#OnMonday: Living the Dream (Dream pt. 1)

SegunOnMonday: Living the Dream (Dream pt. 1)

Are you familiar with the popular saying that if your dream doesn’t scare you, it is not big enough? If you’re, good! If you’re not, you’ve not missed much!!

No matter the size of your dream, there will always be a drift, slight or huge between the dream and realisation. Before you ask me why, forces like: your potential, environment, background, emerging opportunities/challenges will always make the difference.

If success date is an appointment you can put on diary, everyone will do nothing except stay glued to the calendar for the date to come.

Your dream will almost certainly be the cornerstone of your success but be careful not to throw it out of the window in the face of unplanned forces.

I will try to translate this adage in my native:
“Planning to build an edifice like none ever seen is a tip of vanity”
If can’t manage your dream when you’re small, you will not do better when you’re big.

If your dream is to impact positively on people’s lives, don’t wait till you have millions, accommodate that dream in your day to day.

That is what I call living the dream!!!

Good morning

OnMonday: Hesitation

SegunOnMonday: Hesitation

Many times we come at crossroads to make decisions, that characterize the person we are or try to become. These decisions are consequentially positive or negative on many occasions varying on the expectation of the initiator or the person at the receiving end.

But on one side is art of hesitation, not part of the decision but influences the result tremendously.

Hesitation does more harm than good. When a matters needs determination, consider the probable outcome of your reaction to it, look at alternative and see if the result is acceptable.

To seek a counsel is nothing to be ashamed of not to seek one when you could is foolhardy.

Above all, whatever you’ve got to do, do it quick.

Thomas Huxley believes the same too when he said:
“Make up your mind to act decidedly and take the consequences. No good is ever done in this world by hesitation”.

Good morning, All the best!
