1. You feel proud of yourself.
Regardless of where you are in life, you feel proud of yourself for having achieved what you have and having done what you've done — whether it's good or bad. Because life is not about going from one point to the next. Life is about the journey — and the key to loving life is to enjoy the journey.
You're proud of yourself and for everything you've been through because every turning point in life leads you to another. Every change leads to a new destiny. When one door closes, another door opens. No matter what happened in the past, you are who you are because of everything that's happened and you're proud of who you've become.

2. You feel happy with where you are and where you're headed.
You know that you've done well in life when you're happy with where you are and where you're headed. You might not be where you dream of ultimately achieving but you're happy that you're on the right path. You know who you are and you're doing things that align with your values. You don't do things that go against who you are at the core. You are in touch with your soul, with yourself, and you know that no matter what happens, you will be okay. Life will lead you down the right path.
3. You are better than you were yesterday, last week, and last year.
You might not be the best you could be yet but at least if you're better than you were yesterday and the day before, then you've done well in life. Sometimes we do stupid things. Sometimes we do things we should not have done. But as long as we realize this and aim to become a better person each day — mentally, emotionally, physically, and intellectually, then you're further along in life than most people.
