Bad Habits: 5 Common Bad Habits and How to Correct Them
“Good habits must be practiced everyday” parents, teachers, leaders have to repeat that to their children/students/community.
It is not actually bugging people, but reminding them that we all have to check each other. It is true that sometimes it could be an over-reaction, or being too boring, or being too aggressive, but good manners come with discipline. Tell nicely, accept nicely without waiting for rewards and positive responses. The angels will help at this. You know “the power of good versus evil.” That is why people don’t stop remembering “karma,” because there really is justice. Moreover, redemption is real (whether you like it or not).
Let us start to move and change these 5 Common Bad Habits:
1. Avoid being late and procrastination – It has been a connotation that “American time” means “exactly.” Being late wastes the time of other people and the time they could have used to do other things. Consider people who come on time. They went out their way and blocked other schedules just to be on time to meet with you.
Procrastination is not doing things quickly. It is like “red tape” which curtails progress and terminates other duties other people can work on.
Red tape is a very bad habit.
How to correct: Be considerate of other people. They are working, too. Remember: “Time is money, time is a basic resource.” Please don’t waste time, and let others suffer time for you. It’s something you can do to help others. Work with people nicely.
2. Don’t litter, maintain clean surroundings – Clean surroundings are conducive to progress. Clean surrounding gives a comfortable life to everyone. Cleanliness maintains a healthy living (despite pollution that can’t be avoided) freeing people to appreciate the simplicity of life, and saving them to bigger medical expenses. “Children become inspired seeing the sky as their roof, the ocean their property, and what a beautiful place on earth we could have been.”
How to correct: Don’t litter. Be a good example.
3. Don’t think bad of others. There are options. Of course, you don’t trust yourself too easily on anyone because there are bad guys. But evil forces are conquered by good forces, there are more good guys/people than bad people. Collaborate with good people. Choose your friends and share to them how to be good. If you trust people to be good, pray they meet their goals.
Chances are: More poor people are good people because they can’t steal, they can’t do corruption, they can endure, they haven’t kept things for themselves, they only depend on GOD as their refuge. They don’t even have money to sustain them. Problems come if they have bad leaders/friends/relatives, then some can falter.
How to correct: Think good of people, anyway. Don’t put tags: rich or poor, young or old, just work together.
4. Don’t be selfish. Selfishness leads to destruction. We share, for everyone to benefit. There are limits, know the limits Each one has to work hard and be happy of each other’s accomplishments. Thank God and others, for the small things you get.
How to correct: Try to share what you hold most. As an offering of your love, do good works or little acts of kindness. Your time and talents are offerings, aside from money. Your work is an offering. We are all parts of one body.
5. Don’t be lazy. If you are lazy, you would like to get something that is not yours to survive. You will be envious of others and you would be dishonest to keep your pride.
How to correct: Find work to do. You don’t always need to be paid for work done. Work will love you, if you respect it and share its fruits. Work will give you dignity, even how little you earn. That is your offering to God, and for that you will be happy and contented.
