Why and how should we celebrate our small achievements
Hello, my awesome readers.
Last week I did a 4-day series called, “My thoughts” Where I shared with you, my thoughts about
Today, I wanted to add a little sprinkle of motivation to last week series, by helping you understand why and how should we celebrate our small achievements; with this in mind, let’s look at what does the word achievement means.
According to merriam-webster.com/dictionary/achievement means “A result gained by effort”
Now we can agree that life is hard, and sometimes doing the little things (Dr apt, writing a new post etc.) seems to be the hardest. Therefore, we must be kind to ourselves by motivating ourselves often.
I know some of you might be thinking I do reward myself when I achieve something by going shopping, dinner etc.
It’s great that you reward yourself, but sometimes it takes money that you may not have to make those rewards happen. I also believe we forget to reward our small accomplishment.
For this reason, I’m going to show you a simple, affordable way to motivate and cheer yourself on.
First, you need to buy different kind of motivational stickers; they don’t have to be expensive, but make sure they are beautiful. (See below)
Life is not only hard in kindergarten, why should we only get sticker acknowledgment then. As I mentioned earlier life is hard so use stickers when you
- Updated your resume
- Got your laundry done
- Budget your money
This sticker reward will help you in two ways.
One it will increase your self-esteem by giving your life perspective a positive boost.
Second, it will help you keep better track of what you have achieved and the tasks you need to finish in order to accomplish your dream goals.
If you look at the picture below, every task I completed I placed a sticker next to it.
On the left side of the paper you will find a sticker that says “Later” this lets me know what I need to get done.
Can you see how the stickers reward method, helps me know quickly what I have accomplish. (See Below)
I challenge you to try the sticker reward method, it helps me and I know it can help you. But before I go I want to say thank you, to my fellow creative women queens, because I know they will be trying this reward strategy method. When you do try it, leave me some feedback here (click the link that says Feedback) What “small task” would you give yourself a sticker for?
