ARE YOU CELEBRATING THE SMALL WINS?
Oftentimes we get too caught up in what our victory should look like that we forget to celebrate the small wins along the way. While people often say it’s about the journey, it seems like… that while we are making incremental progress towards our big bold goals we find ourselves not unhappy, but not ecstatic either about the small victories we achieve along the way.
Here’s the deal. Success is simply the result of small wins that happen consistently over and extended period of time. So do yourself a favor, when you have a win…no matter how big or small. Think of it as a big one and celebrate!
This will help you enjoy the journey on the way towards achieving the impossible.
Make Today Count!
It seems like everything always tastes better when it’s made from scratch. We take a few simple ingredients, add a little of this, with a little bit of that, sprinkle in some love and BAM! We’ve got something really delicious. Perhaps even a family recipe.
The great thing about today being the start of a new month is that, if we choose, we can start from scratch. Let me be clear, I’m not saying that you can’t start over at any point in time; however, it feels right for me to talk about this today.
With whatever you’re setting out to do, remember that everything always tastes better when it’s made from scratch. Stop running around trying to find the the “complete” version of what you’re trying to create. Remember…the best foods and wins in life, didn’t appear because you just added water.
Looking to: Get rich quick? Loss weight in a week? Get your first 1,000 followers? Find the love of your life? You can do all of this: but I can assure you, while your final dish will suppress your appetite…it won’t fill you up.
It’s time to enjoy the journey. Carefully select your ingredients, keeping in my to keep it simple. Take note of how much of this and how much of that you’re tossing into the mix and remember… if the edges get a little burned, it’s okay. That’s a sign you know it was made with love.
Go on…whip something up from scratch this month
This week was a strange week. I was overloaded, overwhelmed, and doing everything in my power to stay focused on my personal and professional goals. While I did have some big wins, I was not grounded. Today I realized that I needed to remind myself that anything BIG worth accomplishing is not going to happen over night, but over time. It will happen if I take the baby steps necessary everyday to position myself for success. So today I would like to remind all of us that it’s going to take a lot of baby steps before we can run with the big boys and girls. I’m at peace and ready to take on today and next week…one baby step at a time.
