3) All my nagging and coaxing you to believe in yourself has finally paid off. You are destined to make it big, you just didn't know it. Congratulations to the most deserving person in this world.

4) I think I should quit my job now. You keep bringing in the fat paychecks with all your promotions, and I'll bask in the sun in my hammock. How does that sound? Congratulations.

5) Recognition, fame and accomplishment are the three things that I've always assumed to be synonymous with your character. And this promotion has proved me right. Congratulations.

10) You're one of those few people who have been able to make their dreams come true. This promotion is not just a promotion. It's the mark of what you are still meant to achieve in the future. Muah!

Tips for Writing Congratulations Messages

1) Chose your words well and keep your message more formal if you are congratulating a colleague or a boss.

2) If you are writing a message for a friend or partner, try to think of a habit, skill or anything that is unique to him or her. Incorporate that in your message to give it a personal touch.

3) Use Twitter and Facebook to send messages on social media.

4) While congratulating your loved ones, be sure to inspire them to work harder. Motivate them by telling them how you see them growing and being more successful in the future.

5) A handwritten note is warmer than sending an SMS or an email. If you really want to show that you care, write a congratulatory note by hand on a card or a piece of paper.

6) It is probably ok to write a message that is funny or slightly sarcastic in a humorous way. But if you decide to do so, make sure you don't ruin the motive behind wishing someone good luck. Be careful not to end up writing something that crosses the line when it comes to being funny or rude. You could end up annoying whoever you are trying to congratulate if your message crosses that line.

7) Even if you are going to buy a card that already has a printed message inside it, make sure you add a personal touch by writing a few words yourself.

8) If you are arty and creative, feel free to make a homemade card or even write your own poem. These should be reserved for congratulating loved ones.

9) If the person means a lot to you, compliment your message with a gift. It can be something as simple as a pair of cufflinks, a parker pen, a tie, or even something as expensive as a new suit that he or she can use in the new role at work. It depends on how close you are with the person you are writing the message for.
