Six Signs to prove you are misusing your life

Monday 11 August 2014 0 comments

Life can be tricky. There are traps galore, and most of them we are probably not even aware of. None of us seeks to waste our lives, it just seems to happen. Awareness is the key, but it’s never so simple. Here are six signs that you may be wasting your life. If you find that a few of them apply to you, don’t fret. Have a sense of humor about it. Laugh at yourself. And then pull yourself out of the trap and jump-start your life. Sometimes you have to wreck your life in order to fix it.


 1) You’re unhealthy: mind, body, and soul

 If you worry too much and you tend to dwell on the past and do a little too much of #2 in this article, you may be unhealthy in mind. If you never exercise and you are not eating healthy food and moderating unhealthy food, you may be unhealthy in body. If you never practice mindfulness or meditation and you never embrace nature and solitude, you may be unhealthy in soul.

 2)You are overly negative

 “Choose” is the keyword in the above quote by William James. This is a big one. Happiness is indeed a choice. If you’re overly negative, generally glass-is-half-empty, and complain too much, then you are choosing poorly. There’s a wealth of joy to be savored in this life. Start savoring it. Begin now. With enough practice those negative thoughts will fade away, and even when things go horribly wrong you’ll appreciate how they can make you stronger, and therefore happier, in the long run.

 3) You don’t challenge yourself enough

 If you never leave your comfort zone, you never travel, and you always have a reason or excuse for not trying something new, then you may be wasting your life. The universe is an amazing place. There is so much to learn, so much to experience. If you’ve closed yourself off to most of it, then your life will reflect that.

 4) You let others tell you how to live

There’s nothing wrong with good advice. But remember: it’s up to you whether it is good advice or not. Nobody knows you like you do. Nobody else has your unique memories. You are, or should be, the driving force in your life. If you are allowing somebody else to drive your life, then you may be wasting it. Question all authority, especially those telling you how to live. Question this article even.

 5) You don’t feel worthy

Self-worth is both one of the easiest and one of the most difficult things we can choose to have. It usually takes courage, because it usually asks that we “act” worthy even before we “feel” worthy. If you find you’re feeling worthless often, then it’s time to act worthy. Trick yourself into higher cosmic resonance. Jump-start your soul with an act of worth that will cause your comfort zone to quake like it was drawn over a fault line.

 6) You spend too much time worried about money

If you think work is the only thing that matters or that the world owes you something, then you may be wasting your life by worrying too much about money. Money is perhaps the biggest distraction to living a meaningful life that there is. This is mostly because of cultural conditioning and a system built upon fundamentally unsustainable principles. Our culture breeds greediness at its core. Most of us are raised believing that the almighty buck will somehow save us, or that money is the key to happiness, or even that money will bring us love.
