or a fear of a bad habit to get you to change to something better. It is basically up to you and your support group and if you fail then you only have yourself to ultimately blame for your failure to improve and partially or entirely exclude your bad habits!!!!!!

Some important bad habits which you should try to change are unhealthy eating, over working, gambling, pornography, impulse buying or shopping, unreliability, arguing, talking too much, and wasting time, energy, and money on trivial things.

Lying, deceiving, or adultery is also immoral behavior and not just a bad habit which is guaranteed to cause misery in your life.

Finally, not reading anything new and useful is a bad habit because it prevents you from being motivated by new knowledge which may be helpful in dealing with your old bad habits.

5 WAYS TO INCREASE THE PROBABILITY THAT YOU WILL BE HAPPIER IN THE FUTURE

relationship1-1024x6802

Many humans are not happy with their jobs, with relationships, with friends, with family, and many with themselves. Solution: reeducate yourself and get a better job, research relationships, friends, family, and personal development and try to apply the new knowledge to your personal life which will hopefully give you greater and more future happiness in your life. What you need is better job skills, money management skills, and social skills to be considered successful in this world.

Of course you can say, forget it, this requires too much DIFFICULT EFFORT on my part so I will continue living my life without any major changes being made since I am not interested in improving my personality or my job.

For those of you interested in change and improvement here are some tips on how to improve your health, personality, and social skills which should help in making your interactions with other humans more successful and happier.

SENSE AND EXPRESS GRATITUDE FILLED WITH OPTIMISM

Frequently remind yourself and be thankful that you are alive, that you are having happy moments in your life, and that you are able to live life another day. Try to face each day charged with an optimistic outlook. Then when you interact with humans express gratitude for the little favors and kindnesses which they offer you and a mere “Thank you” is acceptable. You can follow this up by reciprocating or helping, doing a favor, or being kind to the human who has helped you in some way.

DON’T HATE ANYONE FOR TOO LONG AND FORGIVE MOST OF THE TIME

Humans will do terrible things to you which you will hate but if they are family or close friends then learn to forgive and forget if those terrible things are rather rare. Coworkers may also do hateful things and they too can be forgiven if they do it once or twice but don’t be a sucker and let them continue their bad behavior if it threatens to destroy good working relationships with others on the job. Take action and complain to your boss if the human becomes truly intolerable and starts to threaten the quality of your work output.

SET SHORT DURATION AND LONG DURATION GOALS AND SPEND MOST DAYS TRYING TO ACHIEVE THEM

Committing yourself to goals will make it seem like you are truly making progress in your life and you can happily celebrate a little each time you reach a short or long duration goal. Achieving the goals should make you happy for a little while and you should have many more happy future moments if the goal achievement brings more happiness in your life after it has been achieved.

CARE MORE ABOUT CLOSE IMPORTANT SOCIAL RELATIONSHIPS THAN WITH CASUAL ONES

Caring means nurturing or supporting and protecting a relationship with a human. It should be obvious that you should spend more time caring about your family and close friendships than caring about your casual friends and acquaintances. Don’t obsess about what casual friends and acquaintances think of you because they are not that important in your life to deserve the attention. You may sometimes get rude and nasty remarks from humans which are not close to you but you should not let this bother you unless it is a truthful remark about one of your bad characteristics or behaviors.

TAKE CARE OF YOUR BODY

You need a healthy body as a prerequisite to a healthy happy mind so get some moderate exercise (a twenty minute fast walk about 3 times a week is usually enough), get enough sleep, spend some time meditating and/or thinking, and eat healthy with as much certified organic food as you can afford or make time for.

THE “SHOCKING” REAL TRUTH ABOUT HAPPINESS

Summer-happiness-photo

Science has proven that if you are doing things which feel pleasurable then you are happy in the moment. If you have bad behaviors which are giving you pleasure while you are doing them then you are happy doing them. The only problem is that your bad behavior will frequently result in many bad consequences which will ultimately add more unhappiness to your life and you should really be asking one question-

Should I FORCE myself to change my bad habits so that the frequency and duration of the bad consequences or unhappy moments decreases??? Another way of saying this is- Should I try to increase the times that I am happy and increase the length of time that I am happy every, day, week, month, or year by eliminating as many bad unhappy moments and bad unhappy consequences as possible?

A perfect example is a HAPPY panhandler or beggar. Give him or her enough free money during the day which they don’t have to work for and they will happily spend it on alcohol, drugs, and some food and drink at the end of the day. They will consume it and be relatively happy with life. If they don’t get any money during the day then they will have an unhappy day but WILL probably look forward to the next day or change their panhandling to another location where they hope to get lucky again. Nature loves efficiency and a beggar can be very efficient at surviving and not pollute his or her environment.

If you want to have a higher frequency of happy moments and want them to last longer then you will have to FORCE yourself to change some of your daily bad habits and replace them with better ones which don’t have as many bad consequences or unhappy moments.

Sure, most of us are conditioned to believe that more money, good friends, a nice family, nice possessions, and exciting pastimes will give us more happiness in our lives but that means more responsibility, hard work to earn the money needed, DIFFICULT learning of good job and good social skills, and having some time left over to enjoy the exciting pastimes which make you very happy.

