I have some big news to share, and I am super proud of it, because it’s the culmination of a lot of hard work. The podcast Self Improvement Daily has reached 1M downloads! It blows my mind, that is such a huge number, and it’s still hard for me to grasp.
The best part is, I didn’t even know what that meant! After having conversations with other podcasters about it, I learned how big of a milestone it is. It’s funny too because I wasn’t even watching for it. I did not check my overall play statistics in months but something compelled me to check, and wouldn’t you know it I was at 990,000.
I say this all because there is a huge lesson in it. When you achieve something, celebrate it! It doesn’t matter that it’s an impressive statistic in the scope of all podcasters. It means something to me and that’s something worth celebrating.
Too often do we resort to comparison and relativity when it comes to assessing our accomplishments. If you think something is worth celebrating, then go for it, and enjoy your win and appreciate the work that it took to get there.
But honestly, I owe it to you. To each and every one of you who has shared an episode with a friend, came back to listen to me frequently, and allowed me to be a part of your life and routine. You have already given me way more than I can ask for, but I learned recently that the truest demonstration of humility is being able to ask for help, so here it goes.
