1. YOU KNOW WHAT YOU WANT & YOU BELIEVE IT’S YOURS FOR THE TAKING

If you’ve acknowledged the fact that time goes by fast and that the only way to live the life you want to live is by actually knowing what you want, then *hurray*, this is a sign that you’re on your way to succeeding.

Being really clear about what you want and believing that you can make it happen puts you ahead of the game. Lack of clarity and belief in your own abilities are two of the biggest reasons why people don’t succeed. So get clear & start believing.

2. YOU’RE NOT AFRAID TO FAIL

Being an entrepreneur requires guts. If you have to have the courage to put your ideas out into the word (which can be terrifying) and you have the confidence to ask for help (even though you might get turned down) then it’s a sure sign that you’re going to make it as an entrepreneur.

If you’re prepared to put yourself out there and try, even though you might fall on your face, then you’re going to accomplish amazing things.

3. YOU WORK FROM THE HEART 

If you work from the heart, doing something that you love and being your true authentic self, then not only will you succeed, you’ll have way more fun and enjoy the journey more.

Life is way better when you put your heart and soul into it.

4. YOU DON’T LET OTHERS BRING YOU DOWN

If you’ve come across strange, mean people who would rather see you stumble and fall, instead of succeed, and you used their comments to fuel your desire to succeed, rather than to stop you, then congratulations for not letting someone else kill your dreams.

Too many dreams are squashed by people who don’t want others to succeed. I’m glad you’re not letting that happen to you. Stay strong – this is your life, make it spectacular and don’t let anyone stop you.

5. YOU’RE PREPARED TO BECOME THE PERSON YOU NEED TO BE IN ORDER TO SUCCEED

Succeeding takes hard work, determination, focus, effort and discipline. If you’ve made the commitment to yourself to be the person you need to be in order to succeed, then you are well on your way.

Getting rid of the bad habits and replacing then with good ones, like being organised, staying focused on what you need to do, putting in the effort to make it happen, disciplining yourself to do whatever it takes – this is what will set you apart.

Ask yourself every day, “what kind of person do I need to be today in order to succeed?” and then become that person. Always make sure kind, authentic and honest are in the mix 🙂
