17 Sure Signs You Will Be Successful
1. You Are Confident
Always be yourself, express yourself, have faith in yourself, do not go out and look for a successful personality and duplicate it.

You don’t shy aware from uncomfortable situations.
In fact, you go for the tough things because you know you can handle it and you know it will make you better.
You take up things others are not willing to and make others confident success can be attained.
When you face challenges, you learn the lesson from them and don’t take it as a sign to quit.
You stay confident that standing by your principles is the way to go and no matter how many people try to influence you to abandon them, you are confident that the success you desire will be attained with those principles.
As long as you keep going, you’ll keep getting better. And as you get better, you gain more confidence. That alone is success.
– Tamara Taylor
2. You Are Hardworking
There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure.
– Colin Powell
The price of success is hard work, dedication to the job at hand, and the determination that whether we win or lose, we have applied the best of ourselves to the task at hand.
– Vince Lombardi
You put in the work needed to attain the goals you set.
When you see the hours you need to put in to attain your goal is greater than you thought possible, you don’t let that stop you.
You just take things one step at a time and restrategize to allocate more time for accomplishing your tasks.
Success isn’t always about greatness. It’s about consistency. Consistent hard work leads to success. Greatness will come. — Dwayne Johnson
3. You Have a Plan To Achieve Your Goals
Without continual growth and progress, such words as improvement, achievement, and success have no meaning.
Setting goals with no plan or strategy is a waste of time and those goals will probably never be achieved without a plan.
You write down your goals followed by what you will do daily to get you a set closer to that goal.
You are in love with the process and don’t take up goals you don’t enjoy working towards.
Some people dream of success, while other people get up every morning and make it happen.
– Wayne Huizenga
4. You Have Faith
Many people tell you how impossible your dreams are.
They are so convincing and they back up their belief with experience.
Yet still, you keep working towards your goals because you have faith you are on the route to making your dreams a reality.
5. You Rise After The Falls
Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved.
You will fall so many times.
In fact you might fall more times than you rise.
No matter how many times you fall, what matters is you rise and keep rising because the down times keep coming.
Failures, repeated failures, are finger posts on the road to achievement. One fails forward toward success.
– C. S. Lewis
6. You Surround Yourself With Success
Next, on the list of sure signs, you will be successful is surrounding yourself with success.
We all know of the saying you are an average of the five people we surround ourselves with.
Who we surround ourselves with shapes our mind and ambitions.
When the people around you are all working towards success, they motivate you to do the same.
So if you have success around you, you will become successful.
7. You Enjoy The Journey
Enjoy your sweat because hard work doesn’t guarantee success, but without it you don’t have a chance.
– Alex Rodrigue
You love the process to success.
No matter how boring it might feel sometimes you find a way to enjoy it.
Like blending it with things which makes the process more exciting, like music.
This is because success takes time and you might stay on that road, with little or no gain for a long while, all you have is the joy you get from doing what you need to do to get to your goals.
So if you are enjoying your journey, chances are you will keep going and you will get to success.
8. You Do More Than You Talk
Work underground and let your success speak.
Spending less time talking about what you will become and working towards making it a reality is definitely the way to go.
You spend more time on your grind, less time partying and spending late nights out, success is definitely on the way.
You listen more, that way you learn more.
9. You Are Open Minded
You will encounter new people, new circumstances.
You will need to decide whether to listen to what others have to offer with an open mind or shut down to everything new.
The right choice will be hearing what people have to say and only denying it if it doesn’t suit your vision not just because it didn’t originate from you.
You are also willing to give over power to others who are better to complete certain tasks.
10. You Compare With You
Every day is a new opportunity. You can build on yesterday’s success or put its failures behind and start over again. That’s the way life is, with a new game every day, and that’s the way baseball is.
– Bob Feller
Comparing with others could be unhealthy, especially because what we see is just a fraction their reality.
The only person we have a full view of their life is us.
