Why most of us celebrate only big achievements? Why don’t we cherish and celebrate small accomplishments? There is no denying most of us have been taught that a major accomplishment is the “big deal” and that’s why we tend to not appreciate small triumphs.
However, the fact is that these small successes play the major role of stepping stones to our success. So, what are your accomplishments that you don’t think are big enough but are actually quite a big deal? Let’s find them out, shall we?
Loving People, No Matter How They Are
We, as human beings, are not good at loving others. We have a tendency to love people at their very best and ignore/leave them when they are at their worst. If you have started to accept people for who they are and started giving them strength in their weakest moments, you’ve accomplished love and kindness.
Maintaining a Happy, Healthy Family and Career
Did you know that there are many people in the world who are satisfied with their career but not with their family life? It is a really unappreciated achievement to maintain a happy family and career. Many people successfully maintain both family and career but they do not truly value this accomplishment. They take it for granted. You have to stop taking this accomplishment for granted because it paves a path to success for you.
Thinking Back To Where You Started
Even if you haven’t achieved your main goal yet, there are high chances that you have made some strides towards it (small or big, all steps matter). Think of the time when you started to pursue your goal and ask yourself ‘where am I standing today?” For instance, if you started your business a year ago, check how much you’ve grown or how many customers you have made in that time. Even if you have grown a little bit or have tasted little success, you have made some progress. Understand that even the little progress you’ve made in the past few years is a big accomplishment.
This is a really, really important accomplishment. Unfortunately, it doesn’t get as much appreciation as it deserves but it is something that can change the course of your life. You can find numerous stories of people who had the potential but couldn’t achieve anything in life because of their regrets. It is imperative for you to comprehend that regrets hold a person down and restricts him/her to accomplish anything in life. If you have forgiven yourself for your past mistakes, you have accomplished something really big.
