We tend to be unconscious of behaviors that are causing pain and unnecessary suffering in our lives.
1. Stop complaining.
Don’t find fault, find a remedy; anybody can complain.
~ Henry Ford
2. Stop Judging.
We can never judge the lives of others, because each person knows only their own pain and renunciation. It’s one thing to feel that you are on the right path, but it’s another to think that yours is the only path.
~ Paulo Coelho
3. Stop avoiding your fear.
Run from what’s comfortable. Forget safety. Live where you fear to live. Destroy your reputation. Be notorious.
4. Stop being so hard on yourself.
When there is no enemy within, the enemies outside cannot hurt you.
~ African Proverb
5. Stop being negative.
Misery loves company.
6. Stop caring about what other people think of you.
Care about what other people think and you will always be their prisoner.
~ Lao Tzu
7. Stop worrying about the small stuff.
When I look back on all these worries, I remember the story of the old man who said on his deathbed that he had had a lot of trouble in his life, most of which had never happened.
~ Winston Churchill
8. Stop needing to be right all the time.
The need to be right all the time is the biggest bar to new ideas. It is better to have enough ideas for some of them to be wrong than to be always right by having no ideas at all.
~ Edward De Bono
9. Stop blaming others.
People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are. I don’t believe in circumstances. The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and, if they can’t find them, make them.
~ George Bernard Shaw
10. Stop living in the past or the future.
You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment.
~ Henry David Thoreau
