We all have experienced failures in life. But there is different perspective to see yourself and your life, find that way! Sometimes we ignore the simplest little things. So what if you are not a millionaire or don’t drive a luxury car or don’t live in a mansion! Does that make you a failure? May be its time that you stop comparing yourself with others and start looking at yourself and your own life; when you are succeeding in life, it is itself a winning.
Here are the 10 tell tale signs that you are progressing in life:
- Your relationship are less dramatic than they used to be:
As we grow up, we should develop maturity. Drama is not maturity. Hence, may be your relationship in your past were full of drama, but if you have moved beyond that, it means you are successful.
- You are not afraid to ask for help and support any more:
We must understand that asking for help does not define weakness, in fact, it is strength! No person has ever succeeded in isolation. Teamwork leads to accomplishment of goals. When you ask for help, it is a sign that you have grown up as a person.
- You have raised your standards:
When you realize that you do not tolerate bad behaviour any more, from other people or even from yourself. You hold people accountable for their actions and don’t spend time with the “energy vampires” in your life anymore. You now like to be surrounded by positive people.
- You let go of things that don’t make you feel good:
It might seem like narcissistic, but it is not. Don’t you agree self-love is success? You should love yourself enough to say ‘no’ to anything that doesn’t make you happy or drags you down, doesn’t serve your purpose.
- You have moments where you appreciate who you see in the mirror:
Ideally, it would be great if you appreciate who you see in the mirror at every moment. But even if that doesn’t happen, it is success if you do it more than you used to. Love yourself as you are awesome!
- You have learned that setbacks and failure are part of self-growth:
It is unrealistic approach if you think everyone can have success 100% of the time. Life is about victories and losses that are two sides of the coin. So look at your setbacks as stepping stones to something better, although there is no such thing as setback as it is all just a part of a wondrous journey.
- You have a support system that includes people who would do anything for you:
As you progress in life, if you have figured out the people who “have your backs” and recognized the ones who only pretend that they do, you have succeeded. Though it is a painful realization but once you learn to see the signs of betrayals and unfaithfulness, you can stay away from those people.
- You don’t complain much:
Now you know there really is nothing to complain about. Most of us have really gone through a bad horrific phase of life and had unimaginable losses too. But successful people know what we all experience on a day to day basis is just mundane. They live in a space of gratitude.
- You can celebrate other’s successes:
Other’s success doesn’t make you a failure. You applaud the ones who rise on top. When you are celebrating their success, you give more positive energy to other people’s victories and eventually more energy you will create for your own.
- You have passions that you pursue:
Pursuing to do what you know. You know you have something wonderful to contribute to the world. You are not stagnant!
