4 Lessons from “The Day I Walked to Work.”

| | ,


Someone will ask! What do you mean, “The Day you Walked to Work?”

Did I walk to work? You will find the answer to this question as you continue to read.  

It is a long story; I feel like you need to know more about this particular journey. As I walked up the hill, I realized that so much filled my mind. I cared so much about everything and did so little to change my situation.

I just wondered which direction I needed to take to change my situation. I was hurting, confused, and did not know what was happening to me. 

I needed to discover myself. I needed to know who I was and what I was becoming. I needed to understand why I was doing what I was doing. 

I needed to understand why I woke up so early each morning to report to work. 

What I found out about:

  1. Fear.
  2. Value.
  3. Time.
  4. Knowledge.

The opposite of fear is COURAGE, and courage is the door that only you can open. No one else can do it for you.

Value is not only what you are giving but also what you are getting. What new ideas, skills, knowledge, and relationships have you build in the past year?

Develop a pre-decision on how you are going to spend your time.

Decide who to learn something from because you cannot learn from anybody and everybody.

On this day, I walked to work with tears flowing down my chicks, and it got worse when I realized I had walked past my workplace without even noticing.

I turned back and walked through that steel gate, late but determined to report to my work station. I went straight to my desk and sat there like all was fine, and yet I was in total confusion and hurting. I knew I could do better.

Then I discovered something about myself. FEAR was my number one problem; secondly, I always wanted to please people. 

The answer is YES; I did walk to work. 

The journey was long. I got tired, but I kept walking until I got to my workplace.

What I discovered about fear?

Fear kills dreams.

Fear tells you what you can and can’t do.

Fear decides how fast your steps should be.

Fear is what is holding you back from realizing your full potential.

Fear controls your thoughts and feelings.

What lessons did I learn?

You can do it if you believe you can.

You can achieve anything that you set your mind on. 

The day I walked to work is a true story; I set my mind on getting to work, and yes, I did accomplish my mission. 

It got to a point when I felt exhausted and bitten, but I kept pushing my body.

Imagine how much you could change your life if you decided to focus your energy on the most critical tasks.

As I walked to work, making left and right turns, and sometimes moving in a straight line, I realized nothing in this life comes easy. There are no straight lines of success or failure. At some point, you will experience some curves and maybe may change your direction completely.

Everyone wants to be successful, but very few are willing to pay the price.

Let me tell you a story.

What you can see is what matters and is what you get.

Two men stood by the window on a rainy season. One saw a lot of mad since it was raining, and the other saw a great harvest.

Someone has gone through that situation; others are experiencing it right now, while some are yet to share it.

What you see is what you get. You are the driver of your own life.

Let me share this. Please watch this till the end.
