RISMedia's REAL ESTATE March 2019 55 Let's be serious—have we ever needed an excuse to throw a party? Of course, setting specific and tangible goals each new year is the first step. But since you've already done that, let's talk about the why, the how, and the fantastic fanfare that follows. Why It Matters If we're going to be serious about goal-setting, there has to be an end- game. What's the purpose of defin - ing what you want to do and by when if there's no formal assessment of those accomplishments? Most of us are quick to punish ourselves for not meeting expectations, but seldom do we revel in the things we've done well and on time. We should make this as much of a priority as setting the goals themselves. Experts also point out that there's a true psychology behind celebrat - ing and that it works to reinforce the mindsets and behaviors that helped us accomplish those goals in the first place. And if we don't? The lack of a sense of accomplishment will only discourage us to act again. Don't Just Do It for Yourself Often, the people we surround our- selves with either directly or indi- rectly contribute to our success, so rather than throwing your own "look at me" party, host a celebration as a way to thank these important in - fluencers in your life. Those people who are truly vested in seeing you succeed will welcome the chance to lavish you with love and praise, espe - cially when food, drinks and fun are involved. You might also think of this as an opportunity to inspire and motivate others. Take the time to explain how you accomplished your goals, and you'll be sharing the wealth. The Fanfare Small or large, the celebration can be whatever you make of it. It can be as personal as treating yourself to a day out on the golf course or at the spa, or when including others, a festive open house at your home or office. Plan it and host it, but, most importantly, enjoy the moment when you can reflect on hitting some personal, critical milestones that will lead to future success—and, of course, future celebrations. RE Realty ONE Group is hosting their annual ONE Summit event in Las Vegas March 24 - 27. The three-day conference is an education, training and networking event for Realty ONE Group real estate professionals, but there are also special events planned to celebrate their personal and collective successes. To find out how you can be part of the celebration, visit http://onesummit2019.com. Cory Vasquez is vice president of Corporate Communications, Realty ONE Group. For more information, please visit www.realtyonegroup.com. T he consensus today is that we hand out too many trophies, too frequently. But, there's still good reason to celebrate our personal successes. Experts agree that we limit future success and growth if we don't recognize our own hard work and the goals we accomplish. Many agree that we should do it with great fanfare surrounded by our friends, colleagues and peers. You Did It! Now Celebrate With Serious Fanfare Commentary by Cory Vasquez
