# 1. Stop spending time with the wrong people – Life is too short to spend time with those who suck your happiness. If someone wants you in your life, they will make room for you. You do not have to fight for a place. Do not ever ask anybody who constantly ignores your value. And remember, it is not those people who stand on your side when you are your best, but those people who are your best friends are your true friends.
# 2. Stop walking with your problems – Face them on the head No, it will not be easy. No person in the world is capable of handling every punch thrown at him in an innocent way. We should not be able to solve problems instantly. It is not how we are made. In fact, we are made to bother, sad, hurt, stumble and fall. Because it is the whole purpose of life – facing problems, learning, optimizing and solving during times. After all, we become mold in that person we become.
# 3. Stop lying to yourself – You can lie to someone else in the world, but you can not lie to yourself. When we take chances, then our life only gets improved, and the first and the hardest chance is that we want to be honest with ourselves.
# 4. Stop your own needs at the back burner –The most painful thing is losing yourself in the process of loving someone, and forgetting that you are also special. Yes, help others; But help yourself too. If there was a moment to follow your passion and do something important for you, then that moment is now.
# 5. Stop trying to become someone who is not you – One of the biggest challenges in life is in a world that is trying to make you like everyone else. Someone will always be beautiful, someone will always be smart, someone will always be small, but they will never be. Do not change people you like. Become yourself and the right people will love you real.
# 6. Stop trying to catch on the past- If you keep reading your last one again, then you can not start the next chapter of your life.
# 7. Stop scaring to make mistakes – Doing something and doing it wrong at least ten times more productive than doing anything. Every success has a mark of failures, and every failure is heading towards success. You want to regret those things which did not do much more than what you did.
# 8. Stop tilting yourself for old mistakes – And our past is also sorry about things. But you are not your mistakes, you are not your struggle, and now you are here with the power to shape your day and future. Whatever is happening in your life, everything is preparing you for a moment that is yet to come.
# 9 Stop trying to buy happiness – Many of our wishes are expensive. But the truth is that the things that really satisfies us are completely independent – work on love, laughter and our passion.
# 10. Stop looking specially for others – If you’re not happy with who you are on the inside, you won’t be happy in a long-term relationship with anyone else either. You have to create stability in your own life first before you can share it with someone else.
#11. Stop idle – Do not think too much or you will cause problems that were not even in the first place. Evaluate the circumstances and take decisive action. You can not change whatever you refuse to face. Progress involves risk. Period! You can not make it with your feet on the first basis.
# 12. Think you are not ready – No one can be 100% ready when an opportunity arises. Because the greatest opportunities in life force us to move forward from our comfort zone, which means that we will not feel completely before.
# 13. Stop joining relationships with the wrong reasons – Relationships should be chosen wisely. It is better to be alone than being in a bad company. There is no need to escape. If something happens to happen, then it will happen – at the right time, with the right person, and for the best reason. Fall in love when you are ready, not when you are alone.
# 14. Stop rejecting the new relationship because the older people did not work –In life you will find that there is a purpose for the people you meet. Some will test you, some will use you and some will teach you. But the most important thing is that something will bring you the best.
# 15. Stop trying to compete against everyone – Don’t worry about what others are doing better than you. Concentrate on beating your own records every day. Success is a battle between YOU and YOURSELF only.
# 16. Stop jealousy of others – Envy is the art of counting the blessing of someone else rather than self. Ask yourself this: “I have something that everyone wants?”
# 17. Stop complaining and sorry for yourself – Life’s curves are thrown for a reason – to move your path in the direction that is for you. You can not see or understand whatever happens to you, and it can be difficult. But reflect on those negative whirlwinds throwing in the past. You will often see that after all they lead you a better place, person, state of mind or situation. so smile! Let everyone know that today you are much stronger than yesterday, and you will be.
# 18. Stop holding the stance – Do not live your life with hatred in your life. You will inflict more harm than people who hate you. Apologies is not saying, “what you did to me is fine.” It is saying, “Whatever I did, it is not going to ruin my happiness forever for me.” Sorry pardon … go away, get peace, free yourself! And remember, forgiveness is not just for other people, it is also for you. If you need to, then forgive yourself, go ahead and try to improve the next time.
# 19. Stop stopping others to get you to your level – To accommodate people who refuse to raise their standards, refuse to lower their standards.
# 20. Stop wasting while explaining to others – Your friends do not need this and your enemies will not trust it anyway. Just what you know in your heart is right.
# 21. Stop doing the same things without taking a break – The time for deep breathing occurs when you do not have the time. If you are doing whatever you are doing, then you will continue to receive whatever you are getting. Sometimes you need to remove yourself to see things clearly.
# 22. Stop ignoring the beauty of small moments – Enjoy small things, because one day you can see back and discover that they are big things. The best part of your life will be small, nameless moments that you spend while smiling with someone.
# 23. Stop trying to make things right – The real world does not reward theists, it rewarded those who work.
# 24. Stop the path of least resistance – Life is not easy, especially when you plan to achieve something worthwhile. Do not take the easy way. Do something extraordinary
# 25. Stop acting like everything is not right – It’s OK to be separated for a while. You have to pretend to be strong always, and there is no need to prove that everything is going well. You should not be worried about what other people are thinking – if you need, crying – it is healthy to restore your tears. The sooner you do, the faster you can smile again.
# 26. Stop blaming others for your troubles – The extent to which you can achieve your dreams depends on the extent on which you take on the responsibility of your life. When you are responsible for others, you deny responsibility – you give others power over that part of your life.
# 27. Stop trying to become everything for everyone – It is impossible to do this, and trying will only burn you. But a person can change the world smiling. Probably not the whole world, but their world. So narrow your focus.
# 28. Stop worrying too much – Concerns will not fall on your burden tomorrow, it will strip your happiness today. There is a way to check whether something is ending, ask yourself this question: “Will it be in a year’s time? Three years? Five years?” If not, then it is not worth worrying.
# 29. Stop focusing on what you do not want to do – Focus on what you want to do. Positive thinking is at the forefront of every great success story. If you wake up with the idea every morning that there will be something wonderful in your life today, and you pay carefully, you will often find that you are right.
# 30. Stop grateful – It does not matter how good or bad you have, be thankful for your life every day. Someone else is fighting hard for them. Rather than thinking about what you are losing, try to think about what you have and everyone is missing.
