Do You Take Time to Celebrate Your Successes?

How do you celebrate your successes?

As an entrepreneur, you are undoubtedly terrifically busy.  But are you doing so many things that you’re not taking the time to notice how much you’ve actually accomplished in a particular span of time?  It’s important that you’re not so quick to accomplish the next goal that you forget to celebrate the one that you’ve just completed.

When we don’t acknowledge our accomplishments and successes on a regular basis, we tend to fall under the assumption that we aren’t actually accomplishing that much at all.  When that happens, our self-confidence starts to take a hit, which can then affect our productivity.  It’s a vicious cycle.  It’s important to remember to give yourself a pat on the back for each goal that you complete.  Give yourself just a little reward – something that you look forward to doing that makes you smile.  It will build your self-confidence in your ability to get things done and it will also remind you that success is fun.

Your reward for a job well done doesn’t need to be a big one.  In fact, depending on the size of the goal, it doesn’t have to be much at all.  What’s more important is taking the time to acknowledge it.  Here are some little things you can do throughout the day as you cross those items off of your to-do list, as well as some bigger things for those larger, longer-term goals.

    • Tweet it / post it on Facebook
    • Turn on your favorite song and do a happy dance
    • Share with your family and friends
    • Go for a walk or run
    • Take time to hit the gym or your favorite exercise class – maybe one that you don’t get to attend regularly
    • Have a drink
    • Go out to dinner
    • Spend the afternoon reading or just vegging out
    • Spend the afternoon with your family
    • Take a day off of work
    • And for those bigger goals:  buy yourself something new or have a party

By taking this time to celebrate your successes, it will give you confidence and also motivate you to keep pushing for those larger, long-term goals that may seem so intimidating.  Enjoy your success and appreciate the rewards of your well-earned accomplishments!

  4. Hey there, I think your blog might be having
    browser compatibility issues. When I look at your blog site
    in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer,
    it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up!
    Other then that, excellent blog!

  5. Hey there would you mind letting me know which
    hosting company you’re using? I’ve loaded your blog in 3 different web browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot faster then most.
    Can you recommend a good internet hosting provider at a honest price?
    Kudos, I appreciate it!

  6. Good day! I could have sworn I’ve been to this
    blog before but after going through some of the articles I realized it’s new to me.
    Anyhow, I’m certainly happy I discovered it and I’ll be bookmarking it and checking back frequently!

  7. I don’t even understand how I finished up right here, however I thought
    this publish used to be great. I do not realize who you’re however definitely you’re going
    to a famous blogger when you aren’t already. Cheers!

  8. I was wondering if you ever considered changing the structure of your website?

    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 pictures.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

  10. Hmm it seems like your site ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I had written and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to the whole thing. Do you have any suggestions for novice blog writers? I’d definitely appreciate it.

  11. magnificent post, very informative. I wonder why the other specialists of this sector do not notice this. You should continue your writing. I’m sure, you have a huge readers’ base already!
