Push-ups for 2014

Let’s think about push-ups, for a moment, before we get involved in the next year.

If you got down on the floor, right now, how many push-ups could you do? Six, ten, twelve. Let’s say you can do ten. Then, wait two weeks and try it again. How many? Probably ten, again.

But, if you do ten today, and try again, tomorrow, and the next, how many do you think you could be doing after two weeks? Probably thirty, forty, or more. Why? Because the muscles in your shoulders and your arms become stronger with each day’s attempt. You are conditioning them to respond to a greater challenge each day and the daily increase in the number of push-ups you can do is only a small example of what you can accomplish in a specific period of time which, today, seems almost impossible.

In Case You Missed It

Fámúyîdé Oláwálé @famuyideolawale "Even if you miss the target, you will still hit something"

That tweet summarises my evaluation of my life in 2013.

I believe dreams, visions, and ideas are all things that drive us as individuals. We set goals, we make plans on how to go about our various goals, investing time, money and energy, cultivating this our goal, nourishing it daily. We hope that it will be the breakthrough, the big break. We give up personal comfort, sacrificing lots of things because we believe that this goal/target must work.
