New friend from SXSW, Tony Katz, president and founder of Aweli.com, left some comments in our brag basket that explain why we do it, better than we ever have explained it before.
Ok, here’s my brag. I’m thrilled to know other people who understand the importance of being proud of what you do and the good things that hard work brings.
I never understood why people are embarrassed or, possibly, ashamed when good things happen to them. From getting a new camera (congrats Becky) to having your business hit its stride (congrats Pistachio).
It’s ok to have success, it’s ok to have great things happen in your life and it is ok to talk about those things. Embrace the good things that happen and the work that it took to get the good things to happen. Then, focus on more good things, and make them happen. The vision is only achieved through the action.
Keep up the great work, Becky.
Tony followed up via Twitter.
…I can’t tell you how much that phrase means and how much I believe in it….
…when I think of the time wasted in my life by self sabotage…thinking I didn’t deserve or wasn’t worthy of success….
..such a waste..when I made the change, everything changed..when I decided that my thoughts required action, everything changed
…thus…The Vision Is Only Achieved Through The Action…and that’s the one to quote me on..glad you liked my comment overall
That’s why we are here, every week. Open for your brags, comments, and giving you a chance to celebrate with friends. Yes, you can brag on others, but we applaud twice as much when you gather your strength and brag on yourself. Just put it in the comments on this post.
So, go ahead. Brag.
