23-20 Celebrate Your Past Wins

Download and color this week’s
Mandala of the Week

This week’s MotW is inspired by Jack Canfield’s “The Success Principles”, namely Principle #26: Acknowledge Your Positive Past. Canfield states: “Because the brain more easily remembers events that were accompanied by strong emotions, most people underestimate and underappreciate the number of successes they’ve had in relation to the number of failures they’ve had. One of the ways to counteract this phenomenon is to consciously focus on and celebrate your successes.”

Over the next seven days, I’ll be delving deeper into this principle via multiple colorings of this mandala and posting them on the Mandalas of the Day. My plan this week is to remind myself of how far I’m come and all it took, especially the successes, that brought me to where I am today.

So how about you? Do you tend to focus on your negative past? Do you allow yourself to celebrate your wins? Do you allow yourself to honor your past?

“How can we
prepare for the future
if we won’t acknowledge the past?”

An Invitation

I invite you to color along with me this year as part of what I’m calling “The Year of Self-Exploration and Expansion” with all of my “Mandalas of the ___” (day, week, month, year). If you’re interested in a more self-exploration approach to coloring, check out my “Coloring Mandalas as Meditation”.