It is a fact of life that the level of happiness for the rich is about the same as for the middle class and only the very poor are really very depressed and unhappy if they are living from paycheck to paycheck without a saved up a reserve for emergency situations such as unexpected medical expenses, car repairs, and appliance breakdowns. Add to this dysfunctional immoral lifestyles, alcohol or drug dependencies, bad social skills, a bad education and you have some very unhappy poor people living in an almost constant state of emotional and physical stress or crisis.

CONCLUSION:

If you are unhappy then you will have to analyze yourself OR know thyself. Identify the bad habits which are making you unhappy or giving you so many moments of unhappiness in life. Start excluding your little bad habits first to reassure yourself that you can really do something about your situation which should never seem hopeless. With lifelong optimism and constant research proceed to tackle or forcefully remove with mental toughness the major sources of your unhappiness or the bad habits which are causing some terribly bad consequences in your life. Replace your bad habits with better ones but be forewarned that this may frequently take a month or so of self-motivated constant hard mental and even physical effort.

I have written a truthful evergreen book HOW TO IMPROVE YOURSELF: HOW TO GET WHAT YOU WANT; HOW TO SAVE TIME & MONEY which will help you if you really don’t know where to start and are not very good at self-analysis. Another recommended book of mine is HOW TO SAVE MONEY which is a must read if you are heavy in credit card debt due to your impulsive shopping bad habits. If you are unhappy with your love life or family life I have evergreen books which will help you solve those problems too-LOVEALL and MODERN PARENTING.

6 IMPORTANT RELATIONSHIP BAD HABITS IN A MARRIAGE

A man is having an argument with his girlfriend while sitting on a couch

Most bad habits deal with bad emotional control, lying, trying to change the hard or impossible to change, and letting external humans or events adversely affect the relationship.

TRYING TO IMPROVE YOUR SPOUSE’S PERSONALITY WITH NAGGING:

If your spouse does not take out the garbage, doesn’t like to cook, will not vacuum, and do household chores in general then it may be possible to gradually change this in the relationship eventually.

If your spouse is shy or not sociable, is a poor communicator, is not funny or humorous, is unreliable and doesn’t keep promises, is overly selfish, or is not interested in disciplining offspring then it will be almost impossible to change these basic personality types. If you do try to change your spouse’s personality then you will probably meet with failure and have to go through much nagging or complaining and fruitless arguments.

GETTING IN-LAWS INVOLVED IN RELATIONSHIP ISSUES:

Nothing is worse than engaging in-laws who take sides in a marriage and almost always find fault in one spouse and not the other. Ganging up on a spouse with in-law backup will only heighten the anger over an issue and not resolve any problem. Borrowing money from in-laws and not being able to pay it back later is also a major source of added problems in a relationship. Let the in-laws give affection and gifts to offspring but don’t get them involved in relationship problems.

FIGHTING AND EXTREME AFFECTION IN PUBLIC:

Nothing is more embarrassing than demonstrating bad communication in public by openly arguing or fighting in public. Extreme displays of affection in public are also embarrassing where modest affection is more acceptable.

TOO MUCH ARGUING AND FIGHTING AND TOO LITTLE DISCUSSION:

When there is a clash of opinions it is very easy to get emotionally angry and get into an adversarial mode instead of a calm discussion which may lead to compromise or one side deciding to not push an opinion on the other any further. A calm discussion may bring out the reason for the underlying angry emotions and reveal the important details in a problem which is begging for a solution.

Too much angry and hateful exchanges reduces the feeling that you still love one another despite your disagreements on many minor relatively unimportant issues. If the arguing is over important issues then the probability of them being resolved in anger is minimal and you should seriously work on asking questions and finding answers in a calm and controlled manner which will increase the probability that you will solve the problem or problems.

TIMING DISCUSSIONS BADLY:

Trying to calmly discuss important issues, especially financial matters, when feeling tired, stressed, or after an argument is not the right time to do so. Set aside a time, such as an hour before bedtime or a few hours after work, when you can discuss important issues in a calm and collected way without much external tension interfering with the communication.

ALLOWING JEALOUSY TO DOMINATE A RELATIONSHIP:

If your partner was promiscuous before marriage and lied to you and was not dependable then it is your own fault for marrying him or her and feeling jealous. If on the other hand you have married a reliable, honest spouse and have developed a trustworthy relationship for over a year then there is no reason why you should be consumed with jealousy.

If you have a predictable relationship and suddenly he hangs up on a call and doesn’t answer, does not answer promptly who called,  suddenly there is a drop in how frequently he wants sex, or you have an impulsive feeling that he or she has changed in some unusual way then spying may be a solution to your impulsive doubts. If you have developed a mutual trusting relationship in your marriage and everything is going along smoothly then spying should not be necessary and it will only increase your doubts and keep you in a state of terminal jealousy.

LYING TO YOUR SPOUSE OR LYING TO YOURSELF:

Nothing destroys a marriage speedier than lying because it destroys a trusting relationship which is necessary for a strong bond in the marriage. Lying to yourself that honesty is not important will not make things better.

