Everyone aspires to be successful. Things may come easily for some but everyone has to go through many obstacles to get where they are. If you want to be successful then you should see what you are not doing. Here is a list of 10 things that successful people never do again:

1. Be something they are not

Whether it’s a relationship or a work related thing, if it requires you to be someone you are not, you should not waste your time with it.

2. Try to change someone

Don’t run after people who don’t want to take your advice or want to change. Sometimes you let them be and let them make their own mistakes.

3. Think you can make everyone happy.

If you run in the race to make everyone happy, you will lose before you even start. Please the right people and that would be enough.

4. Believe in something that is flawless.

We all have imperfections, and if you see someone that looks like they have everything held together or they probably don’t. Don’t run after perfection.

5. Preferring short-term over long-term

You may be struggling because things seem hard right for now, but always ask yourself if it’s worth sacrificing everything for short-term gain?

6. Take your eyes off the big picture.

You may succeed at one step of your life but that doesn’t mean that you’ve made it. Keep working hard for your goals with the same determination.

7. Go back to what didn’t work for you in the first place

One bad experience should be a lesson enough. You should never do one thing twice before the chances of the result being the same are too high.

8. Be diligent but not smart

Working like a machine isn’t enough. You need to keep a check and balance – are you getting anywhere from this work or is it just drudgery? Keep a check on your choices honestly.

9. Not asking you, “Why am I here?”

In any situation of your life, one should always ponder about why are they where they are. One should always look for a purpose.

10. Forget that happiness matters.

Being successful is one thing and being happy is another thing. If you are not happy on the inside, you will never be happy on the outside. You should make sure that where you go in life, you should feel successful where it really matters – in your heart.
