A job that doesn’t inspire you.
You should love what you do in order to be successful in the long run. Are you happy imagining yourself working in the same field ten years down the lane? Or do you want a change? Do you want to do something more exciting? It’s time to think about what it is that you heart wants as you still have time to find ways to earn money doing what you love.
Stay with someone because it’s easier.
If you have been in a long term relationship but somehow feel the distance growing between you two, it’s best to not stick with the “forever and ever” goals. You don’t want to wonder later on if you could have had someone who was more compatible with you. Someone who challenged you and helped you grow. Don’t stay with someone because it seems harder to move on and be single.

Living in the same place.
If your heart wants to travel (and you have the money for it), you better go and splurge. One of the best learning ways is travelling. It broadens your views and as you meet new people you develop new ideas and interests. So, don’t be in the same old room, doing the same old job, when you can go out and explore the world.
When you don’t experiment with yourself.
Don’t think that you are what you are, because you can change in ways that you never thought, is possible. If you think you are too self-conscious, try being a bit more of an extrovert. If you think you prefer not taking risks, try something adventurous once in a while to know how it is. Be willing to set in changes within you as life is too long to just be “you”.
There are goals that you want to achieve, but you delay it thinking that you would do it when you have more time, or do it when you are richer or do it when you are 30. But why not today? Who knows what would happen tomorrow?

Be engrossed in saving and not investing.
Invest in the life that you want before it’s too late. If you have enough saying, spend it in something lifelong or spend it in something that you might enjoy and remember for the rest of your life. Life is about making memories, isn’t it? Invest the money in something that you’ve always wanted to do.
Looking for someone who puts your heart together.
You might never fall in love again, if you can’t mend your own broken heart. No one wants to be your rebound and help you pick up the pieces. Everyone wants a company of someone who can open up them and are happy people. Why would anyone date you if they know that you are a sad soul on the inside? They might make you laugh, and replace your ex’s memories but it’s your duty to move on before you meet them.

Spending excessive time thinking about past.
It is tough to not let go off the memories, but you are missing your present if you keep reminiscing about your past. No matter how much you try to hold on, it has already gone and there is no way that things could ever be the same as they used to be. Yes, there are exceptions but you can’t stop your life, while waiting for it to happen and thinking about what you wish would have happened.
Refusing to make the first move.
You should always take a risk to achieve something that you want. You should always express your feeling without the fear of what you’d get in return. Learn to live a simpler life, instead of being in your ego and wasting your time.
