Newton’s 1st Law Of Motion

external force, momentum

“An object at rest will remain at rest unless acted upon by an unbalanced force;An object in motion will remain in motion unless acted upon by an unbalanced force. This is also known as the Law of Inertia”. Sir Isaac Newton

Both the first part and the second part of this law apply to everything you do in your business or personal life. Basically if you do nothing to move you towards your target (apply a force) – then you will remain at rest – or basically stay where you are, but more importantly once you are going and you have momentum you will keep going unless you let an external force stop you or divert you.

How does this apply to you – let me explain.

1. To move from where you are in your business or personal life you need a force – a reason why. This force can come from an external influence or from within. An external influence might be a change in circumstances, an internal force may come from the desire to change something, to achieve more, to do more. An external force will normally lead to an internal force being created. But what if there is no external force – what if someone is not making you do something different ? you need to find that force from within.
This is why goal setting is so important – being clear on what you want and where you want to be creates the internal force to get you to take action. Of course an internal force will move you in a direction you want, where as an external force may make you move in a direction they want ! What force is driving you ? What force could drive you ? How could you create massive leverage and gain momentum………….

2. When you have momentum, purpose, focus and real desire only a significant external force will move you from your chosen course. If you have real passion about why you are headed in a certain direction then your momentum will keep you going in that direction no matter what obstacles (forces) are put in your way.

Who are we to argue with the laws of nature ?? Let’s understand and use them to help us achieve what we want in our lives.
This weeks video to get you energized and to build up your momentum going forward. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rbM-TY-JEy8

As many of you know I am off next week on my biggest challenge yet. A 300 mile foot race in the Canadian Arctic. You can find out about the race at www.articultra.de/en/
As part of the challenge I am raising money for a young girl who was born with no ears and requires an expensive operation so that she can hear. You can find out more about Grace and how to support my challenge through this link http://humanitydirect.org/fdrp/46/

Thanks for your support.

 All the best……….. Neil…………………
