Is Your Small Business Losing it’s Momentum and in Need of a Small Business Loan or Line of Credit?
Webster’s Dictionary partially describes momentum as: “Strength or force gained by motion or by a series of events.”
Not too long ago President Trump addressed the Boy Scouts National Jamboree in West Virginia in which he gave an inspirational, motivational speech to the Boy Scouts.
Despite all of the attacks by the hate filled “anything about Trump” mainstream media, President Trump offered up some nuggets of wisdom…
…to the Boy Scouts and to anyone else who has an open mind and a willingness to listen.
In that speech, President Trump recalled a story about a time he attended an “A” list New York City party that included all of the Hollywood glitterati.
Instead of mingling with the glamorous celebrities, President Trump recalled that he noticed an old man sitting all by himself in a corner.
President Trump immediately recognized this “old man” as the once famous building developer Mr. Levitt.
Mr. William Levitt, known as the king of suburbia, had whole towns named after him including Levittown on Long Island, N.Y.
President Trump went on to explain how Mr. Levitt amassed a fortune building housing projects all over the New York / Long Island area.
President Trump then told the Boy Scouts how Mr. Levitt sold his company to a conglomerate for a tremendous amount of money even for that time period.
Mr. Levitt then proceeded to travel the world spending his windfall fortune.
Unfortunately for Mr. Levitt, like most driven entrepreneurs, he became disenchanted with the static lifestyle of retirement and wanted to go back to what he loved – building houses.
Long story short – Mr. Levitt went back to building houses but in the end Mr. Levitt failed terribly and lost everything that he had, and eventually had to declare bankruptcy.
Getting back to the “A” list cocktail party that Mr. Trump was attending, he asked Mr. Levitt, what happened?
Mr. Levitt simply replied: “I lost my momentum.”
At one point Mr. Levitt’s business was on fire and he was “king of the hill”.
After retiring and a long absence from the real estate market Mr. Levitt just could not get his magic back.
- He had lost the momentum.
- Have you lost your momentum?
- Is your career or business slowing down.
Do you have debt that is dragging you down and keeping you from moving forward as fast as you should be?
When you feel that your momentum is fading, take a recess and reevaluate the situation.
- Has the market changed?
- Has the economy changed?
- Have you changed?
- Have your goals, dreams and aspirations changed?
Just remember that when you have momentum…
“each success will create another success”.
Think Sir Issac Newton’s 1st Law of Motion “The Law of Inertia”,
“An object in motion continues in motion with the same speed and in the same direction unless acted upon by an unbalanced force.”
This means that once you have your mojo-motion working for you don’t want to slack up but instead keep feeding the fire and greasing the wheels to keep your business running at full speed.
President Trump went on to tell the Boy Scouts, “Never quit, never give up and do something you love.”
When you do something that you love you don’t think of it as work.
