We tend to work hard its either for our family, for the kids, parents and our own dreams. Sometimes we ended out burning out, exhausted and getting stressed a lot by working hard, dealing other people and our managers, fixing problems and getting bad feedbacks. From the hardwork that we do in order to achieve our dreams . What was the greatest gift you gave for self as a motivator or reward for working hard?

Hi resutaa! I don't have a family of my own yet but I do work already and I work for myself I guess. Maybe I work for my mother, too but she's not the primary reason why I work. I work for my future I guess. I work to have money so I wouldn't depend on my mother anymore. I think the greatest gift that I have given myself is the most expensive stuff I bought and it would be my pink netbook. I bought it last year and I specifically bought a pink one because it's my favorite color. My mother was a little against it but I couldn't be stopped. I wanted it and I needed it and I deserved it. I've saved enough for it so there's no reason to change my mind. ^^

I think i keep gifiting myself with many things like i go out with friends for hookah, i go for movie, etc. we just don't have anything to do so we keep gifiting our selves al the time. But if it is thought in other way it is not a gift from my side to my delf because evrything actually everything whatever have i lived yet in my life is of my parents and i haven't earned a single dime yet. I know the time not so away when i too will be passed out from my colleage and get a job for myself and will be gifting myself and will be counted in your category of giving myself. :P

I can't give the best reward that I had given to myself. But to name a few, I always reward myself one thing or another to de-stress too. I go to a parlor to give myself a pedicure. It relaxes me chatting with people there and I feel good because I'm doing myself a favor. I sometimes do my crafts too as a reward for myself. As to motivating, I sometimes find beautiful things so that I feel motivated and inspired. Take for example in writing. I look for a nice pen and a good paper or notebook. I'm always stressed too driving for my parents. My motivation is that I get to travel again or be away from house stress even for just a while.
