In this day and age, social media has become the main tool of communication. We can easily see or hear news from our friends or colleagues through the chat feature, insta stories on Instagram, or Twitter, including news of friends who may have just gotten their first job.
Some of you may feel insecure, feel left out, and find it difficult to motivate yourself when comparing yourself who haven't got a job with those who have. For this reason, it is important for you to stay focused on what you are doing.
As mentioned in last week's article, it's a good idea to break down your big goals into smaller ones so that the steps you take can be clearer. As you keep trying to achieve those small goals, don't forget that you have the right to take a break. You need to give yourself a break so you won't feel burnout and demotivated too quickly. One way that you can do is self-reward!
Self-Reward is a form of self-appreciation after successfully achieving something. When we want to achieve something, of course it takes a lot of energy and effort. For example, as a fresh graduate who finally managed to reach his first job in the current pandemic era, surely you have tried a lot, starting from preparing for job seeking such as making a CV and cover letter, noting a list of companies that you have applied for, and to how you motivate yourself to keep going when you get rejection from various companies.
Here are some self rewards that you can do!
The point is, do things that make you happy and get your energy back. Remember, don't let this self-reward go on! There are still limits so that we can be disciplined in doing something.
