Celebration is an active state, an act of expressing reverence or appreciation. To be entertained is a passive state – it is to receive pleasure afforded by an amusing act or a spectacle… Celebration is a confrontation, giving attention to the transcendent meaning of one’s actions.”

–Abraham Joshua Heschel

As we approach the end of 2013, I would encourage you to make a list of everything you’ve achieved this year using these 7 coaching questions to help you:

  • “What were your biggest achievements this year?”
  • “What are you most proud of?”
  • “What have you achieved that has surprised you?”
  • “What ‘smaller’, less obvious things are you proud of achieving this year?”
  • “What steps have you made towards larger goals, that you need to acknowledge yourself for?”
  • “What did you fail at or make a mistake on that needs recognizing? What did you learn and what are you proud of in how you handled it?”
  • Finally ask, “What will you do to celebrate, recognize and acknowledge your achievements?”  (Tip: Use the 4 Ws. What, When, Where and Who you would like to celebrate with?)

THEN…chose how you actually are going to celebrate your It could be a personal ritual, a dinner out with someone special, a hike up a mountain, buying yourself something special, a massage, a group event. If you need help brainstorming celebration ideas and rituals let’s talk!  Then commit to one. The more significance it has for you, the more uplifting and memorable it will be!
