Forward Motion What Is It and What Happens When You Stop It we are going to be talking about another law, one just like The Law of Gravity that is just as real, just as powerful. This other law of forward motion can get your attention just like gravity and in some cases, causes pain also. No one ever doesn’t think gravity isn’t real because we all have been affected by it in one way or another. We have dropped something or tripped over something and the result is always the same… we fall, get hurt or something breaks because of it, The Law of Gravity. So, The Law of Forward Motion has some of the same characteristics. It’s one of those things you probably don’t pay much attention to, but it’s real none the less.

Forward Motion in the English language means:

  1. The act of moving forward (as toward a goal)
  2. The act of changing location from one place to another.
  3. An effort to advance; the general progression of your working or professional life.
  4. Advancing as if in the child’s game, by leaping over obstacles or competitors.

Just to give you out the 3 kinds of law of motions so you guys would have an idea what we are discussing and how we can relate this to the business world:

The First Law of Motion states, “A body at rest will remain at rest, and a body in motion will remain in motion unless it is acted upon by an external force.” This simply means that things cannot start, stop, or change direction all by themselves. It takes some force acting on them from the outside to cause such a change.

The Second Law of Motion describes what happens to a massive body when it is acted upon by an external force. It states, “The force acting on an object is equal to the mass of that object times its acceleration.”

The Third Law of Motion states, “For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.”

So, if we are to relate the meaning of “forward motion” to our business or in general, as you can see it has a positive meaning towards business or to us.

This is what actually happens in The Law of Forward Motion. You are moving in forward motion with your business and doing many things to promote your business hoping that you are doing the right campaigns and you are tracking your marketing and all of a sudden business comes out of the woodwork from places you never would think of.

It is because you are moving forward that you are sort of creating a vacuum and pulling business along with you. It’s because of what you are doing to promote your business in one area that you are getting business in another area. That’s the best way I can explain it.

I don’t know if The Law of Forward Motion will ever pass you, but I do know that when you stop so does the vacuum and the forward motion. This is where the pain starts.

So never ever, ever stop the forward motion in your business and you will not self-inflict any pain on yourself.

It’s true and it’s real and can have a really positive effect or negative affect on your business and your life.

Let’s look at an old handle water pump for instance. You may have never seen one in real life, but surely you have seen one in an old western. You know the kind that you pump and pump to prime and then after a while you have a steady stream of water coming out.

This is what it’s like to keep the forward motion going in your business. Again never, never stop the forward motion in your contracting business. When you do it does cause pain because it will be like starting all over again. So never, never stop the forward motion.
