Flourish on your achievements
Recently, a student asked me, “How can I prosper in my achievements?” Too often we forget or take our achievements lightly. Even people who have accomplished a lot in their lives often do not recognize themselves for the goals they achieve or the good things they do. “Oh that,” they say, “it wasn’t much.”
In fact, realistically acknowledging our accomplishments gives us a sense of calm confidence and knowing who we are. This trust and knowledge will be of great use to us in all areas of our life. We celebrate regularly and attach great importance to birthdays, anniversaries, graduations and similar events that mark our lives. Celebrating our accomplishments, even in small ways, paves the way for future goals. It helps us focus on the good things we do.
It’s easy to get overwhelmed by the distance between where we are and where we want to be, especially if our goals are big and far-reaching. It’s also easy to get overwhelmed by the many bad things in the world. Paying attention to what we have accomplished and focusing on the many acts of kindness and kindness that we do every day, sometimes without even thinking, keeps our vision clear. We can achieve our goals. We do a lot of good things every day.
How can you prosper in your achievements? Share them with others. Recognize them yourself. Ask others if they have seen you doing a nice or kind deed for someone else. Remember your recent accomplishments in school. Did you get a good grade? Did you do well on a test? Are you up to date with your homework?
Taking a moment each day to acknowledge these accomplishments contributes to our sense of integrity. Keeping the good things we do before us helps us to be honest about the positive contribution we can and do to our workplace, our family, our school, and our community.
Think about it for a moment. What did you do today that made you feel good? Remember the little things, like picking up a piece of trash, helping someone without being asked, as well as the big things.
The more you take the time to think and remember your accomplishments, the more you will find yourself doing. What is noticeable is easily improved, so be sure to take note. Ask your family and friends to help you keep track of your accomplishments. And watch yourself bloom. Good luck friends!
