Here are three ways you can sustain and keep the momentum going.

1) Consistent action

Taking consistent action can help you reach your goals faster by sustaining the momentum that gets you going in the first place. Once you have overcome the initial inertia to getting started, putting in place a series of consistent action can sustain your momentum to reach your goals more successfully.

For example, when using article marketing to drive traffic in your online business you need to have momentum in order to gain success. Once you have submitted a few articles, gained a few subscribers and some traffic; momentum will sustain your success by providing the drive to write and submit more articles for sustained traffic to your website.

2) Push yourself to become better

You need to consistently push yourself to become better once you have reached your goal. There are many others who feel 'lost' once they have reached their desired goal, not knowing what to do next. Thus it is important to have a series of goals to sustain your growth throughout your life.

In order to sustain your success and not become a one hit wonder, it is important to have a series of goals you want to achieve in your life.

There are many people who have listed a set of 101 goals they want to achieve in life; this is what keeps them going after they have achieved a goal.

3) Fight off disappointments and discouragement

There will be times when we do not reach the goals we have set for ourselves. You have to fight off the disappointment and put things in perspective. Review your actions and find out why you have not achieved the goals despite taking certain actions. Can you leverage on people or resources to help you reach your goals faster and more successfully the next time round?

Secondly, there will be people around us who question why we are going after a certain goal. Well, they may be well-meaning people such as our family who do not wish to see us get hurt when we do not achieve our goals, but you have got to fight off this discouragement in order to reach your goals.

There are people who do not realize that they have the momentum going in their lives at certain points. They get distracted by the 101 things that keep popping up in their lives on a daily basis.

Do not let this happen to you and you can sustain the momentum to get going towards reaching your goals. Remember the word momentum cones from the word 'moment'. When you are in the momentum, work twice as hard so that it will be sustained and you can reach your goals faster.
