You don’t need to share those wins… you can write them down, say them in your head, or say them aloud to the air as you’re air-high-fiving… but I find that sharing my wins (and hearing others’) helps boost my mood!
Soooo…. Let me share a HUGE win with you!
A little background – I never finished the last 5 classes to get a college degree. I never formally learned bookkeeping, or CEO-ing. You see, I’m a classic figurer-outer. The imposter vibe was STRONG. (It also likely pushed me harder to get better! WIN!)
Well, there’s a company called Pure Bookkeeping. They’re a pretty big deal in my industry as they’re basically setting bookkeeping standards for all of us figurer-outers out there. Last year, they reached out to me to be on their podcast, The Successful Bookkeeper. I. Was. Floored. I really WAS a successful bookkeeper! I wasn’t just a know-it-all hack!
Well, they recently reached out to me again. Apparently, they think that I’m an expert in my field and they wanted me to review their new portal and make suggestions before going live. ME?!?!?! YUP! Me. Giving input on a system that thousands of bookkeepers use to streamline and systemize their businesses.
It’s kind of the ultimate confirmation that my own self-esteem is warranted. (So I guess that means that maybe the imposter syndrome wasn’t all-the-way gone?)
Anywayssss…. I just wanted to share this win with all of you and remind you to celebrate the small stuff.
One of the things that we do at BBA is to spend the first portion of our weekly team calls celebrating wins.. small and large, business and personal. It was surprisingly hard at first, for everybody. But it gets easier each week and it FEELS REALLY AWESOME! (We even nudge each-other now to give air-high-fives.)
