People from all over the world have one common desire. They are looking for happiness. There is no definite concept of happiness that’s why all people keep moving in different directions to reach their happiness. Each person has an individual vision and perception of happiness. I think all people have habits which can both help them become happy or lose their dream. Unfortunately, there are many habits that steal your happiness and make you feel miserable. These harmful behaviors can easily affect your emotional well-being, if you do nothing to correct them. Read on and be aware of the things that steal your joy each day.
1. Waiting for a suitable moment
Only you can change your life. Don’t wait for the perfect moment, make every moment perfect instead. Many people who keep waiting for the perfect opportunity and for the best moment to do what they have to do, usually end up doing nothing. Life is short, so you should do your best to seize the opportunity to make your life and the life of your dearest and nearest people better.
2. Working without interest
Working for nothing more than a paycheck is a kind of imprisonment. Unfortunately, nowadays many people face economic problems and go to work they hate. You shouldn’t give up on your dreams and work without passion and interest. This is your life and it’s up to you to find a job that defines you. Confucius once said a wonderful thing, “Choose a job you love and you will never have to work a day in your life.”

3. Focusing on the success of others
There are so many happy people around. You often find them smiling, joking and succeeding in everything. Consequently, you begin to focus on other people’s lives and compare your success to their goals. Don’t let these destructive thoughts flag your spirits. Just define success for yourself and move on towards your dream. You are the only master of your own fate. Incredible change happens when you decide what kind of life you want to live and admit how you can bring it to life.
4. Living with worries and fears
Fears and worries are false emotions that can deprive you of many opportunities to become better or do something you’ve never done before. Don’t let all those fears and negativity take over your life. They usually make you feel despondent when you realize that you have lost a great number of joys and moments of happiness. You’d better be strong enough to face all your fears and allow them to become opportunities to expand your life. Don’t worry, be happy!
5. Harboring hate in your soul
As Maya Angelou said, “Hate, it has caused a lot of problems in the world, but has not solved one yet.” This bad habit can really affect your mental well-being, if you give way to negative emotions. Hate is one of the most powerful emotions that can ruin both your happiness and life. You should recognize hatred and let it go. It’s more pleasant to enjoy things you have and don’t hold on different negative thoughts. To my mind, the only weapon that can make hatred go away is love. Love breeds life and light, but hate breeds destruction and chaos.
