Think Right

Continuation of Don't give up your DREAM

Take a break, if you must, but don't give up

Finally, we could go no further. The pain and fatigue was unbearable. We had to catch a nap – it was past midnight. One hour of sleep, all cuddled up like puppies for warmth, and then we moved on. 

Soon the morning came. But there was no time to appreciate the sunrise. Our water was all gone and the day brought with it unbearable heat and nasty irritating little flies which were intent on getting into your nose or your ears. It was so hot you could feel the heat embracing your face. 

We were getting dehydrated by now. It was so bad you could eat the salt off our faces. All the sweat had dried up. Had it been any other day I would have laughed out loud at seeing everyone walking wound with a white powder on their face. But right then my tongue was sticking to the roof of my mouth and laughing was very difficult. 

By now, everyone was wishing they had not had to carry the heavy AK47. It seemed to have gained an extra 5 kilos since we had begun. The straps had slowly dug into the flesh across the shoulders and the back. Every step was accompanied by some pain in one part of the body or other. Every part of the body was crying out for attention. But we had to move on… “small steps to success.” 

By mid morning we were utterly exhausted. Some dragged their riffles behind them like unwanted tails. Others had taken off all they could for the heat. We were as dry and shrivelled as prunes. We were a sorry sight for defence officers. But right then it was more about survival than about dignity. 

Finally there
Finally, a few minutes to midday…we arrived at the base. Only then did I notice how horrible I smelt. I had no idea I could stink so bad. But first things first despite the smell… water… food….and a bath…in that order!

The journey of a thousand miles...
So, you see, we took small steps to success all along that hike. Together, they added up to hundreds of thousands of small steps. But we might have chosen not to take the first step. We might have stopped at any point along the way. That would have meant that we would not have gotten to our destination. 

There were also obstacles along the way. But with each small step they were overcome. 

There were frustrations, fears and uncertainties. But with each small step they were crushed. 

There was hardship and danger, but with each small step and focus on the desired destination it was conquered.So you see, success is no mystery. 

It takes only one small step to succeed. 

Because, as the Chinese philosopher Lao-tzu said: “A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step.”

Have you taken that one step today?

Happy Weekend my dear
