Amongst all your hard work, take some time to feel the joy of your success. Do you bask in the glory when you accomplish something? Do you take time to celebrate and reward yourself?
Why celebrate? When it’s all about the work we may have the achievement but, without taking a moment to celebrate we can become stressed and dull – being always focused on the busy. Similarly when it’s all play, we may have excitement and fun, but without results so we can become drained and in denial about our life. Knowing that all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy and all play and no work makes Jack a drained boy – Jack (and Jill!) need to look after their mojo. How to maintain your mojo? Our mojo is that special magic that keeps us moving forward and bouncing back after a setback. Sustain your mojo by creating a healthy combination of work, rest and play driven by a sense of purpose.
Recently I celebrated by taking well-deserved time out. As I lay soaking in a flower-filled, cream bath and followed by a scrub, massage and facial I felt grateful for the many wonderful things in my life. I savored every moment taking the time to feel proud of my achievements and the life I have created around me. Be proud and feel the joy of your accomplishments – take time to bask in the glory and be sure to say I DID IT!
