What is Momentum and why is it Important?

In life we can get into flow and gather momentum much like a rock rolling downhill rolls faster and faster. It is much harder to get things moving in a good direction in our life when we begin from a standstill, yet when we get overwhelmed or too stressed, depressed, anxious or tired out, that is exactly what happens, we stop deciding, stop making progress and lose our forward momentum. We think too much, worry too much and fear begins to have power over our decision making and we refuse to act, even when taking action would be most helpful to act.

Uncovering Your Daily Habits and How They Effect or Hinder Your Success

Our daily habits make up the majority of the success we experience in life. People always imagine it is the race chances, the random times of opportunity that create our success in life (or if we miss these times for one reason or another, the failures.) Instead, the reality is that it is the little things that you do over and over and over – DAILY actions – that actually make up the bulk of eventual success.

Take a few minutes to think about what things you do in your life most days of the week. Do you work? Clean? Exercise? Watch TV? Laugh? Scream? Eat healthy? Eat junk?

Make a list.

Figure out how many hours you do this action per day. It doesn’t have to be exact. Now, multiply that by 5. So, if on average you do that action 5 days a week, this is how many hours a week you spend doing that. Take this new weekly number and multiply by 52. That’s how many hours a YEAR you spend.

If you actually slept 8 hours a night, there are just over 100 hours a week or 5200 hours a year available to all of us. How do you use yours?

Will those hours spend create anything? Will they help you live the life of your dreams? Are they healthy or are they being wasted?

Building Momentum

Once you can see your habits and better imagine their long term good or bad effects it becomes easier to figure out how to begin building momentum in the direction you want to go in your life. You do this by looking at how you actually spend your time and then deciding if there are new habits that you’d like to add in order to begin taking steps toward your dreams. Next, you can decrease the time you spend doing something you see might eventually become unhealthy, or now see is really wasting the time you might have available to spend learning something that could help you achieve your dreams.

Chaining Habits

Chaining Habits is a technique where you create a set of actions that you do each day, in order. You pick things that will help you move toward your own personal goals and you chain them together so the action becomes part of your automatic routine.

For example, maybe you want to make a healthy breakfast, then take a walk with the dog, then take your shower and get ready for the day, then read for 30 minutes, then take 1 action each morning toward your dream…all before actually going to work each day. Once you get used to the pattern it almost becomes automatic.
