As a newbie to Facebook, I have noticed people posting when they are working on something or when they have finally accomplished “it”. I think that is one thing Facebook has given us. A way to spread an accomplishment to more than just immediate friends or family.
There are those who are writing or have finished writing books. I didn’t realize how many people I “know” that wanted to write a book or had written one. It is pretty amazing — they have taken words of wisdom, something they love, etc. and put it down to share with others. They have made “a mark”.
For others, speaking engagements, publicity, published articles — sorta 10 seconds (or hopefully longer) of fame.
First thoughts — wow. . . how could they have done that? How did they get contacted? How did they get lucky to “make it”.
But, then, thoughts of sincere and heartfelt awe — they worked hard, maybe for years, to get a little recognition that they absolutely deserved. Good for them! Get far!!!!! Ride the wave of success!
I feel proud that they achieved what they set out to do. More power to them! It is amazing to know that they actually achieved what they wanted to do. They didn’t just say “I should have” or “I should do _______”. They did it. They achieved.
Don’t just think it or say it. Do it.
I hope we all accomplish something this year that we can celebrate. Make 2011 a good one. I wish you much happiness, prosperity, success and achievement.
Happy New Year,
