Birds and Mountains
Today this question was put to me: "when is a bird BIGGER than a mountain"?
The answer is, when the bird is on your windowsill and the mountain in the distant background. Then your focus is on the bird and therefore it seems bigger.
How true this is in business. I have often come across some mountains, true, but more often come across birds. Birds which seem bigger than the mountains. Not only in our business does this happen, but in our daily lives as well. An arguement, an accident, a flat tire, not finding the keys, there are so many "birds" out there.
Now, look at it this way to make things more understandable. In this case, the "mountains" are goals, dreams, hopes, desires....whatever makes one think BIG, what we want and need to reach.
And then, when taking the steps to get these "mountains", suddenly a "bird" appears. Sitting close by. On the windowsill, or on the edge of ones glasses, or on the desk in front of us, or when we are looking at a certain screen.......
The "birds" take away the view of the "mountain". Hopelessness grows, despair, uncertainty, blockage and the world turns upside down. The excitement is gone, the hopes crash.
It is not easy to keep looking at the "mountain" day after day when nothing is happening. Instead of seeing dollar signs, we suddenly see "birds" and the hope of paying the bills at the months end dies!
Now, ...there is an answer to these moments. It will never be possible to avoid such "bird" moments, but whatever happens, get that "mountain" back into the picture! Hold it firmly in the back of the mind while chasing the "bird" away. Let the desire not to lose the view help to see the "bird" for what it is. When dealing with the "bird", keep thinking of the "mountain".
And....if that does not work........get someone over to help but whatever, keep the goal, the hope, the excitement always in front.
To our success
