What do you get excited about? Seriously, what excites you?
You know the feeling. There is something you are doing, thinking about and now you can feel it is about to happen. Your heart beats faster. You can’t stop smiling. You have been looking forward to this and now the time has come!
On board an oceangoing ship, after days at sea, the knowledge that in a few days you will arrive in port creates this excitement. Everyone on board starts to think about what they will look forward to doing. A few crew members all of a sudden have shaved. After possibly weeks of not shaving their face, all of a sudden, they appear years younger.
The options on how to spend your time and money in port are all choices and decisions made by each person. Some crew members allow others to influence their decisions. Others know exactly what they want to do and follow their own path.
I ask you again – What do you get excited about? Seriously, what excites you?
In your career it may be added responsibility, or a promotion, or relocating to a new location. Maybe you changed where you work and are starting in that new position.
In you own business it may be the completion of a project or rolling out a new service or product. Possibly opening up in another market or location. All of these will build excitement in you.
What this can do is start something special – Momentum!
Momentum is when you first start down the mountain on skis. Momentum is when you are riding your bike down the mountain you just climbed to get to this side. Momentum is when driving your car down a steep hill. The movement started in the beginning just keeps picking up speed.
What you do in these situations?
If skiing, do you glide along and enjoy the run?
If on the bike, do you gear down and keep riding in the created breeze?
If driving your car, do you start tapping the brakes?
Take a few minutes – right now – consider what excites you?
Now with your list in mind – imagine the forward thrust of momentum. The momentum created by your excitement can propel you into another level.
Where might this take you that you cannot even conceive right now…if you allow momentum to work and don’t tap on the brakes?
The next time you are excited in a situation, allow the momentum opportunity to run. Work on the momentum and allow it to build.
Feed the momentum and add fuel to this force to propel you to greater heights.
