Celebrate the Small Victories
How will you know that you’re moving in the right direction?
Setting up goals, both short or long-term, is always a good idea. Because only when you start doing so is when you will actually start realizing that you’re improving.
People tend to see only what’s negative. Creating landmarks and celebrating small victories on the road to success is what will help you understand that it’s not all lost when things are not going well.
For instance, you can treat yourself by practicing making custom coins that will symbolize different achievements you previously set as goals. When something bad happens, they will be there to remind you that you might lost a battle, but there are still many battles to be fought.
A Lesson – Not a Defeat
This oldie goldie pretty much sums it all up. Adopting a mindset where there are no battles lost really, and that battle can be considered lost only if we fail to get something from defeat is a must.
Nobody’s perfect and it’s human to make mistakes and to fail along the way. This notion is perhaps best addressed in this Nike commercial.
Michael Jordan, who is considered as the best basketball player of all times by many, provides a simple 30-second breakdown of the main reason his career succeeded. He’s talking about missing game-winning shots, losing games and failing over and over throughout his career. At the end of his narrative, there is a powerful conclusion that those things were what basically made him succeed in the end. If you relate to what Jordan is saying in this video, you are most likely to be on the correct path.
