Be A Champion For Success
By Moss Greene
Webster defines a champion as someone who enthusiastically supports another. Are you a champion? Do you stand up and cheer when someone in your family, a friend or a coworker does as well or even better than you? Are you always enthusiastic about the success of others? Probably not, right?
As Bette Midler says, “The worst part of having success is trying to find someone who is happy for you.” She was joking. However, it’s true!
Enjoying someone else’s success is not always easy. Letting go of jealousy, envy and resentment can be a challenge. Feeling competitive and not wanting someone else to get ahead of you is probably natural. But, in this case, it’s not to your benefit.
Sincerely wishing others well may take some practice, but it’s one of the easiest things you can do to further your own success. You’ve heard the expression, “What goes around comes around.” When you can truly root for other people’s success then that same support and enthusiasm will come back to you.
So, a good way to fully realize your own potential and make your own dreams come true is to be a good sport and open up your heart to acknowledge and appreciate the accomplishments and achievements of others.
We live in a world of abundance. For those who are in the right frame of mind, there really is more than enough success to go around. And every time someone achieves something special, the possibility of more achievement opens up for the rest of us. So it only makes good sense to get on the bandwagon and be a champion for success.
