Celebrate! One of the Keys to Unlock Business Success
As entrepreneurs, we can get caught up in our to-do lists. Or our get-to-do lists, as I like to call them, because after all, we are the creators of our own work!
Setting intentions, taking action, getting things done - these are all important.
And what happens when we do get something done? If you're anything like me, you are already on to the next thing on the list.
Barely a pause or breath in between, just onward.
That's how most entrepreneurs are. We do what needs to be done.
What ends up happening over time is, all these do-in's just start to blur. One action leads into another, and we still feel like we're not accomplishing enough. There's always something else on the list.
It's time to put a stop to that feeling. How to do it? Celebrate!
Every little accomplishment, achievement, a-ha - they all deserve a celebration.
That's why I started WOOHOO Wednesdays on the Work Alchemy Facebook page - it's your chance to celebrate every one of your business successes in the past week. Here'syour personal invite to join in that opportunity to celebrate!
Celebration is an acknowledgement that something important has happened. You've completed what you set out to do. You've achieved a goal. You've had an insight.
All of these move your business from the realm of vision to the realm of where you live every day.
These achievements, no matter how small you think they are, they are what move you into a position to serve, to influence, to impact your clients and the larger world.
The other thing that celebration does is to open up the space for gratitude.
Gratitude is so valuable. Research shows that being grateful for what is improves your well-being, your health, your finances, your relationships.
One of the single most important daily practices I have is to acknowledge my gratitude, at every meal and before going to sleep. It brings you into a place of knowing all the abundance that is already here. And that's the platform for creating more.
Your focus on what you've already done will shift you from, never enough, to wow, look at all I've done!
And don't celebrate alone - share it with someone! Let someone else know what you've done, someone who you know will celebrate with you. That added energy will give you aboost, something you need to go back to your list and get on with the next thing.
So whether you celebrate on a Wednesday, or end every day with a big WOOHOO, make it part of your regular practice. It supports you, and it supports your business.
So WOOHOO! You've got a lot to celebrate!