Little white lies like lying about liking a homemade meal or a dress which you don’t like may encourage you to lie about bigger things too. You may become unreliable in the promises which you make and start making stupid excuses instead. Anger, suspicion, jealousy, unsatisfaction, disappointment, and unnecessary stress all grow and can explode in an untrustworthy relationship and even end it.

8 INEFFICIENT THINGS YOU SHOULD NOT BE DOING ON THE JOB!!!

20130429-full

Checking your phone or emails while you are talking to someone:

It is rude and conveys the impression that you don’t care about the human who you are talking to and hurts their feelings.

Multitasking during a meeting:

It is smart to give your full attention to a meeting so you can flush out and understand hidden agendas, you can spot opportunities to build bridges, and you will find ways to make yourself indispensable to the humans who matter.

Thinking about humans who don’t make a difference in your life:

Don’t waste your time thinking about celebrities and distant acquaintances who can’t improve your life. When you have some time off, think about the important humans in your life such as family, close friends, close coworkers, and your boss who are humans that can make your life better and they truly deserve your attention.

Getting distracted and responding to every notification immediately:

Everything which pops up on your phone or computer is not something which needs your immediate attention and focusing on your work should be priority number one. Most casual notifications don’t need an immediate response.

Letting the past always affect your future:

Stop being tormented by past mistakes. It was an opportunity to learn what not to do and personal knowledge about yourself and how you can improve in the future. When others make mistakes it is an opportunity to be gracious, forgiving, and understanding. Making mistakes and correcting them is training or a learning experience which you should not let torment you.

Wait until you are sure you will succeed in a creative effort:

Success when being creative is a probability and not a certainty. Try and fail and you can learn and try again and succeed. Always expecting success on the first attempt is a perfectionist’s delusion in the real world of work. If you are too impulsive and fail too many times your confidence will be affected but waiting too long to do something because of a fear of failure is also not the proper way to work creatively.

Talking about someone behind their back:

Gossiping or frequently saying bad things about a human behind their back is poor social etiquette. If there is something which you find unpleasant about a human confront them personally and comment on their behavior. You will be respected more if you don’t speak critically of others behind their backs.

Saying “yes” when you really mean “no”:

Refusing a favor for a colleague, customer, or friend is hard because you don’t want to hurt their feelings but if you honestly don’t want to do the favor for a good reason or just a gut feeling then most people will understand. Most humans given enough time will not hold a grudge against you for saying no sincerely. If you say yes to something which you didn’t want to do you will regret it for a very long time and feel bad about it even if it is only during the time that you did the favor.

11 IMPORTANT THINGS WHICH WILL HELP A MARRIAGE TO LAST

traditional_marriage

Be loyal devoted best friends and the relationship will even endure once the sex becomes less frequent or non-existent.

Learn to listen fully to what your spouse is communicating and respond calmly if you are not angry, hungry, or tired. Learn to become a good listener and calm cooperative communicator instead of an angry confrontational opponent.

Try to never lie because honesty, sincerity, and telling the truth creates a trustworthy relationship accompanied by respect and admiration. Even white lies are unnecessary because there are diplomatic ways of communicating objections.

If you don’t like a dress then say that it is nice but that it is not your favorite color combination, pattern, style, or shape. If you don’t like a meal then communicate that it is a little too spicy, salty, or contains a food which is not your favorite. Save your superlative words such as beautiful and wonderful for things which you really like or approve of. Permanent hurt feelings will only exist if you use extreme words such as hate and ugly for things your spouse loves.

Plan ahead and revel in your successes and try to ignore past mistakes and don’t continue to blame a spouse for past mistakes. Learn to forget and forgive if it is not a marriage threatening situation. Find solutions to your problems and act on them or try to do something about your problems. Stop the blame game.

Find, identify, and pursue common goals which may change in priority as the marriage progresses. Working towards common goals with teamwork will strengthen a marriage and not weaken it because you will be sharing an experience which you both consider important.

Be open to adaptation and change. Nothing remains constant in marriage forever and new problems will surface which may need new approaches to solving them. Optimistically confront the new situations and adapt accordingly.

Learn to budget your money so that impulsive profligate spending does not interfere with an otherwise good relationship and become a major source of arguments which will threaten the marriage since bad money management is the number one reason for divorce.

Support or nurture your spouse’s personal passions and primary interests as long as they do not threaten to lead to financial bankruptcy.

Drop relationships with pessimistic untrustworthy friends and humans with dysfunctional marriages. Find new friends who are happily married or are confronting life with optimistic realism.

Don’t be adulterous. Adultery is the second leading cause of divorce so don’t do it. It creates fear of abandonment, distrust, jealousy, hatred, and anger in a relationship which any good relationship should not tolerate.

Finally, the traditional purpose of marriage was to raise successful happy offspring. If you are financially responsible and can afford it then offspring should be high on your priority list. To help you in this endeavor read one or more of my evergreen books LOVEALL, MODERN PARENTING, and GOOD MODERN BEHAVIORS.

4 MAJOR ROADBLOCKS TO FUTURE SUCCESS AND HAPPINESS

Success-is-getting-what-you-want.-Happiness-is-wanting-what-you-get-Dale-Carnegie-Happiness-quote

The 4 major roadblocks to your future success and happiness are your bad impulsive habits, the bad impulsive habits of others, a bad job, and bad money management. Start taking actions today and tomorrow which will start removing these roadblocks.

