“Leave your excuses and live your dreams” ~ Paul Davis.
Over the past 9 days we have been on the series that focuses on the success habits every success-minded individual need to develop and I have been getting interesting feedbacks and comments. Thanks for following my daily posts. If at anytime you miss any of my post or you want to read any previous one, you can always find them on www.nicholasae.blogspot.com or www.nic4bags.wordpress.com. I will love to get your comments and contributions because I know you have a lot to share.
One of my ardent followers buzzed with a concern on success. His questions was how does the general adage “No hurry in life and slow and steady wins the race” connect to the issue of time in yesterday’s post? I am going to try and address this today.
While I was growing up, there was one popular proverb we played with in school, it says “Because the hunter has learnt to shoot without missing, birds have learnt to fly without perching”.
We must understand that life is evolving, things are changing, they are not as it used to be.
When people say no hurry in life, it does not mean you should be slow in your growth or pursuit of your dreams, neither does it mean you cannot fly if you have the ability to. You do not tell a child who just started walking to continue crawling because you feel he is too small to walk, if his bones can sustain him, he is good to go. What both advice (no hurry, slow & steady) mean is that get yourself prepared first for what you want to start cos’ if you don’t prepare enough and hurry it into, you will crash. That is the truth. But if you misunderstand them and you sit on your butt telling yourself that there is still time, am sorry to inform you, time waits for no man.
A good illustration is the picture on my DP (if you are reading from BBM or Whatsapp). Ordinarily, the Zebra cannot outrun the Lion but with the motorcycle, he can. But if the Zebra decides to stick with the old method of running with his legs, hmmm my guess is as good as yours.
For every man and woman, your responsibilities and expectations increases and grow as you do. The amount of money needed to sustain you some years back is not the same today, it has doubled, tripled and even more. If your income still remains the same, then you will be in great trouble.
It is your level of success that determines how much income you take home at the end of the month. And you will agree with me that new inventions and possibilities are opening up every day. People want to be part of the new happenings, employers want to use the latest tools in the market hence they seek individuals with such skills, customers want to associate with businesses that integrate latest developments. If you want to increase your level of success you must decide to start walking in areas where you have been crawling, running where you have been walking and flying where you have been running.
Someone said “good things come to those who wait but better things come to those who go out and get them”.
The world awaits you!

Have a lovely Wednesday!
I honour you.
