| Celebrate Yours Successes
|I’ve just returned from a week in Connecticut where we attended my wife’s, Denise, PhD graduation ceremonies at Yale University.
It was three few days of processions and ceremonies combined with parties and celebrations.
We loved it and I’m so proud of her but it made me think how seldom most of us get to celebrate our successes in life.
It’s also true that most of us ignore the old adage Success Breeds Success!
We think that success is something we have little control over – we put it on a pedestal and consider it out of reach.
You may not have been told this before but the fact is that we get to choose what we consider a success. It is up to us to celebrate success every day so that small successes become bigger successes.
All of the great motivation speakers and writes stress the importance of keeping a Success Journal and of finishing each day by writing down at least 5 successes for the day.
These can be as simple as; getting up 10 minutes early for a few minutes of breathing exercises before starting the day, remembering to give thanks for your family and friends, eating a healthy breakfast and preparing snacks to take to work, completing your 30 minute workout, writing in your Success Journal…
Remember you get to choose what a success is and it can be as big or small as you like.
You’ll find that something magical happens when you actually write down these successes. You start to feel more “successful” and your confidence grows and grows. Soon your small successes become bigger and bigger successes.
Celebrate your successes!
Yours in health & happiness
