Sustaining Momentum

One of the greatest barriers to lasting success is the inability to repeat your initial success.

Momentum is often described as the tendency to repeat recent success.

Momentum is the constant repeating of small steps that build a force of movement. Success begins to happen over and over again. That movement increases in speed. Its quantity of motion in so many small areas of life begin to generate its own power. The created strength becomes an impetus to change the course of events.

How do you sustain such successes in life?

By sustaining momentum.

And how do you sustain such a moving power?

The answer is contained in one word: affirmations.

Practical Exercise:

  1. Identify your goal;
  2. Recognize each step required to reach that goal;
  3. Craft an affirmation related to each step of your goal;
  4. State each affirmation daily without doubt, believing its statement of future position is presently fulfilled.

Every affirmation is like a screw you drive down into your success boardwalk. Have faith in your ability to reach success. You will have whatever you say.

Daily affirmations are key to sustaining momentum. Every day, audibly affirm something positive about yourself, your intent, and your belief.

Affirmations are key to sustaining momentum.

Resolutions Work Better with Affirmations

The first step in fulfilling your New Year Resolution is to create an accompanying affirmation.

This is the time when resolutions are made for the New Year. A resolution is a statement articulating an inner determination. To “resolve” to carry out something is directly connected to your will.

The reason most people do not keep their New Year resolutions is because they expressed them from their mind and not their will.

To know what to do is not the same as determining to do what you know.

Such determination comes from the heart.

In the Barriers to Success workshop, we emphasize creating personal affirmations. We have successfully coached many in this technique. It works because it shifts your mind to align with your heart.

To fulfill your New Year’s resolution, create affirmations that describe feelings of successfully fulfilling that resolution. For instance many resolve to loss weight such as, “I am going to lose 25 pounds this year.” Examples of affirmations to help this goal:

  • I am abundant with good health.
  • I love how I feel about who I am.
  • I look good in my clothes.

This thinking aligns our actions to meet the goal. You begin making healthy choices to eat because you daily remind yourself you are abundant in good health. You choose clothes you look good in now and you feel good about who are in the moment.

This transformation is both immediate and long-term. It may take time to actually lose that weight, but you immediately begin to fulfill your Resolution.

May you be blessed with prosperity and abundance in 2017.
