Momentum is defined as:
1. Force or speed of movement; the product of a body’s mass and its velocity
2. The impetus of a body resulting from its motion
3. Driving power or strength. Figuratively, momentum can refer to the tendency of a person or group to repeat recent success
Why am I talking about momentum?
Because momentum is one of the most overlooked keys to your success.
Last year, I took a trip to Honolulu for a personal and professional development retreat. I spent 6 amazing days with a group of women that not only encouraged me but also validated me. They let me know that my ideas were not out in left field and whatever I wanted to accomplish I could if I put in the work and simply believed.
After that trip I had momentum. I left Hawaii with a plan and I put it into place and things started happening. I continued with the plan and more things started happening. I was in business! From that day to this day I have not been without an uninterrupted flow of clients.
But now I feel I need to take things to the next level. 2015 is quickly coming to an end and I really need to kick things up a notch. I realize now that I have begun to lose momentum. I am a thinker and a planner – which is great—but thinking and planning will not build momentum. Momentum requires movement. Then you consistently build on that movement until it becomes a habit.
Visualizing how I want my life to look is a powerful motivator to get me there. It also requires action, or movement on my part. That’s where I’m at now…the action part. I feel myself gaining momentum and that is a feeling that I haven’t felt this strongly since I returned from Hawaii.
It feels good.

Lately, I've been inside my own head worrying about building my business and other stuff that I had to do something. So I did some research looking for local volunteer opportunities and I came across Hats for the Homeless.
I already knew how to crochet but I only ever made blankets and scarves. So after a few quick lessons I've been churning out these little beanies like nobody's business!
I get to help people in my community from the security of my own home, and I'm much more relaxed and not feeling as anxious as I once did.
It's a win-win.

Okay, it’s June and half of 2015 is gone. Now is the perfect opportunity to review the goals that you set in January and check your progress.
In December 2014, I completed an annual Review/Preview and posted it here .
Basically, it was a review of 2014 and preview of how I wanted my 2015 to look. It was a fantastic exercise and I encourage each of you to do your own review/preview for next year. As I go through my list, there are some things that I accomplished (turning Pro in Figure), some things I abandoned (teaching a class on Wholeness) and some things that I’m still working on (building my client roster).
So far, I believe it’s been a pretty successful six months but I know I have plenty of work to do.
Things that I’m looking forward to in the next six months are:
Conducting the Fab Fit & 50 Summer Boot Camp (June 13 – July 25)
Being a vendor at the Women in Business conference at the end of the month
Competing as a professional figure competitor in August
Taking my birthday trip (destination still unknown)
Spending the holidays with my family and not having to stress about an upcoming competition
How are you doing on your 2015 goals?
