Life is short. It may feel like it takes forever sometimes, but the reality is that you live, and a short time later, you die. It happens so quickly, many people don’t even realize they had a life until it’s already over.


1、Stop Doubting Yourself

If you don’t believe in yourself, nobody will. Success starts in your mind, and if all you’re doing is putting yourself down and predicting failure, it’ll become a self-fulfilling prophecy. Instead of doubting yourself, think positively. Not only will you be happier and more successful, you’ll spread it to everyone around you.


2、Stop Being Negative


Now that you’re done doubting yourself, stop doubting others. You don’t like when people are critical of you, so stop being critical of others. Think about how you make other people feel – even if you have good intentions, people don’t like hearing negativity.


3、Stop Procrastinating


I don’t feel like procrastinating right now – I’ll do it tomorrow. When you procrastinate, you remain stagnant. Whatever you’re putting off doesn’t go away; resolve the problem, and move on. You’ll be much happier in the long run.


4、Stop Being Mean


It’s completely possible to step on someone’s toes without meaning to – it happens all the time. There’s no need to pile on by purposefully doing mean things, so make a conscious effort to stop being mean. If someone wrongs you, let it go. There’s no need to seek vengeance unless that’s the type of person you want to be.


5、Stop Eating Out


out is the biggest waste of money. Every so often it’s nice to treat yourself,
but eating out for every meal is the quickest way to drain your bank account.
Learn how to cook at least a handful of foods you enjoy: It’ll save you money,
keep you healthier, and occasionally impress people.


6、Stop Being Lazy


people are annoying – it’s like pulling teeth getting them to do anything. If I
can’t do something as simple as going to a movie with you without having to
factor in an hour of convincing you to get your lazy butt out of bed, I’d rather
go alone. People have enough trouble motivating themselves; don’t make your
friends and family waste their valuable energy motivating you as well.


7、Stop Complaining


all have problems, and sometimes we need to vent to someone. That’s acceptable,
but pay attention to how often you’re venting. We all love helping our friends
and family, but when all you get from someone is negativity, it’s easier to cut
them off than help, especially if they’re always complaining about the same


8、Stop Being Selfish


you only think about yourself, you’ll soon find yourself by yourself. Stop for a
minute and think about how your actions affect other people – did you take the
last cup of coffee from the break room? Refill it! Do you live with others?
Don’t drink out the milk carton. We share this world 100% of the time, so every
action you take can affect other people.


9、Stop Wasting Time


said it before, and I’ll say it again: time is the most valuable resource we
have. Don’t waste your time on unproductive things. If you want to explore the
world’s dark corners, that’s great. I still associate with people who have
not-so-kosher careers, but I don’t hang out with those people at the expense of
my own short- and long-term goals.


10、Stop Making Promises


under-promise and over-deliver. When you make a promise, you’re adding
responsibility to your plate that, despite all your best intentions, you may not
be able to deliver on. More often than not, your promise is an absolute (i.e “I
promise I’ll always love you”), and only Sith deal in absolutes. Instead of
making a promise with your words, simply be there when people need you, and
exceed their expectations with your actions.


11、Stop Being a Pushover


live in a capitalistic society in which everyone’s trying to sell us something.
Everyone’s looking out for themselves in one way or another, and you need to do
the same. Stop putting yourself out because you’re too shy to say no.


12、Stop Listening to Haters


matter what you want to do in life, there’s always someone around to tell you
why it can’t and won’t work. I can come up with millions of reasons Twitter
won’t work, and yet it’s one of the most popular social media sites on the web.
My opinion didn’t stop Twitter’s success any more than it convinced Kobe Bryant
to quit the NBA or Josh Hartnett to stop acting. Why would you let someone’s
opinion stop you?


13、Stop Being Wasteful


don’t finish your meals, and away food instead. You leave the faucet running
when you brush your teeth, pouring precious water down the drain. You drive
places you could easily walk, burning gasoline (a non-renewable resource)。 You
are wasteful, and it needs to stop.


Stop Littering


only thing I hate more than wasteful people are litterbugs. Litterbugs are my
least favorite bug, and there are more than you’d think. If you’ve ever thrown
even one piece of gum, paper, candy wrapper, cigarette butt, etc on the ground,
you’re a disgusting litterbug, and you should be ashamed of yourself. There are
over 7 billion people in the world – if each person only throws one “innocent”
piece of garbage on the ground, that’s 7 billion pieces of garbage littering a
world in which nobody “did it”。


one decision makes a HUGE difference, and I will not allow you to blow it off
and walk around with your head held high. You’re a litterbug, and it needs to
stop immediately. You don’t get a lifehack for this one, you filthy animal. Just
stop – you already know how.


15、Stop Taking Everything Personally


get offended about the strangest things. Take Kendrick Lamar’s now-infamous
verse on “Control” this summer: he called out a list of a dozen rappers he
thinks he’s better than (and he’s right)。 The internet went crazy, and rappers
all over the industry rushed to their mics to record a response. The thing is,
all K-Dot said is he’s the best rapper. Everyone took it personally, and that’s
exactly what he was going for. The lesson to learn from this is that not
everything is about you, and if you’re easily upset, someone will use that to
their advantage.


16、Stop Talking


it’s best to just STFU – especially in relationships. I can’t even count how
many times I created an issue that didn’t need to be an issue simply because I
opened my mouth. Even if what you want to say is important, just shut up and
ride it out. You can say more with your actions than words, and you can’t listen
when you’re talking.
