Successful people work. In fact, for most successful people, working hard is probably more comfortable than relaxing. They know that working harder and smarter is the best way to get to your goal. Some successful people forget to reward themselves for all their hard work. You have to do things that make you happy, keep you mentally and emotionally motivated and make you feel good.
In my book, The Art of Starting Over, I suggest that you have a working list of things you like. This list should include ways that you can enjoy yourself. For example on my list I have things like buying shoes, traveling, playing tennis, going to the movies, getting a hot stone massage and my favorite educating my nieces and nephews in a fun way.
As you think of things you like add them to your list. When it is time for you to pamper yourself you don’t have to think about it or be creative. You can go right to your list and choose an activity. Go shopping, get a massage, play tennis, spoil your children, take a trip or whatever you deserve. You know how hard you work; give yourself something to smile about.
It is your reward so do what makes you happy. Remember even small accomplishments deserve rewards. And if you are wondering when to pamper yourself, try this. If you constantly and consistently work hard daily, make time to pamper yourself once a month. Another way you could do it is to set milestones and reward yourself when you hit them. Whether it is landing a big client, finishing a lengthy project, keeping your promise to your spouse or helping your child win the science fair, do something that will put a smile on your face and keep it there until the next pamper day.
Knowing what make you happy…Now That’s Presidential!
