Do You Celebrate Your Success?

One way to overcome all the negative press and negative energy around us is to celebrate pleasant things that happen to us daily.

Every single one of us has great things happening to us every single day, but we don’t realize it. It's easy to succumb to the unyielding, depressing news out there. We must maintain a positive attitude. We must move forward.

My husband and I celebrate our success every single day of the week. How do we manage to do that you ask? As we share dinner each evening, we give three examples of good things that we were involved in or that happened to us that day.

I maintain that there is so much good happening around us that we forget. We move past the good and focus on the bad. It's the traffic jam, the inconsiderate person in front of us in the line at Starbucks, the computer program that won't cooperate – these are the things we focus on.

But we all have great things happening to us every day. Even if it is as simple as having a pleasant walk with the dog, or the nice person who struck up a conversation with you at a seminar, we DO have special things happening daily.

So what I want for you is to start practicing gratitude and celebrate your success daily. Put this ritual into practice in your life and take notice of the great things that are happening all around you.
