Enjoy the moment! If, you’ve just accomplished something that feels wonderful, relish it. Don’t look for a catastrophe that might happen. If when you receive a compliment, you typically say something like, “But… I could have…I should have…I wish I had…” – Stop! Those types of statements dismiss your achievement and keep you from enjoying the moment. Whether it’s giving a party, completing an important project, making dinner or winning an award, feel the pride and accept the compliment for what it is and give yourself time to bask in the moment. Let go of all the things you could have done differently or might do next time or thoughts of what might go wrong in the future. You did it!
Tell yourself that tomorrow or next week you’ll give yourself permission to review what you could have done to make your accomplishment even better next time. Tell yourself you can worry about things tomorrow. But for now, just enjoy a moment of triumph and let those other thoughts go!
