If you are spending your time trying to be like others, you begin to lose your real self. This is self-betrayal and it is the worst form of betrayal. What you have in you is enough to take you to greater heights than that of whom you are living to become.
If you have never been commended for doing something great, it is a sign you have been wasting your entire life. You could have been celebrated for being the best student in the class, the best student in your department or even school. These achievements are not limited to academics only, it might be in the community, in church/mosque or among group members. They show that you have been living a profitable life.
What to do: Think about something to achieve and work towards achieving it.
7. YOU BLAME OTHERS FOR YOUR FAILURE
Frank is the best student in your class, while you are an average student. During an examination, you called Frank to teach you but Frank refused.

The question you should ask yourself is “Why can’t I prepare for the examination and pass on my own?”. If you have been doing things like this, it is a sign you are wasting your life.
