What if you could run through walls? I don’t mean like kitty pride up there, finessing your way through them. I’m talking about the Juggernaut, blasting his way through with reckless abandon, not having to worry about what’s in front him because he KNOW’S he’s unstoppable. Through the sheer force of his momentum, he’s able to overcome any obstacle. What if you could treat obstacles to your goals like the Juggernaut? What if you too could harness the power of momentum?
If we want to get scientific, Momentum = Mass * Velocity. This means that in order to have high momentum, you need a large object going at high speed in a singular direction. But how do you apply this to personal development, how do you apply the concept to your goals?
-Large Object = Large Amounts of Passion
-High Speed = High Amounts of Persistence
-Singular Direction = Focused Purpose
Passion can be defined as how much you want something. It's measurement is simple..measure the amount of emotion a goal arouses in you. With low passion, one large obstacle can be enough to stop you. With high passion, even the large obstacles seem small in comparison to how much you want it.
Persistence can be defined as how committed you are to something. To measure it, ask yourself "When am I going to acheive my goal?", the more specific and more sure of your answer you are, the more persistent you are. With low persistence, you'll give up after only a few setbacks. With high persistence, it doesn't matter how many setbacks you get, you're deterimined to keep going.
Purpose can be defined as understanding why you want something. To measure how focused your purpose is, ask yourself "What do I want this week?" Then ask yourself "What do I want 10 years from now?". The more specific and connected your answers are, the more focused your purpose is. A low focus of purpose means you'll be distracted from your goal by the very next thing that comes along. A high focus of purpose means that somebody could offer you a million dollars to stop what you're doing, and it wouldn't deter you.
Over the next few weeks, I'll be posting a series of articles on how to use momentum, as defined above. I'll cover patterns that maximize momentum, give you common pitfalls to avoid, and tell how you to sustain it. Together, we can run through walls.
