First thing I need to know before I get started is: Can you keep a secret? Do you Pinky-swear? Because the things I am about to share have not been told to anyone before.
First, I will ask: Do you reward yourself for your hard work or do you wait until you reach a goal ? ….. ::Why not reward yourself as you go?
Now, here is the secret I am going to let you in on. (Remember, you promised not to tell).
Would you work in a job and not expect to get paid?
Me either; I did not do volunteer work at my job!
Then, why not be a good Boss now and make pay-days for yourself?
What I mean is: I reward myself as I go.
..::: I put CASH in my secret stash!
I got this idea from my friend NOMI-822 who stashes after each work-out..
I used to do it and somehow got away from it. But not now!
It's quite simple! Every day I invest time in exercise activity-I put
secret stash! Don't get me wrong; I exercise for all the right reasons; I love good health and feeling good but why not reward myself and add an incentive and to make it more fun?
For instance, I know it may sound silly, -(oh well)-as I already have a PC, a laptop, and a Kindle, but one day I wandered into Best Buy and my eyes popped when I got a load of the 10" Kindle!
Now some might say, " when I see something I want I just buy it on the spot."
With the reward system that would quell the incentive and the feeling of accomplishment. (It's a value that has stayed with me since I was a teenager and earning my own money on my first job ).
Suggestion: Don't make the reward too far off but a reasonable time frame.
I have actually doubled up on my activities on the "Easy pay as you go" plan.

And last: You know how Spark Coach tells us to Visualize seeing ourselves the way we desire to be...::Well go window shopping, or gather some pictures and paste some together in a simple collage and keep it where you will see it often! …::: Dream about your desires and then take the necessary action to walk you right to the very store where you can dress the way you dreamed!!
Would we ever keep going if there was not a promise of a better tomorrow waiting for us?
Feeling better--looking better-improved health and spending your saved stash money on fun things rather than Doctor visits for sickness and costly prescriptions! … I know which I choose.
I am still a 'kid at heart' and look for ways to keep life fun! ..
Thanks for stopping by today 'n remember: you promised to keep my secret! Pinky-swear!
