Celebrating success is truly a wonderful motivator, for both individuals and teams, because it reinforces the meaning behind all the hard work and it shows great appreciation for all of the accomplishments. Not only does it boost our self-esteem, but it motivates us towards accomplishing new goals.
This past week has truly been a week of fun and celebration for nine of the top salespeople within our organization. Now, 2020 certainly has been a year of challenges and a few setbacks. The Superteam, because of their great performance in 2019, were rewarded a beautiful trip to the Bahamas which the goal was to celebrate in 2020. Unfortunately, with everything going on, we were unable to make that happen. These were circumstances beyond our control and it definitely was a letdown.
Fortunately, we were able to put together an absolutely fantastic trip in the oldest city in America—Saint Augustine, Florida. Throughout the whole week we were able to have a lot of fun on the beautiful beaches, unwind, and celebrate each one of our successes. I would say that it was a week filled with absolute joy and celebration. When you have a week like this, you often hear comments of gratitude and excitement about getting back out to work so that everyone can celebrate their future successes in another beautiful destination, being around like-minded individuals.
Now there are a lot of different ways to celebrate success, certainly winning a trip and being around other winners is a great way to do it. You can also celebrate success in smaller ways. It could be as simple as sitting on the back porch with a cup of coffee expressing gratitude for an accomplishment you had that day.
Many people have different ways of reflecting on their success and celebrating it. The most important thing is that you must CELEBRATE. You will find that celebration is part of the journey.
It is absolutely vital to enjoy the journey of your success and celebrate your accomplishments; use this success to fuel your drive to take steps towards new goals. Look back and smile about what you have accomplished. Always be thankful and use the energy to help you continue to move forward.
Whenever you can, look for ways to share your success with other people who may have helped you along the way. Celebrate with someone either close to you or who has been a big encouragement along the way.
For those of you who have watched football games, you have seen all kinds of different victory dance celebrations. I absolutely love it and believe it’s important for everyone to do that. If you’ve had a great day and you accomplished a great goal, break out and do a victory dance in front of the mirror. Better yet, have someone record you and if you’re really brave, post it on social media.
Now, anyone that has been very successful will tell you that it takes a lot of drive, determination, and hard work. Make sure along the way that you reward yourself and celebrate your successes. This will help you build on that success and create even more desire to gain more victories. Keep an attitude of gratitude always and CELEBRATE SUCCESS!
Have a super fantastic week!
