Celebrate the Wins

  • We all have a tendency to focus on the negatives or the times we fell short. What if we focused more on our wins? If we make it a priority, we can shift our thoughts to the many areas of our lives for which we are thankful.
  • Ways to reflect on wins:
    - What is a new skill you have learned or a current skill you have strengthened?
    - What is something that isn't on your CV that you are proud of?
    - What are three things you are grateful for?
