Inner Momentum

“It always seems impossible until it’s done.” ― Nelson Mandela

My very best friend recently impressed me with a series of recent accomplishments that just months ago seemed like an endless list of monumental tasks. Even though I didn’t have much of anything to do with the accomplishments, apart from providing moral support, I felt a shared sense of victory and relief that the goals were met.

When you first look at a distant (or near for that matter!) goal, it’s not entirely unlikely that a feeling of impotence weariness will pass through your feeling realm, seeking agreement. What you do with that feeling goes a long way in determining your inner momentum. If you latch on to it, wrap it around you, stick your toes in it to see how it feels, you will likely be shackled with a sense of powerlessness in relation to the goal until such time as you overcome the inertia of impuissance.

If, however, you recognize the feeling and perhaps note its presence, but don’t give your heart to it, you will quickly move past it and move onward and upward in relation to the goal. I’ve come to learn that we are our own worst enemies in this regard. No one can stop you as much as you can.

Remember this point and you will be well on your way to achieving that which is yours to accomplish in life. Have a great day!

One thought on “Inner Momentum

  1. Again thank you for your timely and accomplishing words. Looked up the word impuissance and found it was defined as “unable to take effective action.” I take note of the word effective. Good to see more what it takes to be effective in accomplishing what is ours to accomplish. May I echo your words to recognize the feeling of impotence and weariness noting its presence not giving our heart to it is vital as well as giving our heart to that which we have have been designed to provide and providing it!
