Learn To Celebrate The Small Victories
Do you reward yourself for your accomplishments?

It is important that we take the time to celebrate even our small victories.

It's time to take a step back and realize that instead of focusing on all that we're not getting done, we should be focusing on all that we are getting done. I call this the Celebrate the Small Victories approach. The intent is to give a little love to yourself for all of the hard work you put into each day. This will make for a much happier existence, boost your self-esteem by placing focus on the positive and likely make you even more productive and energetic as time goes on. You can't lose!

By marking these successes, we make them stick out in our minds. It forces us to acknowledge our progress and increases the likelihood we’ll repeat the positive behavior in the future.

Did you have a good day at work today? Did you finish a noteworthy project or deliver a good presentation? Did you close a sale?

For stay-at-home moms, did you survive another day with a toddler? Did the kids get to and from school on time? Did you finish a household chore?

Whatever your goals, be sure to recognize your victories. So, go ahead and treat yourself for all your victories, even the small ones!

  • Buy yourself a banana split from your favorite ice cream store.

  • Give yourself permission to take a day off and relax.

  • Get a latte at a coffee shop.
