It has been a little over a month since I posted my first blog and launched the new website. As a coach and author, I don't hesitate to share with my clients how important it is to acknowledge and celebrate, even the smallest milestone - take the time and give yourself credit for being disciplined and following through. Acknowledging your accomplishments provides motivation and will increase your self-confidence.
Although I think it is important to acknowledge and celebrate your accomplishments, I don't take my own advice but do just the opposite. I am my number one critic and don't hesitate to beat up on myself. Although I would suspect that most of us take this same approach. Far too often, we are our own worst critics and don't give ourselves the credit we deserve.
Today, I decided to take my advice and celebrate. Not only did I launch the website, I published the workbook to my signature workshop, Witness the Most Powerful You. The first book launch will be held at the end of March and the workshop will be conducted in April.
Acknowledging my accomplishments over the last thirty days is fulfilling and exciting - I am grateful and empowered with a sense of knowing that I can accomplish anything. This is one of the reasons it is so important to acknowledge yourself - it will help you to believe in yourself and inspire you to keep going.
So today I will begin to practice what I preach. From this day forward, I am going to take my advice and celebrate not only the milestones but also weekly. I will make it a habit of doing something weekly for myself. It won't be anything big, but I will take the time to acknowledge my strengths, gifts, and talents. I will celebrate and appreciate me!
Will you take this approach and acknowledge yourself, not only for the milestones you accomplish but also who you are as a person? It is amazing how good you will feel about you. What will you do to celebrate you?
