Do you ever wonder if you have what it takes to succeed? If you’re like most people you probably wonder about this question all the time. Contemplating if you have the necessary traits that success deems to be of importance is something we all do.

A lot of the time we don’t really know if we have what it takes to succeed. Instead we just assume. For some the assumptions made are accurate, whereas for others they couldn’t be farther from the truth.

Therefore the point of this article is for you to get a clear picture regarding your ability to succeed in life.

If you seem to possess most of the indicators of success below, you are capable of succeeding in any endeavor. However, if you lack majority of the indicators, it’s time to make some changes in your life.

The Six Indicators Of Success

1. Your Work Ethic

If your work ethic is second to none, check this off the list. You have mastered this stage. This is one of the main indicators of success. You have to work, you have to work hard. Nothing surprising about this. This is one of the main indicators that separates the successful from the unsuccessful. Simply put, the successful are willing to put in the work whereas the unsuccessful are willing to make excuses.

Work, work, work.

Work hard. You have to outwork the competition. You have to be willing to put in the extra hours.

The reason why a lot of people don’t put in enough work is because the rewards are usually down the line. Therefore they don’t possess the faith they need. Hence they simply don’t work hard. On the other hand, the successful believe. They know that their performance is linked to rewards so they love to work.

So be real with yourself. Are you working hard or are you hardly working? More importantly, are you working hard on the right things?

2. The People You Surround Yourself With

Your level of success is directly related to the quality of people you spend the most time with. You don’t see the successful hanging out with unsuccessful people. The reason for this is the habits of those we surround ourselves with begin to rub off. Hence the successful know this and they exploit this. They simply surround themselves with the best because this leads to them becoming better.

So ask yourself, are the people you are hanging out with the right people? This is another huge indicator of success. I cannot stress how important it is to be honest in this stage.

Change might just be required.

3. Your Thoughts

Your mind is your greatest weapon or your worse enemy, so which one is it?

Success requires you to be a strong minded individual. It’s apparent that you have to be positive.

You cannot be easily swayed. Once you lock your mind on your dreams, you can’t let anybody talk you out of achieving them. You have to commit yourself.

4. Your Reaction To Failure

Do you get up and try again or do you stop?

5. How You Deal With Fear

Fear cripples some and makes others. If you simply feel fear, but still take action, you are on the road to success. On the other hand, if you let fear stop you, you won’t be making much progress.

6. Sacrifices

Sacrifices are essential for success. In fact without sacrifices you cannot achieve much. So are you wasting your precious time out partying or are you mastering your craft? Are you focused on the short term or the long term? Are you letting instant gratification blind you?

It’s a must that you make sacrifices.

You have to learn how to say “no.”

Well those are the six indicators of success. How many do you possess? After you have come up with your answer, the key is to acquire the ones you don’t currently possess.

If you have all six, congratulations, you have what it takes to succeed.

If you don’t, ACQUIRE THEM.
