marylynnMy best friend, Jodi, is a smart cookie. She teaches high school students and is the mother of two boys. With all that going, she went back to school to get her Master’s in Education. We recently attended her graduation party.

marylynnI'm so proud of her. She definitely sacrificed to achieve a new level of success in her career with all she had on her plate. That's why I call her "Wonder Woman"!

I noticed her flying around in the sky … now I get it. She was in her invisible plane, huh?

Ah, kids these days! Would you be able to figure that out, George?

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!

So let's celebrate an accomplishment of yours! Will you share something that you’ve accomplished recently? Leave a comment below, call us at 888.455.BIGG (2444) or e-mail us at bigginfo@biggsuccess.com.

Party in the Parking Lot!

questionsWe love this time of year! We feel lucky to live in a college town because we love going to football games!

But it’s not just the games … it’s tailgating before or after. Grilling. Chilling. Playing games. The fans sporting their team colors. The friendly rivalry between the fans.

——

It’s a great way to catch up with people. We see people every fall that we just don’t see much otherwise. It’s a great way to build upon relationships and meet new people.

As we’ve said before, some people look at it as networking. We see it as netplaying. Because hanging out with cool people is bigg fun!

How one man became the world’s only professional tailgater

Joe Cahn has a passion for tailgating. He sold his businesses and his house. He bought a motor home and hit the road!

He has become the self-proclaimed Commissioner of Tailgating. Now in his eleventh year, he has tailgated with hundreds of thousands of people at all 31 NFL stadiums, over 123 college stadiums, and 9 NASCAR tracks.

We saw an interview with him where he was asked if he goes to the games. He said he rarely goes inside the stadium. After all, he’s the Commissioner of Tailgating. He doesn’t want to step on the toes of the National Football League Commissioner!

Joe Cahn found his passion. Then he found a way to live it.

If you’re into tailgating, we highly recommend that you check out his site, Tailgating.com. He has some great recipes, party tips, trivia, and even information on parking lots!

On top of all of this, with the Presidential election upon us, he’s started a third political party – the Tailgating Party! One of the planks on this party’s platform …

Forget the left wing and the right wing. Just give me the chicken wing!
