Exponential Success is your capacity to think differently, to be unorthodox and to achieve the ‘impossible’.
What do you think makes some people more and more successful over time? The answer, I believe, is momentum. Momentum is the key to exponential success. The Exponential Success Score Card is a great tool to determine your your exponential success.

What is Momentum?
Before going further, we must agree on what momentum is. Here is a good definition of momentum: the strength or force that allows something to continue or to grow stronger or faster as time passes.
As you can see, when something has momentum, it doesn’t just move, but accelerates. That’s why it can allow you to succeed exponentially.
Having momentum can make you get more than you deserve. The effort you put in might be a 10, but the result you get is a 20.
Lacking momentum, on the other hand, can make you get less than you deserve. The effort you put in might be a 10, but the result you get is only a 5. This is frustrating because you work hard for only a small return.
How to Build Momentum
Now that we have seen the importance of momentum, how can we build it?
If we assume that “what you do” is an object, you must apply force to it to make it move and then apply more force to make it move faster over time.
Let’s take a look at how to do that:
1. In the Beginning
The way to start building momentum is to have some quick wins. Quick wins give you the motivation to move forward. It gets things moving.
This is the logic behind the Debt Snowball method. The method says that, in order to be debt-free, you must pay off the smallest debt first. Then you move to the second-smallest, the third-smallest, and so on.
It is important to have some quick wins to start building momentum. Don’t tackle the big challenges first; start with the smaller ones instead. The sense of victory will motivate you to move forward. A Career Coach will help you attain the small victories while guiding you in putting together plans for tacking the bigger ones.
2. Over Time
Having some quick wins will help you start. But you need more to accelerate.
The best formula I have found on building momentum is:
Focused intensity over time multiplied by luck.
Let’s take a look at the components:
- Focus: don’t be all over the place. Instead, focus your effort.
- Intensity: be intense in what you do. Give your best effort every time.
- Over time: do it for years. Be persistent.
- Luck: like it or not, there are factors that are beyond your control. If they work in your favour, they can multiply your results. Some people call it luck.
Why does this formula work? Because it leads to you applying big force on what you do over a long period of time. As a result, it will move and accelerate.
Check yourself against the components above. Which one do you lack the most?
