Here is part 2 of a 3 part video series to help you to stop sucking at celebrating. Part 1 was about the Motivation Mountain and this one is about the Achievement Muscle.
We could all work it out a little more, but how do we do that and why would we care in the first place?
Watch to find out! AND apply these tangible tips!
Over the course of the next few weeks I'm going to share with you the TOP THREE REASONS to celebrate your achievements and accomplishments.
Here's the first video where I speak about the momentum from the motivation mountain.
You probably suck at this!
When negative things happen we are really good at beating ourselves up. It’s normal in a society that has progress reports, performance reviews and report cards. Yes! You need to know how you did and take stock of the results from your actions. Not so you can punish yourself and feel bad: the opposite in fact. So you can celebrate the good parts, reproduce them and learn from the rest. Then you can continue to up your game.
But do you celebrate the positive?
Of course people share about landing that dream job, they announce when their kids do well and share about their new purchase of a home, a car or a trip. I wonder... are all the things we consider small getting forgotten?
How many of these have you done?
o Attended an event you were nervous to show up at
o Got yourself a Facebook Business Page
o Had a regular date night
o Sent your first Tweet
o Had more patience with your kids, pet or partner
o Said no to something that’s been draining your energy or time
o Got some vegetables or flowers from your garden
o Read before you go to bed
o Remembered to send cards for friends’ birthdays
o Stretched, exercised or meditated in the morning
o Landed a new client or fired one that has been a pain
o Learnt something new
Did you celebrate it?
Did you tell someone you did it?
Did you even feel that it was worth being talked about?
Probably not because we suck at celebrating!
That includes you and me! I realize that I don’t know your actions, but I’ve yet to meet someone who celebrates enough or gets the full benefit out of celebrating.
Over the course of the next few weeks I’m going to share with you the TOP THREE REASONS to celebrate your achievements and accomplishments.
So start writing down all of your accomplishments at the end of every day. Start with today and let's do this together.
A lot of ideas people take to the grave with them. Yep! It’s a strong statement and the honest truth. It’s so sad for people to get to the end of their life and realize:
People say, “Oh I’m going to do this… or I want to do that.” It’s not that they’re lying. They do probably really want to do it.
Then why haven’t they done it?
They’re not ready. YET.
By yet I mean that the day could come. They actually are ready to start whenever they choose. But right now they see obstacles:
How do we know when we’re ready?
When every duck is lined up properly? Heck no! If we waited for that, it just wouldn’t happen. Something would always be out of sync. And really, even if you’re putting together a building, a multimillion-dollar business deal, or performing open-heart surgery you CAN and NEED to start at the beginning.
So how do you know when you’re ready?
When you choose to get an idea going. When you’re prepared to do something with it.
Yes, having a plan is best and that can be the first thing you create after you decide you’re ready. Until you decide you’re ready you’ll never give life to that idea or goal.
5 Steps to Get Your Butt Moving!
1. Decide that you’re ready to start. This is not figuring it all out. This is only saying, “Yes, I will start now.”
2. Tell others what you’re doing. That gives life to the idea. Also, it helps to keep you accountable especially if you arrange something with them to check in.
3. Schedule some time every week to work on it. If it’s not in your calendar it will get put off and other things will seem like they are more important. Even things like laundry and cleaning.
4. Figure out what you need to know. Write a list of the things you need to learn, do or decide on. Don’t freak out! It will be large!
5. Move on a small first step, then another and another. Lots of small steps makes it easier to do, less overwhelming and gives you a lot of celebration points. That will help you stay motivated and stop you from deciding you're not ready anymore.
I trust you'll now have all ideas (that are worth your time and energy) come to life.
