Can you be happy by celebrating success? At the very least it can help you to feel happier – it is just one way of helping you to see the good things in life, rather than focussing on the bad things.
The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate.
– Oprah Winfrey
One of the ways to feel happier is to cultivate a positive outlook, and this includes appreciating one’s achievements and looking forward with positivity.
In one of Paul McKenna’s excellent books (“I can make you thin”) he encourages us to answer 5 questions at the end/beginning of each week. I reproduce them here – give them a try:
1. The best things that happened this week were:
2. My biggest challenges this week were:
3. I did these things for the first time:
4. What I learned was:
5. My top 3 priorities for the week ahead are:
Simple questions, but they encourage you to reflect on what went well, what could have been better, and how you will go forward based on what you have learned.
Be happy by celebrating success – by feeling good about what has gone well, and also by looking at how you can make things even better in the week ahead.
And, tell me what you think – share what you have done differently, as a result of answering these questions, to be happy with yourself – it’s great to hear your experiences, and I feature some of them in my newsletters.
