Goal setting. We all know we should do it. We all know we need to do it to guide the development and growth of our businesses. (even if we learn this the hard way like I did years ago…)
When we reach our goals, it’s important to take the time out and celebrate that achievement. You might say that by celebrating, it sets us up for more success, as our mind and body gets a boost of “happy” and wants more. My business coach at the moment has us share a celebration song with her group of coaching girls and have a dance around our offices when something goes well.
Lucky for her I love to dance!
But, that aside, you need to not just wait and wait until you reach that end point before you reward yourself. If you sit back and wait, and keep working and keep working and never stop and sit and think, hey, look how far I’ve come? Wow, how easy was it to close that sale? Man, I really made a DIFFERENCE today to that client’s life.- if you never stop and celebrate the journey that is moving you towards your end goals, you risk loosing motivation, drive, enthusiasm.
Even the not so great moments, as long as you learn from them, are worth celebrating. “Hooray! I stuffed up that session with a client, but I know exactly why and next time I will do it BETTER!”.
It’s kinda like traveling- it’s not always about the end destination, but the journey and adventures we have along the way. Stop and think about what you have learned, what you have achieved, what you have implemented with success. Celebrate every step that takes you closer to your big goals.
