Taking chances, building, having momentum and living life on hard-mode, can take its toll on your body.
If you’re living life on the offense or living life aggressively it can mean nights where you can’t sleep because a thousand thoughts are running through your head.
When you’ve got so much energy that you’ll willing to put yourself through hours of writing eventually it will catch up with you.
Your mind is willing but the body wants rest. You wake up with your mind running right where it left off.
Sometimes you can’t eat because at this point you’re running on adrenaline and emotion. You wish it would die down so you can have a moment of clarity but in the back of your head you know that will kill the momentum.
In the back of your head you know momentum is greater than success.
Momentum is what takes you to the next level. And at the highest levels you will start to notice your body start to break down, but you keep going.
Momentum is something that can be lost and is hard to get back. If you’re on a roll keep going and keep pressing the agenda. It’s a battle.
Momentum doesn’t want you to take a break, it’s always looking for the next idea, the next thing, the next level.
My advice is to be aware of the dangers of momentum. Take a break when needed. But be quick to get back in the game. Realize that it’s a good problem to have because it means your living life on the offense and not playing defense.
