Creating Momentum

Friday, February 01, 2013

One of my favorite speakers and authors is Zig Zigler. In one of his speeches Zig talks about an old pumping well. I posted a video about his part of his speech. In the video, he talks about pumping water and working and pumping, and working and pumping, and never stopping until you have a steady stream of water coming out. This is point of momentum and most people never see it because they donít work hard enough to see it.

Creating Momentum Toward Your Goals

I love that story because it really does a great job painting the picture of creating momentum. You see success isnít about any one thing, especially when it comes to weight loss. Itís about a combination of things but ultimately itís about staying consistent and working toward your goals. Coming up with a magic supplement (ie Rasberry Keytones now!) or anything from TV isnít going to be your one trick pony. You need a combination of a strong diet and fitness. Day in and day out! Taking breaks on the weekend because you feel you have earned it will only make you lose momentum.

Am I saying that you canít have fun or eat pizza every now and then? That just depends on how bad you want to succeed. How bad do you want to hit those goals? Creating momentum doesnít mean you stop every so often. You have to keep the pedal to the floor if you want to be successful!

Yours in Health,

Nick Jarosh

    Great video - funny and so true. I will hit the gym today with extra vigor! Hmmm... the pump is a great image for weight loss and other long term goals, it is easy to give up because of the effort but if we stay consistently at it we will eventually reap the benefits. Thanks for sharing this. It was fun good inspiration :)
