4. Stop spending more than you earn

You really do not want to grow old without having money in the bank or something to fall back on. Try and save or invest and see that you’re the little money you can put outside grows. This secret is popular amongst the rich and the famous.

5. Stop making excuses

You want to have kids, build a house, write a book or see the world. Don’t make any excuses about it. Follow your dreams and focus on how you can make these things real!

6. Stop being in the wrong relationships

You are an average of your five closest friends. You do not need to be in a toxic relationship. Rather be in relationships that build you up and make you become better. Always filter your relationships.

7. Stop picking things over experiences

There is the allure of having luxurious possessions and buying gadgets. But if you want to be happier and cherish some memorable moments you should invest in experiences.

8. Stop beating yourself up

Yes you are going to make mistakes and many of the things you thought were right might have turned out wrong. We are all caught in our folly sometimes, but there is no sense in beating yourself about it.

9. Stop trying to please everyone

Yes you may try to please some people, perhaps when it counts. Yet you should know that you can never please everyone. Rather the best person to please should be yourself.

10. Stop spending your time poorly

Time management is key to making your 50s amazing. Make your time count. Read books, travel and learn. You should not be consumed in the wrong activities or that does not take you in the direction your life must go.

11. Stop being un-thankful

We should all be thankful for something. Even the small things that have been offered to you should be enough to spur you into being grateful.

12. Stop comparing yourself to others

We all have different genes and are meant to live different lives. What applies to X doesn’t apply to Y. Try living your life rather than comparing yourself to others.

13. Stop trying to buy happiness

Happiness cannot be bought. Many things that will make you happy are free and reachable. Rather than letting the world define what happiness should mean for you, state your position clearly.

14. Stop feeling sorry for yourself

There is no need in playing the victim all the time. Rather accept responsibility for what goes wrong and move on.

15. Stop envying others

You would gain nothing from being jealous of others rather your self esteem and ego would be bruised. Understand that you are unique in a beautiful way.

16. Stop trying to take the easy way out

Accomplishments that are worthwhile and enriching do take time and hard work. You should focus on seeing your tasks and projects to completion and fruition rather than looking for the easy way out.

17. Stop finding faults in others

As much as you can forgive yourself for your mistakes, learn to forgive others and let go of wrongs. No one is perfect and finding faults in others doesn’t help your confidence.

18. Stop running away from problems

It is always easier to turn your back and flee from things that seem to tough to handle. Yet defining happiness when you reach 50 will require you to have faced many of your problems rather than running away from them.

19. Stop leaning on others to make you happy

Your happiness should be determined by you and not by others standard of you. Try and be tough and easy on yourself as well.

20. Stop asking the wrong questions

You won’t want to be consumed in the “what ifs?” and “why me?” Ask the right questions that would solve problems like “what can I do?” “What do I need?” and you would be on your way to an amazing 50s.
