Humans are often hypocritical. We celebrate the wins of strangers, but we don’t always celebrate the wins of our friends and family.
This is because we are often more interested in what is new and exciting, rather than what is familiar and close to us.
We also tend to value the opinions of others more than the opinions of our loved ones. This can lead us to overlook the achievements of those who are closest to us, even though they may be just as deserving of our praise.
How often do You Celebrate the Wins of Friends and Family?
It is important to remember that everyone deserves to be celebrated, regardless of their social status or popularity. We should all make an effort to celebrate the wins of our friends and family before considering celebrating strangers. When we do this, we create a more positive and supportive environment for everyone to thrive.
Tips for Celebrating the Wins of Others
Here are some tips for celebrating the wins of others:
- Be genuine. When you congratulate someone, make sure that you mean it.
- Be specific. Don’t just say “Congratulations!” Instead, take the time to mention what the person accomplished.
- Be supportive. Offer to help the person celebrate their win, or simply let them know that you are proud of them.
- Be inclusive. Don’t just celebrate the wins of people who are like you. Celebrate the wins of everyone, regardless of their race, gender, age, or social status.
- By following these tips, we can create a world where everyone feels valued and appreciated.
PS: Don’t wait to be celebrated. Your friends and family may never. Be your own cheerleader. Blow your horn loud and shamelessly!!!
