"It is not of importance where we stand, but in what direction we are moving."
Life is a game of constantly shifting momentum. And its this momentum, be it positive or negative in nature, that ultimately shapes the life you get to enjoy on earth.
You know how the story goes. One minute you might find yourself flying high, with the wind at your back and a world of opportunity unfolding before you. The next minute, life can feel like a hopeless uphill struggle to just barely survive. Up one moment, down the next. The world your oyster one second, then nothing but an empty shell an instant later.
"Sometimes being pushed to the wall gives you the momentum necessary to get over it!"
Peter de Jager
The key to making your life a dream come true is to get lifes momentum moving you in the right direction YOUR DIRECTION and then keeping it there. Whether you like it or not, if you are not moving forward each and every day, you are unfortunately sliding backwards. And thats not the direction you want to be heading.
Nobody, not even the best of us, can ever reach our objectives and achieve our goals going in the wrong direction. Just like the surfer down at the beach, you need to catch a really good wave and then ride it for all its worth. But you should also realize that any old wave isnt going to do. Youre going to need the wave that can carry you all the way to the shore to the realization of your dreams.
"The most important thing you can do to achieve your goals is to make sure that as soon as you set them, you immediately begin to create momentum."
You might want to catch a NEW WAVE, where you test new ideas and try out innovative approaches. A wave that opens your eyes to cutting edge ideas and unrestricted creativity may be your ticket to the top.
Or what about a SECOND WAVE, where you build on existing ideas that you have tried before; only this time adding a twist here, a tweak over there? Tinkering with what youve learned in the past may be just the wave youre looking for.
"Getting momentum going is the most difficult part of the job, and often taking the first step is enough to prompt you to make the best of your day."
Robert J. McKain
Then again, you may need to really shake off the cobwebs by pursuing an off the wall, completely unconventional approach. By thinking way outside of the box, you may astound yourself with the ideas you may come up with. Sometimes people need this kind of SHOCK WAVE to turbo-charge their lives into the fast lane.
And if youve feeling too pooped to pop and fear that your get up and go has got up and left, a HEAT WAVE may be just what the doctor ordered. By getting charged up and filling your life with a fiery enthusiasm for living once again, you may rediscover that white heat passion thats been missing for such a long time.
"One way to keep momentum going is to have constantly greater goals."
Sitting on the beach and watching the waves come crashing in around you isnt what living is all about. You need to get in the game and get lifes momentum moving in the right direction by swimming out to where the action is happening. Then once you get there, dont sit on your board watching others zooming right past you. You should look for the wave thats right for you, catch it and then ride it with every ounce of energy and enthusiasm you can muster.
The Bottom Line: Youll find that once you catch the right wave, that high octane whitecap that can take you anywhere youve dreamed of going, youre going to wave good-bye to the low tides of life once and for all.
