Pick up again where you left off
Having experienced Momentum, it seemed to make sense to continue using this vibe. It would have had to wait though till I’d had the chance of taking a shower, going some place else then where I’d been working on my blogs and videos, and had returned.
This exactly shows the challenge at hand. How do you get back into that vibe, once you’re completely detached from what it is you were working on?
In my case I’d decided to publish my blogposts, referring to a link, which up till this moment is non-existent. I know how to create it now, since I got to figure it out not too long ago for another training. I won’t say it’s not a lot of work. I will say that the more I’ll be doing it, the easier it will become. By now I know that it isn’t something that’s impossible, it will not even take me days, more like two hours max, if I’m lucky close to 30 minutes, but I do need to get into the vibe of feeling that flow.
By leaving out a crucial part, the one that’s one the complicated things to create, but having it out there for the public eye to see, I need to put a rush on it. It’s a trail with a deadline. All my work will have been useless if there’s no follow-up for people to go to, for those who want to know more about, in this case, Momentum.
One of the rules of teaching personal development (even when used for business purposes) is “practice what you preach”. So not only is there a deadline to create a follow up button with link and more forms, which will otherwise have me lose future clients, this is also about being trustworthy. If I am negligent, how can I teach about following up on a trail and doing what’s necessary to get back into that feeling of Momentum?
There is a third thing though, which is just as important. I know that once I get to do it again, I will get into that flow, find my Momentum and afterwards I will be more proud of myself than before facing this challenge. Because I know that with intent (the will to do it) and courage (to actually go figure it out and get it over and done with), confidence will come (because repetition makes “perfect”. The more I do it, the easier it gets and the more likely it will be I’ll pick up on the flow immediately and just enjoy what I’m doing.
Having said so, I will recap here the things which will basically help me to do those things needed for my follow up and helping me eliminate those roadblocks which are standing between me and creating much more more future Momentum:
- Make that action, what you need to do as quickly as possible, “public”:
- People will see it and will react if they cannot take the follow-up action asked from them;
- You will look unreliable in your field of expertise of you cannot do what you say you’re all about (in my case creating Momentum, by not postponing actions and turning “fears” into challenges).
- Face your fears and realize the impact this will have for your confidence level and hence creating Momentum.
Once you face your challenge and you get to master it, you will have the skills to do it quicker the next time, until eventually it will be as easy as reciting the alphabet to you (assuming this is something you can do with your eyes closed).
Below you can find the result of this blogpost and hence my action. This time when I will publish it, there will be a button for a follow up, which is linked to a series of forms and emails. There are more follow-ups to create after this one. Having faced the first hurdle and mastered it, the next hurdle will just be one more challenge, which I know I can overcome and will lead to both pride (I did it!) and confidence. I know that if I put my mind to it, I can do it. And that by itself is reason enough to celebrate and put me straight away in that Momentum I need, to get things done.
