Think back to a time when you were excited about an idea that you had. Do you remember the incredible feeling of excitement and all the ideas that ran through your mind? You could probably hardly wait to start working on making your new idea a reality.
That memorable feeling is called motivation and is one of the most important factors in success. Wired for Greatness(WFG) is an e-book written by JIFU’s co-founder Jeffery Boyle, where he details some of his secrets to success and offers valuable tips for self improvement. WFG Module 5 is about harnessing and sustaining the power of momentum and motivation. Here, we want to share some of the most important tips offered by Jeffery, though the book goes much further in depth.

Three Types of Momentum
Maintaining motivation is all about how to keep your positive momentum active. The three most important types of momentum are momentum of thought, momentum of action, and momentum in a relationship.An active thought process naturally leads into action, which is often the most difficult to maintain momentum with. Momentum in a relationship is important because success often hinges professional connections.
”“Without the momentum of thought, we tend not to make goals at all. We entertain ideas instead.”-Jeffery Boyle, WFG
Everyone feels stress, but managing anxiety will often help your productivity level. Another great tip is to recognize your time-wasting behavior so that you can stop procrastinating. Video games, apps, Facebook and other social media have been proven to deliver a little jolt of endorphins the more you indulge. However, the little jolt is not sustainable, nor does contribute to your personal momentum.

Your Body and Mind are Connected
The connection between your physical and mental self is not groundbreaking knowledge, but acting on this knowledge is key. For example, sleep is vital to maintaining momentum and motivation. 7-9 hours of sleep is ideal, but the power of a nap is not to be underestimated. Similarly, exercise contributes massively to your ability to be productive later. If you combine exercise with learning new things, you’ll retain the information better so you can use it later”-Jeffery Boyle, WFG
