Acknowledge and Celebrate Wins
What constitutes a win depends on you and what you value. It could be your kid making the sports team or you landing a big client. Either way, what do you do to acknowledge these types of victories? Do you take your kid out for ice cream? Do you take your work team, who supported you, out for a celebratory lunch or round of drinks? If not, you should.
Life moves fast. It’s easy to congratulate someone. But many “victories,” even some small ones, deserve something more. Which wins or achievements deserve more is up to you.
At the same time, it is a different question and analysis regarding whether and how you should acknowledge your own victories. There is a fine line between celebrating your wins and tooting your own horn a bit too much. Most, if not all, wins involve the support of others. Make sure to acknowledge those who lifted you up.
So, win with grace and then celebrate!
