A Little Lesson In Physics

I hope this has never happened to you, but I’ll bet it has: your car has stalled somewhere, and you have to push it out of the way.

Whether you did the shoving yourself or had to recruit friends, family, or passersby, you got a quick and crystal clear lesson on the principle of momentum.

It takes all kinds of grunting, straining, (and in my case a wide range of expletives) to get the wheels rolling, but once you’ve got some forward motion going it gets a lot easier.

As we all learned in school, a body in motion tends to stay in motion.

This physical principle is directly applicable to your business, too. It takes some muscle and sweat to get started, but once some forward motion happens, momentum has a chance to build.

Just like the wheels of a car, that momentum will start slowly, but if you keep your back bent to the task at hand you’ll pick up speed— and you’ll find it gets easier the faster you go.

Of course, that doesn’t mean you get to stop pushing! To keep those wheels rolling you’ve got to provide some ongoing effort, no doubt about it. But the point is, the hardest effort has to come at the beginning…

The beginning of your business, the beginning of the year, the beginning of a new marketing method… you get the idea.

So, I ask you: is your business just sitting in one spot right now? Well, that’s the other part of the principle of momentum: a body at rest tends to stay at rest. And that’s no way to earn money!

So spit on your palms, brace your feet, and start pushing! Your business isn’t much different from your body…you must keep up momentum if you plan to get anywhere.

Stop the forward momentum; stop *pushing* even a little bit and your business could suffer greatly.
Over to You

I’ve never written too much in the motivational/Inspirational arenas, but I found this one and always thought it to be truth. I hope it helps.

Do you need help pushing forward?
