It is absolutely essential to receive acknowledgment for your achievements. However, sometimes we don’t get that from the people around us. Some people may not see the massive success in getting out of bed, getting dressed, and showing up for work. They may see it as something “everyone does” and then wonder why you’re not more successful or driven.
So it’s up to you to celebrate your own successes at times. Reflect on how far you’ve come, while remembering all the things you want to accomplish next. But don’t let your “to-do” list overwhelm you. You’ll get where you want to be.
And in case no one has told you lately, you’re doing a really great job.
