Cherishing little things helps succeed

Do you cherish little things? Are you grateful for every small thing? I know Iโ€™ve already talked about it but itโ€™s not only for being happier, it helps us with being successful too! ๐Ÿ’ช
:::
How?
When you learn to be happy about the little things you also learn to set smaller goals (because smaller goals will also make you happy due to lower expectations ๐Ÿ˜Š). Once you set smaller goals it is easier for you to achieve them and it is easier for you to be consistent, to not give up hence to succeed ๐Ÿ˜Ž.
:::
For example, lets say you want to start a new business. Imagine that ideally you want to have 100 customers within 3 months but 3 months later youโ€™re angry that it didnโ€™t happen, you are frustrated with your dream and give up on the company ๐Ÿ˜ก. Lower your expectations, be grateful for every single customer you get ๐Ÿ™. Be happy about the 10th customer same way as you were happy about the 1st client you ever got.
:::
When you learn to do so it will be much easier for you to set yourself smaller goals and, believe me, it is way better to set smaller goals but more often than big goal that will only become a burden on your shoulders, youโ€™ll be stressed and full of anxiety to fulfill it and basically unhappy ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ.
:::
Do you understand what I mean?
I used to get panick attacks couple years ago. I was a wreck because I had enormous goals and this awfully big pressure (that I put on myself ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ) to be big, to be someone. I wanted my book to be big, to be a bestseller, to have plenty people talk about it and out of 5000 that the publishing house printed only 600 got sold ๐Ÿ’”.
:::
I was devastated but later on I kept thinking โ€žwow, over half a thousand of people read my book!โ€ ๐Ÿ˜ณ. Imagine a room with 600 people. Itโ€™s a lot of people!
:::
Of course in the end I still want to be big, I still want those big dreams to happen but instead of having 1 big dream and feeling stressed all the time I chose to change it into many small dreams (that in the end can become that one big dream when put together) and this way to be less stressed. I think itโ€™s a healthy choise ๐Ÿ˜‰
:::
Even physically it is easier to take couple small steps than do one big jump! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Cherish little things

Have you stopped for a second and looked up the sky? ๐Ÿ‘€Morning skies in December are my favourite ๐Ÿ˜. Always so pink (at least in Europe) and you donโ€™t have to get up at 4-5am to see a sunrise ๐Ÿ˜….
:::
Have you stopped for a second to smell fresh air ๐Ÿ‘ƒ? To breathe in slowly and relax?
:::
Have you eaten your dinner today and actually saw what youโ€™re eating? Have you thought what it tasted like? ๐Ÿ˜‹ Or you just “threw it” into your stomach?
:::
Just stop and cherish little things ๐Ÿ™.
We are all in such rush, especially now before Xmas, that we keep missing all the little cute details. We take them all for granted ๐Ÿ›‘.
:::
I know we put more and more tasks on ourselves, we all want to achieve more and be successful but we need to stop to breathe from time to time ๐Ÿ˜…. To rest. To gain perspective. To get new ideas. To breathe ๐Ÿคซ. Especially now, during the Holidays.
:::
Please use that time to rest and to regain gratitude for basic values โ€“ good weather, color of the sky, lovely time with family, delicious food โค.
:::
Itโ€™s such a magical time.
Enjoy! ๐Ÿค—

Boxing Day!

It’s Boxing Day!
Key to happiness is appreciating what you have. Lower your expectations. This is what i keep saying: “I prefer to expect less to be happily surprised than to expect more and be disappointed”. Try it! It’s better to be happily surprised than disappointed. Works with presents too ๐Ÿ˜‰
Cherish what you got ๐Ÿ™
