We’ve reached the final step in Vivian Banta‘s process for Unlocking Your Creativity. (Posted on Creativity For Life!) This step is one we often neglect.
Recognize our achievement.
So often we tend to downplay what we’ve accomplished. We think it’s prideful to toot our own horn. To our own detriment, we dismiss sincere compliments, refusing to believe what we’ve done or are in the process of doing is a big deal.
To let a moment of recognition, either from ourselves or from others, slip past unacknowledged robs us of an opportunity to boost our confidence as we work toward our ultimate goal.
Recognition generates inspiration and motivation and brings us full circle to:
Step 1: Continually choosing to be creative.
Step 2: Looking for ways to expand our horizons.
Step 3: Being brave and taking a leap.
Step 4: Expecting some failures…and growth.
Step 5: Recognize your achievement. Celebrate!
Cherish your visions and your dreams as they are the children of your soul; the blue prints of your ultimate accomplishments. Napolean Hill
