Embarking on any project can easily become overwhelming, however, by keeping things simple and taking it one step at a time, you’ll be amazed how the next step seems to reveal itself, in due time.
A Journey Of A Thousand Miles Begins With One Step
I know it may sound a bit cliché, but this has proven true in so many aspects of my life. I am not saying that everything will be smooth sailing from the get go.
In fact, at times it has been pure chaos! In hind sight, I learned more during those times than when everything seems to be honkey dory.
Embrace Chaos And The Lessons It Carries
It’s almost like chaos is a lesson for the untrained mind. It’s a challenge for you to grow to the point where you need to be, in order to be able to take the next step, to where you want to be. Now I’m getting philosophical.
Think about it this way, how do you handle a challenging situation if you encounter something similar again? Will it be with the same feeling of confusion? Chances are, the next time around you’ll handle a once insurmountable task with relative ease.
The Untold Truth Of Confidence
True confidence is earned! You cannot buy it, nor are you born into it. It is based on merit. Of course there is the school of thought which advocates, “fake it till you make it”, but that seldom ends well.
Some people, seem to naturally radiate confidence. It seems like they were given the easy button. Never judge a book by its cover. You might be amazed at what they’ve had to overcome.
Don’t Be Afraid Of Detours
You may not be in the position to achieve a goal now, due to lack of a key element; money, education, experience, etc. Realizing this, many people give up or play the blame game.
Then there are the few who find a way to get what they lack. The rare gems who; take up a second job to get additional finance; intern voluntarily to get experience; invest in courses or get a mentor in order to acquire the necessary knowledge.
Many people talk a strong game, but very few follow through. The question is, which one are you?
This Is All That Matters
At the end of the day, it’s not about the amazing ideas, the great plans or magnificent goal. In fact, people seldom even see the steps you took, much less the obstacles you overcame. Ultimately, it all boils down one thing… Results!
