I’m in a really good mood after a fantastic party thrown by my parents celebrating the exam results of my sister and I.
For the past 3 years I’ve been working towards my GCSE results and on Thursday I finally managed to find out what I got – 10 A*s! I was over the moon and I’ve got to say now that Im glad I paid attention in class over the years.
Anyway, we had a house party with relatives and close friends coming to our house from far and wide. We all had a great time even though I was on my feet for most of the time! But it got me thinking about reaching goals in general.
As a rule of thumb, entrepreneurs strive to reach their goals – whether they be financial, mental or otherwise – and don’t stop until they find success. But what happens when they arrive at this target? Some might move onto the next project and not look back on achievements, but I think that it’s definitely in order to celebrate.
What’s the use of setting goals if you don’t enjoy the benefits of hard work? Its only adequate and human nature that you celebrate the fruits of your labour as this will reinforce the scale of your task. Celebrations could include a quiet night out with your friends, or it could mean a full blown party at a local hall, or it could be a small pat on the back (for the introverts out there!) Either way it’s good to acknowledge your achievements so that you can be proud of what you’ve done, or so you can tell other people about your great reach into the world.
You shouldn’t think that just because you’re an entrepreneur, success is expected. Definitely not. Success should be met with open arms and accomplishment should be recognised. Celebrate good times – come on!
