When you have a win, what do you do?
Do you celebrate your success or do you move on without so much as a blink of an eyelash?
When I experience a win I ‘happy dance’!
Yes, I jump around the room in all my glory, legs and arms moving about in sometimes-hideous displays of joy in order to mark my achievement, regardless of its size.
To celebrate my win.
Now I’m not saying this is how you should celebrate your wins.
What I am saying is that you should make sure you celebrate your wins in some way.
Acknowledge those milestones no matter how big or small they are.
Give yourself one huge pat on the back, knowing that it’s a show of your respect and love for yourself.
In today’s fast-paced world most people don’t celebrate their wins.
Instead, they overlook successes in favour of focusing on the next task and what needs to be done to achieve their next goal.
Yet it is these celebrations of self that inspire us to achieve more.
When you take time to reflect on how far you’ve come you’re filled with gratitude for all that you are and all that you have to give and create.
If you gloss over your successes without recognition, what does that say about you?
That you don’t truly value and appreciate yourself and your efforts.
And if you don’t value and appreciate yourself, others won’t either.
Celebrating your wins helps you connect back in with your purpose for what you’ve been working towards.
Whether it’s in business or at home, in your hobbies or while doing something random, when you have a win, celebrate it.
Find you own unique celebratory expression.
Maybe it’s happy dancing like me, or perhaps it’s booking in for a massage, cooking yourself a gourmet meal or giving yourself an orgasm!
Whatever you choose, make sure you stop and celebrate.
