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.
