Every Step You Take Toward Your Goal Needs to be Celebrated

Celebrating can be as simple as saying to yourself, “Nice work with _____!!” Or, “Wow: Every day I get a bit closer to _____.” We all need encouragement. Especially from ourselves. While it may seem silly or pointless to “celebrate” your small victories, you MUST if you want to keep moving along on the path you’ve set. Dopamine is the fuel that keeps us seeking rewards. Each time you congratulate your progress, you give yourself a small dose of dopamine and you’ll work hard to make more progress toward the next step. Without encouragement, all goals die.
