What does it take for you to consider something you’ve done to be a success? Do you have to finish 1st in a provincial running race, build a multi-billion dollar corporation from the ground up, or write a book that goes straight to the New York #1 Sellers list before you celebrate? I’m going to let you in on a little secret…it’s waaaaaaay easier than that!
Have you ever heard that like attracts like? Well I believe that in the universe as we know it, such is so. So why not create more successes and celebrate them in order to attract more successes to celebrate?
It seems too easy right?!…Well…
Every night before I go to bed, I grab a pen and my day planner and I write down all my successes that I achieved that day (I come up with at least 5), and then celebrate them by patting myself on the back, or by sharing it with someone who celebrates with me. Here’s an example of what I write down;
- woke up early when I planned to (no snooze)
- hiked Grouse mountain in the am
- got awarded 2 voice over jobs to produce
- stuck to my diet all day
- got a pay raise at my part time job
- scored two goals in my roller hockey game tonight
That is simply an example, but what I’m getting at is that everything can be considered a positive accomplishment if you look at it with the right mind set. Holy Crap, you’re a human being who is alive right now, and you accomplished something that you set out to do…you went to the gym, you worked on your hobby instead of watching TV, you washed the car, you answered those emails you’ve been planning to for a week now, you didn’t drink alcohol for the whole week, you saved up cash to buy that couch instead of putting it on credit…that is a success and you SHOULD celebrate it. You may think it’s weird or embarrassing at first but try it, in the privacy of your own home. Enjoy it, and know that by doing this, you’re simply creating more opportunities to celebrate more successes…who knows what the next one could be, maybe its that 1st prize medal in the race, maybe you become financially free, reach your all time weight and health goals or start that new reflexology practice…who knows?! Keep celebrating them, and they’ll keep coming!
