Momentum is the force that something has when it is moving. It’s the strength that allows you to keep going — it grows stronger and faster with time.
Momentum is when your preparation starts to make sense — your effort becomes visible in the form of achievements. Momentum is a rewarding and joyful feeling.
If you aim for small gains, you won’t exhaust yourself. Making continuous progress will generate momentum; thus, building confidence and helping you focus on the ongoing success rather than on the ‘change gap.’
It is the tension between the ‘current state’ and ‘desired state’ that creates anxiety and fear.
Most people feel paralyzed — they focus on ‘the gap’ (how much they need to accomplish) versus on moving forward.
Most people want to change themselves completely. The problem is wanting to do everything at once.
Because this intense motivational boost can backfire — you shift from over-enthusiasm to total frustration. Achieving your goals requires building momentum, to progressively develop your capacity and strength.
But by pushing ourselves too hard, we exhaust the mental muscles needed to stay focused, to avoid temptations, and to persist in the face of frustration or failure.
It is a byproduct of self-discipline — it requires a method, not just a positive attitude.
Rather than worrying about the end result, focus on how to make daily progress.
... is that they can be intimidating. They can paralyze you into inaction.
The big picture can be overwhelming, but in little parts, it seems achievable. Every step forward brings you closer to a goal. Consistent action coupled with time guarantees lasting progress.
Think if you are willing to sacrifice your free time to struggle to establish a side hustle and if you can handle the consequences of it.
If you are willing, develop a system of positive triggers and routines to help support your self-discipline and exert all your extra effort to grow your side hustle, then you have the psychological foundation to build a successful business.
