You are closer to success than you think
How to measure one’s success in life is generally dependent on what the person supposes to be his or her target. If at the end they are able to obtain the satisfaction after a goal that they are pursuing, they will have succeeded. So, success basically is all about setting goals and working towards them.
The closer the goals, the better you live as you are motivated to keep working towards them. Here, it is good to understand that you can make these goals seem so close to you that it will just require a small step and you are there. Living a happy life with great achievements happens to many people because they believe in the success. But then, their believe makes them sure that a certain goal is close to them. The first step towards closing up on the success is thus such believe that you are already making it.
The second step is to break down the major milestone you have in mind into smaller reasonable targets. Choose a general timeframe and break it down also. Assign time to every target and you should end up with something that roughly looks like a checklist with the sum of all the items being the success you are dreaming of.
That way, you will always be working towards reasonable goals and you will be sure that you are going to attain your target at the end of the day; as long as you keep checking all the steps. What should only worry you is when procrastination takes root. To deal with that, start an exercise routine and you will get over it.
