Surprisingly, many people have trouble with the concept of rewarding their own efforts. The result should be reward enough. I’m not a trained dog that needs a biscuit every time I do something. Isn’t that rather childish and simplistic? This type of thinking misses the reasons for a reward system. A reward is a celebration. We celebrate weddings, graduations, birthdays, and anniversaries. Achieving a worthy goal, like any other milestone in your life is worthy of your recognition. Celebrate your milestones.