Most of us have large egos and place the blame for an absence of success or unhappiness on other humans or other things and circumstances. We are quick to criticize other humans and the world for our problems and fail to realize that we are responsible for our own success and happiness to a large extent. Even a bum can be happy in life if he or she has enough to eat and drink and not much more.

Your hopes and dreams may be too unrealistic and you may have to downsize them to consider yourself a happy success. You may also have to exclude the trivial and frequently impulsive bad habits which you have developed over the years and are probably stuck with unless you shock yourself into self-realization and reality and decide to do something constructive about it.

You may be emotionally immature, bad in your relationship skills, and bad at managing your finances. Have all three handicaps and your life is probably a very unhappy and unsuccessful one.

Excessive pessimism, jealousy, anger, fear, doubt, selfishness, pride, criticism, and impulsiveness  may not only make you emotionally and mentally handicapped but will make you dysfunctional in your relationships with others too. I have written blogs on how to reduce your emotional immaturity and be happier but you will find no details in this blog article.

Google or Bing anger, fear, etc. and learn more about them and what can be done to reduce their bad effects in your life. Don’t lie to yourself that there is no room for personal improvement but become more introspective, analytical, or knowledgeable about your own emotional weaknesses and discover ways to exclude their bad effects on you and others.

If you are not honest, sincere, reliable, and truthful with others then you will almost never have trusting relationships with others. You can end relationships with others who are untrustworthy and improve your happiness since you will have less problems created by other bad humans in your life.

If you are stuck in a bad job start preparing for a better one and if you are spending too much money then learn to budget it which is an absent skill in this profligate society.

Here are 6 additional things which you should try not to do if you want to optimize your success and happiness:

DON’T LET THE TRAUMA OF PAST MISTAKES AND A FEAR OF MAKING NEW MISTAKES CONTROL AND DECREASE YOUR CONFIDENCE IN MAKING NEW DECISIONS IN YOUR LIFE AND ACTING ON THEM

Everyone makes mistakes throughout life and the smart ones learn from their mistakes and have the courage to act further and make new mistakes which they can apologize for, learn from, and hopefully make new and better decisions in the future.  Some humans get wiser with age and it is primarily because they have made many mistakes in the past and have learned not to repeat them again in their lives.

DON’T TRY TO BUY HAPPINESS OR IMITATE PROFLIGATE LIFESTYLES

One of the biggest tragedies happen when humans try to find happiness in impulsive shopping or trying to keep up with their neighbors or friends who are profligate spenders going into ever greater debt in their lives. You should be looking for happiness in trying to get a better job or improving the job which you now have.

Living simply with an emphasis on personal improvement, family, close friends, and modest spending habits is the true road to fulfilling happiness if you strongly feel that you are too old to change to a better job. Make the best with what you have now.

STOP BEING LAZY OR PROCRASTINATING

It is very easy to stay with our old impulsive bad habits of doing very little different in our lives and putting off until tomorrow all the little things which could improve your life.  Achieving new worthwhile goals in life require action towards those goals and sitting on your butt too frequently and for too long will delay any progress indefinitely.

Your goal may merely be to eat healthier but if you don’t start by researching and buying better food then the healthy food will never reach your stomach. Important long duration goals must be done in smaller successive steps and if you never start with the first or smaller steps or constantly feel that you are not ready for them then it is a guarantee that you will not reach your long duration goals.

SPENDING TOO MUCH TIME WITH THE WRONG OR BAD HUMANS

Nothing will stop your successful progress and achievement in life more than pessimistic, problem filled, untrustworthy friends. Also the confident optimistic liars or BS artists with their bad addictions such as compulsive shopping, gambling, drug dependencies, etc. will keep you in a dysfunctional rut from which you will not be able to escape. Drop these bad friends as soon as possible and start replacing them with better role models.

TRYING TO SATISFY THE NEEDS AND WANTS OF OTHERS AND SACRIFICING YOUR OWN NEEDS AND WANTS TOO FREQUENTLY

The best human relationships are mutual ones where each human gives and gets something from a relationship and it is a relationship of mutual helping and mutual interdependence and sharing. Loving others too much and not loving yourself enough is a sad form of unrequited love where one party benefits at the expense of the other and it is a master slave relationship.

If you feel that you are becoming someone’s slave and are very unhappy doing so then it is time to change the relationship into a more mutually beneficial one. You can’t always easily change a spouse, offspring, or close friend who is tyrannizing you but if you let things go on as before you will never get true satisfaction and improvement of your own needs and wants.

Have the courage to demand small changes in the relationship which may eventually become big changes in the relationship but recognize that there should be limits to your patience. If nothing seems to work then start making plans to leave the relationship and start a new more fulfilling life on your own or with someone new and better.

DON’T LIVE WITHOUT A SCHEDULE

I want to change my life but I don’t have the time to do it. The answer is start scheduling your life by the clock even when you are away from work and you will be surprised how much free time you can actually find to improve yourself and research new ways of doing so.

There are so many trivial things which you are doing in life which waste your time, energy, and money and you should stop or reduce doing them as soon as possible.

