How do you eat an elephant?
Wednesday, May 23, 2012
When things are tough or a task appears to be overwhelming, I think of this question: How do you eat an elephant?
It seems preposterous. Who would want to eat an elephant? And better yet, even if someone wanted to, who COULD eat an elephant. They are huge!!!
The answer, simply, is: one bite a time.
Weight loss and a healthy lifestyle- this is my elephant. My goals are not something I can complete all at once, no more than I could pop an entire elephant in my mouth as a snack.
My goals will come to me, but only in small increments- little bites.
I keep in mind that no matter how long the journey, each step I take forward moves me in the right direction. Each bite of the elephant makes the task smaller and less overwhelming.
Progress will happen over time, I just have to keep going.
From the wise man, Confucius “ it doesn’t matter how slow you go, so long as you do not stop."
I am not stopping. I will find a way to recharge my batteries when they get low and I will keep going and going and going and going and going and going...
