Momentum Used in Media

If you take a look at many companies such as Netflix, Amazon Prime shows, and even TV, radio, and any subscription service really… they all use the power of habit and momentum to keep you hooked.  Many people have Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon Prime to stream shows. What happens when you finish a show or episode? Those services autoplay the next program, in an attention-grabbing intro lure.

The channel automatically starts the next show. The radio segways right into the new segment.  YouTube suggests the next video in your new rabbit hole obsession, (though thankfully you can toggle the auto-play off)! Social media’s endless scroll keeps our attention hypnotized on other people’s highlight-reel versions of life.

There are a lot of brands today that are using the power of momentum to help their consumers easily stay attached to their service. Sometimes, these are to our benefit (e.g., healthy meal box subscriptions), but many times to our detriment (e.g., encouraging binge consumption).

But here’s the thing…

…the really big thing:

YOU ARE IN CHARGE!!

Gaining momentum in the direction you want to go is entirely in your hands.

The winning game is to harness your own creative momentum instead of letting outside forces control your focus. The reins are in your hands. You can change the flow of any downward spiral the moment you choose to. The course-correct may not show up instantly, but the process is begun with choice.

Newton discovered a universal law that you’re probably well aware of, which speaks to momentum:

“A body in motion stays in motion, and a body at rest stays at rest, unless, acted upon by an outside force.”

If you could use some momentum quotes to inspire your way today, you're in the right place.

Momentum is Power

Momentum is powerful. Make sure you’re putting it to work for you, not against you.

Once you build a positive habit and commit to it, it’s far easier to keep going. Positive habits end up being their own reward.  The more you produce, create, and show up, the more you want to create. Not only because creativity begets creativity, but also because you feel fulfilled. Fulfillment becomes its own reward.

The choices you make and the actions you take determine your direction daily.

Steven Pressfield, author of War of Art, would call this your “Dragon of Resistance rearing its ugly head.” The dragon, is an apt and colorful depiction of self-sabotage.

Fortunately, if you’re reading this article, you’re already seeking positive, motivating habits! Immersion in mindset builds positive momentum in your life, so keep at it!

“Resistance by definition is self-sabotage.”

The Power of Habit

To identify the activities that help or hinder your creative goals, we recommend writing them down.

Habits List

Take a sheet of paper and create a dividing line down the middle.

ASK: What Supports Your Goals and What Detracts?

  • On one side list activities, behaviors, and thoughts that serve you in achieving your goals.
  • On the other side, write down the negative activities, behaviors, and thoughts that do not serve you.

It’s important to include behaviors and thoughts in your lists because thought is where habits begin.

Most of us are running on the autopilot of unconscious motivations and subconscious programming. The more we become aware of what’s motivating and compelling us to act or not, the more we can take back control of the direction of our lives.

Momentum is increased or decreased by habit. Choose good habits and you’ll speed up the journey to your goals.

We’ve written about that more about the power of good habits in this article.

“Professionals are the architects of their habits.
Amateurs are the victims of their habits.”

Ignite Your Creativity!

Everyone gets stuck or off-track at some point. It’s just part of being human. Staying stuck is what you want to avoid at all costs.  Progress has power but so does inertia.

It may sound oxymoronic, but inertia has its own momentum. The momentum of being stuck can spiral into a black hole of inaction… of spinning in circles and lead to feeling helpless, weak and hopeless.

Inertia can even lead to depression and illness. This is—in part—because the definition of life is motion.

Inaction and inertia is anti-life… it’s against what we’re here to do.
Grow… We’re here to grow.
