Take one step at a time

The world is fast changing everyday. The way things where 10 years ago is not the way things are today. The attitude of getting things done has also changed from the meek type to the aggressive get-it -done kind of approach.

People no longer labour hard physically but they think hard instead. We need to align our attitude to this paradigm shift and focus on being relevant today.

You know that social media is now like the hub of advertising but your works are not there and you continually harass people with your complaints of why your business has just suddenly stopped growing.

It is simple, you are still clinging on to old methods which have ceased to be productive. Come out of your old clothing and wear the leggings the other ladies are wearing these days. Be relevant — don’t give up yet, just change the method.

You will be amazed at what will happen. Then there is a group of visionaries who are almost going to the grave with ideas big enough to change the economy but are caged in their minds just because they are waiting for capital.

There is no capital for ideas that are not being exercised — my case is start where you are, start with what you have! There is no one ready to just give you cash for a lodged idea in your brain.

Start working towards achieving it then you will see people coming to partner with you.

We are not in the era of showing plans and getting cash no — even the bank will want collateral — no its no longer a hand shake but tonnes of affidavits and legal procedures to get you a thousand dollars.

If opportunities don’t present themselves to you then you have to create them. Don’t wait on the right time forever — get me right! I am not saying do not be calculative but you know it within your heart that there is no need to stall but you are still stalling because you fear the deep end.

There is never a perfect time but there is a prepared person living in time.

Your preparedness is the greatest opportunity you need to create an opportunity. Start from the shallow end and swim towards the deep end after you would have swam from the shallow end.

So don’t expect such huge amounts when you still can’t handle the smaller amounts, deal with reality not fantasy.

This is the time to move forward — one step at a time. You need to see where you are stepping also. Don’t let the shadows of the world’s changes consume you — come out in the open too.

There is no capital for ideas that are not being exercised — my case is start where you are, start with what you have! There is no one ready to just give you cash for a lodged idea in your brain

    The problem with these motivation articles is they all sound the same. If I had not seen the name of the author, chances are I would have thought I’m reading an article by Milton Kamwendo.
