Momentum: The Importance of Consistently Making Progress

As I write to you, I am coming off of an incredible month of momentum and progress as I execute my goals and manifest my vision for 2022 and beyond. I hope that the second quarter has started out on a positive note for you and that you are making progress. Can you believe we are entering the fifth month of 2022? As I told you at the start of this year, the time will move very fast and you must make the moments count. Success is never accidental. Success is always intentional and requires strategic action. I want to share some insights with you about the power of momentum in realizing your dreams.

  1. You must live your life with intention. If you have followed my work for any length of time, then you know I have expounded on intention so many times. However, it does not matter how much I talk about intention, it seems that it never seems to connect with everyone. While many laws and principles have contributed to my success, one of the most powerful laws that I ever put into practice was the law of intention. This law is powerful because everything in this universe operates on the law of intention. Unfortunately, many people have adopted hope as their life strategy. I believe in hope but it is not a sufficient strategy to build your life on. Instead, I want to challenge you to build your life on intention. Making intention a life strategy is a winning combination for success. You do not get what you hope for or even what you desire. Your life will be an inevitable reflection of your intentions. When you set clear intentions, operate with clarity, and take consistent action, you will be amazed at what you accomplish. Intention is a powerful prophetic magnet that literally attracts into your life your greatest desires and dreams. Intention provides focus to our moments, meaning to our days, and purpose to our lives. Intention empowers us to set priorities and shape our prophetic destinies.
  2. The intention must always be accompanied by impetus. While I just spent a great deal of time talking about the law of intention, I want to also add a caveat that intention must be followed by impetus. In other words, it is not enough to have a strong desire or passion for a particular vision, dream, or goal. If you want to be successful you must take it a step further and put impetus behind your intention. In other words, the impetus is what gives your intention traction. I want you to take a moment and find your goals for 2022. I want you to consider how intentional you have been about their accomplishment thus far. Also, I want you to take a moment and write down how you can use impetus to move your intentions forward. This means that you are going to have to take action in the direction of your desired outcome. You cannot hope that it will manifest. Nor can you simply release positive affirmations and expect your dreams to manifest. No, you must take the action if you want to attract success and prosperity into your world. You will never propel into your life what you are unwilling to pursue.
  3. You must understand the importance of consistency. So many people come to me looking for hacks for success and prosperity in life. When I tell them what has worked for me, I can often see the disgust and disappointment on their faces. In reality, most people think that success is some magic formula. Often times success is simply the product of learning to be consistent. Inconsistency is a dream killer and a destiny aborter. Why do I say that? Inconsistency is the antithesis of an intentional life. Inconsistency causes you to live impulsively, irrationally, and ineffectively. Moreover, when you are inconsistent it creates a paradigm that is counterproductive to your success and prosperity. Inconsistency does not challenge self-limiting beliefs or perceptions. Furthermore, inconsistency never facilitates your growth and development. As a result, you persist in bad habits and perpetuate toxic cycles. Consistency is the secret of champions. Consistency produces power, adjusts your paradigm, and ameliorates your productivity. Consistency empowers you with the resolve to produce results and ultimately realize your dreams.
  4. Use momentum to produce consistent wins. Momentum is a force that will empower you to produce consistent results and consistent wins in your life. In other words, momentum will begin to propel dream realization and goal manifestation in your life. Consistency produces a snowball effect. In other words, it develops the consistency, discipline, and resolve in you to not just produce wins but to engineer consistent victories. Are you ready to make 2022 the greatest year of your life? Then you need to learn how to use momentum to your advantage. The reason I have been able to produce consistent results and sustainable success is that I know how to use momentum. I do not simply stop because I get a win or I achieve a goal. No, I use the momentum of that win to empower me to accomplish even bigger goals and pursue even grander dreams. Why is that? Momentum is a prophetic force empowering you to multiply your efforts and multiply your effectiveness. Momentum is lost when we do not build on our wins creating a collision with the next victory in our lives. When you build on your wins and use them to create your next victory, the result is momentum because you have mastered conserving energy without a cost to your effectiveness. This year use momentum as a snowball in your life to produce sustainable breakthroughs in every area of your life.
