It is a well-known fact that women are such major multi-taskers that they rarely take time to celebrate what they have accomplished because they are already saying ‘Okay, what’s next on my list?’ We live in a very stress-filled world that focuses on the negative news and rarely on the positive so, you need to be vigilant and focus on the positive achievements in your life. When you feel more positive energy it affects your mind, body and soul in a healthy way.
CELEBRATING is the action of marking one’s pleasure at an important event or occasion by engaging in enjoyable, typically social activity.
And that event can be as small as finally learning how to upload a photo in Facebook or finally getting your business cards printed. For a home stager something larger to celebrate in the beginning is that ‘first client’ – whooooooooo hooooooooo on that one. When you finally land that sale with a realtor who you have been trying to get on board for the last six months – that’s worth celebrating in a big way!
SUCCESS – no one can define this for you except you.
For some people success is about the relationships they have attained over the year, for others knowing that they created a fantastic looking property with not much to work with is a great feeling of success. For some home stagers creating a 90 day marketing plan for 2013 can be very satisfying and rewarding. For most home stagers seeing positive cash flow with more growth expected in 2013 is pretty awesome. Finally using social media to increase brand awareness might just be the marketing tactic that made your year.
I resonate with this one published and written by Bessie Stanley in 1905. (Another adaptation is often and wrongly attributed to Ralph Waldo Emerson).
