Love the tiny victories in your life.
Because tiny victories hint that bigger victories are in store for you, if only you’ll stick with it. A tiny victory is the evidence our brain needs to see in order to start the process of changing our beliefs.
That’s why losing your first 5 pounds is the catalyst to losing your next 15.
That’s why getting an “A” on your exam can encourage you to keep working towards graduating with honors.
Tiny victories => belief change => life change
Very simple. But not always very easy.
It’s frustrating to continue plodding along at a snail’s pace, constantly looking for your big win.
Big wins can take a long time. Sometimes, they take your entire life.
So why aren’t you paying more attention to the small wins?
Maybe these small wins seem insignificant to you. Maybe they aren’t the things that you want to brag about to your friends. But they are accomplishments, nonetheless. And they add up.
Over time, they collect, until one day you’ll look over your shoulder and see a mountain of evidence that says, “You can do this.”
And you’ll smile, because you already knew that.
