Celebrate the little wins!

Celebrate the little wins! Whether it be a job offer, a sale, an interview, a coffee chat, or even a personal goal, you need to celebrate all of the little wins.

When I started my YouTube channel, it was very discouraging. 100 subscribers, 200 subscribers, and so forth. Same could apply when I scored a coffee chat with company execs, even at my own internship! When I scored an informational interview with my firm’s CEO, I was so excited! If we don’t celebrate the little wins, we don’t muster up the courage to make the big wins.

If you ever feel like you aren’t getting anywhere, don’t look at the end goal, look at your journey and how far you’ve gone. Sometimes it’s a perspective change. 100 views on a video seems small, right? But imagine 100 people in the room listening to you! What are some recent little wins of yours?

Growth Mindset

I think everyone has heard of growth mindset thrown around, but why should you care? Now HOW can you start implementing what I deem as my ingredients of success? What we deem as success and happiness is all subjective, but you also don’t want to lose yourself in results, metrics, and goals. It’s good to have goals to know if you are on track, but you should also trust the process and learn what you can while achieving it. You’ll be surprised of what you will learn about yourself!

Introspection

My Ingredients to Success

I think everyone needs all of this to be successful.

Introspection. Learn about yourself to figure out what you like to do, what you don’t like to do, what you value, and what your tendencies and habits are. It’s okay to not know any of this, but it’s important that you make an effort towards this.

Growth Mindset. Embrace the process! Adapt and mobilize. As someone who is usually one track minded, I sometimes fall behind on this. Results are still important, but it also depends on what you define as success. Goal set in a way of what you want to learn rather than what you want to achieve.

Understanding. Don’t just focus on yourself. Try to understand those around you and you’ll learn a lot you didn’t realize! I actually surround myself with many non-business and non-tech friends. They opened my eyes to a whole different world out there that complements what I lack.

Humility. Even when you are successful, you need to remember your roots and where you come from. Honestly this is probably the most important because you want to always remember to give back as much as you take. Spread the love and the knowledge, and help out your community! Try to understand them and realize you were once there. Privileged or not, everyone wasn’t born with certainty and confidence. You need to work towards it.

What are your ingredients to success? Do you disagree with any of it?

If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.

One of my projects at work is finally going live after two years! It also happened to be my FIRST project despite having done four others while this was still ongoing. It was a long journey and we had many hurdles… SO MANY! But what held us all together – and sane – was teamwork.

Actually we had our milestone celebration yesterday and the client’s CFO mentioned this proverb. It stood out to me on how this applies in other relationships in our life too!

Put yourself out there!

I’m known as an extrovert to many people but I’m really an introvert. According to Myers Briggs, I’m even 90+% Introverted haha. Takes a lot of energy, but sometimes you need to push yourself! Social gatherings could intimidate you but if you focus on genuine relationships, it makes things so much easier. ❤️

“I can, because I do.”

I was raised in a very sexist and masculine-focused environment, but that didn’t stop me.

Now before you say the quote is from The Office, it was originally from Wayne Gretzky. 😂

I’m not a hockey person at all, but this REALLY has been my life motto for a very long time. As someone risk averse, I really tried to pushed myself to do more and do better. I have never regretted it. Thanks Jake!
