When building a profitable practice, it’s important to practice humility. Humility foster’s fewer failures and more successes. Are you humble enough to succeed? Humility can fuel success. It can lead to fewer failures in your life, and that’s a beautiful thing. If you failed to realize your biggest dreams, perhaps a heaping helping of humility is needed. “Pride goeth before the fall.” That’s a quote that’s relevant here. Sometimes we get too proud of ourselves, don’t we? We achieve something and we brag about it. We’re very happy with what our hard work accomplished, so we talk about this achievement all the time. We can’t get it out of our minds. It brings a prideful smile to our face, and we think we’re just the greatest thing ever.
You should take some time to celebrate when you achieve anything notable. Just don’t bask in the glory of your success forever. Now that you’ve achieved something important, why not ride that success to more achievements? You’re evidently doing something right. You are in the zone, as athletes say. You’ve probably noticed in the past that success can become a habit. Every time you’ve achieved something important in your life, you’ve seen other successes appear. So why not get started immediately working towards some other dream reality you’d like to experience?
Your motivation is high right now. Your planning and efforts have paid off. You’ve done something really awesome. Neurologists will tell you this is the perfect time to benefit from the chemical response that’s going on inside your body, introducing dopamine –the happy hormone. Dopamine is a feel-good chemical. When you do something really cool. Your body produces more of this hormone. The response is a feeling of pleasure. When your brain and nervous system see that you’re feeling happy, they release other chemicals like oxytocin and endorphins. That combination leads to more joy and happiness and less stress and uncertainty. Psychologists and neurologists say that when these positive emotions are high, you’re more likely to be successful in any endeavor.
Think about the successes and failures in your life. Have you accomplished more when you were grumpy, sad and joyless? Or when you were happy and full of joy? The latter case is most often the answer. Enjoy your victories. Celebrate, then enjoy a dose of humility instead of living the rest of your life bathing in some form or achievement. Move on. Ride the release of success boosting chemicals that follow an important achievement. Then humbly embrace the fact that you have other wonderful things you want to achieve and that you have more work to do.
Do you see yourself as a humble person? Your self-image can determine your success. Find out how on our blog post here.
