Because of this phenomenon, it may become necessary to introduce a system of positive reinforcement as you are in the fragile beginning stages of forming new habits. This means that you will reward yourself for the fact that you’ve kept up with your daily goals periodically throughout your journey. It could be every week or every couple of weeks, maybe something a little bigger once a month. As always, getting out that journal and writing out some ideas will help you come up with a plan that will motivate you.
Think of something that you really enjoy and that would be a powerful motivator for you to accomplish your goals. Perhaps once a week you will treat yourself to some of your favorite ice cream or let yourself buy some clothing or a pair of shoes. Maybe if you can complete two weeks of following your daily tasks, you treat yourself to a pair of tickets to a sports game you’d really like to see. Whatever motivates you and excites you, use it as a way to keep yourself going during those times when the daily task feels more like a chore.
