5 Signs That You Will Be Unhappy In Your Future

Sure, no one knows what the future holds.

But then there’s plenty that our present can reveal about how our life will pan out in the next few years and decades.

This is what makes our ‘this moment’– in which you’re breathing and reading this — so VERY much important. Because your future is predicated at this moment.

There’s a reason, after all, cliché ideas like “live in present” and “don’t dwell on the past” are so rigorously pushed by the successful and happy individuals.

Audit your present. What does it tell you about how your future is going to be like?

Can’t tell?

Here are 5 signs that you will be unhappy in your future:

1. You’re surrounded by negative friends

Your friends have a massive influence on your life. And this is truer today than ever when you’re connected to them 24/7.

Their ideas, opinions, values, and personalities will sway your own traits and attributes.

Meaning, if you’re surrounded by “friends” who are pessimists, ignorant, insecure and non-doers, you will turn out to be just like them.

On the other hand, if you’re spending your time with friends who are ambitious, kind, encouraging and positive — your personality will be groomed accordingly, which will eventually enable you to achieve more and be happier.

It’s really true: You’re the average of five people you spend most of your time with.

In the future, you will regret not spending most of your time with good friends who made you feel good and pushed you towards your goals.

2. You’re waiting for a “perfect” moment or opportunity

There never will be a “perfect” moment or opportunity for the kind of change you’re looking for in your life.

You will never have all things aligned per your needs and preference before you take the step that will make your life better.

Things will always be complicated. There will always be a “but” when you’re trying to bring that change in your life.

Be it leaving your job to launch your own business, planning to start a family or breaking up with the person who you love no more — you have to do what needs to be done with whatever opportunity or circumstance you have.

Because your “perfect” moment will never arrive. And 20 years from now you would wish you did something today without waiting for your ‘perfect’.

3. You’re sacrificing your dreams for your parents’

Indian children, in particular, need to realize the difference between respecting parents and saying yes to their every wish when deep inside they are suffering!

It’s essential that you listen to your mum-dad. Fulfill all their wishes. Provide them all that they demand, and then some more.

However, it’s also important that whilst taking care of your parent’s happiness, you mustn’t sacrifice your own dreams and desire. Handle the situation well without losing your cool. Have a heart-to-heart talk with your parents, make them understand the situation.

You don’t want to be an engineer. You want to be a street artist.

You don’t want to be a doctor. You want to be a singer.

Go for it! Good luck!

4. You’re not working hard enough

Nothing great can ever be achieved without hard work. No one in history has managed to succeed without a ridiculous amount of hard work.

In fact, the equation has always been incredibly simple: The more hard and smart work you put in, the more success you will have.

Sadly, so many people continue to read countless self-help books and articles to find some “tricks” and “hacks” to be successful. Don’t be one of them!

Sadly, so many people continue to read countless self-help books and articles to find some “tricks” and “hacks” to be successful. Don’t be one of them!

Because if you don’t, years from now when you will realize that it was all just a matter of a little more work. And this will make you unhappy.

5. You care about other people’s opinions

This is a poison of our society right now.

So many people are living their lives based on someone else’s opinions. They care about what others think of them more than their own realities.

They make their life’s biggest decisions based on “what others will say”. They let the number of likes on Instagram dictate their feelings and self-worth.

And there’s a good chance that you’re one of them. You care about him, her, them, the society. A large part of what you do in your days depends on how you’re perceived by others.

Of course, this is the worst way to live your life. And unhappiness will inevitably plague your future.


There are many things that we all are doing (or not) at present that will negatively influence our future. And yet, we’re so hooked into the “now” that we do not care about this.

Do you want to have a happy and fulfilling future?

Take control of your present. You still have time to fix your future. Just take control.
