Momentum and Flow

Rising,

Climbing,

No Stopping Now

Momentum is a funny thing. When we’re seeking it, it can be elusive. We struggle, we reach but everything takes more effort than it should.

When we have momentum with us, the wind is in our sails. We’re in a state of flow that is hard to describe. It feels like nothing can stop us. We’re on a roll.

Momentum turns up when it turns up but we have to help it along by putting one foot in front of the other. By striving to do our best. By striving to be our best.

Embrace flow, embrace momentum but also embrace the effort along the way as part of your journey.
