When we don’t own own wins, we can’t repeat them… and we certainly can’t amplify them.
When we don’t own your wins, it becomes the equivalent of saying:
“Oh, I just got lucky.”
“Oh, it just sorta happened.”
“Oh it was a fluke.”
No, no & NO. You created that. How?
Well, if you owned it, you could investigate, learn & know.
Passing your wins off to fate or chance isn’t just a disservice to your future success, it robs all the people who could be impacted by you that experience.
Recently I had a win that felt huge, but yet I had a hard time owning it. I had my highest revenue month happen in one day in my business. And, I wouldn't allow myself to own that, to celebrate it.
Well, she's on a payment plan so it doesn't count… that was going to happen anyway.
Well, her payment got delayed so it just happened to be made on the same day.
See what I mean? In convincing myself that I literally had nothing to do with this day, I wasn't able to allowing myself to see the role I played in making this happen. I wasn't examining the ways in which I can create that again. I wasn't SEEING how it all matters, the connections, the conversations, the processes, the tools, the yes's to the intuitive hits. I actually did create that day, and I can create it again, and again, and again when I allow myself to see how I was instrumental in making it happen:
The same is true for you and your wins. Not just your wins, but your gifts. Sure, the world would be fine and remain status quo if you don't own them… we'll go on as-is not knowing the difference… but man, imagine if you did own them. Imagine the ripple that could create. Imagine the fellow soul you could help ignite.. and then imagine what they could do. See what I'm saying?
In a world of oh it’s selfish to gloat, to brag, to talk about the good I do we aren’t doing anyone any good. What if being selfish and owning the shit out of your wins was truly the most selfless thing you could be doing?
Our wins create a ripple effect beyond our knowing. Own them & create more of them… let your ripple effect create waves.
