Developing awareness about your daily achievements is one of the best ways towards an exciting life. Those little victories at work or home, if celebrated, tend to cultivate a feeling of worth. A job completed to your standards, the mastering of a new skill or the small victory over a bad habit or the completion of an assignment; those types of triumphs deserve celebration.
Recognition is after all the best motivator. If appreciation is shown towards something you did, it is worth taking credit for your effort. There is nothing wrong to be proud about who I am and what I achieve. The attitude with which I accept praise or recognition would determine if I am perceived as being arrogant or grateful.
You owe yourself enough acknowledgment for your efforts. Be lenient about your mistakes but very mindful of your accomplishments. Sharing your celebration in a grateful manner with your significant others project a positive image and inspire a positive lifestyle in those around you.
