What really happens when you become successful? How do you know you are successful already? Or almost getting there? What does success really mean to you? It is sometimes difficult to ascertain how successful you are when you are the one undertaking the journey and you only see yourself the way you have always seen yourself. Most times we need to stare at the mirror and need to admit what is going right in our lives and what is not if we want to attain success?
What really happens when you start becoming successful? Here are 8 signs to show you are becoming successful.
You have more haters
People would envy what you have. Of course they may not have the things you have and don’t know how to attain these things for themselves, but haters have envy and resentment to offer successful people. If you start having a larger number of people criticizing and hating you without any significant reason you have surely done something right in life already
You have sycophants
People want to spend time with you because they have a sense of purpose and security around you. Successful people have flatterers who praise them for the right and the wrong things they do. Yes you could call these ones the fake ones, but you are not successful yet if you don’t attract such people.
You have more opportunities
There is something about success, success begets success. People who become successful attract more opportunities than those who are still struggling and unclear about the direction they need to take in life. When you start attracting more opportunities know that you have attained a certain kind of success. But be careful at this hour since with success you have to learn to become more selective about the people and the activities you undertake in.
You have more challenges
Yes you have more issues to deal with. People will probably bring their problems and challenges to you as well. So many challenges simply get you busy. The irony though is that you are more relevant and responsible to deal with such problems. It is simply up to you to know what challenges should take your energy and those that shouldn’t.
Time becomes your most important currency
You are busy or have acquired certain taste and interest along the way that occupies your time. You have less time for mediocrity or mundane stuffs. You understand that to stay successful you have to maximize your time. Yes time becomes your most important currency when you become successful.
You meet other successful people
It is almost impossible for a successful person to be hanging out with someone who is not successful. Successful people surround themselves with the right kind of people who will steer them towards more success. Success can be a lifestyle, why hang around the wrong kind of people.
You have worthy pursuits
Yes money, wealth or influence gives you freedom. You are constantly thinking of providing value to those around you. You are asking questions on how you can improve so that you can meet demands and answer the right questions. You become progressive when you start embracing success. You become restless for more success.
You avoid negative people
There is no diction as impossible for successful people. Successful people don’t tolerate negative people or negative thoughts. If they set their sight on a goal, they are constantly working towards it. Who would believe that years ago we didn’t have Facebook or electric cars? You should understand that success is about possibilities and not impossibilities.
Here are some things that happen when you become successful. If you are successful already or have studied successful people what do you think I missed?
