Celebrate even the small wins. The key to success is realising that our big goals aren’t going to happen overnight, in the next week or maybe even the next year, and this is okay.
We tend to focus on the end goals rather than the small and significant steps we take to get us to that goal.
This is why it’s important to acknowledge and celebrate small wins. The problem with not doing this is we end up diminishing our motivation, and motivation is what keeps us on the right path and gives us the strength to soldier on to the top of the mountain.
Demotivation usually comes because we are unsure of how far we are to our goals. We sometimes blindly believe that the goal is still so far away when it could actually be just around the corner – something we will never know if we give up.
It’s therefore important to make sure you celebrate your small goals along the way.
It makes us feel good, and gives us the ‘happiness’ factor that makes us want to go further towards our next achievement.
