I can't hide this in any way. I love it when I accomplish something. It's such a great feeling. Even more than that, I really do love getting some acknowledgement for it.
Almost as good, is when I see others, especially friends and acquaintances, doing well. So many people I know, regularly just knock it out of the park. I'm not always as good at this as I truly want to be, but I try, and I try hard, to acknowledge what they've done. I point it out and promote it, as much as, occasionally even more than, anything I've done. Why?
Accomplishment doesn't come from a single bucket or a pie. If one person accomplishes something great, that accomplishment doesn't diminish anything anyone else has done. Further, that accomplishment doesn't take away from others. It's not like, if someone you know does something cool, then, well, now, you can't because the pie is smaller, or there's less in the bucket. Doing good, great, fantastic, that's a truly limitless resource.
So look around. If you see someone doing great things, sing their praises. I'll let you in on a little secret. Doing so, yeah, it makes you feel better too. Share that celebration of others, and get something good in return. That's a great deal.
