Smiley Future – Step 22

Self-discipline is often mistaken with rigor. Today I encourage you to check whether you’re not too rigorous to yourself 😉. Answer those questions:
* How do you react when you make a mistake, get tempted or won’t do something that you should’ve? What do you feel then? What do you think of yourself? 🤔
* Do you tend to focus too much on your weaknesses and even punish yourself for doing something wrong? 🤔
:::
If you are too rigorous to yourself today’s task will be very important ⚠️.
:::
Being too rigorous to yourself boosts your stress level that brings many bad consequences and one of those is, if you remember,  weak self-control 🧠👎 And so it goes again and again.
:::
Task for today: reward yourself! 🏆😊 If you’re not doing it yet think of some reward system.
:::
Start with complementing yourself for every tiny success 🤗 Write down all the compliments you’d like to hear and use them for every little accomplishment. Everyday 😉! Here’s couple examples: „Well done”, „You’re going great!”, „Good job!”, „Keep going!”…
:::
Another step of aware rewarding yourself is making a reward system and rewarding yourself e.g. once a week or at the end of every stage of reaching goal 😉

How’s your training willpower going? 💪 Any progress?
Today we’re gonna learn how to refill reserve of willpower.
:::
Think what is the source of your „I desire” power” – come back to where it all started so to your motivation 🤩. If you’ve been taking notes it would be helpful to look through notes you took during our first steps, especially when we’ve been setting goal using SMART method. Remember? We did that in step 6.
:::
Try to recall why is this goal important to you.
Those questions might help:
* What will you gain when you accomplish your current challenge? Will you reach your goal? Write down all benefits – those small ones and big ones, more and less obvious 😉
* Who else, apart from you, will gain when you succeed? Often our close ones are big motivation to us. Write down all benefits 🤗
