Positive feedback can help us feel better about the work we do and build our confidence.

“Celebrate!”

This three-syllable, nine-letter word is a familiar concept yet a relatively alien practice for many of my coaching clients.

“Who, me? Celebrate?” is generally the response to my question, “How are you planning to acknowledge yourself for this accomplishment?”

Rather than taking time to bask in the glory of their latest achievement, they’re already moving on to the next big thing.

As a solopreneur, you want to recognize and reward yourself, but that’s not usually part of the game.

You don’t get an annual review or raise or bonus. No one gives you a pat on the back for your latest client or win. No one tells you how indispensable you are, or how much your work is valued.

If you’re lucky, you get clients who give you feedback after working with you. Maybe you’re part of a mastermind group and get the opportunity to hear that feedback from colleagues.

But at the beginning, the positive reinforcement might be few and far between, and you might need *more* to keep you feeling motivated to do the work.

Just because you work for yourself doesn’t mean you have to give up the good feelings that come from recognition and rewards.

You can develop a customized plan of your own to help you stay positive.
