I totally agree with your sentiment. Sounds to me like success is more of a verb than a static noun. At the moment, I feel like I'm 'successing"...

Thank you Simon for sharing your thoughts.

I never thought of success as momentum ....
But i totally agree with you.I think momentum and believe in yourself goes hand in hand .

Success for me is to do what i'm happy with , be the person i want to be and help others to do the same .

Wish you momentum in your world -changing mission.

Momentum like you said feels like you are starting to become successful, but is it really a measurement of success? If you depend on momentum for the "feeling" of success, that would mean you can only "feel" success when you have momentum, and I don't know if we can have momentum all of the time.

The bigger question is Why do we need to have momentum to have the feeling of success?

Simon, you have changed the way we approach our business. I am a sales development expert and one aspect of what we do is help people with their “30 second commercial” , i.e when people ask you what you do, what do you tell them. Since people buy emotionally and not intellectually, starting with the “WHY” when telling someone what you do is critical. Thanks to you we have added getting to the “WHY, to our sales approach
I love your latest post. I have been struggling with my own “WHY” lately, and my pursuit for “success” in life. I feel good about my career and life when I help others achieve their goals. So the thought of momentum is right on, you’ve hit the nail on the head. It doesn’t matter how much money or success you have had in the past, what matters is where you are going and why you are going there. If you see momentum, then you have hope and faith that you will get there.
You are making a difference and I greatly appreciate the humility and sincerity in which you think and write.

Darren Beattie

This is a great post. I loved your TEDtalk by the way.

I think that a lot of people struggle to figure out their own 'why' which ultimately leads to the feeling of no purpose. And consequently the feeling of not having success.

I believe why is very important, but I also think we need to address methods that help people figure out their own 'why.' How then do we educate good coaches to help people figure this stuff out too?

If you were to ask the 90% of people, who have little job satisfaction, 'why' they did what they did, they would not know. If they do answer it is often a typical but meaningless version of why, many people will answer with what they think they are supposed to answer. I sense most people would say that money is the reason they do what they do, but that response is linked more to what they think others are expecting to hear because many people believe others will judge them if they say something else.

How do we flip the switch?

As you said, starting with "WHY" is the most important, thus the momentum is there from the first step.

Thanks for sharing your experiences...

Very well written.
I really appreciate the fact that you ask a lot of questions. Never heard of success in these terms.

I am sure the world will one day be a place thanks to people like you.

Keep up the momentum and keep up the good work!
