Step By Step Life Is a Cinch
By Ozias Mucheriwa
When you want to set on a journey you do not wait until all the traffic lights turn green before you to start off. As one door opens you enter and wait for the next to open until you go through all the doors. Nature will never align all the pins before you at one time. They say that a journey of a thousand miles began with one step.
The majority of people on the planet today is content with the lives that they are leading. For some, the leanness of their purse is a source of constant worry and anxiety. Their deteriorating health conditions, collapsing relationships and an apparently bleak future are all factors making life unpleasant and unbearable for them. You could be identifying with some of these circumstances and seeing no solution in sight. It is sad to note that the average individuals are literally doing nothing to improve their conditions. Instead they resort to mourning and complaining. Complaining, it has been said since time immemorial, will not help alleviate the problem, rather, it saps all the energy to act out of your being.
Whatever situation that we find ourselves in, there are small steps that we can follow to extricate ourselves. These steps vary from one situation to another, but the truth is, through a consistent application of fundamentals people can slowly see themselves moving away from their unpleasant circumstances to the sunlit paths of joy and happiness. Overweight people who want to shed off some weight usually get discouraged by seeing the scale tilting in a significant way to the wrong direction and then think that it will take a lifetime before they normalize. They will probably try to do a one year process in a week’s time and get discouraged. It is only some small consistent steps that are needed to implement the changes necessary.
If it is the condition of a lean purse then one has to look at his or her spending habits and start to take small steps to rectify them. The most important part being the implementation of a different way of doing things and in this case a different approach to handling finance. There are many ways through which one can increase their earning ability and also cut some spending habits without necessarily waiting for a financial dilemma before a free spender is morphed into a skinflint. It all starts with small steps towards making a change in areas where change is imperative.
The main idea here is doing something that takes you to a place and not to sit grumpily with crossed fingers hoping for the situation to improve or the government to change policy or that guy to die before you can progress in life. Nothing outside of ourselves will ever guarantee an improvement in our situations. You cannot afford to wait upon political redeemers to improve your circumstance. It is only you that has your best interests at heart and only you can start taking small steps towards a change in your life. Politicians are also fighting to achieve their own ends and boost their poll numbers. Your destiny is in your own hands hence it is only you who can do yourself a favor by taking small steps.
Small steps towards your goal is what will take you there. All the traffic lights will never be green for you to start on your journey. Start now to take small steps towards altering your destiny.
