Rewards encourage consistency.

I treat others with the same kindness that I extend to myself. It is important for maintaining trust in relationships. I celebrate my achievements as well as those of others.

Although I sometimes set different standards for myself than for others, I extend rewards based on outlined expectations.

Knowing that there is a system of rewards encourages me to be consistent with my actions. This approach works with maintaining a lifestyle of wellness. Complying with daily fitness goals is easy because I acknowledge my own positive results.

I treat myself to a spa day when I hit a major milestone on my fitness journey. It is important to keep myself motivated for the long term.

The same approach works with my kids and their chores. Instead of requiring occasional conformance, I challenge them to make doing chores a part of their norm. I treat them to their favorite dessert after a week of good work.

When doing performance evaluations of my staff at work, I celebrate small things. When they see that even small efforts are rewarded, I gain their commitment to bigger ones. Sometimes starting small produces lasting and meaningful results.

Today, I use a formula of rewards to encourage ongoing positive behavior. I am happy to highlight any person’s achievement when doing so encourages them to keep up the effort.

Self-Reflection Questions:

  1. What are some of the rewards that I extend to my colleagues at work?
  2. How do I ensure that I continue to be a committed friend?
  3. What actions am I consistent with without receiving rewards?

Discover Your Passion: What Are Your Secret Talents?

What talents are hiding within you? 
Many people have grown up believing they didn’t have anything special or unique to add to the world. Perhaps they came from mediocre surroundings or had no encouragement for their gifts so they went unrecognized. Or maybe they repressed their talents because they felt ashamed. Whatever the reason, it’s all too easy to believe our talents and passions are not worth pursuing. Everyone Has Talent
A great many of us are wandering around with the belief that we aren’t all that interesting when it comes to our natural gifts. But we all have more talent than we think we do.
Very often we hear news stories about children with incredible abilities. Many of them are entertainers or child prodigies featured on daytime talk shows. While it’s incredible to see these talented young children, don’t forget about your own children’s talents, which might not be as obvious. They may not be as advanced as the kids on television but everyone’s talents are worth developing.
