“The Great Push”

Two friends were walking on the street, joking and laughing, and then one jokingly pushed the other….

Tare: Oooh funto,cuz am light abi, dont evn think u are strong..

Funto: what!! that small push and ur complaining

Tare: Ehn!, small push! unno wat, i’ll give you 100k if you push yourself

Funto: Woow! how possible is that! i can do it sha,small thing..

If you think about it, the hardest thing to push is yourself…Even if you are the World’s strongest man or you are as weak as a two-year old, it takes something special to push yourself.

The reason why people often find themselves in a particular place or position for a while is because they find it difficult to propel themselves forward (you have a lot to do on a particular day, yet u are having a difficult time getting out of the bed, in fact you spent d rest of the day on your bed, forgoing the important things u had to do, don’t lie, we’ve all experienced this before). No doubt, you can be a great source of inspiration or motivation to others, pushing others to get things done, yet you lack the same spice in your personal life.

Some people depend heavily on others to”ginger” them because their body and mind is lazy (which is its natural state and  always the case) So they need someone to hurry them up,remind them, sometimes shout and yell, before they can get things done..sometimes i fall into this category.

These are little and invincible issues that are so important to our practical living. Those that are able to get things done are mostly those that have control over their bodies, and their minds, they have that “GREAT PUSH” and usually are  very successful in the long and short run. 

It sounds easy but its very hard. It is not a one day thing, it is a habit that has to be cultivated, because naturally the body and mind is weak..and so constant action is essential, and so such things like Procastination for example should be avoided..

There is no doubt that those who have that Great Push are usually the most successful. Read the biography or study the lifestyle of the rich and wealthy people and you’d see that this is a key ingredient. They always get things done, they never ever fall back. Even our friend Funto could be an example..if only he could push himself, he would have been 100k richer.

    Really true in life we must continually encourage or give ourselves that”GREAT PUSH” just like King David of the bible. It necessary so as to move forward forgetting past success n failures. Thumbs up Micky!
