“Every success be it large or small, is proof that you are capable of achieving more successes”. Napoleon Hill made that previous statement in “Think and Grow Rich”. I understood this to mean exacting as it is quoted from “Think and Grow Rich”. You must take the time to appreciate the smaller things in life so that when times are rough you would look back at those small successes.
Success is defined as “the favorable or prosperous termination of attempts or endeavors; the accomplishment of one’s goals.” The “prosperous termination of attempts”, it does not state how many attempts were made just that you achieved your goals. When you are trying to make that first dollar online and you achieve that goal why did you not celebrate it. Sam Cooke sang that “change is gonna come” and one thing that you can be sure is that you can never have highs without lows.
I think that most people focus on the big picture of success so when the little successes arrives that person tends to ignore them. “You can recall it when you begin to lose faith in yourself”Napoleon Hill’s “think and Grow Rich”. One thing you know is that when the small successes is few and far between you will want to quit. I remember many years ago when a new business was opened the owner use to keep the first dollar that he or she made. The owner would tape it to the wall as a reminder that the journey was started.
I have learn that it is better to celebrate the small accomplishment so that the large successes will be appreciated even more. This might be the difference between quitting or continue towards your goals. Celebrating small successes is sometimes very difficult for people that are not accustom to being successful.
