Do you pour a lot into your work and feel like no one’s listening? You push yourself daily to be the best at what you do, serve your clientele and give 110%, but because you’re the owner, no one pats you on the back? This is your sign to give yourself that pat on the back.
When you work for yourself, it’s important to acknowledge accomplishments, cheer for yourself when you meet your goals and reward yourself, even just a little bit for breaking records (even if they are Guinness). You set out to do something big, to be groundbreaking, to help your community or to at least pay your bills. It’s important to give yourself credit when credit is due and smile because you know you’re right where you’re supposed to be.
So, treat yourself to that $5 cup of coffee, schedule a massage, run the bath, or just take your book out to the river and enjoy. You. Did. It. It’s ok to celebrate your victories. You’ve earned it.
