Acknowledgement ~ Reward Yourself
Wow, all this talk about how you must remain consistent, and keep your eye on the prize, and to be assured all the decisions you make are for your goal, and your success… can be stressful, and doing them all can be EXHAUSTING! I don’t want to ignore the reality that always being on top of your game, and making the right decisions, is difficult, it takes courage, discipline, being bold, and making the decisions that are bittersweet.
So I want to tell you, good job! Way to go! Absolutely wonderful that you have the will, the knowledge, and the courage to make the decisions, and the ability to follow those decisions through fruition. It’s always nice to receive acknowledgement for our achievements, and many times, we don’t receive as much as we would like. Our accomplishments always merit some acknowledgement, whether it be on a small, large (or national!?) stage. Our hard work deserves an “atta boy”, and those can come right from us!
So acknowledge your accomplishment with a reward. It doesn’t have to be big, but just something small. Perhaps an ice cream, or a half an hour of leisure reading (not homework, or for work reading, but a book or magazine of something that interests you), something for you, a little bit of acknowledgment and motivation to keep you going, towards that goal, and not let you run out of steam.
And hey, we all like to be acknowledged and rewarded (and spoiled) every now and then! J
