Everybody likes to be told when they are doing well. But why wait for others to tell you? I stay motivated by patting myself on the back. Not because I am "self-centered" but because I need to hear myself acknowledge my accomplishments. Others around you can tell you all day long you are doing great...but if you don't believe it yourself, their commendation won't matter. Celebrating even the smallest of accomplishments holds me over until I can achieve something BIG!248
