MOTIVATION: IF YOUR SHIP DOESN'T COME IN, SWIM OUT TO IT!

IF YOUR SHIP DOESN'T COME IN, SWIM OUT TO IT!

Yes, it seems funny but just like a coin with two sides, it's also a serious statement.

For how long are you going to wait for the best time or the perfect opportunity?

For how long will you wait for the ship to get to you? Will you still wait for it to cruise by,set to pick you but not close enough for you to conveniently step in?

Swim out to its direction as soon as it gets closer.

Yes! Luck can change your status. But how often does it come by? Wishful thinking is okay but it should be just the starting point. That canoe of wishful thinking can't take you far. You need a plan and also need to take ACTIONS, not just wishing.

Each time you see the opportunity fading away, all you do is wonder if it will come back. But sadly enough, most times, it doesn't. Then you're stuck because you didn't rise up to take the challenge.

You have to rise up, consider carefully your options and then take hold of the opportunity.

At times, you'll have to get wet and swim your way to the ship. That may be the only way!

HOW DO YOU KNOW YOUR SHIP?

Well, there are two certain steps to consider in order to answer the question, viz;

# Identify what you're looking for: The first concrete step is to do a deep inner search of yourself. What do you really want out of life? With what kind of mirror do you view life?

You can't be in an ultimate search for a piece of material without knowing what it looks like, the form and structure and the likes.


So, identifying what it is you want or you're looking for will help you move a step closer to determine which opportunity to grasp or which ship is yours.

# Anticipate or be on the lookout for it: After identifying, you step forward to anticipate for it.

This entails looking out for it. You don't just sit or retire to your bed and await the opportunity to come crawling towards you. No! It's not done that way. You go out in search for it.

If you notice it's not coming in, it may be pulling away or off to meet Someone else who's more desperate and determined to be onboard than you. I'd bet you don't want that.

The pathway from where you are to where you want to be is hardly a  STRAIGHT LINE. You have to take hold of the opportunity propelling you towards what you want out of life.

To wrap it all, let's take a quick rundown of the words:

1) " If your ship"-- This typifies ownership. It's your ship, your desire, your aim, your goal.

No one will chase your goal for you. Not even your kinsfolk. So it's all up to you to do something about it.

2) "... doesn't come in..." : This simply means some opportunities might linger or at worse, fail to come.

In other words, your ship might fail to dock. It's now left to you to get it or watch as it disappears.

3) "... Swim out to it": It implies you take ACTION. Don't just relax and hope for another chance. It's your life, take it personally.

Once you discover how eager you are to get it, you'll know how far you're willing to swim out to it.

ARE YOU READY TO GET WET?

CAREER: JOB INTERVIEW: 7 EASY WAYS TO MAKE A GOOD FIRST IMPRESSION

JOB INTERVIEW: 7 EASY WAYS TO MAKE A GOOD FIRST IMPRESSION
Need I remind you the saying, " first impression lasts longer." Then, if truly you know this and you believe it holds( sure it does), you'll agree with me that making a good first impression is a serious issue that needs to be dealt with.
What you showcase determines the kind of response you receive. Should in case you come out offensively, say in an argument, then you leave the recipient with no other option than to receive it defensively.
Now, back to the matter in consideration, making a good first impression at JOB INTERVIEWS is simple but several people flop and at the long-run taint their chances of securing the job. Then you return to square one.
First impression apart from your resume/qualifications plays a very cogent role in determining whether you'd be singled out of the countless applicants for the job.
Now that you've realized how important making a good first impression is, I'll enjoin yo…

MOTIVATION: SETTING GOALS AND ACHIEVING THEM. HOW IT WORKS

However, how sad it is when you achieve short-term changes which therefore causes internal stress and you have no choice but to revert to your old patterns.

Well, it might interest you to know that you can make your new year resolutions/goals work this time around. All what you need to change is the approach and fortunately, that's the core of this article.

Without much ado, join me as we trek through the following aligned tips in making your new year resolutions work:


# PEN IT DOWN
" Products of the mind become concrete when they're written down. So always learn to pick up your pen and write."

Nobody will run with what they can't see. Your resolutions are like sandstones, until you put them into writing, they remain that way and if you linger in writing them down, they continuously disintegrate and become dust.
Besides, we remember what we record. Dawson Trotma…

BUSINESS ISSUES: HOW CAN I PROMOTE MY BUSINESS( a question most entrepreneurs rarely get answers to)

HOW CAN I PROMOTE MY BUSINESS? ( a question most entrepreneurs rarely get answers to)

EVERYDAY, we see different start-ups sprout. They begin with so much enthusiasm and zeal that gives their ' target audience' a sought of impression they will be on for a long time.

But, however, what we imagine or the   FIRST IMPRESSION we get isn't always the end result.

When these start-ups get hit with the frustration and failures on several attempts to promote their business, they allow the anger and bitterness that we all sometimes feel while on the job hijack their zeal and vision which makes their business divert from one of ascension to one of constant regression. This therefore births the ever- bulging option to fold up which they readily give in to.

To be candid, no business or start-up experiences a bump free ride to success. But this doesn't rule out the fact that it's possible to make headway.

To this effect, we've packaged, just for you, useful tips or strategies…
