During our coaching engagements, we talk about your I Want statement (that's the big goal that you're working towards). While uncovering and discovering your I Want, we also talk about what success looks like and feels like. What are the thoughts, actions, and behaviors that reflect the achievement of that I Want statement? How will you measure that success to know you've arrived at it?
We also talk about rewards and celebrations for both big and small results. What are you going to do privately and publicly (or, within your support network) to celebrate hitting those milestones, actualizing those achievements, bringing whatever it is you WANT into your life?
Here's why this is important: celebrating gives you a moment to reflect back on your accomplishments and to remember why that goal was important to you. It gives you a moment to give thanks for the personal accountability you've brought to yourself and reinforces motivation. If you believe in manifesting practices, acknowledging and honoring success will bring more success your way. If you were to google "why celebrating success is important," you'll see hundreds of search results with variations on these themes. However, what matters most is you. YOU did this. YOU accomplished this. YOU deserve to celebrate you.
So, what are are you doing to celebrate yourself? As you prioritize others this season, make sure you're also rewarding yourself for your progress, your achievements, and the fact that you're pretty badass.
Do me a favor: leave me a little note about how you celebrate yourself and your successes. Is it a long walk? A Wendy's Frosty? A dance part in your kitchen? One more episode of that binge-worthy show on tv?
