Are You Picky One?
Picky is the word, associated with stubbornness, childishness and being choosy. I like the last word: choosy. It means that we know that we want. We have our opinions what we want to reach in our lives, what we want to have now and in future. We pick our time, our friends. We do not let circumstances rule our worlds. We are hosts of our journeys.
The Advantage of Being Picky
Of course, if we do not diligently the research, we can be stuck with our phantasies. We would sit in one place and complain, why nobody brings our wanted results. Being picky gives the advantage towards others because we have the understanding what we want. When we compose pickiness with knowledge and willingness to reach our destination, it can be a good trait.
What to Pick?
We pick our friends, roommates; we schedule our time. We choose what to study, what do we want to reach in future. Pickiness can push us toward our dreams because we do not spend time for longing with our decisions. We take action. Being flexible and at the same time planning our schedule, we can reach far more away, compare with people, who are content with everything that life gives them.
What Means Pickiness to Us?
Pickiness means that we want just best for ourselves, our family, friends and what is most important for the whole planet. The best means good mental and physical health, prosperity, ability to help less fortunate. It means that we surround ourselves with positive thoughts, which lead us to the better life.
Be Responsible and Picky
We responsible for everything, what happens in our lives. It means that we are owners of our decisions and actions. When we are active in our lives, we can reach heights, which previously seemed big as mountains. Concentrating towards these things, when we know that they are best for us, pushes us to be on the path of improvement constantly.

I love your take on picky-ness, it is definitely something to be proud of! Some of the most successful people are the pickiest. They got to where they are because they don’t settle for something that only meets some of their goals, they don’t rest until they obtain everything they want. This is a great way to live life, by being “choosy” and never settling, always moving forward and reaching all of your goals. I’m very inspired by this to keep pursuing my own goals!
Hello Mark. I am glad that you liked this blog. Sometimes it is not easy to be different but on end you can be content with yourself because you did what it seemed best for you. Thank you, best wishes, Nemira
There is absolutely nothing wrong at all with being picky. When you’re picky (or choosy), this only means that you have done your homework and you will not be settling for any less that you deserve. When you choose wisely, you tend to get better results. Kudos to you for being picky.
Hello Melinda. In our world, where so many advices how to dress, behave and what to eat, it is good to have your own opinion. Thank you for your support, all the best, Nemira.
Lol, being picky means you are having standards in life. It also means you are a person of value because you don’t allow any random person into your life that easily. I love this post by telling us why we should be picky in our life.
Hope you can elaborate more on the how and specifics. Any way love your post@
Hello here, thank you for visiting my website. I think that being picky shows a trait of your character. You know what you want. Nowadays, when TV, friends, family have different opinions and view of life, is not so easy to keep on your dreams and goals. Being in crowd is good when you watch performing Avicii, but reaching for your goals, it does not work. Why? Because everybody is different with their wishes, wants and needs. It is nothing wrong, but we all know what it is best for us, just sometimes we are too shy or not able to catch what is wrong with us, why do not fit with crowd. We need to work diligently, follow our passions.

I agree with you that being picky has some advantages. Especially when you are choosing something that is best for you. I myself is picky when it comes to choosing the right outlet for my hard earned money. I don’t just spend on things that I know has no benefit for me. Thanks for your thoughts. It is good to hear that being picky is not bad at all times.
Hello John. I agree with your thoughts, that we need to take care of ourselves knowing what it is best for us. I mean the best in all areas of our lives. We live once. It is better to have nice things, which are important to us. They will serve longer. They will bring good energy to us because we choose them. When we follow our hearts and do what is best for us, we will be happy. When we are happy, our family, friends will be content and satisfied.
Being picky means that we do have opinion and we know what do we want from live. We take responsibility to our hands. We achieve success as persons not as crowd. It means that we need to be picky when choosing friends, surroundings, schools and lifestyle.
All the best, Nemira.
I would have to put myself in this picky category. I spend a lot of time doing research to find what I want. Then I do whatever it takes to make it happen. No one else is going to do it for you. If we take it one step at a time eventually we will achieve our goals.
Welcome to the club. I guess if we know what do we want from life, we always will be picky.
All the best, Nemira.
I really enjoyed your blog post. I like the fact how you have emphasis on “picky”. It makes it clear as to what your “lesson” is of the post. My favorite part is where you tell the reader to be “responsible and picky”. We are responsible for all our actions.
Your overall layout is very clear and professional. I like your blog a lot.
Hello CJ, thanks for visiting and for comment. I really appreciate it. Yes, we sometimes forgot that we are responsible for our lives. Nobody else could know what is best for us. Deep inside us is a feeling or sense, which tells us to which direction we suppose to go. We need carefully pick our goals and dreams because we are not alone. We are influenced by other people opinions, by other events. Anyway, we are unique as everybody else.
All the best to you, cheers, Nemira.
I love being a picky person. It sometimes drives the people around me crazy but at the end of the day I prefer do things in a way that will benefit me in the future. I like your take on being picky as it tells people that they do not have to settle for just anything but rather what is best for them.
Hello, thanks for input. Yes, sometimes people forget that they are special persons. We all are unique in our way. Nothing wrong with what, just everybody has own path and we need to listen our inner voice or how somebody calls it an intuition. We need to be picky, look for our best interests that we could develop our best traits and reach our goals. At the same time we can better to serve others, because we took care of ourselves.
Thank you, all the best, Nemira.
Hey there it’s Alexey. After all, a wonderful, short article on the different advantages of being a picky person. I have to agree with you with what you have said. Being picky will actually push you into taking more action on a daily basis and will get you closer to your goals.
Hello, Alexey, thanks for the comment. Sometimes I thought maybe I need to go with the crowd because not every day we can meet people who are brave and can stand for themselves. Sometimes I feel lonely because role models are far away. Anyway, it is just moments. After it, I think that to listen to intuition and choose things that are best for us, it is the best option. Nobody can live lives for us, just we are responsible for our decisions.
All the best to you, thanks, Nemira.
Wow your article really was an eye-opener when discussing the meaning of one’s being picky in life. As stated in the first sentence it would be easy to associate the word pickiness with a person being stubborn, standoffish, moody, difficult-to-get-along-with and other negative connotations.
But instead you provided that last word – choosy and how when thinking of the two in connection being picky can be a good thing for a person.
When you choose to do something for your own good and you’re also willing to work and be dedicated towards success – like in an online business, being picky can be a positive train in a person.
We always get to choose our own course in life, it’s that for many people they make the wrong decisions.
I agree being picky or having the willingness to make that one powerful choice to succeed in life can be awesome if one reflects on it, takes that challenge and turn it into a set of goals to, in end lead that individual to have a fruitful life!
Great article, Nemira!
Hello Jeff, thanks for input. For me the pickiness is a trait, which is must to have for everybody if we want to reach our goals. There are so many distractions and temptations that it can interupt our work. I think that it has some similarities with focus on our dreams or keeping the same direction when we know where do we go.
Thanks for visiting website, all the best, Nemira
I completely agree being picky is an advantage. You need to be choosy in order to find out what it is you want. Once you know what you want its hard to get distracted from that. You make a great point about being picky and responsible. That’s very important to remember.
Hello Jorge, thanks for the comment. I think that people undervalue themselves. They forget that they do here, on this precious Earth. They waste own talents, they are shy or too lazy. The time is a most valuable thing. We can not please everybody because it can not be done. People are different. Tastes and hobbies, the view of life are different. We need to choose that is best for us and take an action towards our goals. Pickiness means that we choose that is good for us without harm to others. We know that we want and we go after it.
All the best, Nemira.
