You are a hard worker. When challenges come your way, you take them head on. When you start a new journey, you want to do it right.
Sometimes it can be hard to know which way is the right way. It’s hard to see the fruits of your labor when the end goal is a lifestyle change.
Here are a few ways to tell that you’re on the right path.
You feel good
This is the easiest way to know you’re doing the right thing. You can feel the success in a meaningful way.
What feels good is up to you. Maybe you have more energy, you’re more comfortable, or you’re more confident in yourself.
When you notice that good feeling of accomplishment, make sure you take a moment to enjoy it. You are capable of greatness.
Continue on that path to greatness. Your confidence, energy, and abilities will only grow as you get better and better.
You are seeing results
Measuring results is so important if you want to know what you’re doing is right for you. If you don’t, you’re going to be running blind.
Set regular checkups. Maybe you weigh yourself once a week, time a lap around a track once a month, or something else that is related to your goal.
Be diligent and honest during these measuring-stick days. Honesty with yourself is vital to your success.
If you don’t see the results you were expecting, it’s time for a change. If you do, find a new way to continue challenging yourself.
Your success has been noticed
What other people think of you should never be your main concern, but it does feel good when people mention your success.
When you make an intentional, sustained life change, the people around you are going to notice. Your family, friends, and others might acknowledge your hard work.
Smile, but don’t let it go to your head. You aren’t finished yet. Accept any compliments, ignore unhelpful criticism, and get back to work. Before you know it, everyone will notice you’re a different person.
You find yourself getting a little bored
Routine is important if you want to build a happy, healthy lifestyle. Without a routine, you’re unable to measure success or identify what’s working and what isn’t.
However, a routine can get boring. Doing the same things day in and day out can get old. Is that a bad thing? Not necessarily.
That boredom is a product of consistency. Think about when you first started. That routine probably both excited you and exhausted you. Now, it’s just another day for you.
If you’re bored of your routine, it’s time to start challenging yourself again. Add new workouts, foods, or other things that excite you again. When those seem dull, add more.
