How to keep your momentum going
“One way to keep momentum going is to have constantly greater goals.”- Michael Korda
Life is game. According to Claude M. Bristol, “To win you’ve got to stay in the game.” If you want to change things in your life, you must stay in the game. You must develop the attitude of achievement. It is important. Because if you don’t have a positive attitude, if you don’t believe you can win, you will quit the game.
You can do anything you want to do. But it is not going to come to you without a fight. If you want to succeed, you must fight for it. You must do what you haven’t done before. You can’t get a different result if you keep doing the same thing. Don’t let fear stop you from doing something new. Don’t let mistakes stop you from doing something new. In the words of Sophia Loren, “mistakes are part of the dues one pays for a full life.” Face your mistakes. If you pay attention to them, you will learn from them.
When it comes to your life, don’t let anything stop you from staying in the game. Remember, you can win if you just do a little more than what you have been doing before. You have the power to keep going. You have the power to keep doing more. All you need to do is to believe in yourself.
It doesn’t matter how many times you have messed things up. Don’t focus on your past mistakes. Focus on where you are right now. You can’t change your past mistakes. But you can change where you are right now. To do that, you must do things differently. You must think differently. You must act differently. You must hang out with different people. You don’t need everybody. You need somebody.
Unless you try something new, unless you check what you do every day, unless you commit yourself to changing your life, you will never grow. Mike Murdock said, “The secret of your future is hidden in your daily routine.” If what you are doing right now is not getting you closer to your dream, change it. If you can’t change it, try to embrace it.
You can stay in the game if you work really hard to make your dream happen. Nothing happens without hard work. Nothing happens without commitment. You can make things happen. Don’t wait for things to happen to you. If you want to succeed, you must make things happen for you. Don’t wait for people to help you. It is your responsibility to create the life you want for yourself. But you can’t do that without hard work. Gordon B. Hinckley said, “Without hard work, nothing grows but weeds.” Without hard work, you will never succeed. If you want to succeed in your life, you must work really hard to make your dreams come true. You can win! You can do it!
