You deserve to reward yourself, to reward your efforts, to reward your actions, your thought processes, your improvements, what you’re doing, who you are, how you’re helping others. You deserve to reward yourself. And I want to talk about that today because I don’t think enough people give themselves credit where credit is due. Let’s dive into this right now.

Hey, you guys, Dino Gomez here and you are listening to the Secrets of Coaching podcast, where we break down the nuances of growing a seven figure online coaching business. And we are about to get started in 3 2 1.

Ladies and gentlemen, it is about 05:32 p.m.. I’m just about to wrap up the work day. And this past weekend I gave myself a three day weekend And it was phenomenal. It was a holiday weekend. Everybody had Monday off. It was the 4 July at the time of this recording. And so I took, of course, the Fourth off. I was with family then. I was with friends over the weekend for a barbecue on Friday. I cut work at 02:00 p.m. And then I went kayaking, which was a ton of fun, and I went hiking on Saturday. And it was just gorgeous out because we’re here in Summer on the West Coast. And so all the activities, hiking, kayaking, barbecue, with friends I hadn’t seen in a long time, actually, they just had a one-year-old that I hadn’t met yet. And it’s always just a great weekend. Saw family for the Fourth again, and the fireworks are fantastic and it’s a great weekend. Normally, I don’t completely unwind. Over the weekend, I might sneak in a couple of things here and there, but I completely unplugged and recharged. And here is why that is so healthy, is that I had a really productive and strong last couple of months working intelligently, not overworking, per se.

I wasn’t burning the midnight oil, so to speak, but I was working on the right things and I was in the right mindset and I was doing the right things. I wasn’t staying up an extra hour to catch the extra Stranger Things episode and I was getting to bed when I should be in bed, and I was waking up when I should wake up, and I was getting in the workouts that I wanted to get in. I was eating healthy to keep my energy levels high and my creativity high and all those. I did the right things. I had a great two months.

It feels really good.

So it’s very easy for me to go, yeah, I’m going to fully enjoy this three day weekend. And that’s precisely what I did. And I did so without regret or anything else or angst that I should be doing something else. And I just completely unwind. And I ate food that I normally don’t eat, and I just did all the different things. And if you listen to the last episode, we talked about the law of averages. You can do that and still have your business grow as long as most of the time you’re actually working intelligently and productively. And so that’s what I did. So I want to circle that story and kind of what I did over the weekend back to you. Because what is really important to do is to reward yourself for your efforts rather than your results, all right? Because if you are consistently putting in the right efforts and doing the right things and doing the best that you can do, not what other people can do, but the best that you can do, given your circumstance, given what’s going on in your life, the resources you have, all these different things, if you consistently are putting in the right effort to get better, to improve yourself a little bit more each and every single day, you need to reward yourself for your efforts rather than your results, all right?

Because there’s a lot of factors that come into results and as long as you are consistently doing the right things, the results will absolutely come. I was listening to a podcast myself, this individual I really like, and he was talking about this concept. He was like, I’ve sat down with all these multimillionaires and they always talk about they reward themselves for their efforts rather than results. Because if you consistently it doesn’t matter what industry you’re in, we can take maybe you’re a real estate investor, maybe you are in the stock market, maybe you’re in cryptocurrency, maybe you’re online coach and entrepreneur, you run a brick and mortar store, whatever it is, a hair salon, something. It doesn’t matter what you’re doing, right? The economy might fluctuate, your business might fluctuate and performance of team members might fluctuate. You can get unlucky with a promotion. Maybe you run a big marketing campaign, it just doesn’t land the way you wanted it to, or you just happened to choose a bad week to run the campaign. Your online audience isn’t responding as much because of the dates that you chose for this marketing campaign. There’s so many different factors.

And so what you should really do is reward yourself for your efforts rather than your results. Because if you consumed, put in the right efforts, you will get the results that you’re after. And so wherever you’re at right now, if you’ve been putting in consistently, if you’ve been working on improving yourself, getting better, you’re doing the different things, whatever that is, taking care of your family, working out, being a good husband, a good wife, a good mother, a good father, whatever it is that you’re doing, right, if you’re doing the right things and putting in those efforts, putting in those repetitions day in and day out, reward yourself for that. And what it will do is reinvigorate and reinspire you to continue on that path, right? It will keep you from burning out. It’ll keep you excited. It’ll keep you in the game longer. And the longer and more consistent you are with those types of positive efforts, your results will begin to compound, and everybody’s results really kick in at a different point in time. But the more consistent you are with those efforts, the more your results will compound it. Out of nowhere, you will suddenly seem like an overnight success.

All right? And so if you guys haven’t given yourself time off, if you haven’t given yourself an extra hour in the day just to take a nap or to read a book, or just 15 minutes, if you haven’t given yourself 15 minutes recently to just go for a walk outside, whether that’s with the kids, whether that’s by yourself, whatever it is, give yourself a break and give yourself credit and reward yourself for your efforts rather than your results. Because even if you’re not where you want to be right now, if you continue on the path that you’re on, your results will follow. All right? So this is your permission, guys. Reward yourself. Whether that’s you’ve been eating super healthy and you want to grab an ice cream cone, you have my permission. If you’ve been putting in the work, give yourself some credit. Take a look at what you’ve been what you’ve been up to, and be proud of that and take a little bit of a break.
