Lennon has already seen his side lift the Scottish Communities League Cup and he now wants them to better last term's eighth-place finish in the Scottish Premier League - the Buddies' best top-flight finish in 21 years.
St Mirren are 10th ahead of Wednesday's trip to Kilmarnock and Lennon wants build on Sunday's 1-1 draw with Celtic.
He said: "The cup win has certainly given us a wee spring in our step and we are hungry for more success. But the league is our bread and butter and we need to improve our performances.
"The table doesn't lie. On a plus side it tells us that we have more points than we had this time last season. We have scored more goals and are closer to the top six in terms of points.
"But on the negative side, we are sitting 10th in the table. However, we believe we can achieve better than that.
"We are progressing and the good news is that the season isn't over yet. We have now got some positive momentum and a strong desire to finish off the season on a high.
"We want to improve on our position of eighth from last season, which was our best finish for 21 years. If we can do that, it will be a very special season."
