Are you feeling unsure of your life? Have you found yourself in a situation where you are always comparing yourself with others? That could be an indication that you are not happy with your life, and it could be keeping you away from thriving in your personal life.

So many people are afraid of putting themselves out there. Well, getting unstuck is all about making those tiny decisions and taking action. You have to move away from what you don’t want and towards what you do want. Some people do not know what they want.

Nevertheless, you should move away from those toxic situations until you figure out precisely what you want. Here are the four biggest mistakes that are hindering you from thriving in your personal life.

Associating with the Wrong People

The adage goes, “show me your friends, and I tell you who you are.” As such, there is no question that the people we allow ourselves to associate with will dramatically shape our lives and what we become in the future.

If the people around you have values contrary to yours, do not expect to thrive in the life you have always wanted to live. If you’re going to soar, take that leap of faith and surround yourself with eagles.

Overthinking Every Tiny Detail and Focusing on Your Fears

Ever found yourself in a situation where all you can think about are things that might go wrong? Are there constant “what if” questions popping into your mind? What if you changed this to “what’s the worst that can happen?”

Keep reciting this line until you have said aloud all your fears. Instead of focusing on the negatives, divert your mind to the positives, start planning for that event you have been scared to start, write that article and publish it, speak or hit record, or go live. What people don’t realize is that what you do doesn’t have to be perfect to make an impact.

Refusing to Learn

When we are going through crushing, painful times, there are lessons we are supposed to learn. Unfortunately, most of us miss out on these things. If you find yourself continually regretting the past, that means you are not learning the right lessons.

Some people usually focus on the wrong things in life. You point fingers over a fault that is entirely yours. Learning the right lessons will uplift, empower, and strengthen you, as opposed to pushing you down. If we do not shift our energies to things that build us up and force us to be better, we will continue to bloody our heads against the same brick walls. Learn lessons that will help you thrive in your personal life.

Lack of Self Belief

Many people often talk down on themselves and out of doing things. You neglect your potential and how good you are at completing tasks when you do this.

Showing up “as you are” is the best gift you can ever give to yourself. Don’t look outside; everything you need is right inside of you. Simply put, your outer part usually reflects your inner world; in other words, if you believe in yourself, others will believe in you, too.


It is high time you stopped blaming others and started owning up your mistakes. You are the reason why you are not thriving in your personal life.

Look around you and cut off that bad energy, those bad habits, bad thoughts, and negative vibes, and before you know it, you will be living your best life.
