Build Momentum

Have you ever watched the strong man contest where they pull a plane? In case you haven’t. These guys, put on a harness that is attached by chains to the front of a plane (approx 70 tons) and pull it from a dead stop, for 30 meters. The hardest part is getting the plane started, but once they get it going, it’s amazing the momentum they can build. To do this, they obviously need a tremendous amount of strength but more importantly they need the following:

1. A belief that they can do it
2. A goal that they are attempting to achieve (30 Meters)
3. Most importantly, they need to start (The first pull)

Start your day by believing in yourself and your abilities. Set a goal as to what you expect from yourself, your 30 meters. Once you have done those two things and only once you have done those two things, get the plane rolling. That initial pull is the hardest part. It’s were fear and doubt show up and try to convince you it’s not worth trying. If you can get down and start the initial pull, you will be amazed how quickly the momentum builds. Just like pulling the planes, the more you practice and train, the better you will get and the more you will believe in yourself.
Don’t waste another minute, put on your harness, feel the weight of the chains trying to drag you down, and then PULL, PULL with all your might!!!!!!!!!

I wish I could take credit for that but I can't. Tia t

Don't take credit for saying it, take credit for doing it.
