Life is a process, a flow of energy, a sense of being that can seem as elusive as the wind. We can see and feel something within us, something deeper than the surface, something that moves us but remains just out of reach. This something, the essential flow of energy that gives us life, holds its own intelligence, direction, and timing.

There is a simpler way for achieving our goals-strive for progress. Promise ourselves to put your best effort and look at it as a learning experience. Strive to achieve excellence at every stage instead of limiting ourselves with the idea of perfection.

A desire for progress most often has its roots in our subconscious. We are rarely motivated towards progress by our situation, it’s our emotions that drive us towards it. We feel something is wrong or missing in our life and we don’t like that feeling so we want to take matters into our own hands and change it.

Whether you’re hoping to start a successful business or simply looking to live a fulfilling life, progress is an important indicator of current and future success.

But what’s progress to one person may not be progress to the next, so how can you know for sure that you’re making true progress in your life?

Fortunately, there are a few solid indicators that you’re making progress. Outlined below are three of them.

1. You’re Able to Look to Your Mistakes and Learn From Them: Mistakes aren’t the monsters that we make them out to be. Instead, mistakes can help us learn a lot about ourselves and the path we’re taking in our lives.

When you’re on a path of progression, your mistakes are an opportunity for change. You can use your mistakes to ask yourself some thought-provoking questions such as what things can be done to correct them, what might you be able to do differently in the future to prevent making them again, and what lessons can be learned from them.

2. You’re Genuinely Happy for Others

You know how much hard work goes into achieving your dream, which is why you’re no longer jealous when those around you reach their goals. When you’re progressing on your own path, you don’t have any ill feelings for those who are doing the same even if they happen to be further ahead than you.

3. You Know that Success Only Happens When You’re Open to Failure

Progress means to continually move forward, even if that forward motion may be met with a bump in the road or an exceedingly high wall. Failure can certainly be scary and it’s okay to feel fear and anxiety! But, openness to failure is the only way you can continue towards success.
