stop being useless and raise your standard

The problem starts when you start to compare yourself to others. You start to compare someone’s best to your worst and get more depressed. If you need to stop being useless, you need to stop the comparison.

Comparison is the root of all thoughts of being useless and worthless. Comparison is an enemy of joy. Comparing yourself to others is responsible for your low confidence and self-esteem.

Comparision always puts you in a bizarre scenario which leads to an increase in your stress level. So if you want to raise your standard of life then you should stop comparing people with you.

5. Live in present -Don’t take the stress in life

If you living in your past you live in depression or if you live in your future then you live an anxious life, so live in the present to live a peaceful life.

Neither stress doesn’t let you go anywhere nor anxiety of the future could change your life, in fact, a stressful mind gives birth to suicidal thoughts. Believe me, everything will be right one day and don’t take stress for the thing that can’t be changed. Stress makes your thinking narrow-minded.

Don’t think too much about your past or future, just live in the present and do the most important work now.

Stop regretting the past, make your life the best.

6. Change your daily schedule

Start small, start with day one.

Your living standard depends on how you live your day. If you did not organize your day you can’t organize your life. All success and failure start from a day, maybe today is the day.

Write down your daily schedule and compare it with what you want to be in your life. Change your bad habits to the good ones.

It is not possible that you manage to match the level in one or two days, it will definitely take time, try to match the level day by day. Making a little progress each day to meet the requirements will help you to achieve your goal.

7. Engage yourself in work

In simple words, a person is useless if he/she is not good for anything and if you want to remove this useless tag from yourselves or stop being useless, you need to raise your standard of living, and it could be done by assigning a task to you.

Engage yourself in an activity or assign work to you because all we know is An empty mind is the devil’s workshop. Don’t let these suicidal thoughts affect your life.

If you don’t find any work to do, engage yourself in a self-care routine or start working on your dreams.

8. Grow your desire

Grow your desire, whether it is your favorite food, favorite sport, outfit of favorite color, or whatever you have a desire that you avoided for a long time.

Turn spotlight to your passion, dream, or whatever you have ever wished for. To live again you need to live your desires again.

It does not depend on whatever is your age, you are in your 50s or 20s, your desire is possible or not, give time to it, water the seed of your desire that planted in your heart.
