3 Viable Signs You’re Doing Just Fine (365 Days of Spirited Living – DAY 162)
“The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be.”
— Ralph Waldo Emerson
On some days — most days — you’re not going to see anything. You’re not even going to feel anything. No light. No sunshine. No rainbows. No clearing. Nothing. You can be working and doing all the right things but sense that nothing will really come of it. But just at the very moment when everything seems silenced and every door seems closed and you’re about to give up, you will see a little glimmer of light, a little ray of sunshine, the end of a rainbow, the start of a path in the near distance, and that will be your sign to keep moving, keep working, keep going until suddenly something just happens.
Here are 3 signs you’re doing just fine:
1. You are flexible. Flexibility is a code for consideration. You’re not so set in your ways that every little change causes you to give up and induces stress and anxiety. Being flexible helps to keep you balanced because after all, the only thing you can be sure will happen is change.
2. You are teachable. Yes, even today, with all the innovation and technology that we have, you need to be teachable. Being teachable is a sign of humility and wisdom. Those who are willing to learn often take every opportunity to do so. Before we can develop in any other way, we must be willing to listen and respond to what we learn.
3. You are motivated. Motivation isn’t just the desire to do something. It is also the will and perseverance to see that something through to the end. Many people get motivated, but very few stay motivated. If a big difference for you is getting things done over lazing around, you’re doing just fine in life.
