Happy Friday. I hope you had a great week and can celebrate all that you accomplished! In this fast-paced, results-oriented world in which we live, it is easy to get swept away by the deadlines created, the major milestones you want to achieve, and the big hairy audacious goals hatched. It is important to have and achieve your goals, but, how often do you spend time recognizing the small successes and strides you are making along the way to their completion?
I know that I am guilty, at times, of not really recognizing or celebrating my small successes along the way, and just pushing myself forward to meet the next deadline or complete the next project. Recently, I have been reminded that it is important for you to remember that your journey is just as important as the final destination.
Noticing your small victories, appreciating the strides you made and celebrating them can provide you the motivation to keep moving forward. It is also a great self-confidence boost. It is so important to keep the fire inside of you stoked and burning bright! By acknowledging and rewarding yourself, you are adding fresh firewood to carry you through to your end-goals.
Be present for and aware of the strides you make each day to reach your goals. Make sure you celebrate them; you deserve it!
Enjoy your weekend! Take care.