You are probably getting some satisfaction out of a bad habit so one way to reduce it is to spend less time or money on it. If you can go cold turkey on a bad habit and replace it with a better one then this is the best option. Spend less time on a trivial activity or replace it with a better one is how to schedule your time wisely.

Set new or better priorities in your life, put them on your schedule, and start spending more time, energy, and money on them and not on the more trivial activities in your life.

5 IMPORTANT GOOD HABITS TO REPLACE BAD OLD ONES

5-good-habits

Schedule your time:

Most humans waste much time, energy, and money by talking too much or socializing too much, by doing trivial relatively unimportant things in their life, and by spending too much time on bad habits which can be improved. One of the most important things which you can do is to prioritize your life and schedule your time away from work so that you have enough time devoted to the things which you think are most important in your life.

Setting a specific time for doing activities is important so the scheduled routine becomes as automatic as possible or becomes a good habit. 8:30 PM put the young offspring to bed by making them put away toys, showering, and dressing for bedtime. 9:00 PM reeducating yourself by learning new knowledge and skills necessary for a better job. 10:00 PM discuss or do things with significant other. 10:30 relax with entertainment. 11:00 PM to 8:00 AM sleep.

Life is not always predictable and your schedule will be interfered with occasionally and you can adjust the times to fit your desired lifestyle but do try to maintain a regular schedule as frequently as possible and you will be establishing good habits to replace the bad ones.

 

Budget your money:

If you are impulsively spending and living from paycheck to paycheck and never have enough money for emergencies such as car repairs, appliance breakdowns, household repairs, or medical expenses then you should seriously consider budgeting your money. Budgeting your money means planning to spend money on things which you really NEED and not on things which you impulsively WANT. It also means setting up separate savings accounts for future education, retirement, and emergencies.

My evergreen book HOW TO SAVE MONEY can help you with budgeting and money management in general.

 

Learn to eat healthy:

Nothing is better for your health than eating healthy food. You should gradually switch to eating minimally processed unsweetened varied certified organic food as frequently as possible. No one can automatically switch from fast food and sweet deserts and treats but at least don’t eat them as frequently any more. Consider artificially sweetened or food with sugar added to be eaten as a treat only once or twice a week.

Snack on nuts and fruits and bring healthy sandwiches to work if you eat more than once a day which is not necessary for most sedentary jobs. Experiment with your food and don’t be afraid that you will poison yourself if you try to eat something new, especially if it is a new natural organic fruit, vegetable, nut, or grain.

Eating good healthy nutritious food instead of a habit of eating unhealthy overly processed food is going to be the hardest bad habit to break so do it gradually by scheduling to eat healthy once a week and gradually increase it to eating healthy at least 4 times a week.

 

Exercise occasionally:

You don’t have to exercise every day and 20 minutes about twice or three times a week is all that you need. You can even go for weeks and months not exercising at all because many of us get enough exercise doing housework and taking care of the offspring. If your job is very stressful then a regular daily exercise routine may help a little in reducing the stress.

 

Improve your relationship skills:

Learn to be more honest, sincere, and truthful with other humans and you will develop good trustworthy relationships with family, close friends, and acquaintances. Learn how to sincerely care for humans without becoming overly generous with your time, energy, and money.

My evergreen books LOVEALL, MODERN PARENTING, and GOOD MODERN BEHAVIORS can help you to learn what caring or nurturing and protecting means in real life and you will become more respected and admired by the humans which you interact with, especially your family.

CONCLUSION:

Most of us lead very inefficient lives wasting much time, energy, and money which could be better spent elsewhere. Scheduling time for budgeting, healthy eating, exercise, relationships, and important priorities in your life such as education and making them good habits or things which you do on a regular basis will help greatly.

It takes about 3 months before a new habit becomes an automatic good habit so don’t get disappointed if you are not getting instant good results with the new schedule which you are working on. Be persistent and remain as selfmotivated as possible and get other humans, especially your significant other, to encourage you in your new lifestyle changes. Dare to succeed!!!!!!

4 REASONS YOUR BRAIN AND BODY WANTS TO STAY WITH BAD HABITS

4992686179_9c48ec5d5d_z

Your impulsive unconscious self frequently overrules your conscious future projection of self:

You may consciously know that you have to study to get a good grade tomorrow but you stay up later than usual watching a good movie first before starting to study. You know that you should eat healthier but if presented with chocolate or a favorite sugary treat then you will probably eat it without a second thought. Immediate impulsive actions which are bad habits frequently overrule any good habits which you are consciously planning to switch to in the future. Procrastination is also impulsive bad habits which most of us constantly struggle with and delay good conscious behavior.

Many neophyte bloggers without a previous history of disciplined writing start off with a handful of articles and that is as far as most of them get. All their great blogging plans fail and they revert back to their impulsive selves.

 

A bad habit can take as long as 10 weeks of conscious effort to stop:

A bad habit is an addiction which your body prefers because it is the most efficient way to deal with life which is in automatic mode. It can take as long as three months of conscious effort to replace an inactive lifestyle with an exercise routine each day or every other day. So many humans have tried joining a gym or a health club filled with initial ambition and good thoughts and much before the three months are up have reverted back to their inactive former selves and don’t attend.

