Words that Shine goes to Central Australia,
Central Australia is a landscape that is hot, dry and harsh. It is an environment of its own special beauty. Typical of desert climate it can be very hot during the day and the nights can also be very cold.
Before embarking on the journey of a working visitor to such a remote part of Australia I had a mountain of work to achieve or so I thought. One of my tasks as treasurer for the local Toastmasters club was to prepare an annual treasurer’s summary for the next business meeting. I put it off and put it off and put it off. It was a mountain in my mind. I thought it was going to take ages to do and that it would be so complicated. However when I did it – it took less than an hour because the figures were already compiled in the spreadsheet cashbook that I had been keeping all year.
I couldn’t believe how much agony my mind had caused myself. Have you ever made a mountain out of a mole hill? Have you procrastinated and procrastinated about certain projects? Are you guilty, a repeat offender I know I am.
No more procrastination – no more. See the mountain, accept the mountain and love the mountain.
A mountain maybe admired or feared. Is it an obstacle or the destination? Do you climb it? Go around it? Tunnel through? View it? Or find the gap? In this instance I see the gap. As you proceed through the gap or the task at hand, quite often it is far easier than you ever imagined. Even when challenges occur you handle them on the go.
First thing to do is to start and when you do, the mountain will reveal its gap and you will complete the task to success.
The Words that Shine Experience challenges you to set in motion the idea of the path through the gap and soon your mountain of tasks will be successfully behind you.
Living life with passion
