Before jumping on your next goal...

Do you have 𝐝𝐢𝐟𝐟𝐢𝐜𝐮𝐥𝐭𝐢𝐞𝐬 stopping and 𝐜𝐞𝐥𝐞𝐛𝐫𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐧𝐠 your successes/achievements?⁣

I thought I don't, but when I finally managed to get this well-desired certificate (or rather the knowledge that comes with it), I just felt good for a few seconds and thought straight away about 'what's next'. I realised I am much better at celebrating the success of others. ⁣

After some 𝐫𝐞𝐟𝐥𝐞𝐜𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧, I decided I don't want to be a hypocrite and not do what I preach to my clients: to stop and celebrate the achievement of goals - the little things too (of course proportionately and not meaning to go for a spa weekend after doing the dishes once)⁣

so when I got together with my family and we opened a bottle of wine I shared that I succeeded at the CBT exam and we raised our glasses for that.

We 𝐬𝐭𝐨𝐩𝐩𝐞𝐝, 𝐚𝐜𝐤𝐧𝐨𝐰𝐥𝐞𝐝𝐠𝐞𝐝 it, I felt gratitude and we moved on. When I say stop and 'celebrate' I don't mean anything huge, I just mean not to take for granted when you 𝐢𝐧𝐯𝐞𝐬𝐭 𝐲𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐭𝐢𝐦𝐞/𝐞𝐧𝐞𝐫𝐠𝐲, you 𝐦𝐚𝐤𝐞 𝐚𝐧 𝐞𝐟𝐟𝐨𝐫𝐭, apply 𝐬𝐞𝐥𝐟-𝐝𝐢𝐬𝐜𝐢𝐩𝐥𝐢𝐧𝐞 to reach a goal that is a bit (or a lot) of a stretch, but 𝐚𝐜𝐤𝐧𝐨𝐰𝐥𝐞𝐝𝐠𝐞 𝐢𝐭 and 𝐫𝐞𝐰𝐚𝐫𝐝 𝐲𝐨𝐮𝐫𝐬𝐞𝐥𝐟 𝐩𝐫𝐨𝐩𝐨𝐫𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐚𝐭𝐞𝐥𝐲. ⁣

Do you feel resistance when you read these lines? Then you need to do it even more so. You are deserving just like anyone else.
