“People should stop posting their success on LinkedIn… it discourages others”
I’ve read many such posts on LinkedIn recently.
My question is: WHY?
Why should one NOT share their success?
We don’t know what the person has gone through to achieve that success.
We don’t know what demons they’ve fought in their personal darkness to achieve that success.
Anyone who has achieved something DESERVES to share their success with the world.
If you resent other people’s success, that’s on you.
Let’s seek motivation in others wins and not be judgemental.
Let’s not label it as a “show off” and deride the success stories.
You are truly successful only when the success of others causes you no discomfort.
So, instead of telling people to stop sharing their successes, join them in their celebrations.
After all, if we don’t applaud others, why will anyone ever applaud us?
P.S. Celebrate what you’ve accomplished, but raise the bar a little higher each time you succeed.
