4. Resisting Feedback

Start viewing feedback as an opportunity for growth. Embrace it, learn from it and use it to improve your skills and performance.

5. Comparing Yourself to Others

6. Sticking to Your Comfort Zone

7. Fearing Failure 

Start viewing failure as a stepping stone rather than a stumbling block. Don't let the fear of failure stop you from taking risks and pursuing your ambitions.

Happiness at work is not a distant dream or a lofty goal. It is a journey of self-discovery and growth that starts with saying goodbye to these behaviors.
