20 Signs Youíre Succeeding In Life Even If You Donít Feel You Are
COMMUNICATION MOTIVATION BY CAROL MORGAN

We all feel like failures from time to time. While this is a normal feeling, you have to find a way to see yourself and your life from a different perspective. Sometimes we ignore the ďlittle things.Ē Just because you are not a millionaire, donít live in a mansion, and you donít drive a fancy car, that doesnít mean youíre a failure. In fact, itís quite the contrary.

Here are 20 signs that you are succeeding in life:

1. Your relationships are less dramatic than they used to be.
Drama is not maturity. As we age, we should develop maturity. So maybe your relationships were drama-filled in your past, but if you have moved beyond that, then you are successful.

2. You are not afraid to ask for help and support any more.
Asking for help does not equal weakness. In fact, it is a strength. No person has ever succeeded in isolation. It takes teamwork to accomplish goals. Asking or help is a sign that you have grown as a person.

3. You have raised your standards.
You donít tolerate bad behavior any more Ė from other people, or even yourself. You hold people accountable for their actions. You donít spend time with the ďenergy vampiresĒ in your life anymore.

4. You let go of things that donít make you feel good.
No, this is not narcissistic even though it might seem like it. Self-love is success. Love yourself enough to say Ďnoí to anything that doesnít make you happy, doesnít serve your purpose, or drags you down.

5. You have moments where you appreciate who you see in the mirror.
Ideally, you should appreciate who you see in the mirror at every moment. But even if that doesnít happen, if you do it more than you used to, then that is success. Love yourself. You are awesome.

6. You have learned that setbacks and failure are part of self-growth.
Not everyone can have success 100% of the time. Thatís just not realistic. Life is about victories and losses. So look at your setbacks as stepping stones to something better. In reality, there really is no such thing as as setback. Itís all just part of a wondrous journey.

7. You have a support system that includes people who would do anything for you.
If you have figured out the people who ďhave your backĒ and recognized the ones who only pretend that they do, then you have succeeded. This is a painful realization, but once you learn to see the signs of betrayal, you can stay away from those people.

8. You donít complain much.
Because you know there really is nothing to complain about. Unless you really have gone through some horrific life experience and had unimaginable losses, most of what we all experience on a day-to-day basis is just mundane. And successful people know that. And they live in a space of gratitude.

9. You can celebrate othersí successes.
Just because other people succeed, that doesnít make you a failure. Applaud the people who rise to the top. The more positive energy you give to other peopleís victories, the more you will create your own.

10. You have passions that you pursue.
You are not stagnant. You know you have something wonderful to contribute to the world. You have unique talents and gifts. Not only do you know that, you pursue it.

11. You have things to look forward to.
If you donít have exciting things going on in your life that you are eagerly anticipating, then you are slowly dying inside. Successful people create goals that they are passionate about pursuing. They let this excitement drive their life.

12. You have goals that have come true.
Even though ďfailuresĒ are a part of life, you have stuck to your goals and dreams long enough to make them come to fruition. You have  some tastes of victory. It fuels you.

13. You have empathy for others.
A person without empathy is dead inside. Empathy equals spreading love and positive energy into the world. Successful people know this. They love others as if they are family.

14. You love deeply and open yourself up to be loved by others.
Love is risky, and sometimes scary for people. Itís the one thing we all strive for, but itís also intimately tied to the one thing we fear the most Ė rejection. If you open your heart enough to love and be loved, then you are successful.

15. You refuse to be be a victim.
You know that life doesnít always happen to you. Many times, you are a co-creator of your life experiences. Successful people know this and refuse to be kept down by life experiences. The rise up and conquer anyway.

16. You donít care what other people think.
You know you canít please everyone. You know that the standards with which society judges people is many times unrealistic. So you just keep true to yourself and love the person you are.

17. You always look on the bright side.
Life can be full of disappointments Ė if you choose to see them that way. Otherwise, they are learning opportunities. No negative experience is ever wasted as long as you learn from it.

18. You accept what you canít change.
Letís face it Ė there many things you canít change in life. All you can change is how you view what happens. If you can change your negative perspective on situations to a positive one, then you are successful.

19. You change what you can.
And letís face it again Ė there are many things you can change in life. Successful people donít sit around accepting the negatives that are changeable. They get out there and do something about it!!

20. You are happy.
To me, this is the ultimate definition of success. It doesnít matter what the balance is in your bank account, how big your house is,  or how many fancy vacations you take. If you are happy, then you are succeeding in life.

Even if you donít see yourself in many of these 20 things, donít fret. Itís okay. Be happy that you see yourself in just a few. In time, the rest will come. You just need to keep moving onward and upward.
