Success is a journey, one in which we work toward each day. However, we need to remember to stop along the way and celebrate how far we have come.
Recently at a women’s business networking event, a woman spoke up and said, “I just had an epiphany. I have been focused for so long on where I need to be that I frequently feel inadequate. The “shoulds” in my head say that I should be here in my life, I should have accomplished this in my business.
But today I realized that I am a success. I looked back at what I have accomplished, learned, shared and am amazed by all that I have done.”
When she finished, someone else raised their hand and said. “You know, I hadn’t thought about it that way, but I do the same thing.”
More and more women around the room agreed. So I say, let’s declare today Success Day.
Celebrate where you have come, all that you have learned, things you have changed and the direction you have traveled.
Even the dips and unexpected turns are reasons to celebrate. So take a moment and recognize all that you are and say “Wow – I really am a success!”
Do something just for you this weekend.
Monday, will come soon enough when we take one more step in the direction of our goals, but for right now – Celebrate.
