The big win isn’t the end all of feeling good. It is the little victories that you accomplish on an every day basis that makes you happiest of all.
These victories (the ones that seem very insignificant) can actually make you very happy and can bring about a sense of completion and achievement.
It is believed that human beings respond very well to rewards. According to psychologists, this sense of reward corresponds with feelings ofhappiness and recognition. It is also believed that when people take time to notice things that go right, it means that they are getting a lot of small rewards throughout the day. And this feeling can help lift the mood.
Experts feel that it is very important to acknowledge the good. It is also known to be one of the great ways to become more positive in life. When little things show progress, that means it is on a journey to become better. This makes you more motivated to stay engaged and go through the day without feeling negative or going through moments ofcrisis. It makes one optimistic.
Some of the reasons cited by psychologists that make people feel better and more grateful are – being there for someone in times of need (the feeling of actually helping out someone), doing something that they have just thought of doing till date, achieving something small (could be winning a local match, performing well at your dance class, or a small pat on the back from your boss). These reasons go a long way in ensuring that you stay motivated throughout and work harder to bring a smile on someone’s face.
