In today's world, how do you measure success?
The world tells us success means to have things, something that is tangible and one that can be seen, like big houses, big bank balance, a top title in a good company, a business that has a multi-million turnover, vacations around the world and high-end gadgets to show for.
Having all of the above could be considered a successful like but it is not necessary that everyone that has these things is prosperous, content or enjoying real success.
Success and feeling successful is different to different people, yes but there are a few commonalities that people who are truly living a prosperous life feel.
Here are 10 indicators that you are living a prosperous and successful life.
You are generally happy and feeling balanced in all areas of your life.
You have enough money to fulfil your requirements and don’t live in want.
You have a deep and meaningful relationship with parents, family members, spouse and kids.
You have regular connect with friends who know you well and with whom you can be yourself.
