Start by doing what's necessary; then do what's possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible.

Where momentum lives

Your mind is where momentum lives. And with your mind, you can control and direct that powerful force of momentum.

If things seem to be going from bad to worse, you’re allowing momentum to flow against you. The instant you change that perception in your mind, you’ve already turned the momentum around in your favor.

Momentum gets its power from your perception of the past and of how that past relates to right now. The way to positively direct your momentum is by seeing what is positive about the things that have already happened.

You cannot change the past, yet any time you wish, you can change what you take from it. Simply by seeing the past as having moved you forward in some way, you’ve suddenly put the enormous power of momentum on your side.

Change your thinking about the past and you’ll improve the reality of where you are. The more thankful you are for what has come before, the more happy you’ll be with what is yet to come.

— Ralph Marston
