Celebrate your success! Or why planning ahead makes you unhappy.
Stop making plans for 2020! It will not make you happy. First, start enjoying your success over 2019.
Instead of instantly focusing on the new, I hereby invite you to first pause and look at what you have achieved over the past year. When you are only working on achieving new goals, without celebrating the goals you have achieved, you will never stop running.
Celebrate what is
You will not become happier, as you will not celebrate the successes you have achieved. Which is very unsatisfactory, as you are only working towards the next, the new and you will miss out on everything that is here and now.
So celebrate your successes over the past year. Write them down, share them with your friends and family during the festive dinner. Share them with me, by replying on this email. Thank the people that have helped and supported you, and make it a good party.
Embrace all your successes-including your learning
Did you not achieve your goals? Was 2019 not really your top year, and instead do you even feel like failing? Congratulations! You have been learning and you are in the middle of a transformation. Change is never easy, and learning is difficult. But we do need these bumps in the road, to be able to speed up in the future.
“I never lose, I either win or I learn.” ~Nelson Mandela
Celebrate therefore your learning moments as well. Think about how you can do this differently next time around.
It is about the journey, not the destination
Do not forget to enjoy the journey. Most likely you have started this year with a beautiful goal, or image you wanted to achieve. Something you were aiming to make a reality. Perhaps you have reached your goal and perhaps you didn’t. You can set as many goals as you would like, but life has a tendency to disrupt your plans. And that alone is already a reason to celebrate. You are alive and kicking!
And that is why the past year was a success, no matter what! Share with me what do you have to celebrate, I look forward to reading all your emails.
For now, I wish you a very festive holiday season, and an amazing 2020. I am going to celebrate life with champagne, and I would love to toast to you! Cheers!
