11 Mistakes You Make When Life Doesn't Go As Planned

Every person’s worst nightmare is when his plans don’t end up as he expected. There’s nothing more frustrating than going against all odds to risk your resources and pride for your dreams but not meeting the desired outcome. Aside from feeling disappointed in yourself, you would feel stupid and pathetic for going through all that trouble only to go back from scratch, or worse, move the finish line farther away.

Your ego is hurt because your sincere efforts are put to waste, and you don’t want anybody to know you failed. You start keeping your adversity as a secret to protect your reputation, and this is one of the reasons you won’t grow. Clouds of negative thought hover over the little hope and then you start taking in the doubts to break you even harder. Little do you know, you start believing all these other voices and thinking maybe you’re a fool for chasing after your dream.

When You Feel Worthless, Remember These 14 Things

We all have those days when we feel like nothing when we get too good at telling ourselves we’re never going to be good enough. The feeling of worthlessness doesn’t come instantly; it’s rather an accumulation of negative feelings that come usually during a bad day and sumps up when we’ve reached the limit of what we can tolerate in our self-esteem. This feeling is very common in your twenties and it hits you where you least expect it. There will come a day when everyone around you got everything they wanted, and their happiness just causes you pain, and you hate yourself for it.

One way or another, that feeling of being unworthy of everything is bound to happen, and there’s no way you can prepare for it. Strangely, some people experienced getting that feeling when they’re only a few steps away from achieving their goal and unfortunately, gave up. It’s so powerful, most are willing to throw away years of grinding and hustling to that voice of deceit.

16 Ways to Change Your Nasty Attitude

Change your nasty attitude because it’s the only way to live a better life for yourself. If you continue to live a life with a horrible personality, no one will ever want to get to know you. When you get older, no one will come to visit you when you’re sick. No one will give you food when you run out. No one will be there for you when you’re dead. What you give to others will eventually come back to you.

Why You Shouldn't Tell Anyone About Your Goals

Keeping your goals strictly confidential to yourself or within the bounds of your most trusted few is a smart move everybody should follow. Given the fact that your goals are closely tied with your identity, it’s best to keep it to yourself until the right time comes. A lot of people overshare their goals with strangers or to those whom they want to impress for whatever reasons and it puts them to more harm.

What happens is they prioritize their hunger for self-recognition more than the act of making that goal more than just a dream. This means that  by proclaiming your ambitions, the mind would think you’ve already accomplished your goal because it prefers the good hormones that come out of it than having to work extremely hard (even when that’s what you’re supposed to do). 

What To Do When Your Plans Don't Go Your Way

Along the way, you’re going to commit many, many mistakes. Small or gigantic, you’re going to learn something from that horrible experience once you accept that you were meant to be in that place. You begin to hear what God is trying to tell you once you surrender every burden to Him. You begin to see things more clearly and to breathe more calmly once you understand that you are not just a small part of this gigantic world.
