Here are 15 things that may sound not-so-important now but were our biggest triumphs as we grew up:

1. The first time you got a star from your teacher

Or a perfect 10 on 10. Aaah. That feeling of joy!

2. Yourfirst stage performance

Remember the first time you stood in front of hundreds of people? Your heart was beating fast and your throat was dry. You avoided eye contact and gave your 100%.

3. When your teacher picked you over your classmates for a competition

Dance, debate or singing, whatever it was. The feeling that you got when your teacher selected you was just so heavenly.

6. When you got a 5 on 5 in your project work.

Most of us wasted the entire summer holidays playing and had to finish the project a day before the submission. But when we finally scored full marks, it all seemed worth it.
