How to Maintain Momentum After a Huge Breakthrough


Hopefully we’ve all had those “A-Ha!” moments in our lives where something that we’ve been struggling with for a long time just clicks and it’s almost as if the clouds part and an entire new path is illuminated before you. Whereas before you were unsure of where to go or what to do next, or maybe even how to get started, you now have a sudden clarity which in itself brings a new feeling of confidence and excitement about your life and your ability to walk the path you were meant to walk.

If you can relate, then you also know that sometimes we get so caught up in the initial high of the “revelation” or insight that somewhere along the line we soon find ourselves again into bad habits, perhaps back to self-sabotaging, bringing doubt and fear back into the picture and letting our ego run the show. I know better than anyone that this is such an easy thing to fall back into and it’s beyond frustrating when you catch yourself doing nothing but distracting yourself from the real work you need to be doing to move you towards completing your goals.

There are SO many different things I love to do and at some earlier time in my life I convinced myself that it’s possible to learn them all…at the same time. But what this actually does is making you the cliché “jack of all trades, master of none”. I recently realized that while I don’t need to give up on liking these different hobbies or wanting to learn them, what I do need to do is FOCUS! I need to pick one and really dive deep into it and learn it through and through. This is the art of mastery and it works the same way with anything you wish to become good at. Wash…rinse…repeat.

Last week I attended Derek Rydall’s Emergence Live Event in Long Beach, California and I just gotta say that it cracked me wide open…in the greatest of ways! To be surrounded by such heart-felt, passion-driven people who I realized were having the same fears and struggles that I was, was beyond endearing and surprisingly; empowering. It was empowering because I knew then and there that I was not alone that I was an important part of something much bigger than myself. And that with each passing moment that I sat around doubting my gifts and abilities, was a chance wasted to positively affect another human life; which is the very fuel that drives my spirit and soul.

So, how am I continuing to ride the “wave of awesomeness” I caught in Cali and keeping the momentum going? Well, to put it bluntly, I am kicking my own proverbial ass! I am holding myself accountable for the things I really want to do with my life by actually doing the work to bring them into my reality. I am freaking terrified to do some of the things I have planned that will launch me into the world as a holistic life coach, exposed as the flawed and still learning human that I am…but ya know what? I’ve come to learn (with the help of the many beautiful souls I met last weekend) that THAT is my greatest gift. Our more difficult experiences and our own vulnerability is what makes us relatable to one another and I realized that what I want most out of life is to help people just like me break out of their shells.

One specific suggestion I can offer is to get VERY clear on your vision plan. Force yourself to get as specific as you possibly can. The clearer the actions you need to take, the more you up your chances on you actually taking them!

From my wide-open heart to yours, have a most Blessed Samhain, and a Happy Halloween! 🙂

    I like this article. It gave me a different way to look at momentum after a breakthrough. I like how the author mentioned, being a master of none because of a lack of perceived focus. Even in a perceived moment of no momentum, its there. Distractions are eery momentum catalyst, really. They are apart of what helps you achieve mastery, I feel. They remind you that you are spending time pondering something less than your latest AHA breakthrough. If you ask yourself why you made the choice to divert your focus, you will learn something about when you need a break from your focus and what you feel comfortable doing during that time.
