One of the greatest challenges that face Christians all around the world is the art of staying motivated. Most everyone is great at setting a goal or a resolution for their life, but staying motivated is not always that easy.
Very few people are naturally motivated. Typically, we set out to accomplish a personal dream or goal or to create a new success habit in our life then we get excited, energetic and ready to conquer the world. But then a few days or weeks go by and the excitement wears off, and we find ourselves back where we started.
Staying motivated includes learning to create and sustain momentum. John Maxwell says “Momentum is your best friend.” Here are a few benefits waiting for those who learn to stay motivated by gaining and sustaining momentum…
I. BE CONSISTENT IN GROWTH
You will grow faster as an individual and accomplish more in less time when you learn to stay motivated. Often those who cannot stay motivated take one step forward and one step back and they find themselves in an endless cycle resulting in no progress.
II. OVERCOME OBSTACLES
When you are motivated and have momentum you are less likely to be slowed down by a bump in your life. On the other hand, if you have no momentum any bump will cause you to stop.
III. REALIZE YOUR POTENTIAL
It’s simple…without staying motivated and sustaining momentum it is impossible for you, your family or church to reach your personal or public potential. However, when you can stay motivated and create momentum, you will find that it will create an energy and level of faith that will allow potential to be set free. Chris Sonksen (with some editing)
