Do you ever find yourself in a rut? You know, the feeling of just going through the motions. Same ole same ole, day in and day out. Or maybe, this isn’t you and you’re just waiting for your moment to shine. Shining, also known as, the moment you accomplish something so big everyone can’t help but notice. The praise will come rushing in like the water from a broken damn headed towards the town. Increasing your serotonin levels just enough to boost you out of your funk and back into your happy go jolly self, again.

Does this sound like you?

If so, you’re not alone. In fact, it’s vary common in high achievers. Those of us constantly pushing toward accomplishing the next big thing. You know the Macro wins of life. Macro wins? Macro wins are the moments high achievers crave. The moments that create the big praise. The rush of being congratulated, recognized, or honored.

Here are a few examples:

  1. Graduating High school or College
  2. Buying your first car
  3. Obtaining first mortgage
  4. Getting married
  5. Starting a business
  6. Writing a book
  7. Establishing MSI (Multiple streams of income.)

You get the picture. It’s the finished product people often see after you’ve gone through the grunt work, not- so- easy processes, or struggles to finally cross that finish line. These are Macro wins, and boy do they feel great!

Macro wins, got it. Now, what about the Micro wins?

Think about the Macro wins as the goal you want to accomplish, and the micro wins would be the ample number of tasks needed to accomplish the overall goal.

For example:

The Macro win = starting a business.

The micro wins = creating the business plan, branding material such as a name, logo,etc., and acquiring funding.

“There are at least 10 micro wins for every 1 Macro win.” -Lisa Nichols

Remember not to work yourself into a rut or get burned out from not taking the time to recognize the struggles, sacrifices, and energy that goes into accomplishing the Macro win. People only see things from the outside, or the finished product. Don’t let thier praise be the only time you celebrate. Be your own motivation and celebrate yourself!

“Baby no I don’t play, now eat the cake, Anna Mae. Said, “Eat the cake, Anna Mae!” I’m nice, for y’all to reach these heights you gonna need G3…” -Jay Z

Celebrate those Micro wins. You deserve it!
