Don't Get Caught Up In The How
All too often we can be so caught up in how we are going to get somewhere or achieve something that we lose sight of the actual goal.
This happened recently with my wife and I, after our 12-month adventure travelling Australia in a caravan with our 2 kids, we decided to settle in Noosa Qld.
Initially, we discussed the goal for the new home we live in being 'Inspirational' and it had to 'feel' right.
Then over the coming weeks, it had to have a pool, be on the water, walking distance to the beach and cafes and a bunch of other demands.
When we finally found the house that 'felt' right, it didn't tick all the boxes on our list of demands.
It was what we originally set out as being our goal, it was 'Inspirational' first and foremost.
Keep your eyes firmly on the goal and it will allow you to get there following many different paths.
If one path doesn't work, you can move on to another path and ultimately achieve your goal.
Ease is a greater threat to progress than hardship.
Working like an elephant and eating like an ant or work like an ant and eat like an elephant which is better??
A lot of people use these statements even as prayer points .Do we now say life must be uncomfortable or is it abnormal if your life is already made easy?? An already made husband and an husband whose future is bright ,which is your pick?? A friend said ,the future must be bright now... Having things easy for you is not bad but the disadvantage is that you end up not appreciating it and worse of all you don't multiply it.
If you hustle your way up, your greatest desire would be to multiply it but if it was handed over to you ,most of the time your major desire would be to spend it.
The first man who won the highest money in who wants to be a millionaire Nigeria ,when asked what he used the money for ,he could not pin point any particular thing per say . He actually did lots of travelling. #spending
We are enjoined not to be complacent in our approach to life.
PS ; Without commitment you can't start and without consistency you cant finish. #life #elephant #ant #start #commitment #consistency
