Like most of us, you probably have a hard time staying motivated. You look around and all of a sudden you feel crippled with overwhelm. You feel like you have a lot to do. You ask yourself, How am I ever gonna finish all of that? You feel like you don’t have enough time.

You took control, you sat your goal and you actually achieved it. It’s time to reward yourself for reaching that goal. Celebrate each milestone no matter how small it is. Buy yourself gifts! Get something from that “To Buy” list of yours. Take a couple of days off to relax and refocus, Guilt free of course. Try keeping a diary so that you can see how far you have come. For example, you used to save $100 per month now you’re able to save $1000 per month. Without writing this information down, you may soon forget it. The diary can be helpful through the “Bad Days”, when you feel down and blue. You can actually read all about your progress and feel better.
