Down Up

The process may push you down before you are lifted. It may be like a child learning how to walk. He or she will visit the ground many times before eventually developing strength in the legs to walk perfectly. The falling and rising help to make the knees and legs of the child strong. A boxer that visits the canvas and gets up adds one more experience to his or her repertoire of experience every time he or she falls and gets up. The more you pull the catapult back, the more momentum it gathers and the longer the distance the stone in it travels. Have you seen two goats fighting? They run backwards to generate power. The process may look like you are retrogressing. Don’t panic. It’s preparation for your flight.


Don’t be afraid of making the investments because it looks like you are moving backwards. An additional two years in school for graduate studies may momentarily take you backwards financially. You may go into the negatives financially. You may have to continue with the student life of hassle for a period. You may appear to be going backwards relative to your friends. The business you are trying to build may take you backwards for a period. You may have to borrow money and live with debt for a period. You may have to deny yourself many comforts in life to save money to invest in your business. It may all appear like you are going backwards instead of going forward. Don’t worry about the people who are speeding past you in their vehicles while it appears you are trekking backwards. Your investment will give you speed. Your preparation will give you speed. The speed with which you will travel later will make up for the seemingly backward steps you are now taking.


You are growing through the investments you are making regardless of the circumstances and conditions around you. Your growth will soon reflect in everything around you. You will soon reap the reward of your education investments. You will soon see the fruits of your business investments. You will soon make money to pay off every debt you owe. You will soon be in position to afford all the desires of your heart and eyes. Don’t make the mistake of running with the crowd. You don’t need to run with them. Take your time to sharpen yourself. The sharper the edge of the cutlass, the more it can achieve with a given effort . Sharpening a cutlass is not fun on the cutlass. It’s a very painful exercise. What you can do in a year if you take your time to prepare will take people who appear to be running past you now several years to achieve. What is important is for you to have a destination you want to go in life. Do you want to spend another six years in school after your first degree to get a Ph.D.? Go for your dream. Don’t bother about what other people may achieve with their lives within the six years you to have to continue with the student life. They have their dreams they are chasing. Focus on your dream.


Don’t be afraid of taking a step back if that is what is required for you to make it to your dreamland. If you must call someone you are older than your boss to sharpen a skill under the tutelage of the person, do it. If you must walk away from a job with a big title and money and launch your dream project, do it. You may appear to have taken a step backwards. It will feel sometimes like a step backwards. Don’t be discouraged. Believe in your dream. Focus on your making it a reality. You will reap the harvest if you don’t abandon it. The harvest when it begins will make up for all you have put into it. You need the courage to walk through the nights. You need the patience to wait for the harvest. It will not happen overnight. Don’t allow frustration into your heart. It will weaken your hand if you do. Your lifting sometimes is in your going down. The investments may push you down before you are lifted. Don’t run away from the “down up” if that’s what the process requires for your turn your dream into a reality.
