The power of this process lies in the momentum
In sports, there are always teams that seem to get hot at just the right time. They catch that ultra light beam and ride it all the way to glory, with Kanye playing in the background. Little wins are ultra light beams, and they can carry you to Kanye-serenaded glory.
When you start your day with a little win, and pile them up throughout the day, you begin to set yourself up for massive fitness success thanks to the momentum you’re creating. Once you get the ball rolling, it’s hard to stop it, because you just love winning so damn much.
A little win in the morning could turn into four or five more little wins by lunchtime, and another two or three by dinner. That’s a lot of success to experience in just one day, and that's an empowering feeling.
After a few days, you've gotten so accustomed to winning that you don't want it to stop. And not just that, but the wins start getting bigger. What was once a little win is now something you do on autopilot. That's how habits are created.
