I remember going to my SOMA therapist and her commenting on what an amazing improvement my body had made in the four years since I have seen her last. The next day my chiropractor told me that my spine and overall health was dramatically improved. And the day after that, the dental hygienist told me that my teeth and gums were much improved since my last cleaning.
Is it any wonder I went into the weekend determined to eat well, exercise like crazy, and be the hero on my softball team?
More recently I had a long spell where I had some health challenges that went misdiagnosed. My energy wasn’t as high and my endurance suffered. I was a lot less motivated to work out, and my play suffered.
Is it any wonder that I was more likely to eat pizza, ice cream and junk food more often?
When you get positive reinforcement for things, and have small victories, it makes it much easier to do more to get even better. And when you’re not having any small victories, it can be that much harder to have the first one.
There is a lesson there for you. Might be about health, or something completely different. So where in your life should you be getting some small victories, which will power you on to the big ones?
