8. Don’t seek praise, seek criticism.
Criticism builds character and brings a change in you. However, you must be ready to avoid the ego or feeling of being attacked and embarrassed. If you can keep working hard without praise or validation, then you are a more successful individual than you might even know.
9. You have discipline.
Self-discipline is the single most attribute to success. Discipline helps you stay focused, avoid past mistakes, and make the right call. It allows you to push yourself to new heights even when the situation is not comfortable.
10. You are socially active.
Your social circle can have a great impact on the quality of your life. There are various physical and mental benefits of being social such as low blood pressure and low anxiety and depression. Being active in different social circles helps you move forwards towards a healthy and harmonious life by helping each other in a group. You can also pick toxic personalities to avoid them.
11. You offer mutual respect.
Both good and bad experiences are necessary for success. Successful people always respect their life, other people’s lives, and human existence. If you understand the value of treating others with respect, you already harness one of the most important aspects of success.
12. You are assertive
Do you have active listening skills? Are you into open and honest communication always? Do you stay grounded amidst the chaos? Do you know how to pick your battles? You are clear about your thoughts and needs? If yes then you are already successful.
13. You are health conscious.
If you always eat the right food and in the right proportions and avoid activities that are bad for health such as smoking, alcohol abuse, then you are already successful. Besides, you aim to be stronger and hence take out time for exercise, rest, and recreation. Such a habit will turn you into a stronger individual with greater drive and willpower.
14. You seek healthy relationships.
Successful people understand what a healthy relationship is. They tend to justify a relationship rather than using a person to solve personal issues. If you take initiative to nurture and strengthen your bonding with whom you love, then you are mature. People who lack healthy relationships with themselves, tend to harm their loved ones easily.
15. You are mature.
You always keep your work relationships in check and keep aside personal grievances and focus on professional gain. You don’t seek validation but believe in your skills and abilities and behave in a manner that is mature, social and effective. If you are already doing this then you are already successful.
16. You are helpful.
A lot of successful people are also on the list of most generous philanthropists. Take Bill Gates and Melinda. Besides their personal goals, they also work for a cause and think of well being of others.
If you can help people with your wealth, education, knowledge, network, ideas and act as a pillar of strength for closed ones, then success is not too far off.
17. You are internally driven.
People who don’t succeed are those who are afraid of challenges, depend on others for motivation, and fear taking responsibility.
If you have the willingness to get through the problems and can motivate yourself, then you are internally driven. Successful people don’t mind getting sleeves rolled up and their hands dirty.
18. You are a fighter.
Modern life not only gives us ample opportunities for success but failure too. Successful people battle back even after hitting the rock bottom of life. They march forward with an iron-daunted spirit.
If you know how to fight back when the world is setting you up to fail, then you are on the way to long-term success.
