The Next Positive Step(s)


I am one of those people that are unlikely ever going to be vegetarian in any form at any point in life. I love eating meat you see and hence why this popular saying resonates very well with me. “How do you eat an elephant?….one bite at a time“. (I have no plans on eating elephant meat, for the records. lol).

You can either think of the monstrous animal or think of just the piece of meat on your plate.

Some people recommend that you break down the big problem into very small individual tasks- which, if you are good with this, then no problem. But usually, when you are near breaking point, you are already sapped of the ability to logically break down the solution into actionable points. Hence why I recommend simply taking ‘The Next Positive Step’ that presents itself in the direction of your goal.

Sometimes we wait for the right combination of circumstances to tackle, the problem, no!

Today, what singular step can you take along the line of the option of actions you have decided on?

Today, what singular step can you take along the line of the option of actions you have decided on?And these steps/opportunities tend to just show up without a consistent structure, each time they show up, take them; as long as it is positively along the path of your big solution. After you take a couple positive steps, the oxygen you gain from making a little progress will help you strategize a little further and you will take one step after another, until the day, your giant is all swallowed up. Catch you soon.

Face up to the Situation


Really want to get out of the current rot! Stop cowering in that corner and staying in bed weeping your eyes out.

Get up and look your problem in the eye! I personally believe you physically should stand up to be able to look your problem in the eye. The good thing about standing up is that it enables you to visualise the fact that you are physically bigger than or equal to your problem, or at the minimum realise that your problem is not as large as it is when you are cowered down in the corner it has got you into. 

face-up

Face the brutal FACTS of your situation. 

In an analysis of some of the most successful corporate leaders in the world, you will like this – Jim Collins renown researcher in the field of corporate leadership established that the key difference between the most successful corporate leaders and their lesser successful colleagues is their ability to face the brutal facts of the situations their organizations were at. They want the facts, the statistics, the actual implications; they rejected, the feel good, warm, encouraging feeling that those who love you tend to want to bring when they see your situation and realise that they are probably incapable of helping you too. 

If you are still living in or seeking the warm comforts of words and expressions by people, the eternal optimists that assure you that things will get better and just to weather the storm and it’s going to be fine on the other side. Then you sure are not the kind of person, I intend to communicate with via this medium- because you need to get tired and frustrated with consolations that you and the giver know means absolutely nothing, if you truly are intent on getting over this situation.
