In a Row or Becoming a Wall?

Written by Julie Jordan Scott

There is a phenomenon that never ceases to amaze me. I have observed it many times with countless individuals, businesses, teachers, churches, non profits and may occur in any setting where individuals or groups have a vision. A vision for something grand and glorious. A vision that will have an amazing impact in their lives andrepparttar lives of others. Then what happens? "I am getting my ducks in a row" comesrepparttar 101941 response. Ah, yes. The planning to plan some more and get it all perfect so thatrepparttar 101942 vision will for sure reach its magnificent best. That sounds like a respectable plan. And somehow it is not uncommon that becoming enamored with creatingrepparttar 101943 plan becomes more powerful than putting repparttar 101944 plan into play. The gettingrepparttar 101945 ducks in a row runsrepparttar 101946 risk of building a wall withrepparttar 101947 ducks. Instead, grow towards getting repparttar 101948 ducks to fly in a V formation so that they get where they are going exponentially faster, stronger and more effectively. Canadian Geese arerepparttar 101949 most famous for flying in a V formation. Scientist S. Sample notes, "the lead bird is creating a turbulance wave that actual assistsrepparttar 101950 birds behind it. The further back you are inrepparttar 101951 formation, repparttar 101952 less energy you need inrepparttar 101953 flight. Lead birds do rotate to keep exhaustion from happening." The Geese naturally make this formation. They do not push to make it happen, they share inrepparttar 101954 leading ofrepparttar 101955 group, and they get where they are going with enough energy to completerepparttar 101956 essence of their mission.

Going To Another Country

Written by Jos van Doorn

That can happen. You're living in your own country. You're working like hell. But you keep on struggling. Nothing changes. No big money.

What can you do? Stay where you are and keep on working? Sure. You can. And with it you'll get real frustrated. You won't live long.

Is there an alternative? You bet there is. Go to another country. And there start all over again. Get your life in order there.

I know. That's difficult. It's difficult to decide to leave you own country and go to another country. You're scared to go away.

You seriously think about going to another country. And then you come up with a lot of reasons why you can't do that. Why you have to stay.

You're thinking about your family, aboutrepparttar house you bought, or maybe aboutrepparttar 101940 car you have. Must you leave that all behind?

And then what's going to happen to you when you are in that other country? Can you live there or must you be afraid of gangster and other criminals?

And then there is your job. You're very much frustrated. But you've got such a good job. You've been in that job for many years.

Don't think. Just go away. Of course you find a lot of reasons why you can't go away. That's a human nature. But there is no reason for staying.

Think about it. There is only one good reason. And that reason tells you to go away. You are fed up. You're frustrated. You want to change that.

Is it difficult to go away? Do you need a lot of money to go away? Must you make a lot of preparations to go away? No, no, no.

It's not difficult to go away. Just step on a plane and fly to that other country. You arrive in that other country and have a look around.

Do you need a lot of money? That depends onrepparttar 101941 country you pick. But in most countries you come a long way with $ 300.

How long do you want to stay in that country? Six months? So for staying there six months you only need $ 1,800. That's not much.

What preparations? Your house will not run away. Your car stays there. What is there to prepare? Insurances? Forget about them.

The only thing you must do is decide to what country you want to go. This is an advice I can give to you. Find a country different from your country.

Suppose you're living inrepparttar 101942 West. Then go to a developing country. That's what you can do still at home. Find a good country.

Find a good developing country where you can find a decent job. And whererepparttar 101943 standard of living is good. Go to that country.

Have a plan. You go to that country. At first you look around. You plan to stay there maybe six months. Go back to your own country after six months.

In your own country you can find a temporary job. There you can make some money. When you've got enough money then go again to that country.

Look further in that country. See what you can do. See whether you can find a job. See whether you can make a living there.

You have got a job in your own country. You've got a talent. Use that job, use that talent. And find a way to use it in that other country.

Believe me. That's all that it takes. Go to that other country. Find a job there. You will find a job there. And stay there.