A body with automatic motions and/or inactivity tends to stay in old automatic motions and/or inactivities.

 

Willpower frequently is a limited resource:

It has been scientifically shown that willpower decreases with each application. This basically says that staying motivated for repetitive tasks becomes more difficult the more of the tasks that we do.  Willing your body to do something is forcing it to do something which is something your body does not like to prolong. Forcing or willing yourself to do a new behavior on your own is more difficult than having a personal trainer or coach motivating you to do a new behavior.

Other humans who motivate and other humans who participate in behavior modification with you can produce better results than you trying to modify your behavior on your own without external motivators.

 

Selfindulgence rather than selfimprovement is what your body subconsciously wants and it can even be failure that your mind wants:

If you have a bad habit of failing much your body and mind adjusts to the failure and effectively tries to stop trying to improve. You may make up excuses for your failure or start to accept it as a fact of life and not motivate yourself towards any future improvement.

Staying unemployed or not making advances toward the opposite sex because of a fear of failure or a subconscious feeling of imminent failure is what keeps many humans from improving themselves consciously.  Your body has a tendency to accept things as they are rather than fight for the way things ought to be in your idealized mind and body.

 

CONCLUSION:

Your body is subconsciously addicted to and loves your bad habits and will hold on to them tenaciously. Only a fear of imminent death is sometimes what will motivate you long enough to quit very bad addictive habits such as smoking, drug use, alcohol, and severe obesity.

Changing bad habits on your own is almost infinitely more difficult than finding some continuing motivational support from another human or humans.

11 EXCUSES HUMANS MAKE FOR NOT EATING HEALTHY

Should_I_Choose_Organic_Foods_clip_image008

Eating unhealthy is a bad, addictive, emotionally and sensually pleasant habit which humans impulsively don’t want to change even though they may logically want to in their minds. There are many excuses which are used to not change what they basically enjoy doing and are addicted to.

My busy job makes it impossible to eat right

My family likes fast food

I can’t fight the food industry

I’m too lazy to change

Heart disease and cancer runs in my family

You can’t fight bad genetics

There must be an easy trick or way to change my eating habits

There are so many fad and food experts giving different advice on what to eat

Destiny is in control of my life not me

There is no organic fast food

I don’t like to cook or prepare organic food

Going cold turkey or suddenly switching to eating certified organic food is going to fail because it is not that tasty to begin with and preparing it in a tasty way is a pain in the butt. Switching suddenly to eating organic will be an unpleasant experience and it won’t be very long before you revert back to your old enjoyable addictive eating habits.

Is there a solution to this seeming insurmountable roadblock? Yes, introduce certified organic foods gradually into your diet in small amounts and then more and more as time goes on.

If you can’t find certified organic food start off by buying organic food. Bring your favorite organic fruits, nuts, and yogurt to work for snacking. Make your own sugarless smoothies at home in a fast speed blender adding your favorite slightly sweet organic fruits and vegetables and refrigerate some so you can bring some to work also.

At home make some organic eggs by boiling or frying or raw with milk and eat it with multigrain bread like Ezekiel and seafood such as salmon which can even be from a can readymade to eat.

Find raw milk for pets or get some in a farmers market and add it to your smoothies or to organic beans and grains such as buckwheat and oatmeal mixed with your favorite fruits or berries. Have non organic blood sausage about once a week because it is so nutrient rich. I have been asked why blood sausage? Because vampire bats can survive on blood alone and the Mesai of Africa thrive on a raw milk, blood, and meat diet.

Find organic food recipes on the internet and test them out. The key here is don’t be afraid to experiment, the new organic food will not poison you or kill you and if you discover a tasty recipe that you like then start preparing it and eating it more frequently.

You only have to eat one varied meal a day if you lead a basically sedentary life and that means that you can get by with one certified varied organic meal prepared at home by you or your significant other or spouse.

Go certified organic but do so gradually and eventually turn it into an avalanche. In the meantime don’t feel guilty if you have a medium rare steak, chocolate, donuts, or fast food once in a while for taste satisfaction. Organic need not mean going meatless although organic meat with the exception of buffalo and wild meat is not currently available in organic form. Eat meat in moderation also. We are omnivores and that means that we can eat any food which we are not allergic to in moderation.

Variety is the spice of life and if you include some unhealthy overly processed sugary foods along the way in moderation or once a week then don’t stress about it and it won’t kill you or damage your long duration health in any significant way.

Healthy does not mean losing weight and being skinny because over 50% of the population is genetically programmed to be on the plump side sooner or later in life and will not lose any weight eating healthy.

9 BAD HABITS TO ELIMINATE FROM YOUR LIFE

487811_10151336801255326_410775141_n

Ignoring bodily health

Ignoring body health in youth may not lead to immediate bad consequences but sooner or later it will start impacting your life and you will be sicker and not functioning at your full potential. Make sure you eat healthy by staying away from over processed overly sugary foods as much as possible and start switching to a variety of certified organic food.

You don’t have to be religious about it because you can go without exercise for years if you lead an active life doing household chores and taking care of your offspring.  If you are leading a sedentary life with little movement start thinking about getting in about 20 minutes of walking or varied body movement about three times a week.

