Rewarding Yourself After a Job Promotion

03 June 2022


You have just been promoted and were given a raise by your bosses for your hard work and dedication to your job. You have been loyal to your company for the past seven years and now, you are holding a management position. All your colleagues agree on how deserving you are of the promotion and the appraisal. You cry out of joy for working so hard, for all the overtime hours you rendered, and for all the job offers you rejected because you love this job and you have a strong sense that it is your calling.

At first, you started out as a fresh graduate with high ideals and aspirations. You knew what you were capable of but were so shocked that “talent” wasn’t enough to prove your worth in the company. Even though you worked hard, you were still that fresh graduate no one really took you seriously.

Then, in your second year, you’ve already stopped trying to impress everybody. Now that you know how the company rolls, you just do your best at every task that is assigned to you. That fire in you has softened a bit but you still stayed disciplined and committed to giving your best performance.

In your third year was when you saw a door of opportunity. There were employees being sent to international conferences and some working for a while in your international counterparts. You wanted to become a representative of your company and to learn from others in the industry as well. You do your best, as usual, stepping up whenever you can.

In your fourth year, you were sent to numerous conferences. You worked a month in Germany and another month in the UK to finish projects with your colleagues overseas. You experience full independence for the first time and you feel indebted to the company for giving you the chance to spread your wings.

In your fifth year, there came job offers from other companies. They got your contact during the conferences you attended the past year. Your stellar performance in your company has reached them so they offered you a higher base pay. It was very tempting to accept their offers but you feel that you haven’t maxed out your growth in your current job. You still have so much to give and learn from the job that you have now that you didn’t want to give it up even if your friends advised you to do so. It was heartbreaking in a way to say no to so many opportunities.

But then came your sixth when you were given a project with a big responsibility. It was going to be a year-long project and you will be handling a team of 10 people. You took on the challenge and produced a brilliant output that wowed your colleagues and upper management.

And here you are now, already part of the company’s upper management just after seven years of hard work. It’s time to reward yourself. It can be a trip to an international destination you’ve never been to but you’ve always wanted to visit. It can be a luxury bag or even a luxury car. It can be an upgrade of your house or even just an upgrade of your current workspace. Speaking of the last option, this will even help you perform better at work.
