We all make decisions every single day--some good, others bad. But there are some that are all but guaranteed to mess up your life and derail you from the things you want.

Here are some of the worst decisions you should avoid at all cost.

You can control everything.
You won't even try.
You don't have to deal with your problems.
Goals aren't that important.
You're going to wait for the right...
You can afford to neglect important relationships.
You'll change who you are so you can fit in.
You'll cut corners when it comes to excellence.
Risks are too scary.
You can settle for mediocrity.
You give up on yourself.
You allow negativity from the past to linger.
You don't hold respect.
You don't need to practice gratitude.
You can put up with toxic people.
You choose others in place of yourself.