Being lazy or inactive

There is a current popular saying that a body at rest tends to stay at rest and one in motion tends to stay in motion. Get off your butt and start living life by doing something useful. Don’t be fearful of acquiring new knowledge on the internet and searching for goals which you would like to accomplish next in life. Do a little research by asking questions and getting answers. Start working towards a better job in small steps. If you waste your time looking for fun things to do it will cost you more money and stress you out financially and maybe even emotionally so start improving your knowledge on a subject with potential future application like a new and better job.

Avoid bad humans and bad experiences as much as possible

It may not be obvious but if you spend time with unhappy or miserable humans much of that will influence you and you will also be more unhappy with your life. Try to associate with optimistic happy humans and you will add happiness to your life. If you have a lousy job that is making you unhappy then start learning and planning for a better one. Associate with happy humans and a happy work environment and you will be happier for it.

Eliminate disorganization in small steps

Organize your workspace and make it neat and tidy. Replace your disorganized random work behavior and even personal life with one that operates on a schedule which uses your time wisely. Impulsively going through work or life is very inefficient and you can get much more done if you have an orderly environment and plan ahead for all the events in your work and life by the clock.

Don’t envy others lifestyles and material successes

Other humans will always seem to be doing better than you either with relationships or materially or exciting experiences. Don’t be envious because all that activity and material wealth is costing money and they are probably maxed out on their credit cards and in a financial hole which will make their great lifestyle come crashing down sooner or later. Live a simpler more efficient and thrifty life and you will avoid stressing out financially and emotionally.

Don’t try to please everyone

Don’t waste time and energy thinking whether you are wearing the right clothes, saying the right thing, or reacting properly to situations in your life. Try to please the most important humans in your life to some extent and that includes family and close friends but ignore what everyone else may think of you and stop trying to please them.

Plan for a new job before it chronically stresses you out

If your work load is getting almost unbearable or if you hate your job, you have terrible coworkers, and your job security is starting to be questionable then start looking for a new job or start educating yourself for a better next job before you become chronically stressed out.

Only robots are perfect

Don’t worry about not being perfect because no one can realistically be perfect or do everything right all the time. If you achieve most of your job goals and do so punctually and within acceptable standards then be satisfied with it because it probably won’t get any more perfect.

Don’t be financially illiterate

If you are not spending money with a budget and are spending money impulsively from paycheck to paycheck then learn to budget your money. What that basically means is that you should be saving up about 10% of it for a rainy day an/or your retirement and putting it into a savings account but not the stock market. Also don’t spend more than your monthly budget allows and if you do it for emergencies then take it out of your savings account but don’t develop a bad habit and constantly use savings to bail you out of overspending. Use a debit card if you can’t budget properly with a tempting credit card.

11 HINTS YOU ARE PROBABLY NOT READY FOR A SERIOUS DATING RELATIONSHIP

1297383050546_ORIGINAL

You flirt with everything that breathes is a sure indication that you are not ready for a faithful and exclusive relationship with the opposite sex.

You treat your dates like they are a second option in your life and not a first priority thus making your date feel like a second fiddle.

You can’t keep a conversation going but stop speaking with nothing to say for long periods of time. This will create the impression that you are not skilled in human relationships.

You don’t keep your attention on your date but check emails and text and let your attention wander in other ways without focusing on your date as priority number one.

You constantly bring up your ex girlfriend or ex boyfriend or ex spouse in the conversation with your date. This means you are stuck in the past relationship wise and no serious date wants to share your past relationship failures.

You are a male and reveal that you are not interested in a long duration relationship so your date will be repulsed.

You don’t spend enough time with your date but only date once or twice a month will create the impression that you are not interested in a serious relationship.

You are stuck in the past with past memories and no future plans. This will also create the impression that you don’t know what to do with your future and no one will want to join your life which is stagnating.

You are depressed and only talk about bad things in your life and have a pessimistic view of the world. No one will want to share your gloomy life.

You are unemployed and treat life as a joke with no household skills like cooking or cleaning. This will create the impression that you have a mooching personality which no one wants.

You have a history of cheating on dates so no date will trust you and without trust a serious relationship is not possible in the real world.

jjwp348

HOW DO YOU EXCLUDE A BAD HABIT?

  1. PRIORITIZE YOUR BAD HABITS AND TRY TO CHANGE THE LEAST BAD ONES FIRST
  2.  DECREASE THE BAD HABIT’S SIZE
  3.  DECREASE THE AMOUNT OF TIME USED ON THE BAD HABIT
  4.  DECREASE THE FREQUENCY OF THE BAD HABIT
  5. REPLACE PART OR ALL OF THE BAD HABIT WITH A GOOD HABIT AND/OR MANY SMALL GOOD HABITS. MAKE A LIST OF ALL THE GOOD HABITS WHICH WILL REPLACE THE BAD ONES SO YOU KNOW WHAT YOUR GOOD HABITS ARE IF YOU HAVE ANY.
  6. MAKE A LIST OF ALL THE GOOD THINGS WHICH WILL HAPPEN IF YOU EXCLUDE THE BAD HABITS. THE ANSWER IS ALWAYS THAT YOU WILL SAVE TIME AND ENERGY AND MONEY WHICH YOU WASTE ON THE BAD HABIT!!!
  7. REPEAT YOUR GOOD HABITS MORE FREQUENTLY AND THE OLD BAD HABITS WILL NOT RETURN AS SPEEDILY IF AT ALL BUT MAKE SURE THAT YOUR GOOD HABIT REPLACEMENTS ARE NOT GOING TO COST YOU MORE MONEY THAN THE OLD ONES DID!!!!!!
  8. A LIST OF GOOD HABITS TO CHOOSE FROM.

