Don’t lose momentum…Keep moving forwards!

Listen here

We often hear phrases of teams with unstoppable momentum…building success that just accelerates and keeps building. The term is often used in sport, “winning momentum”. Success becomes habit forming and confidence continues to build.

We hear of retail outfits that slowly build a brand and open more stores and then momentum takes over. There is an expression,” consolidation is stagnation”.
What then are the secrets?

First of all, it’s vital to have a clear plan of how you are going to grow, and to recognize exactly what your business stands for, and your target market…Be clear in everything you do. Don’t be blown off course and stick to your plan, adapting where necessary to changing circumstances…BUT, while still looking ahead.

When you set goals, make sure that they work for you. Make sure that they reflect you and your business and are aligned to your core and values.
Don’t be blown off course…Focus on the important things, what you must do, and in bite sized chunks. Small steps by all add up and build momentum.
Be consistent and don’t be distracted. Be aware of unnecessary changes in focus…vanity projects etc. Stay close to your core. Be a starter finisher!
The route wont always be even. Bumps along the way will occur. Don’t let these push you off track. Evaluate, learn, correct, and move on.
Celebrate your success on the journey…Take your team with you.
Look for people that can help you. Understand the individual strengths of the people in your teams. You are never alone.
Be kind to yourself, look after yourself. Don’t be a slave to the business but be smart in your approach and have some down time.
Build that momentum!

“Whatever beginning goals you set for yourself, following through on them will build momentum and a sense of achievement and those small success will point the way to bigger ones.”  Pamela Glass Kelly
