Savoring Success

Transcript

Savoring success is so important for nourishing our sense of accomplishment and keeping perspective. If you find that you have difficulty savoring success, it's time to tap into that inner experience. Have you developed an inner critical voice or is there a critical voice of someone else you hear that plays in your mind? It's important to be able to step back and notice when that's occurring. Other ways to be able to save our success include practicing gratitude. Gratitude involves being grateful for your accomplishments, for the steps you have made, even if they feel small. Really taking note of those and being grateful for yourself, your unique strengths and qualities that make you who you are. Lastly, practicing mindfulness is very important for savoring success. Sometimes our brain goes away with us. Our mind follows into the land of what's next? What do I have to do next? Instead of staying in the here and now of I did this, this task is done. I accomplished this. Practicing mindfulness keeps us in the here and now and allows you to savor the success that is occurring.
