Celebrate the Success of Others

celebrate the success of others

I love to celebrate success.

I mean, we ALL love to celebrate our own success.  But one of the best things to do is to celebrate the success of others.  Not only is it a good feeling, but for me, it’s also an indicator that I am in a good place.

You see, it’s really hard to–sincerely–celebrate the success of others if you are jealous of them.  I mean, you can put on “the face,” but it’s hard to be happy in your heart.  When you are insecure, or frustrated, or angry, it’s tough to be elated when someone else seems to be out there killing it.

You can be smiling on the outside. But your insides are screaming “why not me?”

I understand.  I actually think most people have had that moment.  So don’t beat yourself up.  It’s the reason you know you are in a good place…when you see some good news and you say, “Wow, good for them,” and really mean it.   But how do you get there?  How do you go from a place where you want to scream, to a place where you are happy to see others succeed?  I am hardly a licensed therapist…but here are a few thoughts that come to mind.

Seek Out Reasons to be Grateful

Gratitude is the prescription for a Happy life.  Or as my family and I said here, gratitude is the antidote.  If you want to be in a better mood, have better relationships, and just live a fuller existence, consistently look for reasons to be grateful.  You simply can’t be grateful and pissed at the same time.  Can’t do it.  When you are grateful you are much more likely to be happy for others.

Seek Out Reasons to Celebrate Others

What you seek, you shall find.  Look for it.  The simple act of seeking out reasons to celebrate others is powerful.  What you put your attention on, you tend to find more of.  If you continually look for things to celebrate you will find them.  It’s like a muscle…work it.

Seek Out People You Admire

It’s really easy to celebrate people you love and admire.  As you seek out “things” to celebrate, look for people you WANT to celebrate.  You will find those reasons quickly! And here’s the secret.  The more you celebrate others, the more they want to celebrate you!
