What a time to be at the Wish Group! I’m loving the energy that’s happening at the Company. Fresh off a Summer Reunion we were able to receive some great news! We made the Profit 500 again for another consecutive year!
I’m very proud to be amongst some amazing individuals who day in and day out inspire me. I love the fact that we’re growing. It shows that we’re going down the right path. I’ve come to realize that life is about staying positive and celebrating the wins as they come. It’s definitely a long and rough path as you build, but trust me it’s worth it. By taking time to celebrate every success, no matter how big or small, it will build your confidence and make it easier to keep pushing to reach those ‘big picture’ goals. Not to mention, a celebration can give you closure on goals you have been working toward for a while, provide encouragement to continue and make every success even more worthwhile.
It doesn’t end there. It’s a stepping stone. It’s great to know that you have accomplished that goal, but are you ready to celebrate? Your celebration doesn’t have to be a big deal. It can be something you do alone or something you share with others. It just has to make you feel good and help you enjoy your accomplishment. Teams and organizations that focus on and celebrate success create more success. Success becomes ingrained in the culture and people naturally look for it, focus on it and expect it. That’s why certain football coaches and business leaders are always successful. They implement systems and principles that create a culture that celebrates and expects success and this drives behavior and habits that create successful outcomes.
So when you celebrate a ‘Win’, just take a deep breath. Share the news with people who actually care such as family and friends. Most importantly, reflect on the path you took and thank everyone who helped and supported you. Trust me – that goes along way. Lastly, never forget to support someone else in reaching his or her goal as well. It’s very important to give back – believe me, it will come back ten fold. Keep in mind that in order to get the most out of your celebration, you should do it immediately after reaching your accomplishment and before moving on to your next goal.
What do you do to celebrate your success when you accomplish a goal? Let me know, I’d love to know your thoughts!
If you’re reading this, keep working hard in silence and let success make the noise.
