So you have finally made it! Or have you? The markers of success are more difficult to ascertain than you may think. Here are 9 signs that you’re finally successful.
You Now Stay More Positive
Financial freedom frees the emotions as well. Problems don’t hit as hard because you are more secure in your ability to handle them financially. Your attitude is more positive overall, and your relationships become stronger with other people as well.
You Do Have the Resources to Help Others
The stereotype of rich people is that they are self-centered. On the contrary – when people free themselves of their day to day expenses, most of them become more empathetic and likely to help others. If you have the resources to do so, you are successful both financially and mentally.
You Are Willing to Fail
Successful people are far enough ahead that they don’t mind putting resources into a project that might fail. These are usually pet projects that are based on passion and a true inspiration. Interestingly, the supposed “larger risk” makes those projects more likely to succeed because of the passion that is behind them.
You Always Keep a Perspective
The little things bother you much less because you are looking at the big picture. Little problems like locking your keys in the car become humorous rather than a First World tragedy. You realize there is more than one perspective in the world, and you are happy to represent yours.
You Can Ask for Help from Anyone
Successful people understand that they cannot do everything themselves. People who are more successful are more than willing to delegate responsibility for things they do not have an expertise in, and pay well for the privilege.
You Can View Success Without Jealousy
Life is no longer a zero-sum game when you are successful. There are more than enough resources for everyone, and you do not lose when someone else wins. When this is the thought process, you can celebrate the achievements of others.
You No Longer Participate in Drama
Successful people no longer have a need for fruitless arguments in their lives. Most of the time, they are too busy to deal with them, but moreover, they realize that this type of communication does not lead to anything positive even if engaged.
You Think Less of Other People’s Opinions
Successful people have much less to prove than people who are on the rise, and as such, they do not put as much weight on other people’s opinions. You have more satisfaction with your life, and you realize that opinions have literally no effect on the reality that you live.
You Are at Peace With What You Cannot Change
Successful people also realize that the world is a huge place that cannot be changed by one person. There is nothing that a single person can do to stop a flood in a city two hundred miles away, so you stop worrying about it. However, successful people also realize what they can change and take immediate action to do so.
We hope success kisses your feeter at the right time. 🙂
