Momentum should never be underestimated. When you can find ways to build momentum in a positive way, there is a feeling of empowerment that is so real you can touch it. You have the ability to make the intangible, tangible simply by generating positive momentum. This can happen in any aspect of your life, work, school, church, family, etc.
There are 3 key questions that I feel can help to build momentum:
1. Do you care?
- About yourself
- About your goals
- About your future
- About what your legacy will be
- About how you treat others
- About how others treat you
- About what makes you happy
2. Why do you care?
- You have goals you want to achieve
- Others are looking to you as an example
- You want to reach your full potential
- You are following others who have set a good example
- You can develop your strengths
- You will establish better relationships
- You will be respected
- You will add value to your school, company, community, society
3. How can you do more?
- Take the lead more often
- Become more humble to learn from others
- Work harder in helping others reach their goals
- Turn negative situations into positive learning opportunities
- Be sure people know who you are
- Find ways to serve others
- Show love to those who love you
So what do those questions have to do with building momentum?
Momentum is not something that just happens. We must always be asking questions that will allow us to take action. It is only when we take action that momentum can start. When you truly care and know why you care you then almost instinctively want to do more. Doing is an action and to only way to build momentum is through our actions. There is a sense of pride that comes when you generate momentum that not only impacts you but others in a positive way. We cannot sit back and allow the world to dedicate when or where or how momentum will impact ourlives, if we do, we will be very unsatisfied. When we are unsatisfied, we lose our energy and momentum and things can go negative quickly.
Building momentum is something that heroes do. The majority of the time it is a result of their actions that creates the true momentum. When we get the chills or that warm feeling in our heart when we see someone doing something great, it causes us to want to take action. That is momemtum. Can you imagine what this world would be like if we worked in harmony to build the type of momentum where every person felt they could succeed, guess what, we can. It starts with you and it starts with me. So together let’s start building momentum towards a brighter tomorrow. I can promise you that the youth of today are praying for our success, they want a better tomorrow.
Go out and be a hero!
