#51: Stop Skipping the Celebration!May 11, 2023
I have a confession.
I've been watching my podcast downloads go up since we started this thing, but every time I approached a round number (3000! 4000!) the thought that "I should celebrate this" ebbed as quickly as it flowed.
When Episode 50 came and went last week with ne'er a whisper of a clinking champagne glass, I had to pull myself aside.
What's goin' on Park! Why are we celebrating ZERO things??
My answers (albeit not super conscious) were exactly what I hear from clients when they explain why they shouldn't, can't or just don't want to *celebrate*:
- It's not good / big / impressive / __________ enough yet: We're at around 4500 downloads right now. Surely good or REAL podcasts are supposed to have like 45,0000 by now though, right? Shouldn't we actually be embarassed by this number? Don't say it out loud, let alone "celebrate" it!
- It's not worth the time (...It'll cost me): There are more important things to do & talk about than taking time out of my real work to acknowledge only mild accomplishments.
- I'll lose sight of where I still need to improve: If I celebrate now, I'll miss everything that isn't good enough yet
A fundamental part of my Coaching is that self-celebration & acknowledging WINS regularly (read...every. single. week.) are non-negotiable.
Because without this, you condemn yourself to a life of "I'll be better when..." and "I'm not celebrate-able yet."
You turn your life into Product over Process. And that's no life any of US is trying to lead.
I hope this week's episode inspires you to take a beat. C-E-L-E-B-R-A-T-E. Literally anything.
This practice has changed my life, and dozens of clients' lives.
If what you're after is a healthier, more peaceful relationship with yourself - and a HAPPIER day-to-day life - this is the episode for you.
