In today’s world, it’s easy to perceive your life as less fortunate.
It’s a perspective shared by many.
You open Twitter and see how smart people are. You open Instagram and see how happy people are in nice pictures.
These experiences may lead you to believe that your life falls short when in reality you are doing fine.
Here are the 9 Surprising Signs You’re Secretly Thriving Beyond Your Wildest Dreams:
1. You are not the same person you were last year
You’ve undergone substantial changes in the past year.
Change serves as a clear indicator of growth and development; without it, growth remains elusive.
Pause for a moment and reflect on who you were a year ago.
Compare your past self to who you are now.
Ask yourself the following questions:
- What valuable lessons have you learned?
- Have you shed unwise behaviors?
- What positive attitudes have you embraced?
- Which goals have you successfully attained?
- What significant steps have you taken?
Through this introspection, you gain profound insight into your personal growth.
If most of your answers reveal room for improvement, you know what to do.
- Commit to evolving into a different person in the coming year.
- Establish goals that enhance your life.
- Break free from toxic habits and patterns that hinder your progress.
- Promise yourself increased diligence and discipline.
Remember, it’s your life, and you have the power to make your dreams a reality.
If you find that you’ve become a better version of yourself compared to last year, congratulations.
Be proud of your journey and never cease your pursuit of personal growth.
2. You went through hard times
Your confidence in your own resilience emerges when you navigate challenging periods.
Difficult days serve as assessments of your mental and physical fortitude,
your capacity to persevere through adversity and your unwavering belief in the promise of brighter days.
If you find yourself amidst tough times, rest assured that you will emerge even stronger.
3. You are serious about your goals
Many individuals tend to go with the flow and shy away from setting goals.
Goals offer a sense of purpose,
equipping you with the fortitude to confront challenges and imparting meaning to your endeavors.
You place your goals above frivolous distractions and locales that contribute nothing to your life.
If you find yourself without a goal,
start by establishing a simple one and take steps towards its attainment.
Anyone who has set and accomplished a goal can attest to the exceptional sense of satisfaction it brings.
This feeling is truly remarkable, and everyone should strive to experience it.
Understand that you are making more progress in life than you might realize.
4. You have 1-2 real friends
Having a real friend in this fake world is a real blessing.
A real friend you can count on and trust is a sign that you are doing better, even if it’s just one person.
5. You seek peace over pleasure
You choose peace and care about your mental health. But peace doesn’t come easy.
It means cutting off people, learning, creating useful habits, and keeping a positive and healthy mind.
Many people don’t face the harsh truth of their lives and chase the next dopamine hit.
You are on another level if you are always choosing peace over temporary happiness.
6. You don’t make big announcements
You don’t need public validation and support to start working on your goals.
You work silently and let the result speak.
7. You learn from mistakes
The reason why most people suffer in life is that they don’t accept their mistakes and learn from them.
But you are here learning from your mistakes, improving yourself with the lessons you learned,
and becoming the better version of yourself.
You are doing excellent in life, even if it’s not obvious.
This mindset will take you exactly where you want to go.
8. You trust yourself and your intuition
You are willing to walk the road you know is designed for you.
Many people follow the crowd fearing to walk alone.
But you no longer live in that prison. You pursue your goals and trust your intuition.
9. You spend some time doing what you enjoy
Whether it’s watching a movie, listening to music, singing, or writing.
We are all busy being ambitious, working hard, and taking care of our families.
But finding the time to do what you enjoy alone is precious.
Until we meet, stay safe.
