The day before writing this post, I achieved something.
I got all the way up the hill on my bicycle without having to get off and walk!
When I got home, I shared this with my roommates, who immediately hugged my and celebrated with me.
Am I an athlete? – No
Am I disabled and overcoming a huge impasse in my life? – no
Am I trying to make a difference in my life by being healthier? – Yes.
This was not a huge victory over a large obstacle, this was not an amazing success compared to others. – but the first step to being successful, and helping others to be successful, too, is to
celebrate the small successes.
by celebrating this small fact, and the ones that come after, I am ensuring myself of further successes.
So when you hear that something was achieved, don’t belittle it’s value, just celebrate!
