Do we recognize our successes (no matter how small) and use them to build upon and achieve more success? This show explores – in a personal way – how our perception comes from reactions of those around us. When we are celebrated, we learn to celebrate. When we are told we are bragging, we think we are bragging. Overcoming this may be hard, yet it is possible. Glean insight from this panel’s triumphs and fears about how to track and share accomplishments.
