"The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate." ~Oprah Winfrey
I have lots to celebrate this week! I reached the breakthrough goal I set in August, 2010 at Breakthrough to Success with Jack Canfield ... to write a book and become a best selling author.
At the time I set the goal, I had no idea what I would write about or how to go about achieving best seller status.
I am so happy to tell you that with the help of my teachers, mentors and supporters, I reached my goal! My book, Match Meets the Metaphysical: A Transformational Journey to Light and Love, is published in both paperback and electronic formats and I made it to the Amazon Best Seller List!
The process was transformational in many ways. I faced fears I didn't even know I had and asked for help when I wanted to pretend I didn't need any help. There were times when I almost sabotaged the process; times when I put the project on hold; times when I simply wanted to give up. But with the help of my support system, I kept taking the next right step. I walked the talk I teach to my students, clients and audiences and I got the results I was shooting for.
I will never forget two things about this process; the day I hit send on the final edit and the moment I hit the best seller list. I was sitting on my porch with my cat on my lap and my dog sleeping at my feet. They both opened up their eyes and witnessed my happy tears. Speaking of happy tears, make that three things that I will never forget about this process ... taking the time to celebrate! My book launch party was so fun and it was wonderful to be surrounded by the people who supported me all along the way.
After a couple of days of rest, I spent the day surrounded by the flowers from the launch party answering emails, phone calls, interview requests and opening congratulatory cards. I am beginning to prepare to clarify my next breakthrough goal. Perhaps it will be to get the book produced as a movie. Maybe it will be securing the funding for that teen curriculum I've been piloting for nationwide release. Or perhaps I will get more clarity next week while I spend 5 days in the training room with Jack Canfield.
What's your breakthrough goal? What can you commit to that will quantum leap your career, your life, your success? Who are your support systems to help you get there? What is your next right step? And how will you celebrate the small successes along the way to your breakthrough success?
