Are you successful? We all want to be successful in both our personal lives and in business. It is in our very nature to strive for something better. To want more than we currently have and it is not necessarily limited to monetary goals. While success is almost always linked to money, it is not always true. Some people strive to become healthier. Others want to have better relationships with those around them. While others just want to have emotional and mental stability. Success can mean different things to different people yet the effort and dedication they put into achieving success are the same. However, the desire to be successful can become so strong that regardless of what we do, we feel that nothing positive seems to be coming out from all our hard work. We criticize ourselves so much that we become clouded to our own successes.
Having a strong desire and the passion to achieve success is commendable yet it does have one downside. If you are not careful, you’ll become too critical of everything that you do which in turn causes you to lose clarity. You will lose sight of what you have already achieved and forget to appreciate your accomplishments. So instead of actually being happy for your own success, you’ll eventually work yourself to the ground not knowing that you’ve already achieved your goals. How do you know that you are successful?
You can easily adapt
“The only constant in life is change.” Things are not always going to go your way. You understand this and are willing to change things up in order to go forward. You do not fear it. In fact, you are more than willing to step outside your comfort zone to explore and adapt to the changing times. You, for the most part, are not negatively affected by it. Instead of seeing change as something intimidating or starting over from scratch, you see it as new opportunities to improve yourself. When you can easily adapt to any situation, you can call yourself successful.
You are not afraid to fail
If you are not failing, it means you are not trying hard enough. On the flip side, if you welcome the occasional failures, it means that you are successful enough to fail. To successful people, failing means that they are trying something new. Each failure is a lesson that can be used to eventually achieve success. If you are not afraid to try and fail, you can call yourself a success.
