Something that I'm not very good at is acknowledging some of the great things that have happened in my life. Like performing well in different events, or getting scholarships or being able to travel all over to do different things, etc. I see people posting all of their wonderful things and showing their happiness and gratitude, etc but for some reason, I don't do that. I tend to see it as "just doing my job". I have always felt that even in your regular job, if you are kicking ass, then you are doing a Satisfactory job, not an excellent one. That's because you should ALWAYS be wanting to do an excellent job. That's part of my built-in definition of doing the "job". I don't spend time admiring my work or recalling some pretty cool things and many times they blend into just everyday memories. And I think this I'm doing this wrong. I don't like the idea of being cocky or overconfident. In fact, everytime I have felt that way I have been slapped in the face and WAY underperformed. So because of this, my excitement is usually muted. But there is a difference between cocky and being proud of a job well done. And while you are trying to change your mindset from results driven to performance driven, you NEED to be able to applaud your accomplishment. It's these things that let you know you are doing well and allow you to feel the happiness of your successes. And this isn't bad. We all know that how we feel about ourselves, the belief we have in ourselves, can dictate the outcomes of the next thing we do. If we don't believe in what we can do, then we won't be able to do (or at least not very well) the next thing in front of us. But here's the thing, it's not about shouting your happiness to the world. It's about taking a second and enjoying the success for yourself. Stand back, put your hands on your hips and stick your chest out as you admire the great thing you did! And it doesn't matter the size of the "thing". It could be that you got a PR on your front squats, or you put some drywall up by yourself, or you cleaned the entire house, or meal prepped for the entire week, or you podiumed in your big race, or that you built a million dollar business. These are all things that are worth your pride. Don't do what I do and let them go to the wayside. Use them to raise your self-happiness and fuel you for the next one! You are awesome! Let yourself know that!! :)
