Applaud yourself! it is much easier than waiting for others to applaud you.
It is human nature to want to be acknowledged for the good things we accomplish, and when people do not applaud us, we get disappointed and we start feeling worthless.
We put in so much work into whatever we do, it is only fair to want a little recognition, right?. Well let me tell you this – you are your own best cheerleader!.
Do not get me wrong, “applauding yourself” is not about bragging that you made it. That is definitely not what I am trying to say. It is about being aware and acknowledging that you put your best effort at something and it paid off. Without waiting for someone else’s approval, you on your own are celebrating your success.
The truth of the matter is, only you understand the sweat and tears that go behind your craft. So stop complaining and wondering why people are not applauding your achievements or why you are not getting X amount of likes and followers on social media. When you accept yourself, keep putting in the work and exude positive vibes, your tribe (people who relate to you) will respond back in a positive way.
I challenge you today to start applauding your every milestones and achievement and bear witness to the positive domino effect it will have on your mood, your work (whatever it is), and even the people around you.
