How to Build Momentum in Your Business – What is Momentum?
(Momentum equals Mass times velocity)
Okay. That’s cool, but do you really know what momentum means for your business or how to build momentum in your business?
Let’s discuss that right now..
But before we do that, let’s define momentum.
Merriam-Websters defines momentum as:
1. momentum – a property of a moving body that the body has by virtue of its mass and motion and that is equal to the product of the body’s mass and velocity; broadly: a property of a moving body that determines the length of time required to bring it to rest when under the action of a constant force or moment
2. momentum – strength or force gained by motion or by a series of events
In simple terms, momentum is the result you get from applying consistent effort for a specific amount of time.
Momentum is really important in your business because it is what drives you to reaching your goals.
How to Build Momentum in Your Business.. working towards that momentum stage?
Quick illustration that you may have experienced in your own business..
When you started out in Internet marketing your up-line leaders probably told you go out and market your business by any means necessary (video marketing, article marketing, cold calling strangers, hotel meetings, contacting friends and family, etc., etc.).
You, being so eager to get started, did just that. You talked to any and every person who would listen to you.
You camped out at Walmart (I once did), hung out at the malls (did this too), and spammed all your friends (I’m guilty).
You were hungry for those first few weeks of becoming the owner of your own company.
You made more phone calls and you posted more ads on Facebook, Twitter, and other social media sites.
After applying these tactics, you then sat back and waited for all that money to come rolling in.. Right?
But what happened?
Did your efforts create the desired results?
Did you become an instant millionaire like they told you?
In fact, you were probably just the opposite – broke and disgusted.
How to Build Momentum in Your Business.. let’s revisit the Momentum Formula
But lets examine why you didn’t make all that money your upline promised you.
Why didn’t you get the immediate results?
It’s because you did not quite build up the momentum necessary to succeed.
Yes, you put forth a lot of effort; however, a lot of effort over a short period of time is not momentum.
Quickly, let’s revisit the definition of momentum: a property of a moving body that determines the length of time required to bring it to rest when under the action of a constant force.
I want you to focus on a couple of keywords in this definition: “length of time” and “constant force”
It takes time and consistent effort in order to build momentum. You can’t have one without the other.
What’s sad is that most people quit just before reaching that momentum stage (or Three Feet from Gold).
And guess what happens to all of their leads (and the money tied to those leads)?
They default to their previous upline.
I know this because I have been on both sides of this momentum equation.
So, you have to keep your pedal to the metal until you reach your desired result.
Do not stop until you reach momentum. Because when you get there, no one will be able to bring you back down.
P.S. You want to catch a business before it hits its momentum stage.. Here’s one that is about to build momentum.
