This quote is from a Spark article:
"The science of behavior holds that we will continue doing those things that get recognized, revered and rewarded."
(6 Ways to Maintain Your Mental Flexibility
Learn to Roll with the Punches and Dodge Life's Wrenches
If I want to continue doing things that are good for me, and I am not receiving pats on the back from external sources (which I might possibly get, but with everything else going on around me, I can't EXPECT them), I'm just going to have to find ways to self congratulate (without becoming narcissistic and self focussed, mind you- That may be the hard part...)
Which should promote quite a bit of self dialogue, as to what I want to do, and what I will be expecting from myself, and how I want to be rewarded...
And I'm agreeing with myself that these rewards and recognition need to be Non food in nature... or they will defeat the purpose, I think..
If you catch me talking to myself,
AND answering back,
I'm just on my way to a better Tomorrow.
