"The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate."
- Oprah Winfrey
Improvement is the motivation for success. Learning something new and making a weakness a strength are fun challenges.
Embrace improvement by creating munchable milestones:
It can take years for you to achieve a long term goal. As a result, the journey toward goal achievement can be thought of as THE STRUGGLE or something you NEED to accomplish. It’s thoughts like these that can make it hard to stay motivated.
Munchable Milestones are a way to recognize your daily, weekly, monthly, and long term successes. It’s important to take notice of the changes and successes you make along the way. Munchable Milestones are a way of making the journey toward your goals positive and fun.
Tips for developing your Munchable Milestones:
a. Start by attaching a fun activity or prize for accomplishing smaller daily and monthly goals.
b. Create bigger celebrations for attaining those six month, twelve month, and long term goals.
c. Celebrating and keeping the process fun allows you to develop a Success Based Mindset. A SBM is all about the little things. Over time, a lot of small successes not only add up, but they also lead you to your long term goal.
d. A daily reward can be as easy as earning time to plug into social media or to Netflix and chill at the end of the day.
e. A weekly reward can be that favorite junk food that you want to eat, like eating your favorite donut or two after a week of hard work and dedication.
f. A monthly reward can be as simple as tracking your streak of how many days you successfully trained and competed for a given month.
g. Celebrate your six month, yearly, and long term successes with those who care and support you! Those people are also along for the ride, so allow them to celebrate with you.
h. Celebrations are confidence boosters, so the more you recognize your successes, the more you create a habit of motivation and feeling good about what you do!
In the end, you will seek out what you focus your thoughts on. Munchable Milestones will make you feel proud of your accomplishments and feel good about what you are doing. The more you praised and acknowledge your successes, the more you will appreciate them as well!
