In a recent posting, I stated that consistency is my biggest weapon. It’s not unusual for me to train, but I don’t miss the days. Thus, I never have to start all over again and gain momentum. And a powerful impulse. I know what it is (in terms of learning), but I also know what it means to lose in other areas. So in this post I will share my strengths and struggles with the beast, which I call impulse.
For our purposes, we can define momentum as force or force gained by movement or series of events,
And this simple definition underlines the importance of the beginning. Just get up and go. Because action, movement and progress forward create momentum.
Conversely, we have no chance to gain momentum if we are lost as a result of paralysis as a result of the analysis. In other words, don't think about things. Regardless of your goals, you do not need to have all the answers before you begin. Often the best thing to do is take a step forward.
Initially, you may not know where you are going, but as your steps accumulate ahead, your momentum will also increase. And this is the impulse that allows you to learn in practice. You suddenly find a way, new ideas arise, and now you are making progress.
When we think of impulse as force or force gained by movementin fact it sums up my workouts. I am far from perfect, but I agree with one thing. No matter what I feel, I get up and leave. I always do something.
As I said, something beats nothing. I am living proof. I do not follow any fashionable routine. On the contrary, my training is almost completely devoid of complexity.
However, it is amazing how much can be achieved if you work hard and keep a consistent My own consistent efforts have allowed me to overcome a wave of impulse for several decades.
Good things happen when you regularly tear your ass.
Yes, I know all about the power of the impulse. Unfortunately, I also know what to lose and how difficult it is to recover.
For a long time, readers of this site may know what I'm talking about. A few years ago, I updated this blog several times a week. I have always been busy working on new projects (for example, books, DVDs, etc.).
Ultimately, I became so busy coaching that I lost my creative impulse. The days began to fly by, and I forgot what it was like to be the person who started this site.
Many months ago I created this blog to share as much information as possible with as many readers as possible. It was a goal, but I failed in recent years. And this is regrettable because now I am wiser and more experienced than ever before.
What's the point?
Some may wonder why I'm writing about how I tried my best to write. But bear with me, because I believe that there is an important lesson here.
First, it is entirely possible to have momentum in some parts of your life, fighting in others. Real life is not a movie that many pretend to be in social networks. Real life is difficult, and no one is immune from such difficulties. We all need to recognize this simple fact.
Secondly, I also believe that it is important to highlight, rather than hide, our own shortcomings and shortcomings. I am not ashamed to admit where I failed, as this is often the first step necessary to turn the tide.
It’s impossible to solve a problem if you don’t want to admit that it exists.
Fortunately, the decision to restore the impulse (in all) is quite simple. This is a performance that can be difficult.
It comes down to action. You either do it or not. But when you act, good things happen.
For example, I sat down to write this entry an hour ago, and here I am. Almost done. I would never have come here if I had not taken this first step forward.
So the impulse is a beast. I saw it in action as a trainer, and it is invaluable. The power gained by movement can be incredible. Once again, however, nothing happens without action.
So stop lingering, get up and go. This is my plan, and anyone who has lost momentum can join me.
