What do you think of my extraordinary, fancy, dancy, magical, mystical jar?
Last year, I set the intention to write down any breakthroughs I had – big or small – and put them in the jar as a celebration. The intention was that I would read them at the end of the year, which I did, to see how they transformed my life.
A “breakthrough” in basic language creates awareness and alters your actions. Similar to an “aha” moment and on the Richter awareness scale, they can seem like minor ripples or tsunamis. Everything in your life can change from a breakthrough, if you choose.
Do you understand how important every one of your breakthroughs is?
Every breakthrough is essential – big or small. Big ones are great when they happen and are life-altering. Those are the ones that often blow you away and you tell everyone about them.
However, the smaller ones happen more regularly. We don’t give them the significance they should have. We need to pay attention or lose the benefits it can bring us.
When I coach my clients, I always make a big point of calling out all breakthroughs, big and small, as that’s where transformation originates. I make a big fuss about it and share the importance. It’s a “woo hoo” moment!
Here’s an example we can all relate to.
Let’s say you have a minor breakthrough during the day because you realize you “shouldn’t” have said “yes” to something as your workload is already overloaded. There aren’t enough hours in the day and something has to give. This additional work causes more stress and overwhelm for you. You tell yourself, “Next time,” you’ll hold back before agreeing and saying “Yes.”
Often, most people will forget the promise that they made to themselves. They’ll continue to take on more while their well-being suffers. They may silently curse others and themselves, but things don’t change.
Imagine if, instead, you made a big deal about that breakthrough.
Imagine the different outcomes and results you would have.
Imagine if you noticed other areas in your life where you need to set boundaries and started doing so.
Imagine how powerful it would be to take this stand for yourself!
We’re continually either growing or dying. Nothing stays static or the same.
I’m continuing this tradition for this year of writing and adding more breakthroughs into this special jar. The results are too powerful!
Try it and see what you think. And feel free to decorate your jar with stickers, ribbons, or any way you desire 🥳
