20 Signs You’re Succeeding In Life Even If You Don’t Feel You Are


This is re posted.


Hello, and welcome to reposted

. In the next few moments, we'll be breaking down the posts that we have found to be inspiring, interesting, or otherwise entertaining quotes that catch our eye and we feel are worth a deeper look. Thank you for stopping by. Today we're going to be looking at a list I found this article on life hack.com. And it's entitled 20 signs you're succeeding in life, even if you don't feel you are, I think this can apply to so many people right now. Because being in a pandemic and being locked down, and some people are canceling Thanksgiving plan, some people are worried. It's hard sometimes to look at yourself and say, Hey, I'm doing successful I know I have a really hard time accepting that things are going well for me of this list. There's two of them that I really like number 18 and 19. You accept what you can't change, and you change what you can I think just giving perspective is important for people to do. Later, you're successful and you can't change.


Larry

Um, so like, Am I supposed to read this list? Oh, my like, just Am I supposed to read this list? And like, talk myself into it? You know, what I am? I'm successful is that I was supposed to read this list? Well, I


Andrew

mean, I guess everyone can do it differently. I mean, just going through the list, I think for me, it's like, yeah, I have, there's like little wins. And it's important for your mental health to be able to, like, say positive things, because it's so easy to be like, Oh, man, life is hard. Los Angeles closed the restaurant again, the whole world is shutting down. It's just like, if you only see negative, if you just look at the news, you're just gonna see negative. But if you look at yourself, you're like, Hey, man, I'm better off than I was a year ago. Or maybe you're not, but


Larry

I don't. But I like this idea that you're just kind of like you're circling the drain in life. Wait a minute, I just read this great article of life hack. I'm a success.


Andrew

You could be just awarded the CEO position of the most successful company in the world, and this could still apply to you. Okay, so maybe you do need to read this, because that's the glass half empty approach to I don't know, do these resonate with you? Do you think you're successful person? Do you? success? It's such a subjective term.


Larry

I mean, that's the whole point. Right? What is that term mean? There's there's definitely days I go like I am not. And then there are definitely days or like, you know what, maybe? For us,


Andrew

I think a lot of what this is doing is comparing yourself against yourself. Because if you compare yourself against other people, that's a losing game, like some of them are, you have raised your standards, that's a marker of success, like five years ago, maybe I was willing to eat in and out seven days a week. And now I'm gonna have it one day we I mean, whatever your standards are


Larry

real quickly. It's funny that you brought that one up, what does that really mean? As opposed to the food thing like your your raise your standards that what does that mean?


Andrew

Again, I guess it's subjective. And like what you think it is like your standards could be, I'm willing to get six hours of sleep a night, or I'm willing to date this person, or I'm willing to let someone talk to me in a certain way that you're like, Hey, I don't need that anymore.


Larry

Because I say this because I'm this that's the one thing I'm gonna take out of this article. I'm gonna raise my standards. I'm definitely going to. I don't know what that means yet, but I'm gonna raise my standards. Okay.


Andrew

You know, like this article? I don't know. I


Larry

really I think it was. I thought it was great. I think this is really cool. I'm glad you found it. And by the way, I love life. hack.org. Okay, I've never been there before. So I kind of went around the ecosystem. Super cool. I like this. You accept what you can't change. So like, the immediate thought I had is like the dude that's drunk, the 50 year old man who's dyed his hair and he's driving around a Corvette. He's like, trying to set the clock back. Like, dude, you are not accepting that you're getting old.


Andrew

Yeah, there's something about a guy in his 70s or 80s that has the same hair color as me. My match. It looks weird. And sometimes you don't know it right away. But you're like, Huh, I don't know about that. And even if you have the best plastic surgery you're like,


Larry

but I feel like that's the perfect example. Right? The guy that's dyeing his hair that's 70 years old. You're like, bro, everybody could tell you're dyeing your hair. Like you're just not accepting what nature is telling you that you're getting old.


Andrew

Right? Another thing that I've seen, especially where on the other side of the election and hasn't been started yet? Oh, yeah, don't complain much. That's number eight. Like it's so easy to be able to complain about anything. And I always say that. There's this example it always sticks in my head is this guy that I met at my last job. The first day I met him He's like, I hate this place. I'm gonna leave And he's been there 12 years now. Like, maybe I don't view him as his success like you can you can choose what you complain about, like unless you just got diagnosed with stage four cancer like, Is it really that big of a deal? That gas is up? 13 cents?


Larry

Like, what? What do you hope to accomplish by complaining? Like I've, of course, I've complained in my life, but like, what is the point of that? Are you just trying to bring people to your level? Are you just a negative person?


Andrew

I know a lot of times when I complain, it feels good to get it like to be like, Hey, man, like you want empathy. Maybe you're seeking empathy, because I've had some recent times where I'm, I'm going through something frustrating. And I'll complain to Nicole might not always get the most sympathetic ear, but and then on the other side of it, well, I really need to complain about it. It's it's more instant gratification than it is a long time success, because you're not strategizing of what's gonna happen, or what steps you can take to make things better.


Larry

And I mean, just to figure that number 17, is you always look on the bright side. I mean, being negative or complaining, only bad outcomes can can happen. But if you're if you're a positive person, good things can only happen.


Andrew

Yeah. So I mean, again, circling back to the beginning, success is subjective. And you have a choice to view yourself as successful or not. So I mean, if you go through this list, or or not just like look at yourself in the mirror and be like, yeah, I'm successful, because you have a choice to view yourself that way.


Larry

And I just want to echo what you said earlier, it has to be comparison of yourself. It can't be against anybody and anything outside other than just who you are.


Andrew

Yeah. And I compare myself to other people all the time, and it never feels good. And when I compare myself to myself, I'm like, hey, you're doing all right. You've come a long way. You come a long way. you've, you've you survived many years of life. Well, if you want to help Larry pick out his neck. please reach out
