celebrateHi everyone!

I’ve been meaning to ask you this; how often do you celebrate your success?

I was just thinking that we’re always so quick to point out our own failures. We dwell on them and then spend all of our energy obsessing about our mistakes. I’m guilty of this too, I just try my best not to show it ;)

Think about the last time someone gave you a compliment. Were you quick to brush it off?  Or did you quickly think of something to compliment them back with?

But really, why do we do this?

Of course it’s important to take note of our failures – it’s a stepping stone to keep learning and growing, but it’s also important to celebrate our accomplishments because by doing this, we’re giving ourselves positive motivation.

 

Most of the time, we let our successes pass quietly by. Why don’t we linger in the moment, no matter how big or how small they may be?

We already know that when we celebrate our achievements, we tell the universe that we’re happy with ourselves and with the outcome of our efforts. By doing so, we open ourselves to even more success, so I think it’s about time we start doing more celebrating and less nit-picking :)

With that in mind, I want to share with you some tips on how you can appreciate yourself everyday. Hopefully they will inspire us all take the time and effort to indulge ourselves in our moments of glory.

5 Ways To Celebrate Success Everyday:

  1. Accept and enjoy the compliments
  2. Thank everyone who supported you
  3. Reflect on your achievement and linger in the moment
  4. Write down your success and put it in your success journal or somewhere you can see it
  5. Help and inspire others to achieve their goals

Now it’s your turn! Tell us what your greatest moments in life are – it doesn’t have to be anything huge, just anything that’s given you immense personal satisfaction and happiness.

Also, if you have any personal way to this, like maybe toasting to yourself, let us know too! I look forward to reading them!

Cheers,

Jill

    I have a musical greeting card from Hallmark that plays “Celebration”. I just open it when something good happens. The words on the card say, “Today is a really cool high-fiving day! Everything’s awesome and going your way! It’s your chance to shine and get all of your props… (then inside it says)Just celebrate huge so the fun never stops! And I dance around when it plays. Auditory, visual and kinesthetic celebration!

    I know what you mean Jill. I just started a new website and have been really keen to get feedback, ingenuity (ideas), and fulfill expectations.

    So it takes a moment to really reflect back on the good points. Things I appreciate and look forward to sharing.

    Thanks.

    I do try to celebrate the little things in life although it's so difficult at times. Recently, a friend of mine to whom I had put a lot of my trust and expectation really stabbed my back.Well my first reaction was of anger and hatred but then I calmed myself down and acted with patience. I replaced heartache with forgiveness and letting go.All of this happened silently IN me without any witnesses to the outer world.But at the end of the day, it felt great………I will celebrate it with my favorite pizza with extra cheese…:)

    Hi Jill, 17 months ago I was retrenched. I decided I had to start my own bussiness. I went ahead and started my bussiness on a leap of Faith and the smell of a bank note. It was really tough. One day going to work, feeling very desperate, I said out loud “Lord, I have to succeed for everyones sake, I am handing all my “needs” over to you and letting go. Well, today I employ four people, pay all the bills as well as putting my grandson through University. All Glory to Him! I CELEBRATE every day with much Gatitude,Attitude and Happiness. Ask in faith, believe and you will receive.You can manifest in prayer!I am only sorry it took me 58 years to realise this.

    Isn't it interesting that we have to remind ourselves to celebrate our successes. And, we need to start with our young people, teaching then to all-out celebrate every little success. I'm going to include The Art of Celebration on my website http://www.NotJustSchoolwork .

    I'm with you on this, Dawn. I realized just yestereday that if we live for earthly desires, we continue to hit dead ends. We must put our faith in the right road and then we'll see all the success and joy that God wants for us.

    Along with the whole thing which appears to be building inside this particular area, all your opinions are generally rather stimulating. On the other hand, I beg your pardon, but I can not give credence to your entire strategy, all be it refreshing none the less. It would seem to everybody that your remarks are generally not totally justified and in actuality you are generally yourself not really fully convinced of your argument. In any case I did appreciate reading it.
