Celebrating Success & Self-Employment 🧰

I’ve been so busy writing blogs, jumping on random Zoom chats, and… well, doing my day-job that I didn’t even realise I’d chalked up twenty weekly blog posts. The big 2-0. That’s something to celebrate… but I missed it. And now we’re here at post 21!

Yep, it’s bloody easy to forget to celebrate success. Often, I find that I’m just looking to my next win – I’ve always got to get my next hit of success. But what’s the point in working and working if we don’t stop and smell the roses from time to time?

You don’t need me to tell you this.

It’s common sense but for some reason we all seem to forget it all the time. We need to reflect on our wins (and our losses, for that matter but that’s another blog post…), bask in the glory of a job well done (but not for too long), and acknowledge the time and effort put into a worthy task.

I don’t think there’s an exact formula for celebrating success. I think it’s just doing something that makes you happy as a reward for your hard work. Pretty simple really.


For once, I actually did a little bit of research for a blog post. I did a quick google search and found a Tony Robbins post about celebrating success. It turns out Mr Robbins had already asked his followers about the various ways they celebrate success. Convenient for us, I reckon!

So, here are some cool, very easy, and intentional things that you could/should be doing to commemorate your achievements (big or small):

  1. “Having a great cup of coffee, sitting back and contemplating what I’ve accomplished. Being thankful, and using that energy to propel me forward.”
  2. “I look for a way to share it with the people that made it possible.”
  3. “After seeing all the great touchdown victory dances on the red zone football show, I am currently creatively working on my own victory dance.”
  4. “I celebrate with someone I really care about. We just do whatever comes to us in that moment – no plan, we just go and experience it.”

What am I doing to celebrate my success?

I’m writing this post and I’m acknowledging the work I’ve put in to date. I’m nowhere near done and my writing still has a long way to go but this is an important milestone on this journey that I’m on. And you know what? It feels good 🎉


As I type this while sitting on the couch (relaxed blogging!), I’ve got Billie desperately trying to get comfortable next to me. She’s a bit sick of my arm moving so much as I type… given she’s trying to use it as a pillow [as seen in the photo below!]
