Quit that boring / bad paid job

One of the biggest mistakes people usually make is sticking to a tedious or bad paid job or career. This can be demotivating and makes it hard to achieve our goals. If you are not happy with your current career, it is essential to find something else that you love doing or that simply makes you feel satisfied and gratified. I’m not saying to quit your job today – girls gotta eat right? – but sometimes we’re just lazy cause we already earn a salary and we don’t feel motivated enough to find a new job opportunity, so we procrastinate… and time passes by. Findind a new job requires time and effort, but it will be worth it in the end.

Take (some) risks and challenges

Another common mistake people make is failing to take on risks and challenges. Someone said that happiness is outside your comfort zone and there is nothing more true. The fear of taking risks and challenges can hold you back from achieving your goals and living the life you want. You don’t need to force yourself all at once, but it is essential to push yourself out of your comfort zone a little at a time, starting by little things then challenging yourself in bigger ones, and take on new challenges to help you grow as a person and discover new things about yourself.

Improve planning skills

Planning your life, setting goals and tracking your improvements is a great habit to live more motivated and be more focused on what you do and have to. This may seem unnecessary, but people with great planning skills have a better overall view of what they need to improve to get a better life. When you write down goals and track your improvements, it is easier to understand what you have to change or get rid of in your life. This is why I updated for you the planner I made the last year and created the free printable 2022 monthly and weekly goals planner, this time in two versions: floral and gold ones.

Don’t be afraid of moving to a new place

Okay, this is not for everyone here, but some of you may be afraid of moving to a new place, even if you feel that you’re not happy where you are, and it can be so terrible since it will stuck you in a life of regrets. If you feel that the place you live in is no longer giving you the opportunities you need (or need to understand if it’s time for you to move), it is just time to change, no matter how much you are afraid of. Sometimes the people we love are not enough to feel happy and “at home” and you shouldn’t judge yourself if you feel that your happy place would be somewhere else. This doesn’t mean that you have to completely turn your life upside down, there is always a solution you can find or maybe the perfect place is not even so far (and with Compass it gets easier to find it), just don’t let your routine decide for you. 

Forget about old bad habits

Additionally, many people fail to quit old habits when improving their lives. Therefore, it is vital to make changes in your life and focus on leaving all the bad habits as soon as possible. The last years have been so hard due the pandemic situation and it may be even more difficult to get a better and healthy life after the lockdown, but there is always a way if you want to!

Connect with positive people

Finally, people make another mistake when trying to lead a better life by failing to connect with like-minded people. You’ve probably never seen it this way, but it can be crucial as it will help you achieve your goals and stay motivated. If you have around toxic people who always criticize you or make you feel wrong then you won’t be able to find happiness and the right motivation in life.  So, be careful of the people you choose in your life, they should be honest with you when needed, but supportive and positive and so should be you with them, too.

In conclusion, people can make mistakes when trying to lead a better life, so start living the best version of yourself with the help of the tips above and download the free printable 2022 monthly and weekly goals planner to set new challenges and truck your achievements. You will soon begin to see positive changes in your life!
