Too many times we work ourselves to the bone and never stop and take time to simply enjoy the finer things in life. The reason most people continue to work so hard each week is they probably have bills due or past due and can not afford to take time away from work. One of the best ways to get yourself motivated to tackle each day is by giving yourself a small reward at the end of the week. Too many people do not take the time to reward themselves and never get to enjoy the fullness of their life. They will say when all their bills are paid, or they have so much money in the bank, that is when they will stop and reward themselves. The problem with that type of thinking is you will be miserable the entire journey. Give yourself a small reward like a massage next time you reach a small goal and you will find yourself getting excited to reach the next goal.
Getting a massage is a great way to reward yourself for even the smallest of accomplishments. The best way to get yourself motivated each day is to stop setting such enormous goals for yourself that you can’t reach. Set this game of life up so that you can win. The best way to do this is my making smaller goals, and then rewarding yourself each time that you meet that goal. When you start small with a goal of making sure you finish 6 pages of your manuscript by next week, you can reach that goal quickly, and then enjoy the rewards after wards. Start by giving yourself a choice of any of the new coffees that came out this season. As you reach and exceed each goal, make the goals slightly harder and the rewards more enjoyable. A massage is a terrific way to pamper yourself and will not only prove you can reach your goals, you will feel inspired and invigorated to take on your next set of challenges. The key is to set it up so these goals are easy at first so you build up some momentum.
Pampering yourself is not a bad thing. Too many people feel guilty about giving themselves anything pleasurable because they are always giving to others first. family and friends come first, work comes second, and if there is any time at the end of the week you reward yourself with a drink and your favorite television program. Take time to pamper yourself first so that you can put yourself in position to give even more to others. You are not going to be in a giving frame of mind when you are sluggish and tired all the time. Getting a massage will build up your confidence and help you to restore strength in your body. When your body has been massaged from head to toe by a certified professional, you will feel like you were given a brand new body to walk around in.
