Celebrator or Detractor?

When you hear about the (personal or professional) success of a family member, friend, or colleague, what’s your first reaction? Are you happy and excited for the person? Or, do you view the individual’s success as a negative judgment of you?

In other words, are you a celebrator or a detractor? The first path can leave you with more friends, resources, opportunities, while the second often results in a shrinkage of all this good stuff.

It can take a lot to truly feel appreciative of another’s accomplishments Yet each time you do, your confidence, capacity, and compassion grow. Who wouldn’t want that?

Have a great day,
