Create a reward

Create a reward for yourself, and then go get that reward. Give yourself something to look forward to, and let it motivate you.

Make it a wonderful, inspiring reward. Make it rich and exciting.

When you’re working your way toward something delightful, nothing can get you down. When you have something to look forward to, you’ll do whatever is necessary to get yourself there.

With a clearly defined objective, it’s easy to figure out what to do next. Eager anticipation fills you with powerful and effective enthusiasm.

If you have trouble getting yourself moving, take a fresh look at what you’re moving toward. Give yourself a good enough reason, give yourself a desirable enough reward, and plenty of motivation will naturally come.

Create a reward you can truly and enthusiastically look forward to. And let it get you moving.

— Ralph Marston
