This is something we shared with our son's school. It is the importance of maintaining and creating momentum in life to achieve success.
It's a huge word; MOMENTUM.

Anyways, back to my sharing for today. MOMENTUM.
Today we want to share with you a great word; MOMENTUM!
We do remember a law in physics defines momentum as; objects at rest tend to stay at rest. Objects in motion tend to stay in motion, unless acted upon by an outside force.
This statement holds true for everything we do in life especially in working towards becoming successful. You need to create momentum in what you are doing. Be it in your studies, your work, your health, your religion, in short everything you do needs to be built towards having momentum.
Why is momentum important?
When looking at our problems it can seem quite impossible to even budge them, much less make a significant impact. Often momentum matters more than strength, and persistence more than initial impact.
We came across this amazing experiment that was conducted to illustrate the power of momentum!
A teacher hung a bowling ball from the ceiling and told disbelieving students that he'd be able to make the ball swing with a ping pong ball. The bowling ball weighs 8 pounds, the ping pong ball roughly 0.006 pounds - a weight difference of over 1,333 times. Just as the laws of physics dictate that everything has momentum, everything that we do builds momentum. The question is whether or not the decisions that we make build momentum in the directions that we wish to go.
So a couch potato stays a couch potato. While others go out, take action every day and will achieve more. This makes sense. What separates the achievers from the couch potato? MOMENTUM.
It’s something every successful person or business possesses. Momentum is a powerful force that can lead you to all your goals.
The truth is, it’s going to take some time. No matter what you do, you will need time to build momentum. Here are 3 tips on how you can create momentum in what you do.
1. Thinking consistency. Slow and steady wins the race. The turtle always beats the hare. Think about anything you’ve had success with. We can guarantee that you did it consistently over a period of time. A little every day instead of trying to do too much too soon.
2. Develop a routine for daily habits. Decide what new habits or behaviours correlate with whatever you want to have success in.
For example you want to become healthier. You start by changing your meals. Start by taking healthy breakfast. It’s not going too easy at first but once you start and you make it a routine, it will become a habit for you. Your mind, than your body will adjust and you will eventually create momentum. Soon it will be a part of you and you will be amazed how easy it is for you. It will all seem amazing and magical to you later on. That’s what momentum can do for your life!
The same can also be said about other things which are as simple as waking up early in the morning to perform our Subuh prayers. At first it’s going to be a challenge as you will need to fight with yourself to conquer the urge to go back to sleep. But as you build on the momentum it becomes easier with each new day. This can be seen from Ramadan. The first few days might be challenging but as we move towards the end of Ramadan, you will develop a momentum for fasting and you will be able to increase your prayers. That’s why it is so important to carry the momentum from Ramadan into the month of Syawal. But here in Malaysia we tend to celebrate Syawal for one whole month and thus we lose our momentum!
3. Know why you’re doing it. Having superficial reasons will derail you so fast. That’s why New Year’s resolutions do not last! Think back to all the New Year resolution that you had, how many of them are still on your list? You fail more often than not. The reason being is that you do not have enough why behind those goals. It’s more of a feel good goal but not something that evokes your passion and commitment. It’s more of, if you get it, it’s great if not, you’re ok kind of goal.
If you have a deeper reason, you’ll keep going no matter what obstacles you face. You need to find your why for every goal that you have so that you can create momentum to achieve it.
Find what area in your life you want to have profound success. Use the tips above and find what behaviours in your life you have to change. Get momentum on your side and your life won’t be the same. We can guarantee it!!!
You do it for 30 days; YOU will see the difference.
You do it for 60 days; PEOPLE around you will see the difference.
You do it for 90 days; THE WORLD will see the difference!!!
So, come on! Let’s go and create some momentum!!!