TRY TO CHANGE YOUR SMALLEST BAD HABITS FIRST AND IF YOU SUCCEED YOU WILL HAVE THE COURAGE TO TRY AND EXCLUDE THE WORST BAD HABITS WHICH YOU THINK YOU HAVE.

IF YOU EAT TOO MUCH AND TALK TOO MUCH ON THE PHONE OR HANG OUT WITH FRIENDS TOO MUCH IN PERSON OR ON THE INTERNET AND IMPULSE SHOP TOO MUCH START BY CUTTING BACK ON TALKING ON THE PHONE OR HANGING OUT WITH FRIENDS FIRST WHICH IS THE EASIEST BAD HABIT TO TRY AND DECREASE IN SIZE AND FREQUENCY. EXCLUDE TOO MUCH IMPULSE SHOPPING NEXT AND DECREASE EATING TOO MUCH LAST.

YOU CAN REDUCE THE SIZE OF A HABIT SPACIALLY BY USING LESS OF WHAT IS PART OF YOUR BAD HABIT. IF YOU EAT TOO MUCH DECREASE THE AMOUNT OF FOOD WHICH YOU PUT ON THE PLATE OR EAT HALF OF THE FAST FOOD WHICH YOU ORDER.

IF YOU SMOKE TOO MUCH TAKE HALF OF THE CIGARETTES OUT OF THE PACK AND ONLY SMOKE WHAT IS IN THE PACK FOR THE WHOLE DAY.

IF YOU ARE A 2 PACK A DAY SMOKER DECREASE TO 1 PACK A DAY. IF YOU DRINK LARGE CUPS OF COFFEE OR SODA DECREASE THAT TO DRINKING A SMALL SIZE CUP OF COFFEE OR SODA.

DECREASE THE AMOUNT OF TIME MEANS THAT YOU USE LESS TIME ON A BAD ACTIVITY OR BAD HABIT.

IF YOU SPEND 20 MINUTES EATING A MEAL STOP AFTER 10 MINUTES AND DON’T EAT ANY MORE.

IF YOU SPEND 10 MINUTES ON AVERAGE TALKING TO FRIENDS DECREASE THAT TO 5 MINUTES OF TALKING. IF YOU WATCH TV TOO MUCH DECREASE THE TIME THAT YOU WATCH A PROGRAM AND MAYBE EVEN STOP WATCHING A HALF HOUR PROGRAM AFTER THE FIRST 15 MINUTES. IF YOU ARE WATCHING TOO MUCH SPORTING ACTIVITY DECREASE THE TIME ON WATCHING SPORTS TOO.

YOU CAN REDUCE THE FREQUENCY OF THE BAD HABIT SO THAT INSTEAD OF GOING ONCE A WEEK TO A MOVIE GO ONLY ONCE EVERY TWO WEEKS. IF YOU EAT THREE TIMES A DAY AND DRINK 6 TIMES A DAY DECREASE THE FREQUENCY BY A THIRD AND ONLY EAT ONCE A DAY AND DRINK ONLY TWICE A DAY.

IF YOU GO TO BARS ONCE EVERY WEEK CUT DECREASE THE FREQUENCY TO ONCE EVERY TWO WEEKS. IF YOU SMOKE ONCE EVERY 15 MINUTES DECREASE THAT TO SMOKING ONLY ONE EVERY HALF HOUR AND YOU HAVE DECREASED THE SMOKING FREQUENCY BY A HALF.

YOU CAN REPLACE PART OF A BAD HABIT WITH SMALLER GOOD ONES. IF YOU WATCH TV TOO MUCH TAKE TIME OFF AND GO ON THE INTERNET FOR ENTERTAINMENT FOR HALF THE TIME AND DON’T WATCH YOUR LEAST FAVORITE SHOWS ON TV ESPECIALLY IF THEY ARE ONE AFTER THE OTHER.

FIND OTHER INTERESTING ACTIVITIES OR GOOD HABITS WHICH YOU HAVE AND INSERT THEM INTO A BAD HABIT TO START BREAKING IT UP A BIT. YOU CAN TRY GOING COLD TURKEY AND STOPPING THE BAD HABIT ENTIRELY BUT THEN TRY TO REPLACE THE TIME USED ON IT WITH ONE OF YOUR GOOD HABITS AND DO THEM INSTEAD.

AFTER HAVING MADE A LIST OF ALL YOUR GOOD HABITS MAKE SURE THAT YOU REPEAT THEM AS FREQUENTLY AS YOU CAN IN YOUR LIFE SO THE BAD HABITS WILL NOT SUCCEED IN SEEPING BACK INTO YOUR BETTER LIFE!!!
