When you win an award that you worked on achieving, it feels great. But there’s something about winning an award when it’s a surprise.
Case in point: Yesterday I received notification that I’ve been selected as Inside Kung Fu’s Hall of Fame Writer of the Year. When I received word, I sat back in my chair, inhaled deeply and looked into the vast unknown.
This is strange, I thought. It’s the first award I’ve ever been given as a writer despite being involved in the craft for 20 years.
How do I even react to achieving an award I never even thought about?
After a few minutes of contemplation, I felt an extreme sense of gratitude and wonder. I’m grateful for this selection – yet I also wonder which is better, to pursue a goal and get it or to be surprised when you achieve something you weren’t even thinking about.
I’ll take them both – but I’ll keep wondering…
Even so, I want to include all of you in this celebration, so I’m putting together a special on many of my products. I’ll let you know what it is tomorrow.
So make sure you keep your eyes peeled for tomorrow’s email. It’s going to Be BIG.
