We all like momentum, but it is deceptive.
When you have momentum, it makes everything look better than it is.
When you don't have momentum, it makes everything look worse than it is.
- Andy Stanley
It's why one of your roles in any arena of momentum -
be it life, work or play -
is reminding people what reality is and isn't.
The best way?
Celebrate actual momentum when it happens.
And if it doesn't happen?
Point toward somewhere it is outside of your circle and humbly ask, "What can we learn from that?"
"Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith" (Hebrews 12:2)
