We’ve been conditioned to celebrate huge milestones and accomplishments while dismissing small victories along the road. If you don’t celebrate–or even appreciate–the tiny successes, it’ll be difficult to celebrate–or even appreciate–the bigger ones.

The Science of Winning
Those minor victories, no matter how insignificant, are there to keep you motivated in the long run. By engaging the reward system in your brain, tracking those modest accomplishments helps to increase your confidence.
This releases energizing “feel-good” neurotransmitters such as dopamine, which make you feel accomplished and proud.
This not only gives you a great sensation, but it also motivates you to keep going and keep that momentum going.
Why You Should Celebrate the Small Victories
Most people are hesitant to rejoice in their minor triumphs. Celebrating something as seemingly insignificant as packing a nutritious lunch, for example, may appear trivial.
You’re not necessarily celebrating the accomplishment; instead, you’re praising your habits. You’re congratulating yourself on your exemplary behavior and the person you’ve become.
It’s easier to grow exhausted and demotivated if you don’t take the time to enjoy your small accomplishments – if you’re simply racing from one duty to the next.
Modest successes differ from person to person, and what you consider a small victory may appear huge to someone else. So take a moment to congratulate yourself on your accomplishment. You display appreciation for yourself when you show appreciation for your minor successes.
