Do you feel like a failure sometimes? Don't worry, here are 20 signs that you are probably succeeding a lot more than you think you are.

Lore Ochoa's insight:

We all feel like failures from time to time. While this is a normal feeling, you have to find a way to see yourself and your life from a different perspective. Sometimes we ignore the “little things.” Just because you are not a millionaire, don’t live in a mansion, and you don’t drive a fancy car, that doesn’t mean you’re a failure. In fact, it’s quite the contrary.

Here are 20 signs that you are succeeding in life

Meaningful Conversation Makes Things Better

Meaningful Conversation Makes Things Better | Health and mindfulness | Scoop.it

""What I'm seeing is that people get so used to being short-changed out of real conversation, so used to getting by with less, that they've become almost willing to dispense with people altogether. We connect more and more. But in the process, we set ourselves up to be isolated. Our fantasies of substitution have cost us.”"

4 Ways To Retrain Your Brain To Handle Information Overload

4 Ways To Retrain Your Brain To Handle Information Overload | Health and mindfulness | Scoop.it

Psychologist and behavioral neuroscientist Daniel Levitin, author of the upcoming book The Organized Mind: Thinking Straight in the Age of Information Overload, says information overload creates daily challenges for our brains, causing us to feel mentally exhausted before the day's end.

 

“Our brains are equipped to deal with the world the way it was many thousands of years ago when we were hunter-gatherers," says Levitin. "Back then the amount of information that was coming at us was much less and it came at us much more slowly.”

 

The pace at which we’re exposed to information today is overwhelming to our brains, which haven’t adapted fast enough to easily separate relevant data from the irrelevant at the speed we’re asking it to. As a result, our brains become easily fatigued, and we become more forgetful. By using principles of neuroscience, Levitin says we can regain control over our brains by organizing information in a way that optimizes our brain’s capacity.
