How do you remind yourself of goals achieved?
How do you keep your past successes in mind as a way to propel you on to new achievements?
Im a firm believer that the best predictor of future behavior (or success) is past behavior.
As a result I make a conscious effort to not brush off or down play achievements (as so many of us do) as soon as they’re over.
Some call it prideful (Ill never forget my personal training client who did).
I choose to call it “when I am successful I feel rewarded. when I recall those feelings of being rewarded Im more likely to keep doing what Im doing and remain successful.”
(I know. Prideful is far more concise huh? Eh, you’ll have that.)
I do this in two different fashions:
I journal my feelings about my successes.
I write about everything from how it felt to see my efforts pay off to the physical sensations of how it felt to succeed.
I can open my journal to any of these entries (please to see getting signed by my first literary agent & cross reference under my very first experience lead climbing) & virtually be transported back to the moment they occurred.
If Im ever faced with a new challenge & have that moment of how on earth did I ever do this before? will I be able to do it again? Have I ever succeeded at anything?! panic all I need to do is reread my own writings.
I also remember successes & complimentary words/thoughts this way:
