Pardon the interruption…

2

If you are anything like me…

I really thrive in a period of momentum.

To elaborate, when I am in a routine of executing my key vital behaviors like reading, fitness, writing, meditating…

And executing those behaviors daily over a long period of time…

I see progress in their respective performances. AND I feel great.

However, if you are like me…

There is always an interruption or road block.

I get sick…

The kids aren’t napping…

I am injured…

Or even, I just get off track by way of laziness or poor use of my time for a few days.

And the momentum is over…

I don’t want to get back in the gym.

Why was I even meditating anyway?

No one reads the blog, I don’t need to write…

These are the internal dialogues that occur in my head when I have lost momentum.

But I have learned a valuable lesson over the last few years in trying to get better at anything or in trying to learn something new…

And that is to remember how you felt when you did those behaviors, channel that positive feeling and do exactly what you had to do when you started their respective journey…

Just start. Create action.

It doesn’t matter if restarting momentum is not at the same level you left off or executed with as much “excellence”…

Just move past the interruption and do something that gets you back on the road again so you can experience those positive feelings the behavior provides to you.

Once you realize that these roadblocks are going to be more consistent than your consistency…

And you can anticipate them and prepare mentally for their arrival…

You know how to get around them and they don’t seem as formidable.

What have you been putting off getting back into because you are frustrated you got off track?

I challenge you today to just do one small action to get that positive ball rolling again.

Momentum is a fun ride…

But learning how to build it is even cooler.
