4 Steps to Properly Treating Yo’Self

1. Allow yourself to celebrate!

Growing up in sports and almost any activity we are taught to be humble and to not make a scene when we do something great. In order to celebrate our small victories we have to get over this humility and have the audacity to stand tall in our victory pose!

2. Set the reward now!

When you achieve a mile stone, celebrate it! Setting a reward gives you something to look forward to and maybe a motivation booster to knock out each goal. It doesn’t have to be something huge, it just has to be something that is reasonable and that you do not allow yourself to do.

3. Have a brag buddy for accountability!

Who are you going to celebrate with? Having a brag buddy helps us to stay accountable and gives us someone to encourage us to keep working towards our goals. Also they are there to make sure that you do in fact treat yo’self.

4. Ask people to ask you!

This is about your personal accountability. If you are asking other people to ask you how you are doing, then you have to progress the status of your goal. Otherwise, you will be sharing the same information every time.
