Building momentum is very difficult, even for the most capable and motivated individuals.
At first, it's like attempting to budge an enormous boulder. It takes enormous energy just to move it a few inches. Even then, momentum isn't created yet; when it finally starts inching forward, you must continue pushing it. Otherwise, it'll lose what small momentum it has.
This is the point where most people stop. In some grand show of sheer willpower, they exert all their energy towards some worthy goal — starting to write a book, working out, going back to school, etc.
But they find their initial push produces little to no effect — the boulder barely moved.
Since they were riding almost entirely on adrenaline and a surge of inspiration, they tire out almost immediately. And the result is the same result as a dozen times before — they stop pushing.
The boulder inches to a complete stop. And life goes on the same way as before — unchanged and uninspired.
Building momentum isn't easy. But it's simple. If you follow this simple formula, you'll be able to build unstoppable momentum in any endeavor you want. Here's how.
