You have been conditioned to think that getting things done is all about motivation – unfortunately, this is a big lie! Momentum is the force that drives you, moving you forward on the course of your current trajectory at the speed of your past, present and future lives. Momentum is all about harnessing energy because energy is a habit and its power is remarkable!
Unfortunately, momentum keeps you moving in a singular direction that you may or may not want to be headed in. If you are headed in a downward spiral, momentum will keep you moving downward unless you act and overcome to reverse direction. This happens most often when you focus on your fears instead of your goals to motivate you and this is inherently quite counterproductive.
Enemies Of Momentum – COMPLACENCY is the number one enemy of momentum. Moving forward, making progress and achieving goals requires WORK. Identifying goals, setting goals, making detailed plans and taking action require effort on your part. Sometimes it’s just easier to “settle” and be comfortable.
CULTURE is number two. Your neighbours and co-workers may say that they want to see you succeed and achieve, but they may not mean it! If YOU work harder and build momentum and move forward, then THEY have to work harder to do the same. It is a harsh reality, but it is easier to hold you down than help you up – this is especially true in the workplace. Stop worrying about other people’s opinions, let them bask in their complacency and jealousy as you succeed!
How To Maintain Momentum – Momentum can be the difference between a fantastic life and a mediocre one, providing the jet fuel needed to reach your goals.
- Consistent Activity – The moment you finally push past an obstacle is the time you need to keep doing the activity. Too many people feel they finally arrived, but do not realize they still have a further to go to reach their full potential.
- Clarity – Focus and see clearly what we want to achieve. You know what your ideal lifestyle looks like. You have clear income goals. You know where You are going. You have clear places that you want to live, and that you want to visit.
- Avoid Negativity – Don’t let people steal your dreams. One little discouraging word from someone can stop your momentum. People will be judgmental and try to steal your dreams and your energy. Don’t let them.
- Put Out Good Energy – Live by example and put out good energy. People will see and know that your intentions are good and that you are doing the right thing. Believe in what you are doing. Put good energy out there and it will come back to you.
One simple way you can balance negativity and build good energy is through the use of essential oils. When inhaled or applied topically, essential oils can influence areas of your brain that control stress. Essential oils can shift you mood at the physiological level, leaving you feeling more focused, energised and prepared to take on the day and continue moving forward!
