Are you on a roll? Are you in a rut? Is it hard for you to get going with your life? Consider the perspective that your life is all about your relationship with momentum.
Long term and short term, your life has momentum. Your ability to get that momentum going, or to shift that momentum, determines the nature of your life. Create a healthy relationship with momentum and you will have a good life. However, that is not so easy to do. In the short term, you may know you need to get off the couch and get to the gym, but making that momentum shift can be difficult. Long term, you may not like your job, but overcoming the momentum of your current routine requires overcoming a great deal of momentum. You may be in a bad relationship. You may have an unhealthy circle of friends. These things can be difficult to shift. Momentum can be your greatest enemy in life.
On the other hand, you can be on a roll with your life. You may have a great relationship, great job, great friends, healthy and evolutionary lifestyle, etc. Perhaps you are meditating twice daily and have a healthy routine. In the areas where your life is working, momentum is your friend.
You can also look at your world view in terms of momentum. How open are you to evolving your world view? Perhaps you feel your current world view is what life is all about and you have all the answers you need. Whatever the case, the quality of your relationship with momentum determines the quality of your life. Evolving your relationship with momentum is what the path of evolution is all about.
Over the next few days, take a look at your life in terms of momentum. What is your relationship with momentum? How easy is it for you to make needed changes? How much of your life is on a positive roll? Where are you in a rut and where are you riding a wave? It’s all about your relationship with momentum. You may want to reflect on Aristotle’s words:
“You are what you repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act, but a habit”.
