Best Elephant Recipe Ever

Best Elephant Recipe Ever | Yes, We RiseBest Elephant Recipe Ever: How to accomplish your dreams


Here's a silly question...why do we have BIG ideas and BIG dreams, but no BIG list of instructions to make them happen?

History and society tells us that with any big venture or activity we're supposed to have a plan. Before we make the first effort or endeavor we're supposed to have this big elaborate strategy for how we are going to make things happen. Now the irony is that 9 out of 10 times if we had the slightest idea about how to pull off the things that come to us we would have already done them!

So... here we sit... left hand vision, right hand no plan. Frustrated... Marinating on how to make the whole thing come together. Where are we going to find ALL of the money needed? How are we going to make ALL of the connections and relationships? When are we going to write ALL of the grants and proposals? What are we going to do to get ALL of the followers? Why aren't ALL of the listeners or readers buying our stuff? UGH!!

Well...the answer is ....YOU'RE NOT!! (We're not) At least, not IMMEDIATELY anyway. See...we all have to start somewhere. The Romans didn't go to sleep on the first and wake up on the second to an entirely new city. Everything takes time, patience and effort. Most importantly, it takes a willingness to do. That's all you need to start.

Stop trying to figure it ALL out...just say, "OK..what can I do now?"...and then just do that!!

If you are committed and your intentions genuine, and its been prescribed for you to do...it will happen. Our problem is that we expect for the entire thing to be dropped in our laps, nice neat and complete, just like the dream/vision/idea,  but that's not how things work. We have to start small.

When we take one action at a time or make an effort towards our end goal, that's when things begin to come together. Eventually, that one action or activity will lead to another...and then before we know it...we "cooking with grease" and  that BIG thing begins take shape and form. Money starts to come in, we meet the right people, the followers find you...it ALL comes together.

Now, just because it starts to come together, doesn't mean you don't need a plan. You just cant let the lack of answers to all of the questions stop you from starting.

There's an African Proverb that says "The best way to eat an elephant in your path is cut him up into little pieces."

Hope your hungry!

Peace, Joy and Love,
