Confidence Model

I want to feel motivated and energized by my own success but getting praised from my boss does feel good. I did the following model to try to change my view after the meeting but I feel that there is something missing.

C: Talk to Boss
T: This was very confidence boosting
F: Happy
A: Work Hard
R: Reach my goals

C: Talk to Boss
T: I’m proud of my own progress
F: Proud
A: Continue to strive towards greatness
R: Get shit done!!

What are your thoughts? How do I allow the feeling that my boss liked my work but not it be a driver for my hard work?
