Achieving an important milestone.
Feeling great about something you accomplished.
How long will you rest on your laurels?
No, I’m not an ogre who is going to tell you to immediately keep pushing. But I speak from the experience of making a mistake of letting the power and passion that drove me to hit that success point slip away through excessive celebration.
Again, by all means celebrate! Rejoice! Feels fantastic!
Don’t get flabby like I have an think because you did it once it will be easy to do it again.
There are so many sports teams that looked great in one season but couldn’t replicate it again.
They fooled their management and themselves into thinking that they were better than they were.
Do great things and have fun doing them. Celebrate. Get back to doing even better.
