Celebrate what you want to see more of.
~Thomas J. Peters
People who are living an extraordinary life have learned it is important to celebrate yourself. When was the last time you celebrated yourself or your successes? Perhaps this idea never occurred to you. From today forward, ask yourself, “How would I like to celebrate that success?” Then follow through with taking action. When deciding how you are going to celebrate, keep in mind that your celebration needs to make you feel good. I like to celebrate my successes by eating my favorite meal and buying myself a little present. During my celebration time, I get really excited knowing that I was able accomplish my goal. I take in the joy from this as much as possible, without letting anyone squash my joy balloon. In the past, I used to share my joy with everyone I knew and many people would instantly squash my joy since they were so unhappy. Today, I set healthy boundaries with others where they simply can’t take away from my celebration.
