Hi and welcome to another episode of BaranovTV designed to demystify the world of accounts and tax and to help your business grow.

It’s quite a quick episode today. I’ve just been driving up to the Entrepreneurs Circle in Birmingham and I’ve just got out of the car and come in; on the way up I had the radio on.¬†Lewis Hamilton yesterday won his fifth world championship.

It was really interesting that all of a sudden everyone’s talking about the fact that he’s joined the very few people who’ve won five or more; Michael Schumacher obviously in particular was mentioned. So there’s a lot of talk about what he’s going to do next, the fact that he’s going to be with Mercedes for another two years and that will put him on par with Michael Schumacher.

A lot of speculation already within 24 hours of his achieving his fifth world championship!

But Lewis has come out and said in an interview that actually he just wants to enjoy the fact that he’s won his fifth. His words were along the lines of ‘I just want to enjoy my fifth championship. I’ll never stand here again, being a five-times world championship winner’, and I thought actually as business owners that’s a really good point!

It’s very easy for us to be looking at what we’ve achieved and we work on our goals and we achieve that goal and then very quickly we’re looking at the next thing. But actually Lewis’ position is really interesting and very pertinent to say no, take the time, just take a few minutes, a couple of days, whatever it may be. But just to be grateful and just acknowledge the achievement that you’ve made or the position that you’ve got yourself to with the hard work and the effort.

So that’s my thought this week!

Really it’s to just make sure that when you reach a goal and an achievement is just to take the time to enjoy it. Celebrate it with your team, with your friends, with your family, all of the people who’ve helped you towards that achievement and just mark the occasion. Even if it’s just taking a few minutes yourself to go ‘yep I’m proud of myself’.

Those are the moments that you can look back on later when times get tough, to actually make you realise that you ARE making progress and things are happening and going in the right direction.

I’ll leave you with that thought and I’ll see you all very soon.
