Momentum has an enemy. An arch-nemesis. Complacency. That feeling you get when your satisfied that all is going well.
You’ve pushed the boundaries far enough and now is the time to relax and reap the benefits. Once complacency sets in laziness starts to creep in.
- You see it everyday in sports. A team scores tons of points and victory is 100% guaranteed. The team gets complacent, then out of nowhere you have an upset.
What was a sure thing is now out of grasp, and the victory goes to those that push the momentum.
Pushing the momentum in anything is an advanced move. Not everyone is cut out for it.
Here’s are some phrases that stop momentum:
- Don’t press your luck.
- You’ve got a good thing. Don’t ruin it.
- Just be content with the success you have.
- Don’t mess this up.
- Time quit for the day. The hard work is done.
Momentum doesn’t care about the hard work you’ve done for the day. It doesn’t care how tired you are. All momentum sees is the next opportunity. The next idea. The next move.
Momentum > success.
