george I’d like to think that I could! So last weekend, when we walked in, Jodi was talking with a family member. She looked over and saw us but didn’t really respond. She looked away and then looked back again! She was so surprised – shocked, even – to see you, Mary-Lynn.

We relay this story because there’s something really cool about celebrating the success of others. It can inspire you to bigger success in your own life. This works in four ways:

By celebrating, we acknowledge
When we celebrate the accomplishments of others, we remember to acknowledge our own achievements. It’s easy to forget to do this but it’s necessary to keep achieving every loftier goals.

Celebration sparks innovation
As the saying goes, “Success breeds success.” We are often inspired and encouraged to go for what we want when we see other people getting what they want.

Appreciate to be appreciated
When you appreciate the hard work and efforts of others, you're more likely to appreciate the hard work and efforts you put into your success.

Commemorate to remember
We remember achievements that are marked with special occasions. From mini-celebrations to full-blown parties, it is important to celebrate the accomplishments we make along our journey to bigg success!
