The More You Win, The More You Win

Winning gives you energy. It gives you hope.

When you get a little win, you feel good. You say “Yes!” That feels good.

And then you want to do it again and again and again.

It’s just that simple.

So how do you get onto this upward spiral of winning?

Get little wins. Keep on getting them. Congratulate yourself on little wins and celebrate them like they are big wins.

For me, I take cold showers. That’s one of my little wins.

I know it’s healthier for my skin and I do it also as a reminder to myself that I make difficult, right decisions. It’s an example of how I live the rest of my life.

And when I’m having trouble breathing because of the intense sensations and the cold, I’m actually celebrating my strength and my ability to win.

I’m a winner.

You’ve got to find little examples everywhere in your life and congratulate yourself for them.

Get some more that winning feeling.

Maybe you eat the broccoli.

Maybe you do a few extra reps.

Maybe you turn down the alcohol.

Whatever it is, I feel your pain, and I just want to tell you that it is so worth it. All you’re doing is taking the pain upfront. And it is SO MUCH better than dealing with the pain later. You know you’ll have to deal with some pain either way.

We are winners.

Let’s keep doing what we do!

Pretend You’re Done

What would you do with your days if you were DONE?

Say you had all the money you wanted, all the toys you wanted, the girl(s) of your dreams or family of your dreams, whichever would make you happier, 100% health, and no other real challenges to speak of?

If you can answer this question honestly, you’ve taken a huge step into being in touch with your purpose in life.

Our success is a product of doing what energizes us.

Would your life be more enjoyable if you spent most of your time doing things that ENERGIZED you?

Obviously, that’s a rhetorical question.

So let’s pay more attention.

Let’s make a commitment to noticing what fuels us and makes us more in love with life.
