Don’t you sometimes have moments when you feel that you are failing in life? Do you sometimes think and say, “I have finally hit rock bottom”? Each one of us feels like that once in a while, even if there are many things that prove you are actually improving and doing better in life. So what are these things?
1- You are less whiny. When you face obstacles and misfortune, you don’t complain like you used to do. Instead you set a plan or a course of action to apply and follow through.
2- You don’t feel envious about others’ success. Feeling envious or unhappy about other’s success means you don’t have enough self esteem, and that you don’t believe you are capable of success yourself. In short, you have achieved enough success that you don’t feel envious about the success of others anymore.
3- You don’t hesitate to say no more often. If you are pressured to do something you don’t want, you don’t hesitate to say no. And this didn’t use to be the case before. This is a good indication that you are strong enough not to be pushed around by others.
4- Your goals are more defined, and so is the path you are following to make them real. A sign of success and improvement is that you know what you want from life, and what exactly you should do to achieve it. Even if you find that to be difficult, just being like this means you are successful.
5- There are true friends who back you up and support you. Because, this means you know what true friendship is like, and that you have managed to find true friends who help you and support you. This is no easy feat, so you are successful if you do it.
