Ready to fall

I recently read an article about man learning to skate. He spoke of others he saw trying their hardest and realised he wanted to be like them. He was a beginner and wondered why these elite skaters never feel over on the ice. The man soon realised that these same skaters who did not fall over today, were the same skaters which fell over time and time again and had learned to stay on their feet. He then realised that working his hardest on the ice and trying not to fall would never get him to the place he desired. He would have to give his all while skating in order to draw out the best for himself. 

What do you think his friends and onlookers would be doing as he fell time and time again? They would laugh at him and make fun of him because they didn’t understand the transition he was making. Some who had been before him would know what he was doing and would encourage him. The emphasis of this article is to instruct the reader to realise that action is the only thing which brings positive progression. This doesn’t apply to every situation but many. If I continually wanted to maintain a blog and was concerned when no-one viewed my blog in the beginning, I wouldn’t be here today. All the hours spent writing articles and expressing views people could say it was for nothing. For me I knew somewhat what I wanted and I knew writing was what would get me there.

Sometimes we think in life why can’t this breakthrough just happen for us…The reason I seldomly doesn’t is because many choose not to act. I listened to a man speak in an interview recently and he was warning people about planning. He went on to say some try so hard to solve every eventuality before it occurs. What he was saying was sometimes you need to act. I see it as constructing the puzzle as you go. This doesn’t mean I have no goals or visions, it Just means I’m not concerned If I am not able to see everything before I start doing something.

Living and being live is far much different than being pre recorded. Living in the past won’t help, living in the present is right and living in the future is too hard.
