The concept of “Little Wins” can highlight to yourself how awesome one's life really is.
A quick story:
Just last week, my friend and I were invited to attend this conference a few hours outside the city. It started pretty early, so we consequently had to wake up even earlier; about 5:30a.m.
We were driving along this empty highway when we noticed the sunrise creeping out of the horizon.
Now, here is something that I personally take for granted every single day. (For the record, I love sunrises, just not the best morning person)
I started thinking about all these little things that happen in our lives. All these little subtleties that are awesome, but we take for granted on a day-to-day basis.
One of the hardest pieces of advice that I have ever heard is “to want what you have”
That is so difficult given we live in an age of social media and it is so easy to create a perception of one’s life. We slowly develop these bad habits of wanting what other people have.
We start feeling as if we are not good enough or we are not cool enough and ultimately, we reach the conclusion that our life is simply not as awesome.
By acknowledging the little wins that happen throughout our day, we are able to show ourselves how amazing our life really is.
Just think about it…
When was the last time you went out of your way to see a sunrise or sunset?
When was the last time that you allowed yourself to sink into that cup of coffee or that cup of tea and you did not have to run off for a trivial reason?
When was the last time that you acknowledged your lover's smile ?
These little wins though subtle are ever so present.
Try it out! Before you go to sleep every night, try to pick out three to five little wins that you had throughout your day.
It could be things that you are thankful for or things that you are grateful for. By doing this exercise, we are starting to build more of a positive mindset and begin showing ourselves how to live in an abundant fashion.
I really believe that at the end of the day it is the little wins that add up to make a big difference.
