It can be just as difficult to absorb success as to accept failure. Some people never feel that they are good enough. Here are ten tips to help you take in and create the ability to be proud of yourself.

-Believe that you deserve your success. Many people who have achieved a dream feel that they don’t deserve it. This can come from a lot of places, and in psychology, it is sometimes known as the impostor syndrome.

-Don’t undervalue yourself. Where you are could not and would not have happened if not for you. Truthfully, if you don’t give yourself enough credit, it can undermine your self-esteem, and that will affect the success you are trying to build upon.

-Celebrate your successes. Most of the time, ambitious people just move on to the next thing without so much as a sushi dinner. You have to celebrate successes, because the celebration helps embed the success chip into your brain. And besides, you deserve it.

-Forget yesterday. We have all had failures, and those who claim otherwise are lying. You can’t be successful without a few missteps along the way. Own up to past failures, and then let them go.

-Don’t count on tomorrow. Be happy with what you have created, but don’t get caught up in thinking that there will always be an elevator to the top. All successful people have ups and downs, and most of the time that isn’t easy, but being content with where you are right now is a pretty simple attitude adjustment.
