“What a massive achievement!” is one of the useful phrases for this week. What sort of situation might you use this in?

For me, last month, my niece got married and the ceremony and dinner reception were lovely. She and her husband planned it all, and got it all paid for in cash by themselves, which I think these days in Australia, is a massive achievement. Most new couples pay for their wedding with credit cards! Or their parents pay. I think the fact that they saved for many months, in order to pay cash, really shows their commitment.

And, her older brother, my nephew, was at the wedding. He and his partner had flown in from Singapore, where they live and work. My nephew succeeded in setting up a chain of restaurants in Melbourne, and then in Singapore. After selling these restaurants, he found a job working for an engineering company in their top management section. Wow! That too is a massive achievement.

I’m so proud of them both! They are so young, but have both achieved massive success already!

Has anyone around you – or have you – had any massive achievements in life?
