When was the last time you stopped and properly congratulated yourself? The last time you thought, Yeah I nailed that, or treated yourself to something because you worked hard and you deserved it? At school, it was gold stars or rewards for good grades, but as you grow up, celebrating success becomes less about others telling you 'well done' and more about acknowledging your wins yourself.
Together with TRESemmé, we’re exploring the many techniques, tools and tips for helping us all own our presence in the workplace and overcome self-doubt. We’ve put power poses, positive affirmations and modern power dressing to the test, and now we’re delving into the power of celebrating your wins. However big or small, taking note of your own successes really helps to combat Imposter Syndrome and the niggling negative feelings that can wobble us.
A thin line separates owning your success from humble bragging, of course, but this isn’t about a Facebook post or a call for appreciation on Instagram, it’s personal.
Helping to open up the conversation and encourage us all to take time to celebrate our own wins, we talked to five passionate women, all doing things their own way, about how they go about celebrating their own successes.
