As I was riding on that wave of excitement, one of my colleagues shared her enthusiasm for this accomplishment and stated, “I can’t help but think that when this happens to you, it’s a victory for all of us!” What a tremendous acknowledgement of what it means to be part of a team! Her attitude was spot on and one that we can all learn from. It’s so easy and natural to let our egos get in the way, or to have feelings of jealously when someone else succeeds.
What a difference it would make if we all followed my friends example and truly supported our colleagues. With this attitude we all share in one another’s victories and we all experience the win!
