When I was growing up it wasn’t really the done thing to celebrate your achievements. Sure other people could congratulate you but the idea of you actually highlighting what you had achieved was more often than not looked upon as ‘bragging’.
Well times have changed and I think it is important for our self-esteem and mental health and well-being to take a moment to celebrate what you have achieved in your life. You are valuing yourself and your accomplishments.
Celebrating Your Achievements
Achievements mean different things to different people and they can be on any scale. Even the smallest achievement is worth mentioning and celebrating. Whatever makes you feel proud of yourself is an achievement.
Why you should celebrate your achievements
- Increases your self-esteem and feeling of self-worth
- Celebrating each step achieved in your goal will keep you motivated and on track
- Builds a positive mindset
- Encourages you to set your goals and keep working towards them
- You become a role model and inspire others
- Reinforces what you are capable of
