In my last several articles I have shared with you that we can achieve huge milestones with our lives, despite societal stigma and our apparent limitations. In today’s article, I want to share something with you that I has helped me to accomplish goals, a little at a time.
To share what has helped me I will use a visual analogy.
The visual analogy has helped me with the experience of achieving milestones in my life.
Approximately 10 years ago, when I started training at a martial arts school I had a conversation with my Sensei – instructor. What he shared with me during that 5 minute conversation has stuck with me over the years. He said, “Becoming a black belt is like baking a cake.” He said, “What I do is give you the ingredients to bake that cake. Your job is to bake the cake.”
Although my Sensei was referring to the process of becoming a black belt, the principle of baking a cake can be used whenever I set out to accomplish a goal or achieve a milestone in my life.
Consequently, I realize that whenever I want to accomplish a goal or achieve a milestone – in my life – I need to gather the right ingredients (have specific objectives). Once I have the ingredients, I need to devise a plan that will enable my ability to mix the ingredients together. I then need to apply time and energy into the process of mixing the ingredients together before I am able to bake my cake…
accomplish a goal or achieve a milestone in my life.
