The ability to get lost in comparing where we are versus where (or who) we should be is so easy. True, it is a natural tendency to do so and it has never been in our faces as much as it is now. Social media, digital media, regular print, billboards, TV, and movies.
The combination of these is causing us to receive messages of inadequacy all the time. So how do you combat these messages and potential FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out)? You must track your wins!
Here are 7 reasons why you need to track your wins:
1 – No one else is going to celebrate your wins for you
2 – You begin to focus on the importance of small wins (which in reality are HUGE wins!)
3 – You build positive momentum when you track your wins
4 – You see ways to help others celebrate their own wins
5 – When you track your wins, you attract positive and uplifting people in your life
6 – You shift to a possibility mindset
7 – It is super fun!
8 – Bonus: You can look back on a positive record of your past wins which is especially inspiring in tough times.
Make sure to track your wins ASAP. Use a dedicated notebook, set aside time to reflect and record daily. If you want to take it up a notch, share your wins with an accountability buddy.
