“When was the last time you watched the players on a sports team when they scored a goal? Professional or amateur, there is always some instant and physical recognition by their peers of their accomplishment. There is a ritual to every goal, every touchdown, every hit and every win. Celebrating the small wins and the big ones creates positive energy for the team and builds momentum.
That momentum builds in each player, fueled by adrenaline, and is transferred to the other team members when they congratulate each other. As more momentum is built, someone else is energized to capitalize on the momentum and score a goal…You may think that celebrating your goal—the completion of a project or task—is no big deal…You might rarely celebrate the small victories at the milestones along the route because, well, you just don’t think it’s all that important…Too often we denigrate our accomplishments with negative self-talk. We tell ourselves we “should’ve” done something different, better, faster, prettier than what we did do…It’s time to stop “shoulding” on ourselves and celebrate all our wins!”
