“You can’t build on top of success you don’t acknowledge.” – Dallas Travers
There’s a dark side to being so driven.
We can be so focused on constantly improving that we can forget to look back, acknowledging the success we’ve had. I bet we can all relate to a time where we landed a PR lift, or a raise at work… where we were psyched… but only for mere seconds. Before we knew it, we were already thinking, “what’s next?” The finish line moved yet again.
It’s not wrong to be passionately driven.
That’s not where the harm comes from.
The harm comes when we don’t celebrate our victories.
We aim to live in a state of true “blissful dissatisfaction”. Grateful for every experience that comes our way, all the while in a fiery pursuit of the next best version of ourselves. Think of it less as a “pat on the back”, and more of a foundation that we build on. As the quote above teaches us, we can’t build on top of success we don’t acknowledge.
