Have you recently been promoted at work? Were you able to reach your goals or help someone achieve their goals? Have you been feeling like Thomas Edison, who, after so many tries, finally got the result he was looking for? And do you now feel like you want to throw a party because you now feel like you have a successful life? Well, keep on reading for some ideas on how to celebrate your wins!
Why is it important to celebrate your wins?
You might be wondering why you should learn to celebrate your wins. Well, let us guess: when you think of the word “celebrations,” only big life events come to mind. Examples of these are weddings, giving birth, and so on.
But here’s the thing: we should still celebrate small wins or small victories. Why celebrate your wins, exactly?
Here’s one reason: learning how to celebrate wins, according to eWomenNetwork, helps to increase your motivation. See, we are a goal-oriented society. That means you (and the rest of us) love crossing things off every time you achieve your goals. However, setting goals can get too overwhelming. We also have the tendency to keep replacing achieved goals with new goals, and that can get us pretty burnt out quickly.
But if you celebrate your wins, you can stave off any burnout. When you acknowledge our successes, you add fuel to your motivation to keep on going and move forward. You’ll want to progress towards your goal even more!
Another reason to celebrate is especially if you’re the leader of a team. According to ReliablePlant, when your team wins and you celebrate it, your team members will feel appreciated (yes, even if they know they’re on paid time). Think of it as practicing gratitude towards other people. When team members feel appreciated, they will know that their efforts have been noticed, and this will lead to better productivity.
And remember: whether you have a big or small accomplishment, a win is still a win. So celebrate your wins, big or small! Treating yourself for your hard work is a must.
Now let’s move on to how to celebrate your wins. Celebrating your wins can come in many forms, like any of the following:
Celebrate your wins by relaxing!
One way to celebrate your small victories (or big victories) is to relax and pamper yourself. Reward yourself with bubble baths, a full spa session, a week-long vacation, or even a full eight hours of sleep. Hey, you’ve made progress towards your goal or goals. Or you’ve actually reached your goal. You deserve to take a break and not think about work.
How to celebrate your wins? Invest in yourself!
Remember how we mentioned earlier that upon achieving your goal, you would have the tendency to replace that goal with a new, larger goal? There’s nothing wrong with that. It’s just the natural cycle.
You see, when you set new goals, that only means you don’t want to stop learning. You always want to invest in yourself and become a better person. So if that means investing in a life coach to improve your thinking, get clarity on an action plan for your career path, and so on, do it!
If you’ve reached your goal weight, continue to eat healthily, and hire a personal trainer to track your progress and to improve your health and your body.
If you’ve finished Chef Jimbo’s free Moist and Fudgy Brownies class (which is free if you’ve signed up at The Bailiwick Academy), why not try one of our many other courses? That way, you can level up your baking and cooking skills more!
The important thing to remember is that your success and happiness are two of the things you want to keep on going for you. And the only way to do that is to really invest in yourself.
Buying a gift for yourself is also a good idea.
Let’s say you’ve reached a milestone in your bank account like you’ve made your first million. Make yourself feel special by buying something you’ve been eyeing for a long time. Want that new mixer? Buy it! Want that latest gadget? Why not?
Of course, if you’re slightly worried about money, you should check out the “pinch principle” as explained by Kuripot Pinay. Let’s say you want the latest gadget, right? It costs around Php50,000. If you have a million in savings, Php50,000 is nothing, right? Hence, it’s a pinch only of your total assets.
But if you only have Php100,000, and you plan on spending Php50,000, that’s way more than a pinch.
That’s how you can deal with spending money. Very simple, isn’t it?
Another way to give yourself something without feeling guilty is to match what you’ll give yourself with the level of the win. How to celebrate a big win? Buy yourself a car or a gadget. How to celebrate your small wins? Treat yourself to your favorite drink from, say Starbucks or food from Jollibee, or indulge in happy hour. Just practice, and soon enough, your subconscious mind will take note of it automatically.
Celebrate your wins by treating yourself to some cake!
Cakes have always been associated with celebrations. You can blame the Ancient Greeks because they’re the ones who started the tradition of honoring their gods and goddesses with moon-shaped cakes. The tradition has evolved so that cakes are no longer just for birthdays. You can see them for weddings, anniversaries, and many other special occasions. And we all know we feel happy when we eat cake!
The great thing about cakes nowadays is that you have many options. You have burnt basque cheesecake, Korean buttercream cake, different flavored cake rolls, keto cakes, and so much more. You’d want to just take cake baking lessons to try them all!
So yeah, celebrate your wins by indulging in this sweet treat! You and your win (or wins) deserve the cake.
Speaking of eating some cake…
Okay, we’ll admit: Eating some cake may not sound like one of the most creative ways to celebrate. You know, you just buy a cake and eat it. Done, right?
But that could be just because you haven’t had the opportunity to reward yourself with a cake from the recipes of Chef Joey Prats. His class Special Celebration Class I was such a huge hit, he had to come up with another class.
