YOUR PERSONAL POWER MESSAGE:
7. I am celebrated
How often do you celebrate your small wins? We often wait until we reach major milestones and stress ourselves out if we don’t reach them when we expect to. I am very guilty of this. I only recently started writing down all the things I’ve accomplished and I was totally surprised by how little credit I gave myself, let alone a proper celebration. I learned how to drive when I used to be terrified of it; that’s a huge deal! I learned how to invest in stocks even though it sounded intimidating and scary, especially for someone who always had difficulty learning in school.
Sara Blakely grew up celebrating her failures; that is pretty neat! Get used to celebrating the fact that you even attempted something even if it failed. That has to be more satisfying than never knowing how it would have turned out, or what else you can do to get a different outcome. Don’t forget to celebrate the little things on a regular basis. You’ll begin to feel happier, and more accomplished. Choose something you need to celebrate, no matter how small it is. Acknowledge it and enjoy the moment because you deserve it. Keep a list of your accomplishments and read this list when you feel discouraged.
-What are some things you’ve accomplished?
-When was the last time you celebrated your wins?
-What failures can you celebrate, just for trying?
-How will you celebrate yourself going forward?
Win, celebrate, cheers
