Starting Over Again? Try Learning From Mistakes And Maintaining Your Momentum

Starting over is sometimes necessary but if you start over whenever you make a mistake you won’t reach anywhere.

Some people who seem loyal will not be around if you start over. These people are with you because you’ve built momentum. Your momentum has created a huge wave for them to ride.

Your day ones are people who were with you from the start. Society is interested in the end product but your day ones see your potential.

Your day ones will be there when you start over but even they will get tired if you keep starting over whenever you make a mistake.

If you had no day ones at least you were there for yourself.

Instead of starting over whenever you make a mistake learn from it and continue moving forward.

To reach somewhere significant requires momentum.

Consistency builds momentum.
Momentum is magnetic.
Magnetism attracts opportunities.
The more momentum builds the faster things manifest.
Once you build momentum maintain it.

  1. A beautiful and thought provoking post!.
    I love, “Consistency builds momentum.

    Best wishes.

  2. Very true what you said, I find myself now in the street, literally no house to sleep. I´m the one that had a blog named charly priest-crazy life, now with a new account. And people that were there at the day to day saw mistake after mistake that I commited until they got tired, no family support just me and me, sleeping in the airport, going from one free meal to another from the nuns normally, you can shower in one place from Monday to Friday for free, they give you some clothes, e.t.c not much e.t.c though, hard to go to a job interview dressed as a begger. Anyways it was a good read since it resonated very much with me. Have a great day, nice to be back in the wordpress community.

  3. There is a lesson to be learned even we make mistakes, and I agree, we do not always need to go backwards, but rather understand the lesson and continue in the right direction and maintain your momentum. I like the term, “day ones,” as I relate them to people who are true friends, who will generally support you. Those who do not support you, tend to drag you down and hold you back. Good lesson.

    1. “As long as we’re alive we’re learning.” You are so right. I also think that a love for learning is one of the best qualities we can cultivate.

      Thank you for sharing your thoughts.

  4. Yes. I love this. Starting over can be necessary at any stage of the process. The hardest part is knowing whether to keep at it or stop and start over. But we all need to realize it’s okay to try again.

    1. You are right, we need to realize that it is okay to try again. When people start over the best thing we can do is give them encouragement.

      Sometimes starting over is best, sometimes we should just keep pushing on. May we make the right decision if ever faced with that choice.

  6. Reading your post I realized how powerful our momentums can be. It is always difficult to start over that we sometimes return back to our comfort zone. I did it many times and later regretted it.
    Thank you for writing this post! It made me think.

  7. Reading your post I realized how powerful our momentums are. It is always difficult to start over and we sometimes return back where we were to feel more comfortable and more secure. I did it many times and later regretted it.

    1. When we feel like returning to our comfort zone, we can remind ourselves that what is uncomfortable eventually becomes easy.

  8. “Progress means getting nearer to the place you want to be. And if you have taken a wrong turning, then to go forward does not get you any nearer. If you are on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; and in that case the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive man.”
    ― C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity

    1. This is an interesting quote from C.S.Lewis… yet everything I fear, depends on one’s mindset… if one’s mindset is the same, then all is lost, regardless of what one does… but if one’s mindset as come to grips with the error, then the onset of progress as began… so although making an “about turn and walking back to the right road… is progressive” it is not I believe the “most progressive.”

      The one who veers towards the right road, at the point the error as been established is more progressive…

      eg.,

      It was, I dear say, not C.S. Lewis’ intent to echo the mindset of Nicodemus, when he queried the Christ’s words: Born Again… but his statement says this… when Nicodemus contemplates a return to the mother’s womb…

      Nicodemus did not understand that the Christ meant one was to ‘veer off’ from the point where one was at… towards the right road, is in essence to be Born Again… and therefore… most progressive…

    1. It’s amazing what momentum, consistency and care does. We hold a seed in our hand but when we plant it, and give it consistent care it grows into a tree that towers over us.

      Thank you for sharing your thoughts.