So the most suitable person to compare with is us.
We need to compare with our past selves and make sure we are improving.
If we seek daily to be better than we were yesterday, we are definitely on the way to success.
Learning and innovation go hand in hand. The arrogance of success is to think that what you did yesterday will be sufficient for tomorrow.
– William Pollard
11. You Are Not Attached To How
We have a goal, we have a plan on how we need to get there but sometimes things don’t always go as planned.
We need to be willing to accept the change in plan.
None of us really know what the future holds and how our dreams will be made a reality.
All we can do is work towards them and be willing to bend corners to get there because it won’t be a straight path.
12. You Never Blame Others
At the end of the day, you are solely responsible for your success and your failure. And the sooner you realize that, you accept that, and integrate that into your work ethic, you will start being successful. As long as you blame others for the reason you aren’t where you want to be, you will always be a failure.
– Erin Cummings
Blaming people for your failures is a complete waste of time.
Nothing will change until you step up and see what you can do to make the change you seek.
No one wants the success of your goals more than you.
So the highest effort and dedication should come from you, don’t expect otherwise.
13. You Are Focused
Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life – think of it, dream of it, live on that idea. Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success.
– Swami Vivekananda
Focus – Face one course until success.
Staying focused means, taking up one goal, taking it to the end, then proceeding to another.
We don’t try to do so many demanding tasks at once and end up completing none.
Focused, hard work is the real key to success. Keep your eyes on the goal, and just keep taking the next step towards completing it. If you aren’t sure which way to do something, do it both ways and see which works better.
– John Carmack
14. You are Humble
I’m always asked, ‘What’s the secret to success?’ But there are no secrets. Be humble. Be hungry. And always be the hardest worker in the room.
– Dwayne Johnson
You are humble enough to admit what you don’t know and learn from those who do.
You are comfortable delegating tasks to those who are better than you.
You are okay with not being the smartest guy in the room, in fact, you prefer surrounding yourself with smarter people.
Humility is the true key to success. Successful people lose their way at times. They often embrace and overindulge from the fruits of success. Humility halts this arrogance and self-indulging trap. Humble people share the credit and wealth, remaining focused and hungry to continue the journey of success.
– Rick Pitino
15. You Are Disciplined
Success isn’t measured by money or power or social rank. Success is measured by your discipline and inner peace.
– Mike Ditka
Another sign you will be successful is discipline.
You are disciplined enough to do what you need to meet up with your daily tasks.
You stay disciplined enough to help you maintain your health so you can be your most efficient self.
It doesn’t matter whether you are pursuing success in business, sports, the arts, or life in general: The bridge between wishing and accomplishing is discipline.
– Harvey Mackay
16. You Have A Powerful Morning Routine
Your morning sets up the success of your day. So many people wake up and immediately check text messages, emails, and social media. I use my first hour awake for my morning routine of breakfast and meditation to prepare myself.
– Caroline Ghosn
Starting your morning the right way has a huge impact on how your day goes.
How your days go determines how much closer you are to your goals.
You must not do much in the morning.
Just something like Prayers and Meditation, exercising can go a long way to empower you for the rest of the day.
17. You Have The Right State Of Mind
Any fact facing us is not as important as our attitude toward it, for that determines our success or failure. The way you think about a fact may defeat you before you ever do anything about it. You are overcome by the fact because you think you are. – – Norman Vincent Peale
You don’t see failure as a stop sign.
Your goals are not tied to only what you know presently but what you are willing to learn.
You see challenges like a learning opportunity.
You let positives thoughts rule your mind and actions.
This sign summarises all of the signs you will be successful because it entails you having a state of mind which inspires all the other signs mentioned above.
The above list of signs you will be successful is mainly to highlight some of the attributes which are linked to success.
So we can be comforted that if it hasn’t yet happened for us, keep on with the above habits it will happen.
If we need to make some changes it is not too late.
No better time than the present.
Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all, love of what you are doing or learning to do.
