I know this is a crazy funny image...but the message is one that bears our consideration!

I was given the Creative Whack Pack by Roger von Oech by Everett O' Keefe and Verlinda Thompson after attending our Mastermind Retreat in Yosemite last fall.

Everett pulled it out this morning and shared it and I just had to share!

So really and truly, what have YOU done well lately?  Are you taking note of your progress?  Do you see your progress?

What kind of obstacles have you overcome?

I do believe that there are a whole lot of us who do not always take the time to reflect on the progress we have made.  For some reason, in recent weeks, I have been reminded to take note of what I have accomplished...and then:

Reward Yourself!

My coach D'Vorah Lansky  of Reach More Readers has suggested that several times....and you know what?

I kinda like that idea!

How about you?  What things do you do to reward yourself?

Here is a great blog post from Tony Robbins:

"It's important to reward yourself, and your team, as soon as you complete a key task or objective. Why? By rewarding yourself in the moment, your brain elicits positive emotions, leading to the realization that your efforts result in a positive reward. By doing this continuously, your brain will start to link pleasure to accomplishing the task or objective and move towards it in the future. As Tony says, "You can only build on success!"

Exercise: At the end of each day, write down your top three accomplishments, now matter how big or how small. And as soon as you achieve a key task, celebrate. Even a small reward is a great motivator – maybe it's a coffee break, a walk around the block or a mini-vacation. Rewarding yourself for victories, big and small, will make a world of difference!"  (http://humanelevation.tonyrobbins.com/blog/time/reward-yourself)

I invite comments, suggestions and your feedback!  What do You do to reward yourself?
