15 Signs You’re A Winner in Life Even If You Don’t Think So

15 Signs You’re A Winner in Life Even If You Don’t Think So

You may think that just because you aren’t wealthy, that you are not a winner in life. This is absolutely untrue. You may be surprised at just how much personal wealth you really do have — and we’re not talking about finances. We’re talking about what makes you the person you are, and what really makes you a winner.

Here are 15 signs to look for in order to see just how great you really are.

1. You have close friends.

You don’t need a huge crowd of friends. What you need are a couple of friends you are very close with, and who will always be there for you when you need them.

2. You have high standards.

You know what you want in life, and you aren’t going to settle for anything less. This includes your career — and the person you will end up spending the rest of your life with.

3. You have no regrets.

Never have any regrets in life. Anything you do is a learning experience, as long as you don’t repeat it.

“Fear is a habit; so is self-pity, defeat, anxiety, despair, hopelessness and resignation. You can eliminate all of these negative habits with two simple resolves: I can! and I will!” – Napoleon Hill.

4. You have people who love you.

Don’t pay attention to those who judge you. They are not the people who love you. You have your parents, grandparents, and other family members and friends.

5. You have no relationship drama.

Keep your circle of friends small, and make sure that they are people you can trust. You don’t need any drama at this stage in your life.

6. You have self-love and self-respect.

When you love and respect yourself, you can expect the same from others, and you won’t accept any less from your relationships.

7. You don’t care what others think.

Once you get to a certain point in life, you do what you want and don’t care what others think. Go ahead and be your wonderful, unique self.

8. You like what you see in the mirror.

If you can look into the mirror and like what you see, you will always be a winner in your own eyes. That is more important than the opinion of anyone else.

9. You always have faith.

You may not be where you want in life right now, but your faith in yourself will get you to where you want to be.

10. Your bills are paid.

You may not have money for expensive trips, jewelry, designer clothing, etc., but if your bills are paid, you can consider yourself a real winner. This is something that not everyone can accomplish every month. You may not have a mansion or drive one of the fastest cars in the world, but you have what you need.

11. You’re content.

When you are always trying to compete with others who have higher salaries, you are never content with what you have. As long as the bills are getting paid and you live comfortably, does it really matter if your salary isn’t as high as your neighbor’s?

12. You have a decent wardrobe.

You don’t need a closet filled with designer clothes. But, if you have enough clothing to not have to repeat outfits for two to three weeks, you are ahead of the game.

“Stop saying ‘I Wish’ and start saying ‘I Will’.” – David Copperfield.

13. You have no unhealthy relationships.

You are a great person, and you don’t need to be with people who bring you down.

14. You push yourself.

If you are critical of yourself and always pushing to do better things, you are going to be a winner.

“My teacher once told me, ‘no one is perfect…that is why pencils have erasers.” – Mahesh Bhatt.

15. You do things you love.

Make sure that you are taking time for yourself. Watch a movie you love, read a great book, or visit with close friends. Do what makes you happy.

7 Powerful Questions To Find Out What You Want To Do With Your Life

7 Powerful Questions To Find Out What You Want To Do With Your Life

What do I want to do with my life? It’s a question all of us think about at one point or another.

For some, the answer comes easily. For others, it takes a lifetime to figure out.

It’s easy to just go through the motions and continue to do what’s comfortable and familiar. But for those of you who seek fulfillment, who want to do more, these questions will help you paint a clearer picture of what you want to do with your life.

1. What are the things I’m most passionate about?

The first step to living a more fulfilling life is to think about the things that you’re passionate about.

What do you love? What fulfills you? What “work” do you do that doesn’t feel like work? Maybe you enjoy writing, maybe you love working with animals or maybe you have a knack for photography.

The point is, figure out what you love doing, then do more of it.

2. What are my greatest accomplishments in life so far?

Think about your past experiences and the things in your life you’re most proud of.

How did those accomplishments make you feel? Pretty darn good, right? So why not try and emulate those experiences and feelings?

If you ran a marathon once and loved the feeling you had afterwards, start training for another one. If your child grew up to be a star athlete or musician because of your teachings, then be a coach or mentor for other kids.

Continue to do the things that have been most fulfilling for you.

3. If my life had absolutely no limits, what would I choose to have and what would I choose to do?

Here’s a cool exercise: Think about what you would do if you had no limits.

If you had all the money and time in the world, where would you go? What would you do? Who would you spend time with?

These answers can help you figure out what you want to do with your life. It doesn’t mean you need millions of dollars to be happy though.

What it does mean is answering these questions will help you set goals to reach certain milestones and create a path toward happiness and fulfillment. Which leads to our next question …

4. What are my goals in life?

Goals are a necessary component to set you up for a happy future. So answer these questions:

Once you figure out the answers to each of these, you’ll have a much better idea of what you should do with your life.

5. Whom do I admire most in the world?

Following the path of successful people can set you up for success.

Think about the people you respect and admire most. What are their best qualities? Why do you respect them? What can you learn from them?

You’re the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with.[1] So don’t waste your time with people who hold you back from achieving your dreams.

Spend more time with happy, successful, optimistic people and you’ll become one of them.

6. What do I not like to do?

An important part of figuring out what you want to do with your life is honestly assessing what you don’t want to do.

What are the things you despise? What bugs you the most about your current job?

Maybe you hate meetings even though you sit through 6 hours of them every day. If that’s the case, find a job where you can work more independently.

The point is, if you want something to change in your life, you need to take action. Which leads to our final question …

7. How hard am I willing to work to get what I want?

Great accomplishments never come easy. If you want to do great things with your life, you’re going to have to make a great effort. That will probably mean putting in more hours the average person, getting outside your comfort zone and learning as much as you can to achieve as much as you can.

But here’s the cool part: it’s often the journey that is the most fulfilling part. It’s during these seemingly small, insignificant moments that you’ll often find that “aha” moments that helps you answer the question,

“What do I want to do with my life?”

So take the first step toward improving your life. You won’t regret it.
