8 Things People Do That Make Their Life Miserable

I think we are all guilty of standing in our own way from time to time, but did you know that a lot of people do things that actually make their life miserable?

I am not talking about making unwise decisions.  I am talking about the things people do unintentionally or sub-consciously.

Here Is Some Free Advice On Life

Below I have outlined 8 of these things that if you do them will definitely make your life miserable.  Read them, know them, and then make sure you never do them.

1. When you get a compliment, dismiss it and the person saying, ”Oh no, it wasn’t much.”

2. When you complete a task, always find things you should have done differently.

3. Work as hard as you can never taking time for play and enjoyment because you know when you get to heaven, God is going to say,”You didn’t work enough.”

4. When you complete a project, don’t take time to enjoy the accomplishment, moving right into the next task.

5. Think only of yourself because you know that’s what it is all about anyway.

6. Tell yourself your value as a human being is in what you accomplish and all the material things you can accumulate.

7. Don’t spend time on relationships because you have work to do.  And finally if that doesn’t make you miserable this will….

8. Focus on the things you don’t have rather than the things in your life you do have.

If you want to move from misery to miracles, do the opposite of everything I have listed here.

Author Bessie Stanley wrote a great poem, which I have included below.

That Person Is A Success

Who has lived well laughed often and loved much; Who has gained the respect of intelligent men and the love of children;

Who has filled their niche and accomplished his task;

Who leaves the world better than they found it, whether by an improved poppy or a perfect poem or a rescued soul;

Who never lacked appreciation of earth’s beauty or failed to express it;

Who looked for the best in others and gave the best they had.

I hope you find ways to live life as a miracle rather than in misery.

Be a Miracle



  1. The fourth statement really resinates with me. I was in total despair, even to the point of thoughts of suicide, when I was going through divorce. I wanted everything to go away and be alright immediately, but I had to learn to take each step of progress back to life as a victory. I learned to stop and celebrate the little steps as much as the Big “milestones”.
