4 Monumental Requirements for More Awesome Momentum

Ever notice how something that’s on a roll–a bike, a car, a ball, or whatever–starts out very slowly and, then, begins to pick up speed as it progresses, especially when going down a hill?

This phenomenon is what is called momentum. It is an irresistible force once it gets going. It is a key to maintaining forward movement.

If momentum begins to dwindle the bike, the car or the ball will come to a stop sooner or later.child-419440_1920

And, so it is in your pursuit of that illusive thing called success.  It’s easier to get there the more efficient and effective you are.

The fact is success is an irresistible force once it gets going. It’s the “getting going” that’s the hard part!

Too many of us never achieve all we can be, do or have because we don’t work hard enough or long enough at the “getting going.”

Too many of us just want success to happen to us. Success does not “happen to us.” It is something “we BRING to us” through efficient and effective effort that establishes momentum toward inevitable success.

Are you one of those people?  If so, here’s what to do about it.

Establishing more awesome momentum has four requirements.


Believe in yourself. If you don’t believe you deserve greater success in life, you don’t.  Your reality is you can’t be, do or have something you don’t think you deserve.

Your mindstate is defined as your mood and how that mood impacts your thinking and your actions.  Create a mood to achieve greater success.

Use this daily affirmation: I am therefore I can be.


You have to find the source of passion that fires up the boiler of your soul. That passion will provide you the “steam” known as your human will.

Whatever it is you wish to be, do or have, search your soul for the deep, emotional, passionate reason for achieving it.

Use this daily affirmation: It’s not my human won’t. It’s my human will. Understanding my why gives me my will.


Establishing momentum toward success requires knowledge. You will never achieve all you can be, do or have unless you realize that life is truly about constantly learning everything you possibly can.

Don’t believe me.  How about these thoughts from a few people much more wise than I am…

 “Intellectual growth should commence at birth and cease only at death.” ― Albert Einstein

“Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.”W.B. Yeats

“Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young.”Henry Ford

Use this daily affirmation: Know gives me “Go.”


Efficient and effective momentum towards success takes a plethora of skills. Skills are the “how” of “what” it takes to be successful.

Paramount among skills to driving success is your ability to communicate effectively with your fellow human beings. Do everything you can to learn effective skills for encouraging others to want to communicate with you and help you.

Dale Carnegie’s, How to Win Friends and Influence People, is still one of the most powerful sources of knowledge in this all important requirement to awesome success.

Use this daily affirmation: Skills help me up success’s hills.
