As a businessman or woman, it is easy to get caught up in work, even when you deserve a moment to celebrate. When you achieve a goal, sign a new client, close a deal, etc., take a moment to give yourself credit for all your hard work and determination. Do not take any of these moments for granted, even if you only play a small role in your field. Take a minute, step back, and reflect on how you contributed to the big picture. Cherish and embrace your brightest, most successful moments like these companies have:
