Take Care of Yourself

Learning by Doing

Treat yourself like you want to be treated.  Thank yourself for everything you have gotten done.  Rewards work better than punishment even for you.  Keep something beautiful where you can see it.  If you are a guy, keep something out on display that motivates you.  Or vice versa.  Make a list of all the things you have accomplished in life and review it every so often.

Remember an accomplishment for one person may not be one for another person.  For example, graduating from college can be a difficult goal for someone who works their way through college and  who started with a GED.  For another person who had an excellent grades in high school and whose parents could afford to send him or her to college, getting a college diploma might not be too difficult.  For the second person taking a minimum wage job with rotating shifts and supporting themselves might be more difficult.

If you have made a mistake or mistakes, don’t make that a focal point of your self-evaluation.  Mistakes can be a learning experience.  Don’t let one mistake stop you.  At least you can acknowledge it and then you can do something about it.  I am not encouraging you to do something stupid where you or someone might get hurt or die.  You usually learn more from mistakes than you learn from successes.
