Don’t Be Scared of Momentum

“Success comes from taking the initiative and following up…persisting…eloquently expressing the depth of your love. What simple action could you take today to produce a new momentum toward success in your life?” - Tony Robbins

Sometimes it can get a bit shaky, and the vision can get a little blurred. Much like any sport where you begin to pick up speed, it can be a bit scary. When we set personal goals, and go after what we want, why is that we aren’t always able to follow through? Although we may want to reach these potentials, instead of using the momentum to propel us further, we hit the brakes.

It turns out that success can be frightening. Actually attaining our goals or getting close to them means that we are entering into new territories, new frontiers. It always takes a while to get used to change. Change can certainly bring up anxieties and insecurities because we are not used to these sensations. In many ways, we don’t want change because we are not totally dissatisfied with everything. Perhaps the fear of loosing what is good is justified, but growth doesn’t necessarily equal elimination.

How is it that the top performers of the world are able to break through to the next level? The Lifestyle Project has found a common thread through our research. Small daily affirmations of our goals allow us to build and maintain momentum. Change doesn’t have to be so colossal. By implementing simple strategies to get the little victories, we are able to enter into new territories with ease. The shock doesn’t come all at once, but gradually, much like our height changes in our early years. By tackling our big goals with small steps, we gain momentum, acquire new habits and retain a comfortable level of control.

Like everything that is worthwhile, patience can be one of our biggest alliances. Things don’t happen over night and remember, the sand on the shore took millions of year to be so fine.

We think that most people are interested in positive change, or at least maintaining our positive current status. On our trips, we want people to keep up with the positive momentum that they already have. Likewise, we also want you to return home and keep excelling with your newly acquired skills. Our attention to your personal interests allows us to set up the strategies to continue on with your development.

We want to see the world so that we can learn from other perspectives on life. We want to expand our ideas so that we can enjoy our days with more meaning. Change comes in many forms and many speeds. It isn’t always easy to stick with our goals, but it may be easier to create a bit of traction. Today is the best day for that.

Let’s create some momentum with our aspirations by practicing daily what we wish to alter. Once you get rolling, trust in your abilities, and have confidence in yourselves because no matter how different you may become, it will always still be you.

Let’s change the way we travel, together.
