Have you recently taken a moment to count the blessings in your life? Or do you find yourself feeling as though your goal is too far to reach? I have been in both positions. As I have traveled through my journey of life, I have learned that it is important to celebrate the now.

Celebrating the small wins makes your journey ten times more rewarding and fun. Rather than contemplating on the fact that you’re not where you are, take a moment and reflect on the fact that you’re not where you used to be. Changing your mindset will provide an extremely different outcome to your goal.

When you get stuck on how far you are from your goal, it causes you to be more negative about your progress. With that negativity, it can cause a pause or even end the motivation to continue chasing your goal. Celebrate the growth you have experienced within the past few months. Celebrate waking up in the morning and getting a chance to restart the day. Celebrate the small pieces to the puzzle.

When you congratulate yourself on those small factors, your progress becomes seamless. It will also move faster than you imagine. By celebrating more, you have more fun on your journey. The more fun you have, the sooner you’ll reach your goals. You may even realize that the goal is unnecessary and where you are in your journey is exactly where you are meant to be.

With that being said, be more loving to yourself. Pat yourself on the back for taking that small step. Small steps lead to big results which lead to creating a life you love.

You are destined for greatness, don’t lose sight of your goal but also remember to celebrate the now.
