Hope you are getting something from these posts. Gaining momentum is a tough challenge. Here are my final thoughts which could help…
4. Stick to it.
Sticking at something is not easy. It is however the difference maker. They say that doing one thing for 21 days makes it a habit. I don’t know how true that is but if you want it become a part of your lifestyle you must stick to it. Don’t let it drift. Don’t let the time get stolen by other stuff. For it to move from being a good intention to a value it must stick.
It means not letting failing now and then stop you.
It means not allowing other more trivial things deflect you from the path you wish to travel.
It means making adjustments along the way, not waiting until its too late.
5. Become accountable to someone.
To gain momentum having someone to whom you are accountable is extremely important. Most people do not make it on their. John Maxwell says that one is too smaller a number to achieve greatness.
Behind every ‘overnight’ success is a team of people keeping them on track.
You need someone in you world who can ask more than ‘how’s it going?’ They need to be able to tell when you are wrong, challenge your actions, as well as help you when you are struggling, pick you up when you fall.
Even Solomon understand that 2 are better than 1. “Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work: If one falls down, his friend can help him up. But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up! Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm. But how can one keep warm alone? Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves”. [Eccl 4:9-12]
To gain momentum: get an accountability point in your world.
