What if you stop winning?
Herein lies the true beauty of little wins. They're so small and simple that if you fail to get a little win, all you have to do is accept the loss, don’t dwell on it, and move on. Once you've moved on, you just seek out the next little win.
Maybe you went out to happy hour with co-workers and threw back a few more Manhattans than you planned on. No big deal. Just start the next day with a new little win, and you're right back on track. They function as a beautiful way to break the cycle when you feel yourself slipping on your diet or training program.
You don't have to start thinking about how you brush your teeth in the morning, though it couldn't hurt. But other habits that directly impact how you look and feel are a great place to start finding little wins. From what you eat, to how you exercise, to your sleep quality and stress levels. These are all excellent places to start.
Go find your habits and start winning.
