1. Keep your big goals and plans secret
It’s totally fine to share and brag about your results and achievements.
Show the world that you achieved that great result; talk about your struggle story, and everything related to the result.
But never share your big goals and plans with others.
If you don’t want to achieve your big goals; tell everyone you know about it and don’t forget to announce them on social media.
When you announce your goals publicly, you get a feeling of satisfaction.
This satisfaction will increase your self-image and makes you feel like you’ve achieved your goal, even though you never took the first step.
This wrong move will make you lose motivation and fail to execute your plan.
Always keep your big goals and plans secret and never share them with anyone.
2. Keep the intimate details of your life secret
You get to know your friend better when they share things related to their life and they understand you more when you share things related to your life.
Sharing is good, but sharing every detail of your life is not good.
Oversharing everything that happens in your life with your best friend is one of the worst things people do.
There are things that you can share, but some things are meant to be kept personal.
Here are the details to never overshare about your life:
Unless you are looking for a solution or doubt a certain thing.
Never share every detail about your sex life with your best friend. If there’s a genuine interest and no sassy judgment, then it’s okay.
Otherwise, keep this part of your life secret.
Many people think they gain others’ respect when they talk about the good things they have done.
But they lose it. A good deed when shared loses its purpose. Let people witness how kind you are, but never talk about it.

3. Never declare how enlightened you are
You probably met a person who talks about how wise and enlightened he is.
Most of these people are just good at talking about how enlightened they are. But their advice is bad.
The more you talk about how enlightened you are, the less enlightened you seem.
How enlightened you are is seen in your behaviors, habits, and words. Not in how you describe yourself.
Most of the people who declare they are enlightened lie. They are not enlightened; they think they are enlightened.
4. Keep your family issues and drama secret
Unless you need advice or need a different point of view. There’s no perfect family.
Every family goes through problems, but that doesn’t mean you have to discuss every issue with others.
Keep your family issues secret. Not everyone wants to know about them or have good intention.
5. Never talk about how heroic you are
The more you make yourself a hero in every story you tell people, the more unpleasant and boring the story becomes.
No one likes listening to a person who has exaggerated self-worth. No one is perfect and that means people make mistakes.
A person who’s always right and a hero is a liar.
A great story is not a story where the main character wins every fight, but a story the main character goes through many losses but ends up winning the last battle.
6. Keep your income secret
If you want others to envy you and try to take you down, show them your income.
Keeping your income secret has many benefits:
- You buy whatever you want and travel in peace
- You avoid unnecessary drama
- You don’t have to always pay for any group gathering
Wealthy people make a lot of money. But you will rarely see them talking openly about how much they make.
Forget the lies you see on the internet where a person can lie and fake their income to get attention.
Most of the fake wealthy people make money only from the attention they get, not the business they run.
7. Keep the unpleasant things you’ve heard about others secret
People dislike a person who talks bad things about others in their absence more than a person who badly judges a person in their presence.
Don’t be the type of person who gossips about others. A person who always talks about others can never be trusted.
