During our lessons this week, we will talk about rewarding ourselves for achieving the goals we have set for ourselves, and sharing our achievements with those close to us. Our in-class discussion lesson for this week follows below:
“Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any other.” — Abraham Lincoln (U.S. President)
Reward your efforts toward keeping your resolutions and reaching your goals.
We should remember to reward ourselves for reaching the goals we have set for ourselves. If we have a big goal that takes several smaller steps to achieve, we can apply this to each step. We can treat each step as an important milestone, and reward ourselves for each one we achieve. When we’re trying to decide on what rewards to use, keep in mind the size of the goal involved — a small milestone, or a big goal. Also, think about the special things that you really value — things you don’t get to have or to do just any time you want them. We should also share with our family and friends when we achieve an important goal.
- What is something you would value as a reward for achieving a small goal?
- What is something you would value as a reward for achieving a big goal?
- What is a goal that you have set for yourself that you would share with your family and friends when you achieve it?
