What you do and what happens to you creates and reinforces the beliefs you use to experience, measure, and engage the rest of your life.
Your belief is strengthened by how badly things go wrong while you still have a vision for what could be better.
What you believe doesn’t feel awkward to you or wrong. It’s what you believe.
At a very basic level, if you don’t believe something is possible you won’t even try. Your beliefs shape your perspectives and your behavior.
I get asked the same question in almost every interview. Whether it’s a business show on TV or radio or podcast interview talking about high performance or breakthrough strategy.
Whether it’s true or not means very little. Your beliefs aren’t logical.
You’ve heard it said before that what you believe you become.
Momentum is a choice. You staying headed in the direction where you want to go isn’t a matter of chance or good timing.
Your effort isn’t proportional or dependent on your current situation.
You can’t pretend like you know it all and make massive amounts of progress in your life. The truth is that each one of us has weaknesses.
The quality of your momentum is directly tied to the quality of your daily habits. Improve one and you will improve the other.
When you think about momentum you probably immediately think about what you should be doing.
Great business plans get destroyed by bad personal behaviors.
Momentum beats talent. Every time. Great momentum beats great talent. Every time.
Momentum is the single greatest superpower that you can develop. Building it. Maintaining it. Safeguarding it.
It’s easy to be philosophical about having a mission statement or purpose.
What you value impacts how valuable you become. What you consider to be a talent or skill or something worth note of your time and attention impacts how you behave. How you treat others. What you do and where you go.
What is that one thing you could do today that would make the day awesome?
It’s not always easy figuring out how and where you can add value when it comes to business. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t always be trying to figure it out how to make something better and newer.
You can’t be valuable to others if you don’t have value to offer. Think about that for a minute.
