Not focusing on yourself and your needs: The thing that becomes a blocker in the path of your happiness is the fact that we often ignore our own needs to ensure that we are not viewed as selfish. We tend to ignore our own needs and soon this starts making us unhappy. For one to be happy, it is also important to focus on your own needs besides doing things for others.

Listen to your inner self: The fact is each of us comes equipped with a kind of radar inside us that guides us to do the right thing but as we grow and evolve, we tend to ignore it. This could be one of the things that is causing you unhappiness and you need to start trusting your inner self and your gut instincts.

Keeping away from the darker side of life: This may seem somewhat contrary but the fact is life is about a balance of light and darkness. It is only when you embrace the darker aspects of life, will light be able to enter your life.  To win your battles, you need to pick them with care or else there is no use fighting. By facing darkness and fears you will be able to overcome them and forge ahead.

Resisting the present: The thing is most of us either cling on to the past or hold out for the future but the truth is all about the present. By refusing to live in the here and now, we are only spoiling one of the most precious things in our life. While the present may not be perfect it is very important to embrace it with your whole heart and soul.

Fearful of doing the wrong things: It is important in life to make mistakes to learn new lessons and forge ahead. That is why one of the things that we need to stop doing is being scared of making mistakes. The more you resist making decisions and participating in life’s activities the more likely you are to be away from being in a state of happiness.

Striving to be perfect: The thing is most of us spend most of our lives in a drive to be perfect because we feel that this is one of the things that will make others approve of us. The more time and effort we spend on being perfect the more unhappy we tend to be. it therefore makes sense for us to accept that we are perfect the way we are not strive for the so called perfect standards that people have.

Pursuing happiness: The thing is we all need to feel and be happy but chasing happiness is like chasing the rainbow; impossible to achieve. It is important to be loose and let things go so that they settle into what they are supposed to be. in fact giving up the pursuit of happiness will actually result in happiness coming closer to us.

Taking control of life: Ask yourself – how much of what goes around you can you control?  Nothing can be controlled and you will soon realize that the one thing that you can actually exert control on is the way you think and feel. That is why even if it feels horrible and weird, it is better to let things go and try not to control them.

Postponing the dream: We always have a dream that we spend hours thinking about and longing for. But because following them seems scary, we tend to put off following the very dream that you long for and want. Doing this however, is blocking you from being as happy as you should have been.

Attempting to change others: We always feel responsible for the way people around us are and we try to fix them. But this is another thing that is blocking your happiness and you will realize that trying to fix others is not something that you can do. In fact, each person is responsible for himself or herself and another person can change things for them. They have to want to fix themselves for that to happen.

Happiness is not easy or does not come flippantly but this does not mean that being happy is impossible and that is why you need to do all the things and make all the changes required to achieve this.
