Lasting Momentum is your handbook to leveling up your life.
Lots of us make plans to make our lives better every day. The hard part is sticking to the plan when we lose our enthusiasm. The constant guilt, negative self-talk, promises made and then broken - all of this is not serving you. By applying the same effort and tools you’ve always used, you’ll keep getting the same result.
It’s okay. Creating lasting change and positive momentum is actually really difficult to do and requires so much more than just trying to force yourself to do it. There are simple concepts and mind-sets that will help you understand how and why creating lasting change takes a different approach.
Lasting Momentum offers a minimum of disruption to your life because the more uncomfortable and difficult the change is, the harder it will be for it to stick.

Here’s a book excerpt showing an example of mind-set:
“You’ve heard the phrase, “the pen is mightier than the sword” – it means words are powerful. You can harness that power for you, too. Simply change your framing! Use words to your benefit.
Instead of saying, “I should get off the couch and pack lunch for work tomorrow,” or “I have to focus on this class,” try actually saying to yourself “I want to” or “I get to” instead.
It sounds small, but it can be quite powerful. Here’s a quick way to adopt it – instead of “I have to call my grandmother for her birthday even though I find it boring,” think “I want to call my grandmother because it will make her happy.”
Lasting Momentum is full of BS-free and sometimes boring strategies and tips to help you get your shit together and keep it together. I learned how to do this the hard way, so you don’t have to.
Time passes regardless - make sure you are moving in the direction you want!
