One thing we often forgo in our rush to the next level is celebrating what we've accomplished. Acknowledging how far you've come is crucial, not just to propel yourself forward, but to build the habit of enjoying where you are. Stories are told so often of folks who never allow themselves a breath until they reach their goal. The trouble with not celebrating the steps along the way is that you likely won't appreciate when you finally reach your goal. Mindfulness, gratitude, and a healthy dose of "I did that!" won't slow you down; they'll keep you fueled to keep going.
