Do You Want To Fly? You Have to Run!
"Momentum," she repeats. "You can't just stand there if you want something to fly. You have to run.” ― Lauren DeStefano
Look how big an airplane is, yet an airplane chock is casually tossed in front of the airliners wheels and this alone is enough to prevent the plane from moving! However, when the airplane is moving that chock would be no match for the huge plane.
What is the difference?
Momentum. It is the ONLY way a plane gets off the ground and the only way it stays in the air. When the plane is moving, that momentum combined with the size of the jet make it an unstoppable force.
Momentum is the only thing that is holding you back from really enjoying success and happiness in your life. Do you let the little chocks of life hold you back? A little speed bump slows you down? Most likely it isn't the obstacle that is holding you back but it is probably your weak momentum that enables ANY small setback to bring you to a complete stop.
Don't let these distractions (be it people or events) hold you back. Make a list of your goals, see what tools and skills you need to reach them and then go full steam ahead! When you are determined to let nothing stop you from reaching your goals you will then understand how important momentum is.
Now Go Do!
