I used to spend a lot it of time thinking about all the stuff I didn’t have.
The accomplishments I hadn’t created yet.
The goals I hadn’t hit.
And even when I did do something rad, I rarely celebrated it cause it never felt like it was enough.
Somewhere in my mind I think that by not celebrating or acknowledging what I worked so hard to achieve, it was motivating me to work harder, to do more.
But the opposite happened.
I became less motivated.
I spent the weekend cleaning out my office and came across some paperwork from when I was on the Forbes Coaches Council.
You guys, I was on the FORBES COACHES COUNCIL!
But instead of celebrating it. I buried my head and just work, work, worked.
I didn’t talk about it, I didn’t share it, I didn’t celebrate it. For some reason I thought that would motivate me but instead, it drained me.
Instead, let’s share our accomplishments (big and small!) in hopes of both motivating each other but more importantly ourselves.
