Momentum is the product of the mass and velocity of an object (Momentum = mass times velocity). For example, a heavy truck moving fast has a large momentum—it takes a large and prolonged force to get the truck up to this speed, and it takes a large and prolonged force to bring it to a stop afterwards. If the truck were lighter, or moving more slowly, then it would have less momentum.
In business you seek momentum i.e., you want your business to move at such a pace that it can almost move on its own and would take a prolonged force to bring it to a stop. The more momentum your business has the more others will notice and be attracted to it and thus the better opportunity you’ll have to share your product or service to them. As an example, you’ll notice a large truck going 100 mph over a small SUV going 35 mph.
Understand the two products in the equation that equals momentum; mass and velocity. As you start out in making changes and progress in your business the mass at the beginning will be small, i.e., small business, small capital or in my world a small network marketing team. Velocity is the key to build initial momentum. Velocity is equal to your willpower times your action (V=W x A).
You build velocity by first creating a huge belief and vision in what you want. This creates a burning desire which will magnify your willpower. Then you transfer your belief and thought into performing consistent action over time. As you begin to move at a higher rate (velocity) the mass, which will be small in the beginning, creates more momentum. By creating momentum you’ll begin to achieve results which will make the mass larger; more sales, more profit and more people notice.
In time your business will be the size of a big truck barreling down the road at 100 mph!
Build momentum at first by moving the mass at the highest rate of velocity possible.
