Celebrating Success In Business

 

Have you celebrated any of your successes lately?

In business it can be extremely difficult to celebrate our successes.

I know from personal experiences that it felt weird celebrating things like my first lead, my first sale or even my first $3,000 day. I wonder if it goes back to my childhood and me struggling to truly celebrate things. I’ve always immediately thought “what’s next?” after accomplishing anything.

When I first learned how to juggle 4 balls, my immediate thought was that I needed to learn how to juggle 5. No hesitation, just straight moving on quickly.

I’m not sure if you know what I’m talking about with that, but it can be difficult for me to celebrate my successes. Lately I’ve been working on this more and more and have found that I feel better after relaxing, stepping back away from work and actually having a mini-celebration for a success.

For instance, I hit 1 million fans on a fan page I have the other day before recording that video. So instead of immediately thinking “I want 2 million!” (which I actually did think), I decided to go enjoy the beautiful sunset and not worry about 2 million… yet 😉

I believe its human nature to not truly stop and appreciate our successes and I’m happy to share with you that my celebrating that success had led to some great ideas during and after the celebration.

So wherever you are in your life or business, take the time to celebrate your little victories.

Maybe you’ve generated 5 leads today, or made your first sale.

HIGH FIVE! That shits awesome!

It sure is a great  feeling, you should do a little dance and pat yourself on the back. That’s something that a majority of people will never experience and you’ve done it!

Try this out the next time you experience a small or large success and let me know what ya think in the comments below!

Is it unusual of me to do both? I used to be a non-celebratory person, too, and every accomplishment, no matter how big or small, I would shrug off like “NBD”. Now I’m all about celebrating milestones enthusiastically yet still continually working towards that one big goal, whatever it is 😉 It’s fun to celebrate!

@Debbie It’s an absolute blast to celebrate everything! Life is full of these mini celebrations too, yet we often over look them. The other day I went jetpacking and I celebrated being able to fly around the sky with a jetpack to my back. It was awesome. What kind of celebrations do you like doing?

I completely agree with everything you said in this post. It’s important to celebrate important milestones, moments or just to celebrate the joy that is life. When I had my first 2,000 day on Clickbank I took a trip to Fl and just enjoyed myself for a week. Great blog post!

@Josh Nice dude! That’s definitely a huge day 🙂 It always seems like its nothing special when we hit these milestones but we’ve gotta remember just how badass we are sometimes!

Keep rockin it bro!
