Being in rut is an awful feeling. Going after things and never seeing an end to it is frustrating to no end. When this happens we spend our time trying to make one thing work when it seems everything in life is working against making it happen. This squanders momentum. We need building blocks, not road blocks to make momentum work. We all need momentum in our lives, because it gives us more confidence.
Here are 3 ways to create more momentum in your life right now:
1. Create more “Wins”.
These will act as building blocks that will stack on top of each other. When life brings you more progress, it is easier to reach out and try new things. When you have a lot of losses, timidity ensues and trying new things looks daunting. Nothing will deflate confidence like a consistent stream of losses in a row. Stepping out isn’t easy when you don’t have momentum. It starts mentally. Do more that brings momentum into your life.
2. Create realistic deadlines and goals for yourself.
To get things done, set deadlines for yourself to help you finish. But, one of the most important aspects here is to first set realistic expectations for yourself to not find yourself defeated before you even begin. Once you do this, the most important thing to do is to stick to your plan. So often, these big, lofty dreams intimidate us and we find ourselves hiding from them. Don’t let this happen. Bite your goals off into daily chunks that will help you not only create more wins, but will it decrease stress and will create momentum.
3. Create a team.
Like-minded individuals form cohesiveness and pushes ahead to achieve more. Whether this means hiring virtual assistants, forming a better team at work that helps each other accomplish more, or getting your family more on board to support you emotionally and with your goals physically, getting others on board helps with achieving more. The support alone moves you to do more well. Create a team to help with moving you forward.
In other words, confidence and creation shapes momentum. The more you can do well, the better your outcomes will be. Confidence and momentum work well together because you will eventually venture out to try new things and succeed at them.
