How To Get Your Momentum Back

It can be easy to lose your momentum in life, especially when life or circumstances can get in the way. When you start losing momentum is when you tend to get lazy or even give up. Perhaps you wanted certain things and things didn’t turn out the way you planned them to be. You had certain expectations and you are not yet where you want to be in life. When you get to that point is when you can start spiraling down and all you are left asking yourself, if you are not careful, is what just happened.

I would like to start by explaining the importance of having momentum in life and then I will go on to offering some suggestions to getting your momentum in life back. Having momentum is what keeps you going, keeps you going after your dreams in life and momentum provides you with energy. This is when you can be at your best, performing at your best and feeling your best. However, I have learned that in order to keep this momentum going, it is you who plays a role in this. It is you who have to keep the momentum going. At first it may feel or seem that not much effort is put from your part to have momentum but with time, it is you who have to fuel yourself to keep going. When you notice that you are losing momentum, there are several things that you can do so that you can get yourself back on track.

The first thing is to remember your vision or your goal. You have to go back to this. Remember what you wanted in the first place. Remember why you wanted what you wanted and remember the feelings you had at the beginning. Reminding yourself of your goals and how it felt to have those goals and remembering your why can help rekindle that feeling and thought of reaching those goals again. Do whatever it takes for you to keep that vision alive. A lot of times we tend to forget our dreams and when we do is when we can start spiraling down and not even notice until one day we just don’t feel happy with where we are in life. Always remind yourself of what you want out of life and keep that vision alive.

Apart from remembering your vision and goals, it is important to know that there may be some setbacks and that’s ok. Setbacks is what helps you learn and grow. It’s all part of the process. Sit back and review what were the setbacks and what can you learn from them. Ask yourself why were these things or events setbacks and question your role in each event. We are a part of every equation of everything that happens in our life. This is part of taking responsibility for your life and being in the driver seat of your life. Learn from what works and doesn’t work. What doesn’t work, ask yourself why it doesn’t work. You may learn a thing or two about yourself when doing this.

If you stopped doing what you enjoyed doing or you put aside what you were doing to reach your goals, just get back to that goal again. Start small again if you have to. You don’t have to do massive things in order to reach your goals. Just get back to what you were doing and do something every day that gets you closer to your goal. I will use as an example the process of losing weight. There will be times where you may plateau and this can discourage you and make you not want to workout or want to eat junk food. Even if you stopped exercising for several weeks, don’t beat yourself up because of this. Just get back to working out and eating healthy.

As human beings, it is normal to have bad days and good days, just don’t let those bad days take over your day and life. Same thing with when you lose momentum, you don’t have to let it make you spiral down in life. When losing momentum, it can feel like a bit of a blow to your life and well-being but it doesn’t have to be this way. Remember your vision/goal, learn from your setbacks, and just get back to what you were doing that made you happy. Just like a child as it starts to learn how to walk they fall and they get right back up, we too need to do the same and in doing so, that momentum that was once lost will come back.

“¿Cómo puedo librarme de ese sentir de estar estancada?”

Creo que muchas personas se sienten estancadas de vez en cuando en la vida porque a veces las circunstancias de la vida se mete en el camino. Sin embargo, si usted constantemente se siente estancado, entonces algo está pasando. El sentirse estancado constantemente puede hacer que usted se sienta sin esperanza, deprimido y con el sentir de que usted no tiene ningun control sobre su vida. Estos sentimientos son los sentimientos que atraen a usted más situaciones y personas que lo harán que se estanque o lo mantendrá en esa situación que lo estanca.

Una de las maneras de librarse de ese sentir de estar estancado es teniendo claridad de lo que usted quiere y necesita. Es el saber lo que usted quiere y necesita lo que lo ayudará a entender cuáles son los pasos que tiene que tomar para seguir hacia adelante. Sin tener esa claridad de lo que usted quiere y necesita, no hay manera de tomar los pasos necesarios para llegar hacia a donde usted quiere ir. Sin esa claridad, usted no va a tomar las decisiones correctas. Sin esa claridad, es fácil tomar cualquier decisión por desesperación o por las emociones en vez de porque usted tiene una meta en mente. Esta claridad es también parte de usted vivir con intención porque cuando usted vive con intención, usted vive sabiendo lo que usted quiere de la vida.

Usted necesita CREER que usted tiene el poder de hacer los cambios necesarios en su vida. Sin esta creencia, usted permite que las circunstancias fuera de usted determinen la dirección que va a ir su vida. Sin esta creencia, usted está siendo controlado por sus pensamientos y emociones. Sin esta creencia, usted continuamente va a tomar decisiones que lo aleja de la persona que usted quiere ser. Muchas veces tenemos la tendencia de olvidar que lo que creemos afecta lo que atraemos, la decisiones que tomamos y las situaciones que nosotros mismos permitimos.

Cuando usted tiene claridad de lo que usted quiere y necesita y cree que tiene el poder de hacer los cambios necesarios en su vida, usted va a poder encontrar maneras para cambiar su vida. Hay algo hermoso que sucede dentro de usted cuando usted comienza a creer que puede hacer los cambios necesarios en su vida y eso es oportunidades, las oportunidades adecuadas comienzan a llegar a su vida de manera que usted nunca esperaba. Pero para que esto suceda, usted tiene que estar abierto a esta posibilidad.

Estos pasos son importantes para usted salir de ese sentir de que está estancado. Creo que esta es una de las muchas razones que nos detiene de la vida que uno quiere y de tener balance en la vida lo cual todos nosotros necesitamos. El sentirse estancado no tiene que ser su vida y usted no fue diseñado para sentirse de esta manera. Está en su poder el romper este ciclo de sentirse estancado.
