Why other people seem to have more success in life
July 27, 2018 / Sharnie Carter
The idea of success is a pretty subjective idea.
What one person may deem to be successful may not be the same for someone else. But there are always those that seem to have just that bit more success in life. Why is that?
It should be noted, however, that people may not always be as successful as they seem. What people portray on the outside is not always reflected behind the scenes.
But those who do actually more success in life, probably have so as they have built all areas of their life to a successful state, rather than just one.
Think about it… if your career, family, love life and social life are all working cohesively together, they will always seem to have more success.
All is not lost, however. Just because you may not be in a place where you can call yourself “successful”, doesn’t mean you can’t ever get there.
How you can achieve success in life
- Readjust your ideas of success
Setting your goals too high will make it harder to appreciate your success. Say your goal is to become CEO of a company – don’t put this on your immediate to-do list. Start your list with smaller achievements such as ‘Get a promotion’, ‘Go on a training course’, ‘Study a new qualification’… these steps will help you get to where you want to be and allow you to realise your successes along the way.
- Start to appreciate what you already have
Others may seem to be more successful as they are happy and care-free. But this is often because they make the most of what they have. Start to love what you have while you work for what you want, and you will find that you will be happier and see more success in your own life.
- Celebrate the little wins
Lost 2lbs? Celebrate! Wrote an amazing report? Be happy! Finally cleared out the loft? Reward yourself!
Making the most of the little wins in life will mean you will have more times of celebration and success in life as opposed to negatives.
- Spread your success across all areas of your life
Focuses on your career is great, but you will always find negatives and feel less successful if there are other areas of your life that are lacking. Spreading your focus across your life will allow you to find larger success, and reduce the chances of negativity creeping in.
We are all successful in some way or another, but others seem to have more successbecause of their mindset.
Try it for yourself. You might just find that you’re more successful than you think…
