I know it’s been a wild crazy ride of a year and I’d like to talk to you about something a little fun. I got thinking about this today because I was speaking to a client who is feeling a bit down about what was going on in her life all the things that she’s failing about. She’s tired. It’s the end of a hard year. It’s been a hard slog. She’s struggling and she’s just in her words trying to get through the next few weeks and she can’t wait for the new year.
I’ve heard a lot of people saying stuff like that as she started to tell me all of the things that are going wrong for her. I asked her to pause there and rather than saying, well what’s going right tell me about what’s going right?
It was interesting that she started off well down that path but then she kept diverting back to the failures and I kept steering her back to the successes and after a few false starts, she ended up rattling off a huge list of successes. And then the fails become relatively small in her eyes. She felt better.
She realized that she’d been over focusing on the negative and that there was still so much more to celebrate than there was to worry about.
Are you feeling like it’s been a tough year, like you’re in a bit of a funk. Well, strap yourself in because I propose that there’s a lot to celebrate even though it’s been a really difficult year for a lot of people there have been some really significant moments in the world some huge improvements and some things that have gone well in your life.
In my experience, very few people take the time to truly celebrate success and focus on what’s gone right. I want to invite you to do that right now. Even if just for the next few minutes no matter who you are or what your life is like, I want to talk about what’s gone well for you. There are definitely some things let’s just ask the question.
Why do we need to bother to celebrate success? Is it really that important? Well, I say, yes it is. It’s fundamental to our emotional health.
Sure, you can sometimes go down that negative pathway the ‘woe is me’ pathway that ‘nothing is working’ pathway this happens to all of us. But I want you to know that you can flip things around you can get out of that funk. You can recognize your successes and very very quickly work out that things aren’t so bad that you did better than you thought and that maybe there’s some hope that you can move on.
Start listening so you can get out of that negative funk and start celebrating your successes.
