This kind of constant action and lack of clarity can make it easy to believe that you are a failure.
But if you are too busy changing the world, you never make time for yourself. You never make the time to step back and see the success you really are. Here are some signs to validate, that maybe you are successful – more than you know. I wont go in to full detail but these will open your eyes.
1. You aren’t controlled by your income.
You might not be able to afford a Rolex, but if you aren’t living from week-to-week you are a success.
2. You don’t seek praise.
Being able to do your part without looking for praise is a strong sign of mental security.
3. You suffer less drama.
Look back even just a year in your life: are you finding that things are quieter?
4. You have a plan.
Success is built on structure and having a long-term plan to get to where you want to be.
5. You crave more.
Ambition and a desire for knowledge points to a determined individual who seeks to better themselves.
6. You are an early bird.
You know the old saying. The early bird catches the worm. When you find that you are jumping out of bed, ready to attack the day, you can probably point to a successful lifestyle and personality.
7. You are socially active.
If you are able to get involved in many different situations with a variety of social circles you can point to a healthy and harmonious life.
8. You offer mutual respect.
Success tends to come from your own experiences in life, including going through stresses and difficulties. If you understand the value of treating others with respect, you already harness one of the most important aspects of success.
9. You wish to help others.
Again, your success in this world goes far beyond the cost of your car. If you are able to provide people with a solid base to work with, and act as a pillar of strength for colleagues, success is not too far off.
10. You are driven.
Anybody without an engine and a willingness to get through the hard times and the difficulties will struggle to succeed.
11. You possess confidence without arrogance.
If you can show some genuine humility for others, whilst inspiring those who are struggling, you are already a successful individual
12. You have fought back.
Being able to battle back from a position of failure to success–any success–is a sign of an iron-willed individual with the nous to succeed in life.
13. You strive to improve.
When you always look to improve on the previous performance, even if it was spectacular, you are setting yourself up to be a long-term success.
14. You have discipline.
Learning how not to make mistakes and how to make the right call is vital to being a long-term success.
15. You preach patience.
Patience is a virtue that the most successful people emit on a large-scale basis. Without patience, it can be hard to ever make the type of impact that you originally intended in any work or personal environment.
16. You can say no.
If you are able to say no then you have already avoided the need to please everyone. This is the sign of a successful individual.
17. You manage time well.
Time management is a sign of long-term success, and being able to use the time in any given day to be productive is the sign of a successful person. If you are capable of dealing with plenty of tasks in any given day? You are already a success.
18. You have successful friends.
Success around you is the easiest way to inspire yourself. If you find yourself surrounded by those who are also doing well it can be easier to actually improve and develop yourself in the right manner.
19. You don’t blame others.
You have reached a point in your life where you fully understand what it means to take ownership of your actions and not target others for your frustrations and failures.
20. You don’t waste your time.
Your greater sense of direction empowers you to know what you want without needing other´s approval.
21. You are assertive.
Explaining your reasons in a clear manner is essential for others to understand that you are an individual with your own thoughts and needs.
22. You stay positive.
By being positive and honest at pursuing your goals you will unleash the true achiever within you.
23. You take care of your health.
Quitting harmful activities that stop you from working towards the brighter future you have always dreamed is a powerful step. It will turn you into a stronger individual with greater drive and willpower.
24. You don’t seek a relationship to solve your personal issues.
It is not a good idea to avoid helping the other towards becoming a better person just because it is easier not doing it or because “things are just fine as they are”.
25. You are mature.
It’s always important to remind yourself that success isn’t something that can be judged so materially. If you are able to look at your lifestyle and understand that you do things in a mature, social and effective manner then you are already far more successful than any slap on the back will ever make you feel.
Success comes from acceptance of your own skills and abilities, not what somebody you might never have met before tells you. – Carlos Sabarich
