Gigantic Strides -- No More Crawling


Big, huge, enormous, vast, world-conquering, gigantic strides! That's what I'm taking today. No more mincing, toe-tickling increments.

We have not because we ask not. Then we have because we take. We make a way where there is no way. Because there's always a way.

We can be bogged down like everyone else, with tentative, hesitant, reluctant, ultimately failing baby steps. Falling down by the couch.

~Ooo, I tried it and I fall down. Now I don't think I can get back up. Crawling is good enough for me. I'll just crawl all my life.~

Piffle. Don't do it. Don't do it even if everyone you know does it. You're going to get nowhere by crawling. You demand something more.

I've been down like everyone, maybe worse than many. It happens. But then -- you know how confidence is -- it comes time to hulk out.

It's like in professional wrestling. The guy is whacking away at you and you look like a rubber chicken, till finally you become rigid.

And that's all she wrote for the guy whacking. Next stop, Graveyard! Because it's going to be a quick succession of vicious moves...

Gigantic strides. It's a great concept. Don't do anything halfway. Don't do anything tentatively. If you're ready to live, live NOW!

If you have a goal to achieve, achieve it posthaste. While everyone else is shuffling by, get in there and strut by like you own it. You do.

It's really true most of the time. The person who owns it is the one who claims it. We're talking conceptually, but it does work out.

And who's going to own true success like the person who takes gigantic, mind-blowing enormous steps? Set your course, don't back down!
