The Big Mo! You gotta have it.
Momentum is an incredibly powerful thing. The word momentum means, “On the move.”. Whether it’s a team on the move, a church on the move, a business on the move, or a family on the move, becoming unstoppable requires momentum.
In sports, a team that has momentum is on the move, and will take some effort to stop. A team with momentum plays “over their head”. That is, they play better than they really are!
Momentum allows you to do greater things than you ever thought possible, and successful people now how to string together wins that create momentum which makes the next battle easier to win.
Make 2016 the year you want it to be by building momentum.
What are the areas in your life where you struggle to get wins? Is it in your diet? Exercising? Budgeting your finances? Being more disciplined with your time? Whatever it is, YOU CAN achieve great success this year by using the Big MO to your advantage.
Momentum starts with one small victory.
Your job this week is to get just one small win. Don’t go for the grandiose all at once. Don’t expect to lose 25 pounds in one week. You’re not going to immediately eat healthy all the time when you’ve had months and years of unhealthy eating habits.
You have to start small!
You have to get just one win. When you get it, celebrate it. And then tell yourself, “just one more win, and the momentum will start to build.” One small win will lead to another, and then another. The only way to really become unstoppable in achieving your goals is to build momentum.
Building momentum builds confidence and confidence breeds more confidence. When the Golden State Warriors started the 2015-2016 season, they set a record for the most wins in a row at the start of a season. Each game they won gave them more confidence for the next one. But their momentum during this stretch was because of the momentum they had when they won the 2015 NBA championship. More than any other team in history, they used that momentum to begin the new season with 24 straight wins!
There are championships you want to win in your life. It may not be an NBA championship, but for you it’s just as big. The way you win the big goals you have set, is to first get one small win, and then another, and another, then ride that wave of momentum as far as you can!
Don’t be like so many people out there.
They get a little momentum and then something happens and they experience a setback.
This is so common for people who are trying to lose weight, for example. They do great for a while, and then they blow it! They eat that doughnut at the office….or they miss a work out. Instead of forgetting it, and moving on and getting back on track, they say to themselves, “I’ve already blown it! And they let one defeat lead to another and then another.”
They let negative momentum overtake them and defeat them. Don’t let this happen to you! You can stop the negative momentum with one decision.
I am often telling my team, “There are three things you should do with a mistake:
1. Admit it
2. Learn from it
3. Forget it
When you fall of the wagon, you get back up!
Don’t let one failure completely defeat you. Get back on your feet, and get that one win; and THIS TIME your goal is to get more wins than you got the last time. Stop the negative momentum train before it has a chance to really get going.
Once you learn to get positive momentum, you will live differently. You will make decisions not based on what you want at the moment, but on what your goals are for the future. You will build the Big Mo one day at a time, one moment at a time, one decision at a time, one win at a time.
You know what you are capable of. You know you are capable of so much more. Just get that one win today….that’s where it all starts!
Become unstoppable with the Big Mo!
Make your decisions based not on what you want at the moment, but on what you really want the most.
to get started to be great.”
-Les Brown***”To get momentum, you must first focus on a s
pecific goal with passion and intensity.”
“The Law of Momentum says, ‘An object in motion will stay in motion
until it meets a resisting force.’ Push through and be stronger than any resisting force.”
“One way to keep momentum going is to have constantly greater goals.”
“As soon as you set your goals, immediately begin to create momentum.”
