You can't cross a sea
by merely staring into the water.
Here's the scoop on Rabindrath:
Rabindrath Tagore was born in Calcutta, India to a wealthy family. He started to explore writing poetry at 8 years, and was first published at 16. Tagore was also the very first non-European and the only Indian to be awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1913.
SO- Why do we stare into the water?
When you are ready to take the plunge, make sure you’re setting out on the best possible path...
Do you have the tools, resources and support that YOU need to be successful? Are you prepared to reach your potential?
Where do you start when you’re ready to cross?
Don’t swim against the current, and be wary of treading water for too long. There's no better time to take that first step than right now. The best way to beat the procrastination bug is to do something! Squash inaction with an action!
What if you get tired when you’re half way across the sea? Do you stop swimming?
Growing up at our family cottage, I had a goal of swimming across the lake. I found, over and over, that once I’d make some distance, I’d lose my breath and need to turn back.
Have you ever tried swimming on your back? It can be a great way to catch your breath and take some time to think about what you need to do next. Move fast, try new things and adapt. Don't focus on problems. Find solutions.
Look at the situation differently or try something new to get to the outcome you want. It's there waiting for you...
How do you keep motivated & in motion?
Think of the last time you were in a canoe - the longer, stronger and more consistent strokes you made, the easier it was to continue, as you built momentum.
Your first try is usually not your last. Think in & outside the box. Look at a multitude of solutions. Your goals won't fall into your lap. An optimistic outlook & calm approach attract solutions. Your dreams are at your fingertips.
