Reward yourself for small steps you make in right direction. We all have disappointing days where we arenít able to
accomplish everything we set out to. This is not reason to lose all hope for future success. Letís say you are on a diet
and slip up at a company lunch. Thatís no reason to give up hope. When you do meet your daily, weekly or monthly goals,
no matter how small or large, you should reward yourself in some way. It would be great if there was a person designated as
our reward captain, ready to hand out rewards whenever we achieve something memorable. However realistically speaking,
many times its up to us to reward ourselves. A reward may include an hour of peace an quite, a new book or blouse, a trip
to salon, a pedicure, and a day off from house cleaning. Anything you can think of that may be a small treat qualifies
as a reward.
Avoid getting into habit of thinking about Ďwhat ifsí. Thinking about what could have happened can be self
defeating. You canít change past, you can only move forward and change your life in future. There is no reason
to dwell on past circumstances, decisions or events. Doing so will make you feel trapped and contribute to your lack of
emotion. Remember, every day you move forward you are becoming a wiser and better person. That should keep you going.
Find others who believe in you. Lean on them when you feel your motivation is lacking. They will help reaffirm all
reasons you deserve best and help you stay on track. If your goals include weight loss for example, consider
having a fitness buddy you can call to encourage and motivate you when you are feeling lost. You can do same for
Value your achievements.You will only remain motivated if you truly believe you are accomplishing something worthwhile.
We all have something to contribute to this world. No one person is better than other. No matter how small your
accomplishment, it helps make you a better person. That benefits everyone.
